Looking to buy something for your sister this Rakhi and confused by the slew of options available ? Fret not, we are here to help.
Raksha Bandhan is the one festival where brother and sisters, despite all their nudging and fighting, show love and affection; where the brother pledges to protect his sister for life. It is a festival of love and the brother often shows it by giving his sister a gift.
So for all you brothers who are confused as to what to gift to your sister, here are a few suggestions:
If your sister has not bought a phone recently, you can give her the best and the most practical option in the market – the OnePlus 6, which was launched a few months back in India and has got a good response from everyone.
The affordable flagship phone with the notched display comes with 6GB/8GB RAM options and comes with storage of upto 256GB. The RAM options are paired with a Snapdragon 845 processor. This is a great-looking phone and is enough to make sure your sister doesn't need a phone for a long time.
Price: Rs 34,999 - 39,999
Sony XB30 Bluetooth Speaker
With the flashy colours and LED light, this one really is eye-candy and your sister will love it.
The slim LED lights and the “strobe” lights might look gimmicky to some.
Price: Rs 8,600
Marshall FBA Major II Wireless Headphone
Looking to gift your sister a pair of good headphones? This is the best and the most practical option in the market. The headphones are good build quality and the sound is at par with much expensive headphones.
The sound on this speaker is amazing, with great highs and mids. Even if the sound is still not enough for you, there is an Extra Bass mode to further up the bass.
Price: Rs 7,999
In-the-Ear: RHA MA650
If your sister prefers in-the-ear headphones, these headphones from RHA deliver an accurate, clear listening experience.
For under Rs 8,000, RHA has given a premium treatment compared to the MA650. The neckband understandably gets a rubberised touch, while the sound drivers (earbuds, in this case) get aluminium finishing.
For affordable in-the-ear Bluetooth headphones, this is the best you can give her.
Price: Rs 6,500
Fujifilm Instax Mini 9
Have a sister who likes to collect memories? This instant polaroid camera comes in very appealing colours.

Price: Rs 4,390
FitBit Charge 2
If your sister is into fitness, you could give her something useful with the FitBit Charge 2.
The Fitness band comes with automatic wrist-based heart rate tracking to better measure calorie burn all day. Along with that, it uses simplified heart rate zones (fat burn, cardio and peak).
Price: Rs 11,990
