The constant banter, unforgivable teasing, the ‘I’m Mom’s Favourite’ battles, all point out to just one human - your sibling. The brother-sister bond is the perfect epitome of sweet and sour, and definitely more sweet than sour! Let’s not forget the multitude of times you’ve lied for each other to your parents and looked out for the other one, without them even knowing.
While it might not be a conventional setting for your celebrations this year, you can still make your Rakhi Soirées (Zoom) memorable for your partner in crime. As we inch closer to the Rakhi this year, shopping for a gift might be on your to-do list. But why settle for a conventional choice when you can get your hands on a statement creation for your favourite sibling instead? Picking out a unique gift for your sister can be a daunting task, so the Tilfi team has curated the perfect edit of sarees and ensembles that will make the choice easier.

Let her know how important she is by gifting her these intricately crafted sarees, which will always remind her of you.
2. The Contemporary Cousin

3. The Night Owl
If you have a sister whose day starts at 1 pm and ends at 4 am, she will surely adore this extension of her favourite hours of the day. Gift her a handcrafted Banarasi Saree in shades of blues, greys and blacks with specks of zari and motifs that embody the night.
