Pick one up for your sister from their stores at DLF Emporio or at The Chanakya Mall in New Delhi.
Confluence by Swarovski
Girls love bling and some of India’s finest designers have incorporated sparkling Swarovski to their exquisite jewellery designs to create the Confluence by Swarovski collection. Amrapali, Eina Ahluwalia, Gaurav Gupta, Isharya, JJ Valaya, Manish Arora, Outhouse, Pernia Qureshi, Rohit Bal, Shivan & Narresh, Suhani Pittie, Suneet Varma and Tarun Tahiliani are among the designers who have collaborated with Swarovski to create Confluence. The resulting collection features eclectic pieces that will perfectly compliment your sister’s ethnic attires. You can find Confluence at stores like Ogaan, AZA, Ensemble, Amethyst and Evoluzione.
Parfums by Forest Essentials
It’s hard to go wrong when you’re picking Rakshabandhan gifts from Forest Essentials. All their products smell great and are packaged beautifully. Their Parfums particularly are eye-catching, not just for their ethereal aromas but also for the efforts of the brand to source the scents from their authentic regions. The Parfum Intense Desi Gulab is made from roses sourced from Kannauj, which interestingly sits on the ancient trade route once used for transporting rare plants and perfumes. The Parfum Intense Jasmine is created from flowers sourced from Madurai while Parfum Intense Nargis is crafted from blooms gathered from the valley of Kashmir. Presented in elegant crystal bottles, these Parfums can be purchased from any of their stores across India.
Nike Joyride NSW Optik
If you have a sporty sister, then ditch the bag and jewellery ideas and buy her instead the Nike Joyride NSW Optik. The shoe launches on 15th August, so your sis will be among the first to own one. From what we hear this particular model is designed specifically for women and has a sleek upper with no lace and is crafted from premium materials. The heel and collar are in leather and molded skin is on the upper, creating a fun mix of modern detailing with traditional craft. The new Nike Joyride technology powers the shoe and we absolutely love the colourful beads in the sole. Besides looking like a lot of fun, the thousands of TPE beads actually form Nike’s proprietary cushioning system – Joyride – that offers a personalised underfoot experience. The shoe provides amazing impact absorption and is apt for seasoned as well as rookie runners. So either head to a Nike store on Rakshabandhan or go online with your sister and order her pair directly from Nike.
Finally, if your sister is a fan of Game of Thrones, then maybe you can buy her come GOT Memorobilia as Rakshabandhan gifts? Doesn’t hurt to check them out! Good luck with your hunt!
