Rakhi Gifting from Abroad: Building on Ties that Bind

Posted by Pooja Lal on at

One of the biggest problems faced by Indians abroad during Raksha bandhan is finding an Indian gift shop. This takes up a lot of time and effort. Yes there may some shops in Jackson Heights or Broadway in New York or the supermarkets in Leeds, England, or even Sydney, Australia, but do they stock a variety of Rakhis? Or even traditional Indian gifting items during Rakhi? Will they send it across in time? Very few locations, very less shops and even very less time often leave you helpless. Or even after reaching the shops, you have to go through the tiresome routine of packing it and sending it through friends if they are going back during this occasion. Or worry about sending it via post and hoping it reaches on time. The entire effect of sending something blissful back home to eagerly awaiting brothers and sisters is totally spoilt through these efforts. Just sending money too, is quite a mood dampener, and may be not so erudite, especially if they are elder to you.

Here’s a sure shot, quick and easy remedy to these quandaries while sitting in the comforts of home say in even Timbuktu, Mali or somewhere in the Canary Islands or Edinburg in Scotland. Delight Gifts! Say you want to send some Rakhis and chocolates, all you have to do is browse through, select and send to the address of your choice back home in India. And Voila! Rest assured that it’s sent and delivered timely in a luxury gift box –minus all that stress and strain.  Choose from our wide array of specialized experience gifting from gourmet, adventure, sports, adventure or spa and salon verticals. There’s plenty of choice.

Thinking of sending Rakhi gifts for your brother? If he is still young, send him some for cartoon study classes in Delhi – he will surely enjoy it because ours is a premier ecommerce gifting site, and scrimping is not in our lexicon. If he is a bit older, send him gourmet dining experiences like a lavish four course meal at 70 Brauhaus – some German meals are simply irresistible! There are plenty of Taj hotels in which to gift a delicious dinner too.  After all, that’s what grand dinners are all about! As an aperitif, perhaps you could add wine or scotch tasting experiences for him and his friends? There are plenty of high adrenalin adventure experiences too, just in case you want to send something different.

As for Rakhi Gifts for your sister, the first choice is of course from the spa and salon sections. The shopping experience is bound to find appreciation while adding to her wardrobe. Plus, there are gym classes if she is figure conscious and self defence classes- ideal if she works or has to travel through a tough neighborhood. Now, if she got recently married there are lots and lots of beautiful romantic holiday getaways from the enchanting Neemrana Hotels, surely they can take the weekend off!  Add to that, some weekend getaways at either five star resorts or rare destinations like tea tasting in some of the fabled tea gardens or jungle adventures in the national parks; and you can fill in their itinerary any way you like!

Now that we have brought you the art of Rakhi gifting to India, into just a few mouse clicks, its time for you to act and build on those ties that bind you to your brothers and sisters in your homeland!
