You’ll find the perfect gift ideas for a sister here – the most important thing is give her something that suits her personality and lifestyle. This list of gifts will help you figure out what your sister likes, so you can feel good about what you’re giving her.
One of the best gifts my sister ever gave me was a bathrobe, similar to the Egyptian Cotton Bathrobe Terry Shawl Robe. She gave it to me more than 15 years ago, and it’s still one of my favorite things.
The best gift I ever gave my sister was a Micro Fleece Plush Blanket. Her kids actually stole it from her because they loved it so much. It’s one of those gift ideas for sister that the whole family loves
Another top gift choice for a sister is a watch. I recently bought a watch as a birthday gift; it was for a man, but this Vintage brass watch pendant totally bewitched me. It’s both elegant and practical.
Gift Ideas for Your Sister
Coffees and teas. Every year, my mother-in-law asks me for gift ideas. Every year, I say Tim Horton’s coffee and specialty teas! It’s more important this year because we’re doing Christmas on a budget because of my husband’s layoff. We can afford to buy coffee, but it sure would be nice to be given some. Coffees and teas are practical gifts that everyone can use – even if they don’t drink coffee or tea. Why? Because they serve coffee and tea to guests who visit.
The gift of inspiration and hope. If your sister is a writer or blogger, read 14 Best Gifts for Writers. My favorite gift idea for a sister in that article is the Dream, Faith, Hope, Believe, and Simplify Wooden Sign Collection. Your sister can hang them all over the house, and be inspired to keep writing.
Dragon speaking and writing software is another fantastic gift idea for your sister, because carpal tunnel syndrome is a serious risk for writers. One best gifts for sisters who write is Dragon Naturally Speaking – it converts your sister’s spoken words to text.
A magazine subscription. What magazine does your sister read? Many women love reading Oprah Magazine. National Geographic is the number one bestselling magazine subscription on Amazon – if your sister loves travel and reading about exotic places, she might love that gift subscription.
Classy hoop earrings. You can never go wrong with jewelry, because even the most tomboy-ish sisters like to get dressed up once in awhile! One of the best gift ideas for a sister is a pair of earrings, such as the Sterling Silver Diamond Hoop Earrings. In fact, I’m giving my sister-in-law a necklace pendant for Christmas this year.
Is your sister over 40? Read 40th Birthday Gifts for Women.
Digital reader. If she loves to read, surprise her with Amazon’s Kindle Fire in Full Color. Or, gift her with a less expensive Kindle, and load it up with her favorite books – you can give her a dozen at a time. This is a lovely gift idea for a sister who loves to read – and who hasn’t tried a digital reader yet.
House cleaning services. Whether your sister lives alone or has a family, a few sessions of free house cleaning services would be amazing. It often feels weird at first to have someone come in and clean your house, but it is so NICE to have a clean house without having to lift a finger. Be warned, though: this is one of those gift ideas for sister that may turn into a disaster. Some women feel worse than weird at the thought of being cleaned up after: they hate it. The last thing you want is for your sister’s gift to backfire, so tread with caution.
Bow wow! If your sister has a dog, the Bake-A-Bone The Original Dog Treat Maker is a creative gift idea. Buying dog treats gets expensive if you’re into organic and natural biscuits, and it’s not healthy if you buy the cheap stuff! Making your own dog biscuits is a great way to save money and keep your dog health, which makes the treat maker is a great gift idea for sister.
You could also give your sister the Three Dog Bakery Cookbook: Over 50 Recipes for All-Natural Treats for Your Dog – with or without the dog treat maker.
Gift candy from your sister’s childhood. I don’t know how old your sister is, but a cool gift idea for sisters is a retro candy gift box. If she’s in her 50s or 60s, you could give her a gift box of candy from that era. Another fun idea is the Candy Crate 1940’s Retro Candy Gift Box — your sister doesn’t have to be elderly to enjoy a blast from the past! It’d be fun to see and taste the different types of candy people ate 70 years ago.
