Aries: You should choose a rakhi which is red, orange or yellow in colour. An Aries is generally a sport lover, so the best gift for him will be sport equipment.

Taurus: Opt for blue or silver coloured rakhi's. While a Taurus man is as stubborn as a bull, he is also warm and open; hence the perfect gift for him will include a gourmet gift basket of delicious chocolates, plush pillows or cashmere blankets.

Gemini: Choose a rakhi which is green in colour. Since a Gemini is highly intelligent and talkative person, therefore, gift him something that would compliment his intelligence, such as a book or a journal or a unique picture frame.

Cancer: Buy a rakhi which is made of silk threads or pearls, because they are soft from inside. Similarly, they love something that will have a personal meaning, therefore any handmade thing, or something related to home will be a perfect gift for them.
