Even when your sister takes your new Staud dress without asking, even when she roasts you in the family group chat, you still love her to pieces. Let's face it, you've had more showdowns than the Kardashian sisters, but you've always made up and she's forever your ride or die/plus one for any parties where you feel awkward going alone. Plus, she's the only one who truly understands how scary your parents were while you two were growing up. She's there for you 24/7 and truly, you can't imagine life without her. To honor that sibling bond, make the gifts you give this season feel special. Whether you're looking for something personalized, budget-friendly, trendy, or just plain cozy for your sister to unwrap and squeal with joy over, we've got you covered. Check out the 53 holiday, birthday, or "just because" gift ideas ahead.
For those spending Christmas apart this year, send your love and thoughts with this little spruce tree. The package comes with everything she'll need, from lights to the "snow," to set up a little holiday cheer in her studio apartment.
This phthalate and cruelty-free candle is made of a vegan blend of natural soy and coconut wax with a eco-friendly wooden wick. Once lit, the candle gives off notes of blood orange, plum honey, and spices such as cinnamon and nutmeg. When you've used up the candle, the vessel can be repurposed.
You like to organize all your to-do lists on your iPhone while she prefers to write them down. You know then that she'll love this planner. It has 184 double-sided planner pages and 40 double-sided list pages for all her scheduling needs.
It's impossible not to fall in love with these colorful roller skates. It'll make a great gift for sisters of all ages and help her get her "steps" in for the day.
Surprise your sister with this DNA kit, so she can unpack the mystery, once and for all, of her favorite furry pal's breed. You'll also be the best auntie ever.
This female form mug is crafted from speckled ceramic and is great for those who don't want that cookie cutter kitchenware look. To make this gift feel a little more special, include her favorite blend of coffee or tea to sweeten the deal.
You both love to snack, so this fun ornament set is sure to be a hit. Every time she looks at one of these trinkets, she'll think back to all those memories you two share.
Make her feel like she's at a spa every day with this microfiber robe that won't ever shrink or pull. It's machine washable, too, which will make her already busy life so much easier.
You can always catch her watching Harry Potter reruns for the hundredth time. It makes complete sense then to gift her this Harry Potter advent sock calendar. She can rock the socks while watching half-blood prince again!
Who else recalls watching Ina Garten on the weekends cooking up a storm with their sibling? (Nope, just me?) Either way, if she is a fan of Ina Garten, she'll want Ina's newest cookbook, which features recipes such as outrageous garlic bread and pomegranate gimlets.
You were always slightly envious of her perfect penmanship growing up, so you know she will love this introduction to calligraphy set. For under $20, she can write you the prettiest notes and letters.
Gift her flowers that have a charitable mission. The Bouqs Co. collaborated with Bloom & Plume founder Maurice Harris to design this bouquet blend of purple alstroemeria and limonium with burgundy scabiosa for United with Flowers Collection. One hundred percent of the net profits will go towards Campaign Zero, supporting its mission to combat police brutality through data-informed policy solutions.

This mango wood wine holder will add some warm tones to her kitchen countertops. When gifting, throw in a bottle of her favorite wine too.
For the sister who binged Tiger King in one sitting, gift her this Joe Exotic puzzle piece. It's hilarious, and the 1,000 pieces will keep her busy for at least the whole weekend.
Treat her scalp to this hydration and restore kit from Briogeo. It works on all hair types and texture to address concerns such as dryness, split ends, and breakage. The masks are travel-size friendly too if you're going away for the holidays.
A pretty locket that actually opens and can contain a mini photograph of her favorite sibling a.k.a. you, maybe? The front has a cool rainbow moonstone while the chain itself is a rope design.
Your sis swears by her Apple Watch, so give her this band that's made of leather and has a graphic paisley pattern. That, coupled with the dark navy blue, will draw attention to her wrist in an elegant fashion.
Instead of stuffing her face mask back into her tote bag or jacket pocket, she can keep the mask clean and sanitary in this essentials pouch. The pouch can be attached to everything from her tote bag to keychain. In addition, with every purchase, Mark Cross will donate 10 percent of the sales to the Know Your Rights Camp COVID-19 Relief Fund.
This Snoopy-inspired slipper is so cute and heats up to ensure her feet will be warm 24/7. Get yourself a pair so you guys can match. Once your mom sees you both, she might want a pair too.
Your mom always told you guys to wear more layers growing up and while you guys might have rolled your eyes, she always turned out to be right. Follow mom's advice and gift yourself/your sister this layer-able turtleneck sweater for winter.
She easily spends more than $30 on coffee per week, which isn't great for her wallet. Good thing you can get her a cold brew machine (that's also a tea infuser!) that cost less than her trips to the coffee shop.
For the sister who loves all things fashion and lives in the Big Apple, gift her this beautiful coffee table book that comes in four different colors. The book features imagery from Proenza Schouler's spring 2021 collection and a love letter to New York. If she likes what she sees in book, she can pre-order the garments too.
Gift your snowboard-avid sibling a fresh board for her trips to the mountain. Though pricey, it's worth it to see the look on her face when she unwraps the present. (If you're really on a budget though, consider splitting the cost with other family members!)
She's always singing and dancing around. Support her hobby with this microphone that features a built-in phone holder, so she can belt out her favorite tunes. The wireless mic can even record her performance.
As somebody who's spent way too long searching for scarves that are soft, chic, and well-made this season, I'm telling you this alpaca scarf is something to covet. This scarf is a vibrantly colorful option that your sister will be able to enjoy with any cold-weather ensemble.
If she needs more optimism and clarity in her life, gift her the yellow set. If she needs more harmony and simplicity, gift her the neutral bracelets. Warm colors may be energizing while cooler colors are more calming. Each bracelet set is meant to harness those colors' energies and pass them on to the wearer.
These vase bookends double as art pieces, which means they're great for your sis if she lives in a tiny city apartment where shelf space is a premium. They're unique, colorful, and add a pop of artsiness to any home.
Inspired by the classic Parisian Charlotte cake, the "Charlotte" collection will satisfy her hunger for new accessories. This ring, in particular, is our favorite because of the simple ridge design. It can be worn alone or stacked with other gold baubles.
For the sister with sensitive skin, gift her this gentle, but powerful, pore-cleaning clay mask from cult K-beauty brand Innisfree. It doesn't burn or dry out your skin, instead leaving your skin feeling smooth, fresh, and clean.
