Anyone who has a sister knows they have a built-in best friend for life.
…granted, that best friend might be really annoying at times, borrow your clothes, and cause all kinds of drama now and then, but let’s face it—life would be a lot less vibrant without them.
When it comes to shopping for your sibling, it’s important to put some authentic thought and effort into gift-giving. She’ll know if you just pick up something at the gas station on your way to her place, and will never let you hear the end of it.
Don’t worry: we’ve got you covered. Check out some of these ideas and lavish your sis with the sweetness she deserves.
Is your sister a veritable rockstar? Then celebrate her awesomeness with jewellery that sings volumes about how special she is.
This necklace is a true work of art and features a row of semi-precious gemstones that reflect individual facets of her personality. Rose quartz represents love and kindness, pink tourmaline is for joy, pink opal is for hope and achievement, and black quartz is for positivity. It’s also really badass. It’s finished with a tiny golden star charm that glitters as brightly as she does.
Rocks, and a star.
See what they did there?? (Of course you did.)
We may not always be able to express how we feel about our sisters when we’re face to face. That may be due to distance—like living on opposite sides of the country—or because expressing heartfelt emotion can be difficult.
This plaque is pretty much perfect for reminding her how you feel.
Whenever she’s having a bad day, or missing you, or going through a rough time, she can look at this hanging on her wall and remember just how strong, and brave, and loved she is.
Perfect for a woman who appreciates sweet gestures and pretty things, this brightly colored travel mug can fill your sister’s world with flowers and sunshine, no matter where she goes – she can bring it with her.
Made of double-walled ceramic, it looks quite like silver, and it’s perfect for either hot or cold drinks, and is fully microwave- and dishwasher-safe. Whether she’s into smoothies or lattes, she can take them on all kinds of adventures. With its bright hues and loving sentiment, you can be sure that each sip will remind her that you think she’s the grooviest chick ever.
Butterflies are delicate, ethereal creatures that represent growth, change, and magic. If your sister adores these beauties, surprise her with this gorgeous suncatcher. Made with real wildflowers carefully pressed between layers of glass (and art in itself), it’s meant to be hung in a sunny window where its dangling crystals will refract light around the room.
Each handmade piece is a unique little miracle—just like your sweet sis.
If your sister loves a good cup of tea, look no further. This gorgeous ceramic ensemble is perfect for brewing a single cup just for her. There’s just enough room in the mini teapot for her favourite blend to brew, and the generous cup is the ideal size to wrap her hands around to warm them up.
It even features a sweet little hang tag that reads: “There is no friend like a sister”. Just in case you have trouble putting your own feelings for her into words.
Uncommon Goods is renowned for unique, quirky gifts like this one. You and your sister share a number of things that you’ll never be able to bond over with anyone else. Childhood memories, inside jokes, hilarious catchphrases, reassurances… all those little things that you two shared as you grew up are etched into your memories forever.
And now they’re etched into a mug.
Pair this with the favorite hot drink mix the two of you cherished during late-night bonding sessions and you have a gift she’ll cherish forever.
Our siblings are usually our first real friends, whether we want them to be or not. We may get along with them really well, or we may have the kind of rapport that revolves around playful insults and practical jokes. If the latter rings true for you and your sis, she’ll certainly appreciate this throw pillow.
Not only is it cute and comfortable, it reminds her that she’s stuck with you no matter what.
This gift is guaranteed to evoke a big smile, whether your sister is 9 or 90.
Of course, this is not the best pillow to sleep on, but for house decor, you won’t find a more suitable gift!
Most women love to luxuriate in the bath, and that love usually starts at a young age. Do you remember yelling at your sister to get out of the tub so you could use the bathroom?

Any book lover knows that you never, ever turn down page corners: that’s what bookmarks are for. A bookmark like this one doesn’t just help to keep your sister’s place as she reads—it also celebrates all the special memories the two of you have shared.
If sister dearest loves books as much as she loves you, this little present is sure to be carried with her forever and bring her hours of joy.
(Here’s a tip: Buy her a book on her wishlist and tuck this bookmark in before giving it to her to double the awesomeness.)
We don’t always see our own beauty, but those we love are the most gorgeous beings in our eyes, aren’t they? With this beautiful compact mirror, your sister will remember just how stunning she is every time she glances at herself to check her hair or makeup. No flaws, no personal criticism: just the reminder of the fact that she’s absolutely beautiful she is in her sibling’s eyes.
That in itself is a gift, isn’t it?
If you can’t be present to wish your dear sister “good morning” in person, this might be the next best thing.
A lovely morning greeting is engraved into a high-quality stainless steel spoon that she can use to stir her morning coffee, or savor her favorite breakfast. And hey, if you ever make her angry, she can stab the spoon into some hot chili or something instead of yelling at you about it.
Sometimes, the simplest expression is the way to go. This T-shirt’s sentiment leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination: your splendid sibling will know exactly how you feel about her, because “BEST SISTER EVER” really doesn’t leave much room for misinterpretation, does it? No. No, it doesn’t.

Siblings may not always get along, but there’s a special bond one has with a sister. Even if you have several sisters, chances are you have a unique rapport with each of them: one might be your partner in crime, another could be a trusted confidant.
