Celebrating Raksha Bandhan for Long-Distance Siblings

Raksha Bandhan History

When we are little, it’s mostly an up-and-down relationship with our siblings. One minute we were best friends, and the next we were fighting over toys or the biggest piece of cake (because when you were little, every crumb seemed to matter). But as we grow up, busy with our own lives, the amount of bickering reduced, and you find yourself missing your sibling.

And as we’ve grown up and become an adult, navigating through life and its hurdles, we know whatever problems we have, siblings will always be there to lend their support and cheer you on to help you through the ordeal. And what a blessing it is, to get someone that will always have your back and help you, or at the very least, give consolation in the hard times.

Raksha Bandhan is coming on 11th August 2022, and ideally, you’d want to celebrate it with your sibling in the same place. But unfortunately, that’s not always possible. Education, work commitments, and other things sometimes get in the way.

Photo prints

If your sibling is a creative soul, instead of giving them a photobook, you can give photo prints instead. Compared to a photo book, photo prints are more versatile, so they’re like a blank canvas for creative people.

From gallery walls, scrapbooks, to a college, photo prints can be made into a whole other form of art. Give your sibling the freedom to make art with the photos, and maybe you’ll be surprised with what they come up with!

If your sibling has a penchant for home decor and interior, wall art is a gift that not only would be greatly appreciated but also much loved. Make it more personal and thoughtful by printing a photo of both of you. This Rakhi festival will bring more love and closer to the brother-sister relationship.

Choose your favorite moment with your sibling (for example, birthday, graduation, or maybe a road trip), and make it into wall art. Or, if your sibling is a photographer, why not use their images? There’s nothing a photographer loves more than seeing their work appreciated and made into something useful, especially for themselves.

Personalized Photo Notebooks

A handy notebook is always useful, especially if your sibling is a busy bee, an avid traveler, or just someone who likes to jot down everything. It might seem like a generic gift, but it doesn’t take a lot to make it special by making personalized photo notebooks

You can use your own design, illustration, or a photo of you and your sibling for the cover, or if they have their own business, you can put their company logo on the cover. With online printing services that are available, it won’t take much time and effort to bring your own touch to what would otherwise be a boring generic gift.

You can also check for other photo gifts like coffee mug printing, personalised photo keychains online, and custom playing cards in India.

    Living far away from your sibling doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Raksha Bandhan. You just have to visit Ahmedabad Gift Shop and order your rakhi and gifts for your siblings.
