Rakhi is right around the corner and I am forever filled with a bittersweet feeling at this time of the year. Bitter because I have two elder sisters. Which meant growing up already knowing that you are, by nature, excluded from all the Rakhi related joys. Sweet, because when my sister got married and we started tying Rakhi to my brother-in-law, he would try and find something ‘nice’ but eventually would settle for cash. And he would explain dearly and logically as to why he couldn’t choose a gift. It’s still an inside joke as to how non-innovative and lazy he is becoming with every passing year. I swear last year it was money through wallet app!
Case in point, don’t be that sibling.
This Raksha Bandhan, I have partnered with Spaces India to give you a beautiful gifting collection that’s worthy of your love, and 5 very easy, useful and effective Rakhi gifting ideas that not only look stunning but also make you look super innovative! Not to mention it is also well within your budget.
Adult up brothers! Vouchers and earrings are not going to cut it in the sisterhood.
Let me introduce you to The Anti-Microbial Bamboo-Charcoal range by SPACES
A part of SPACES Autumn-Winter’ 19, The Bamboo Charcoal range infuses innovation, technology and style in a seamless collection that has unique antimicrobial properties which offers you healthy living, every day.
It’s Antimicrobial- The bamboo keeps the sheets naturally antimicrobial, which means it prevents bacterial growth and keeps them hygienic.
Keeps you Fresh: These unique Bamboo Charcoal bedsheets absorb moisture, keeps bad odour away, and makes you feel fresh.
And they’re all clad in grey, taupe, olive and charcoal
Very, very androgynous! Loved the fact that almost all the bedding in this range uses monochromes and muted colours and they are oh-so-me. Effortlessly gorgeous and absolutely dreamy with all that heavy mood going on- here are some of my favourites from the range and I’m totally dreaming a little dream right now thinking about the many styles that this would work fabulously with.
Also, just for a little fun, I have broken down my favorites into sections basis who I think would enjoy it the most. But that’s of course my understanding of people.
A moody, pine forest print for the one with wanderlust
Dark pine, against an elegant grey makes this bedding almost dreamy- making it the perfect rakhi gift for the ones who love nature
A classic checkered for the minimalist
You can’t go wrong with a checkered fabric in olive, taupe and blue. Especially if it has all the possibility to pendulum from summer to winter.
A bit of abstract for the artsy one
All you need to give your bedroom a lift is this bedding in black and grey! It’s so gorgeous, it’ll cheer up even the simplest of rooms
The one that enjoys a good bath and body product
I don’t know many who don’t cherish a good bath product and the bath towels from the Spaces Bamboo-Charcoal collection are classic. In white, grey and navy, these towels also come in an adorable reusable bag that well…ahem…saves you wrapping if you are not that kind.
The one that loves sustainable living
Now this is everything from the collection. Each piece from the Spaces Bamboo-Charcoal range comes in a reusable felt bag. No plastic, no nasties. A great Rakhi gifting idea for the ones who love mother Earth above all
A cute Rakhi gifting idea
We loved how the classic towels looked in wicker and we think this Raksha Bandhan without wrapping your gifts in plastic wrapping wrapper, opt for a basket and stack the towels together. They look amazing, the basket comes very handy (I would know) and you leave no carbon footprint which is as joyous as the occasion itself.
Happy Raksha Bandhan to all
