Top Ten Raksha Bandhan Gift Ideas For Kids

What Is Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan is an Indian festival that celebrates the bond between brothers and sisters. The name “Raksha Bandhan” means “bond of protection.” On this day, sisters tie a protective thread called a “Rakhi” around their brothers’ wrists, symbolizing their love and the brother’s promise to protect and care for his sister. In turn, brothers shower their sisters with gifts. Raksha Bandhan is an auspicious festival that is intended not only to commemorate and strengthen the sibling relationship but also to showcase the importance of family.
