Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

It’s that time of the year again when our siblings actually start behaving themselves around us because they know Raksha-Bandhan is on its way and so are their gifts! No matter how much we want to practice our body-slam stunts and crib about them, about every petty thing- we’d be ready to give ‘em our kidney in the blink of an eye! (But not the charger or anything close to us!)

Many siblings are surviving long-distance relationships too and on this auspicious day, they’re majorly missed because of all the chaos, laughter and the main attraction- GIFTS!

There also are times when we’re so busy adulting that it slips out of our minds to go out and grab something for them or to put in some thoughts into a gift. It just happens and we’ve all been victims of it, no matter how much we love these pesky beings! But the distance or a time-crunch shouldn’t be an excuse to not celebrate this day so to make things easier for all of you, we have curated a list of 7 websites which are the ultimate saviour! Check ‘em out.

Ferns N petals

Ferns N Petals is one of the most popular stores for flowers arrangements and gifting items and they’re a trusted brand when it comes to delivering your order on time, too! Their rakhi collections and gift boxes are available on their website, just in case you can’t make time to physically head towards a store. Take your pick from the wide range of options they’re offering and we’re sure, your siblings will treat you well at least for the next 7 days!

They also delivery mithai so in case you want to pamper someone’s taste-buds or add a ‘sweet’ touch to your gift, look no further than IGP.

Their items are super durable and they do deliver to most of the places. Take your pick and add from the many gift items this store has, to bribe your siblings for future purposes.

Floweraura

Another gem from the crowding online stores, Floweraura is where your search for the perfect gift ends!

Pick from their eccentric rakhi range and trust us, it’ll be a ‘dear-diary’ moment for them. The collections here are absolutely customized for millennials as well as for the elders, who enjoy tradition and you can never go wrong with it.

We believe that the best part about Raksha-Bandhan is, that it’s not traditionally about an elder brother and his sisters anymore- it’s about anyone at all from any walk of life, who has been your guardian angel, some way or the other.

Can be your nanny, carpool bhaiyya, security guards at your apartment doors- you got our point and honestly, this tie actually joins communities together! So put a smile on those faces and there’ll be no better feeling than that.
