In this post, we share ideas to throw the perfect surprise for your siblings on Raksha Bandhan.
Start the day with a video call
In this era of smart technology with smartphones and the internet, distance will not separate you from your loved ones. If your sibling is in Australia, then you should plan to surprise him right on time when the rakhi gifts are being delivered. He will appreciate the efforts you have made to send rakhi to Australia. Even if you cannot be there to tie the rakhi on his wrist, the video call will make a lasting impression. If your parents are also in another city or country, you can connect with them via video conference.
Spruce up the decor
Celebrations are glamorous! The backgrounds should be lively and comfortable. It is also important to celebrate traditional celebrations like Raksha Bandhan by wearing traditional clothes and making decorations.
