"Every time, just ahead of Raksha Bandhan, I literally go crazy searching for that appropriate gift which can bring that million-dollar smile on her face and which could be cherished by her in the time to come. Since my sister loves trekking and loves to explore places, so I have decided to head off with her on an adventurous trip to Manali," he said.

IT professional Shreyas Arya will be taking his sister to Singapore, a trip she has been waiting for.

"I still remember when we used to go out for holidays and enjoy ourselves together with family. So this Raksha Bandhan I have decided to take my sister to her dream destination place so that we can rebuild those lost faint childhood memories," Arya said with a beaming smile.

While travel is something most people love, a relaxing day at the salon to soother ones senses is another perfect gift. Vishu Arora thought just the same and ditched the age-old gifts to get his sister a full-day pampering session.

"This year, after a long brainstorming I have decided to gift my sister a full salon day. I see her so stressed out at work so I thought that if I gift her a completely relaxing day at a good salon, it would be a small token of love and affection. My little sister has always been there as my partner-in-crime in every mischief," said Arora, a student.

So all the brothers out there, put on your thinking caps so that you can put the brightest smile on your sister's face this Raksha Bandhan.
