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!

Rakhi Bazaar

This is another website you can count on if you’re into an annoying long-distance relationship with your siblings or whoever you hold in this regard. Their hampers and rakhi range is something which’ll spoil you for choices and bring smiles for sure. They are also famed for their timely delivery so you needn’t worry about missing out on surprising your kin.


Another website to our rescue, IGP has kick-ass rakhi packs and their other gifting articles are available for all age groups! They have an interesting collection of everything we usually look for, during the times of festivities so get clicking to grab the best ones to spread the cheer. 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.

Pipa Bella

Known for their cracker deals and quirky rakhis, Pipa Bella has been one of our top choices when it comes to selecting the best for our siblings! 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.


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

You’ll love how they’ve come up with such fun rakhis and the cards they have are absolutely awwdorable. They do deliver here in the city so check ’em out if you’re exploring your options at the moment.


If you think your sibling is crazayyy, then, only an offbeat rakhi can match up to their personality and for that, Bigsmall has your back! 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.

Lucknow's love affair with kites is an age old one. Patang Bazi has for long, been so much more than just a sport for the people of Lucknow, we know it as one of our many 'shaukh'. The Nawabs are known to be a flag bearer of kite-flying, who had a huge contribution to the modern sport, that has the same charm as years ago.
