Maybe she’s the big one; maybe she’s the little one. Maybe she’s your only one, or maybe she’s one of many. Whatever her place is in the family, your sister probably has a special place in your heart.
So when it comes time for her birthday, a holiday, or a housewarming, you’ve got to give her a gift that shows her just how much she means to you.
Looking for a gift for your sister that she’ll be as excited to get as you’ll be to give? Here are 7 awesome gifts for your sister, no matter the occasion.
Choosing artwork for someone else to hang on their wall is nearly impossible – unless it’s an image you already know that they love. And that’s why we love the idea of giving a custom-made gift of a favorite photo printed on canvas.
Choose a photo from when the two of you were young. Choose a picture of a favorite vacation spot or a beach where you played together as children. Choose a beloved photo of your parents or of the entire family.
All you have to do is upload the image, choose the size you want, and your photo will be printed on a durable canvas that she can hang on the wall as art. You can pick a small size that she can prop up on her desk at work or a massive one that’s six feet wide.
The options are endless, and the sentimental image will make it a gift she’ll treasure always.
Jo Malone Perfume
Jo Malone makes some of THE best scents on earth. They’re fruity and fragrant. They’re feminine. And they’re never overpowering.
Even Kate Middleton is a fan. Rumor has it that she had Orange Blossom scented candles burning in Westminster Abbey when she married Prince William. If your sister isn’t a perfume person or isn’t one who’s open to trying new scents, a Jo Malone candle is the perfect alternative.
Our favorite scents are Orange Blossom, Lime Basil & Mandarin, and Nectarine Blossom & Honey. They’re sweet and citrusy yet subtle, making them perfect for spritzing on the skin or making her home smell amazing.
Macaron Bath Bombs
Colorful and fragrant, these macaron bath bombs from Aroma Bee are perfect for any sister of any age. With eight in the set, these bath fizzies are packaged in a pretty pink box that opens to reveal sweet cookie-inspired treats.
They’re made from organic ingredients, including shea butter, so they’re foaming, fizzy and moisturizing all at once. Just fill up the tub, toss one in, and get ready to relax with scents like rose, lavender, and mint. They’re like a sweet treat without the calorie intake – there’s no way she won’t love these!
Wine Glass Tumblers
If she loves to relax at the end of the day with a glass of wine, she’s sure to love these wine glass tumblers from Anthropologie.
Trimmed with gold around the rim, these wine glasses come in a set of four. Each one is textured and designed to refract the light, creating a soft and serene prismatic effect.
The variety of colors in the glass and the stemless design gives them a chic, modern look. Whether she’s into pinot grigio, loves her cab or prefers to sip rosé all day, with these wine tumblers, she’ll be able to get tipsy in style.
They’re a beautiful addition to any kitchen and table setting, regardless of her style of décor. Want to make this gift even better? Give her a bottle of wine as well!
A Designer Wallet
We don’t know any woman on earth who doesn’t love a designer handbag, but picking one out for someone else can be tricky. It’s such a personal choice! And, depending on what designers she likes, it could be really expensive …
Rather than give her a handbag, give her a wallet or a card case from her favorite designer and she can carry it inside any purse she already has. Whether she’s into YSL, Balenciaga or Givenchy, just about every top designer makes wallets and small leather goods to coordinate with their bags.
Sephora or Ulta Gift Card
We’re not huge fans of giving gift cards (though we do love to get them). But we make an exception on one occasion: when it means that we’re giving the gift of beauty.
If you know her favorite brands or know what colors she wears, by all means, give her an assortment of her preferred products. But if you’re not exactly sure what she’s wearing at the moment or what she’s running low on, a beauty gift card will never go to waste.
A Money Tree
More symbolic than anything else, a money tree is a perfect gift for the sister who has everything. Also referred to as the “good luck tree,” this natural plant is a sign of good fortune and good luck, even if it doesn’t grow hundred dollar bills.
And while sending flowers is sure to brighten her day regardless of the occasion, a money tree will last a whole lot longer. With the proper care and conditions, a money tree can live for years, unlike flowers that will inevitably die in a week or two. Plus, the twisted woven trunks give it a really cool look!
What Are the Best Gifts to Give Your Sister?
The key to giving a great gift is to buy with the recipient in mind, but there’s also something to be said for giving a gift that you yourself would love to get.
So the next time you’re looking for a great gift for your sister, skip the traditional picture frames, bath sets, and kitchen accessories. And remember this: the best gifts are the ones that you almost want to keep them for yourself!
