He may fight with you 24×7, bug you to death, snoop around for your secrets, pull your leg (or hair, should we say), but our brothers hold a very special place in our hearts, one that no one else can ever have. And what better way than Bhai Dooj to celebrate the love that grows stronger with every fight. One of the biggest festivals (after Raksha Bandhan, of course) that celebrates the bond of love between a brother and a sister, Bhai Dooj is a great time to express your love for the guy who will always have your back. So, if you missed out on Raksha Bandhan celebrations, this is the time to make it up to your brother dearest and make him feel special with these wonderful gifts. Don’t miss the smile on his face.
The fashion-conscious brother
If you have a brother who takes more time than you, to decide on an outfit even for a casual outing with pals, this smart grey short kurta will sort out his fashion woes in no time.
The traditionalist brother
This gorgeous green festive kurta-pyjama set is just the thing this kind of guy would love. A perfect pick for traditional occasions, this outfit will easily get him all the attention from the ladies. One more reason for him to thank you!
The prim and proper brother
For the brother who is all about being prim and proper, there couldn’t be a better pick than this gorgeous red silk-blend Nehru jacket. It’s stylish, smart and sophisticated — pretty much everything your brother could ever ask for. What’s great is that he can even pair it with trousers and shirts to make a cool statement.
The late latif brother
He plans to meet up with you at a restaurant and keeps you waiting for hours together? It’s happened to all of us and pretty often too! While you would love to give him a piece of your mind, and probably you have a million times, how about gifting him a clock for his room this Bhai Dooj, so he doesn’t lose track of time the next time he makes a plan with you!
The brother who lives away
Have a brother who lives away? This beautiful handpainted ethnic photo frame makes for a lovely way to express those unsaid feelings for him. This Bhai Dooj, gift him this photo frame with a childhood picture of you two and watch his eyes light up.
The foodie brother
If the kitchen your brother’s favourite haunt at any given point of time in the day, a basket of assorted namkeens could be the only way to tell him how much you love him, this Bhai Dooj. He will definitely thank you for this quick-fix for his midnight snack cravings.
The intellectual brother
If your brother is more of a geek ball, this handmade paper diary is the best gift you could ever give him! A heartfelt message from you on the first page will make this his most prized possession.
The perfume junkie
If your brother’s closet looks like a mini perfume shop, here’s another one for his collection. After all, perfumes are a style statement too and one can never have enough!
The one with a sweet tooth
No matter how hard you two fought the day before, there’s nothing a box of delectable sweets can’t fix. This Bhai Dooj, make up with a box of his favourite sweets and watch his anger melt away.
