The best gift to give your sister is love, but make-up is a close runner-up.
If the tradition of celebrating Rakhi is n years old, then the practice of calling your sister ugly is n+1 years old. Building on that, a girl’s love and affection for makeup are n+2 years old! However, as clueless as the girls are about the new Harley Davidson bike, their brothers are equally unaware of the latest makeup trends.
So, for all the boys - it's time to start some research. With Raksha Bandhan fast approaching, the scamper for Rakhi Gifts for sisters is at its peak. And as far as gifts for women go, you’ll find scarce better gift ideas than makeup products. Here are some unique makeup item ideas to further enhance your sister’s beauty.
1. Mermaid Gift Set:
We all know that out of all the Disney princesses, the girls always had an inherent little bias towards Ariel (for those who are looking for context, Ariel was the Little Mermaid). Cast the sea spell on your sister - and give her true Mermaid feels with this Mermaid Gift Set.
The Mermaid Gift Set consists of Mermaid Make Up Brushes and a 3D Mermaid Tail Mug. The brushes are set of 7 makeup brushes, of different shapes and sizes - encompassing all of your sister’s needs for different occasions. The ceramic mug is artistically crafted in the shape of a mermaid tail handle, with a beautiful mermaid scales design - have your sister drink like a mermaid.
The relationship between you and your sister has evolved like nothing else, so why not present her with something modern? Nail polish is an irremovable part of any beauty queen’s vanity kit.
Make her nail polishing experience much simpler with the unique wearable nail polish holder - which will keep her fingers fastened and her nail polish always handy.
Just 14.5 x 21 cm in size the makeup bag is easy to carry in a small bag. Your sister will be able to carry it on the move, in her purse - allowing her to fix her makeup and look beautiful on the move. The bag will fit all the makeup supplies she needs for a quick touch up.
Every beauty queen worth her salt has an immense amount of makeup products in her armory. So much so, that it can even become a huge mess just to keep track of what all she has, and where all it is. And we all know the age-old law - things will go missing the one time she actually needs them.
But not anymore, with the cosmetic organizer. Have her hang the cloth organizer - with a set of 4 baskets - on the wall, and keep all her belongings in the same place, neat and tidy. Save your family from getting late for the next family function, and yourself from bumping into makeup products all over the house.
Your sister has perfect hair and should be protected at all costs. Get her this hair towel wrap for a natural quick-dry rather than using a hair dryer and spoiling the natural luscious locks in the process.
The towel is as soft as your bond and the colours are soothing to the eyes. It will help her dry her hair naturally while she does her makeup for the day.
You already treat your sister as your cleaning lady - why not give her a gift that will help her clean her brushes, too? For your sister, keeping her makeup brushes swanky clean is always a priority, but it can be a harrowing task.
Not anymore, though - the brush cleaning mat will make it an effortless task. With suction cups to cling on to the sink, it's really easy to attach - and even easier to use, as all she would have to do is rub the bristles of the brushes against the mat's surface.
A perfect gift for the drama queen who can't be seen without her beautiful jewellery pieces. She has so many that it's easy to lose track of them. Extend a helping hand by gifting her this storage box this year.
8. Spa Gel Socks:
Is your sister always complaining that you never pamper her? And, as usual, you are clueless as to how to go about it? Well, just get her these spa gel socks and watch the magic. All she has to do it moisturise her feet and slip on these for an at-home spa experience!
The socks contain a gel section, made from a mix of lavender essential oil, plant gel, olive oil, grape seed oil and jojoba oil and contains Vitamin E - which will keep her feet as soft and comfortable as ever.
As far as shower sponges go, there will seldom be any as creative as this Ice Cream Sponge. As she indulges in her me time while taking a bath, have her take her luxurious bath up a notch - with ice creams.
With a stick handle, it's extremely handy to use. Its soft body makes it good for the skin - making it the all-round package. The more the time she spends on herself, the more trouble-free your life becomes.
No matter how much you dislike this, your sister does walk around the house like a princess - wearing an imaginary crown. But this Raksha Bandhan, crown her royalty - quite literally, with the Queen Jewellery Holder. Her beautiful jewellery deserves a holder just as beautiful, to keep them safe at home.
Don't miss your chance to present her with something fancy - your rakhi gifts should be unique, and there’s nothing a woman will love more than something that’ll only enhance her elegant beauty. Remember to take all the credit, the next time she looks pretty!
