New Delhi, Aug 12 (IANS) The gift of good health and wellness, gizmos and gadgets, apparels and accessories or good old cash - what is it that you’re planning to gift your sister this Raksha Bandhan?

Several discounts and offers are available at malls, local markets as well as in the online space for you to choose from for the festival that falls Saturday. Here are a few options:

Wardrobe indulgences

Diamond may be a girl’s best friend, but she can feel pampered with any apparel and accessory too. So be it clothes from Indian brands like Wills Lifestyle, W and Biba, or from international brands like Zara, FCUK, Forever 21 and Woodland, which are on sale, there are lots of options from where you could pick your gift without burning a hole in your pocket. If you plan to surprise your sister by gifting her a necklace or earrings, Ferns & Petals (FnP) is ready to deliver earrings, danglers, gold rings, bangles and bracelets, at your doorstep.

Health is wealth

If you have a sister who watches over her waistline, present her a gift of good health with a box of almonds or pistachios. A handful of these would keep her weight in check. If she is one of those who can’t control her cravings, how about gifting her the membership of a nearby gym where she can rejuvenate herself and shed those extra kilos? Maybe you could join the gym with her, and add to your bonding.

Doll her up

For all the boys with sisters who love to spend time on grooming themselves, what better gift than self-grooming products? Panasonic has a wide range of products like epilators, eyebrow shaper, pore cleanser, hair dryers, hair irons, curlers and steamers to choose from. The price range starts from Rs.1,000. Ferns n Petals has on offer cosmetic hampers, including Choco facial spa, Golden spa and other luxury spa hampers. Revlon has also introduced its beauty hamper for Rs.2,295. Several spas have pocket-friendly deals, which will leave your sister relaxed.

That girl with gizmos

Is your sister one of those who spends more time on her laptop, iPod or Playstation rather than in front of the mirror? How about gifting her some of the latest gadgets in the market? Gift her a Kinect for Xbox 360, a latest offering from Microsoft through which you battle, dance, and compete through gesture gaming. Gifting a smartphone is also a smart idea! These could be steeply priced, but will surely put a smile on the face of your gadget-freak sister.

Good-old cash or gift voucher

Let her choose her own gift - just hand over the cash! Whether it’s Rs.100 or Rs.1,000, brothers don’t mind loosening their pockets a little on the special day. Even gift vouchers from any department store, or an apparel shop or a spa would be a wise idea.
