Great Gift Ideas for Your Sister
Whether you are a brother or sister yourself, buying a gift for
a sister of any age can be challenging yet rewarding. Remember,
not only is your sister a built-in friend, she is special in ways
that no other friend can be because you share a family. At any age,
you can recognize that special bond.
Buying for a Younger Sister
If your sister is a young child, consider an age-appropriate book.
This shows that you appreciate her abilities and recognize that
she's maturing. Perhaps a fun toy is more in order, something she
could use alone as well as with a trusted friend. Walkie talkie
wrist watches might be the perfect gift, and she may even give one
of them to you!
Journaling and Diaries
Girls ten and up often take to journaling and diaries, but in
days gone by have often lost the keys or had the locks picked by
other nosy children. These days you can buy her a beautiful voice-passworded
journal that only she can access-at least until she gets laryngitis.
Cell Phone Gear
Young teenage girls more often than not have their own cell phones.
A fun gift for the phone-owner might be cell phone covers and skins,
as well as unique ringtones. For music lovers, consider a handbag
shaped like a guitar, or that has a print reflecting her sport or
activity. If she is musically talented, you could get her accessories
for her instrument, like guitar strings and picks, or sheet music.
MP3 Players and Gear
For older teens, the ever-popular MP3 player with downloaded music
(legal, please) always makes a considerate gift. Also consider getting
her photograph put on a glamor magazine, complete with photo shoot-they
will make her look like a star. The athletic girls might like wrist-held
water bottles, which help serve as both a weight-trainer and hydrator.
For sisters in college and beyond, try memory books (with lots
of photos of your life together) or keepsake boxes with trinkets
from your past that will remind her of your special relationship.
Both will tell your sister that you treasure her place in your life,
and look forward to collecting photos and memories for the next
Spending Time Together
One thought that you will want to keep in mind when thinking about
a gift for your sister is a simple one ... Spend some time together.
When all is said and done, when you head on further down the road
in life, the gifts that you will remember most of all, the thoughts
that you will cherish, will be those involving time that you actually
spent together. When you go about the process of finding a gift
to give your sister, focus on things which will allow you to spend
For example, depending on the age of your sister, you might think
about some sort of day trip together or even a weekend journey to
some place special and fun. In any case, as you go about creating
such a marvelous gift, you need to know that in the end you will
be giving something to your sister that you will both cherish forever
