It's that time of the year again!
It is that time of the year when every big and small shop has colourful threads dangling on display, waiting to be purchased. Knowing that in essence, they symbolize an emotion that is sacred and irreplaceable.
Okay, sorry, no more word play!
But we know that you obviously guessed it by now.
It is Raksha Bandhan!
Celebrated on the full-moon day of the Hindu month of Sravana (July/August), this festival celebrates the love of a brother for his sister. On this day, sisters tie rakhi on the wrists of their brothers to protect them against evil influences, and pray for their long life and happiness. They in turn, give a gift which is a promise that they will protect their sisters from any harm. Within these Rakhis reside sacred feelings and well wishes.
Celebrate this Raksha Bandhan with The Style Salad’s elaborate range of rakhi goodies and gift boxes. Whether you are the brother or the sister, this is your one stop solution for all your ‘Raksha Bandhan needs’.
Lets start with Rakhis.
We have Funky Metal Rakhis. Handcrafted and quirky, these rakhis come in a large variety that will surely strengthen your bond as siblings.
However, if you are looking for a more sustainable option, we have the Beej (Plantable Seed) Rakhi and Eco Friendly Thread Rakhi. The Eco Friendly Thread Rakhi is crafted skillfully and is packed with utmost love and care.The Rakhis come with a special message, for you to convey your loving wishes to your brother. By buying these Rakhis, you can support local artisans and help keep the ancient Indian handicraft alive.
The Beej Rakhi comes embedded with Tulsi, Amaranthus, and Purslane seeds + Roli-Chawal. Wrapped in a box and an envelope made of waste cotton that is 100% biodegradable, these rakhis are handcrafted by artists and farmers of Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan.
Talk about all-round sustainability!
Next up, we have our speciality, curated gift hampers.
We have the Blush Gift Box, the Dear Sis Gift Box and the Sis/Bhabhi Gift Box. Your love for your sister is unfathomable. Each of these boxes is carefully curated by our experts and they have strived hard so as to make sure that these boxes come close to conveying the immense love for your sister. For instance, the Dear Sis Gift Box contains a Dear Sister Banana Fibre Towel, Pecan Coffee Dragees, Pink Caribbean Hand Cleansing Gel, a Sweetest Sis Mug and a Zodiac Soap Bar. We guarantee you, she will love each of these things! Go check out the other boxes too!
On that note, we believe that ours is the generation that is about doing everything differently. So, why not do Raksha Bandhan a little differently? Who says only sisters deserve gifts?
Gifts are awesome and everyone deserves a little surprise every now and then!
Why should only sisters have all the fun, right? :P
And guess what? We heard you.
With The Style Salad, you will have a range of gift boxes not only for your sisters, but your brothers as well. We have the Hey Bro! Gift Box, the Dear Bro Gift Box, the Fitness Junky Bro Gift Box and the Super Hero Bro Gift Box.
Loaded with a lot of love but most importantly, with amazing goodies, we don’t have one ounce of doubt that your brother will not only be surprised, but will also share the chocolate that comes in the gift box (kidding, you will still have to fight for it :P).
The Style Salad wishes you and your family a very happy Raksha Bandhan.
May the joy only increase and the bonds get stronger :)
