Sometimes a sister may feel that her brother is too cold, uncaring, and emotionally detached, not caring one bit about her.
But this tag of ‘not being emotionally expressive’ changes completely, on the day of Raksha Bandhan. Witness how he drops his “tough guy” attitude on this auspicious day and his heart melts as his sweet sister ties the thread of Rakhi on his wrist.
What better way to express your brotherly affection than by gifting her some wonderful return gifts alongside a beautiful message straight from the heart to make her feel special!
Here are some suggestions to plan her a surprise –
Returning the joy through cards and a heartfelt message
Decorated and intricately, designed cards are guaranteed to spread the joy of this occasion to all. But what is more special is the fact that now you can write your own special Rakhi message on the card. Imagine the joy on her face, as the card is opened and your message is read! A fitting message to accompanying a card would be –
There are times when I loved you from the bottom of my heart, and there are times when you got on my nerves by doing silly things. But no matter what, you are and will always be my kid sister. Happy Raksha Bandhan, sister! Thanks for always being there unconditionally

Box of her favorite sweets and a message
Imagine a box loaded with the most delicious and mouthwatering sweets which she loves. It could be a kaju barfis or a box of laddoos. But no matter what it is, Rakhi is incomplete without these sweets. Send her an equally memorable message alongwith these sweets.
You do not need to hear from my end that you are special. Whether it was taking a walk at the hour of midnight, or just lounging on the sofa and engaging in an interesting discussion, I never felt alone. Thank you for being there for me, didi. Happy Raksha Bandhan.
