The festival celebrating the beautiful brother sister bond is finally around the corner. Siblings look forward to this beautiful day to acknowledge their bond of love. The celebration with Rakhi, gifts and sweets indeed makes the day a lot more joyous and celebratory.
However, the most exciting part always remains the unique Rakhis sisters pick for their brothers. With fashion taking a toll on everything, Rakhi, too, has seen a gradual shift to cope up with the modern trends and now, there are various kinds of Rakhis available in the market that are unique, stylish and class-apart. Here are 9 types of Rakhis that are trending and are sure to make a significant show during Rakshabandhan 2019.
1. Stone Studded Lumba Rakhi
These Rakhis are specifically for the sister-in-laws. The stone studded Rakhi are inspired by stone studded jewellery and are hence, very feminine. Not only your dearest brother deserves a special Rakhi but your lovely Bhabhi deserves to own one too. Tie a Lumba Rakhi on the wrist of your sister in law and share the promise of infinite love and blessings.
2. Zardosi Rakhi
Although Zardosi is not a new design, but it never goes out of trend because of its celebratory appeal. These Rakhis have the Zardosi design on it. It can be the traditional design, or modern ones as well but essentially it is silver thread embroidery on red velvet and satin cloth. For the modern touch, pearls and stones are used.
3. Cartoon Rakhi
For your younger brother and cousins who absolutely love cartoons, these Rakhis are the best. There are many cartoon Rakhis that are available these days, from Chota Bheem, Ben10, Doraemon and many more. They can play with these Rakhis after the celebration is over too.
4. Handcrafted Rakhi
Handcrafted Rakhis or DIY Rakhis can be the best Rakhi for your brother. Crafted with a lot of love by you, it can never go wrong as it has a personal touch. Since, you are making it on your own, you can choose any design you want. Show your talent and creativity to your brother and win his heart.
5. Diamond Rakhi
This Rakhi, go an extra mile for your dearest brother and give him a special Rakhi this festival. Buy a good American diamond stone and get it fixed in your Rakhi. Your brother for you is definitely one in a million and only a diamond Rakhi is the perfect one for him
6. Religious Rakhi
For a spiritual and religious brother, you can get Rakhis in the shape of OM and swastika. One can even use a Rudraksha stone in the Rakhi along with a Mauli thread which is considered auspicious by Hindus. Tying this Rakhi on your brother's wrist will keep him safe and sound with all the blessings of the Lord.
7. Pearl Rakhi
Pearl Rakhis are stylish and classy, something that is loved by everyone at first sight. The classic Rakhi never goes out of trend. Pearls are very beautiful and for a lovely brother and sister relationship, pearl Rakhi brings a sophisticated appeal.
8. Golden/Silver Rakhi
Gold and silver are considered very auspicious colours in the Hindu religion. Hence, for an auspicious occasion like Rakhi, only golden and silver Rakhi can be the best option. You may find amazingly unique designs in these Rakhi online and in stores that may or may not include beads or stones as the thread itself is a very good choice.
9. Bracelet Rakhi
These are beautiful Rakhis that can be worn after the conclusion of the festival too. They are stylish and look absolutely gorgeous as well. These bracelet Rakhis have only beads along the thread and never go out of style.
Rakhi is all about celebrating the relationship, love, good food and lots of gifts. Something as stronger as a brother sister relationship deserves a lot of respect and positivity. As the sister ties a beautiful and stylish Rakhi around her brother’s wrist praying for his success and good health, we hope this year's Rakhi festival too will end nicely on a happy note.
