Amidst the love-hate relationship growing up seems to be easy when you have a sibling who’s always got your back. Even if they fight with you for the whole day, no one from outside is allowed to question your bond. That’s how strong the bond between you and your brother has been for years now. However, due to work commitments and for making a career, people must have started living in different places. And it seems like all the daily life secrets, everyday happenings, and situational issues have piled up in your gut.
Diwali is not just the festival of lights but is also a festival of celebration of such bonds. So, post the Pandemic, if this is when you have plans to go back home for Diwali and meet your brother almost after two years, then it’s evident that you will want to gift him something. If that’s so, then here are some things that you need to observe before you buy him a gift:
Read the male mindset
Women buy things that are kept in the house and are put to use months later. Or if you are a strategic shopper, you must have plans of buying things after analyzing prices in different places. Men do not do either of the two. Instead, they use modern technologies and do their research at home before they step out to buy something. And when they buy a particular product, they do it only to start using it immediately. So, when you buy your brother a Diwali gift, read him well to understand what he wants.
Follow the patterns
Every man is different from the other no matter how similar they might seem. Even in the limited options of outfits that they wear, everyone has a different style statement. So, if for this Diwali you have thought of gifting your brother some outfits, then make sure you see the common brands that he puts on, the types of t-shirts, shirts, trousers, and denim he chooses, the colors that he commonly wears or the textures that are his favorite. Though it’s a bit risky to buy clothes for men without their consent if you are willing to take the risk, make sure, you have done proper research before that.
Men prefer buying multipurpose things like if they are buying a dress, they make sure that they can put it to use for more than once. So if you are taking your brother out for shopping then he can do it for himself but apart from that if you are taking the chance of doing it for him then make sure you buy things that they can put to use on multiple occasions. Because if you give them something that they will be able to use just once then that will be a waste for them and they will rather be annoyed at you for purchasing something so costly. So, if your brother has a habit of buying something that can be put to multiple uses then buy him something like that.
