    1. A set of cactus socks your sis will plan-t to wear every single day.


    Promising review: "These are the best. I love cacti and they're just soo adorable. They fit perfectly and stretch wonderfully. They're the perfect length so they don't slide down in your shoes and they're actually very comfortable. The colors are vibrant and wonder they have held up wonderfully in the wash. Definitely going to order more patterns as these are now my favorite socks." —Kayla T

    Get a set of five from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 11 styles).

    2. A Queen Elizabeth II Funko Pop for the sister who's convinced she was separated at birth from Will and Harry.


    Is your sibling constantly giving you updates like "Kate Middleton wore a fabulous blue dress today" or "Did you see that new photo of Prince Louis?!" If so, she is sure to gush over this mini figure of the Queen herself. I have one on my desk and my coworkers can't stop cooing over the accompanying corgi.

    Get it from Amazon for $10.

    3. A goddess necklace as a trendy reminder to your sister that she's a badass warrior.


    Could your sister use a bit of a pick-me-up? Let this goddess coin necklace serve as a reminder just how freakin' awesome she is. Whether she'd feel more connected to someone like Medusa or Joan of Arc, there's definitely a leading lady she'd enjoy wearing around her neck. The best part? 20% of sale profits are also donated to National Charity Partners, including Cancer Care and the National Alliance for Mental Illness.

    Get it from Awe for $170+ (available in silver or gold and in seven styles).

    4. A Fujifilm Instax Mini Instant Camera that's perfect if your sis is always asking the fam to pose for photos, but then forgets to upload them to Facebook.


    This camera is an adorable gift for your photo-loving sister! She can sing Ariana's "click, click, click, and post" while she shoots some fun selfies of you guys.

    Promising review: "I love this camera! It is absolutely wonderful. It came with batteries and was very easy to get working. Instructions were clear and very easy to follow. I'd highly suggest this camera to anyone." —katkolwinsha

    Get it from Walmart for $49+ (available in five colors).

    5. A mini journal, so your sister will always have someone to pour out her feelings to even if you're unavailable.


    And by "unavailable" I mean asleep, because my sister stays up WAY later than I do.

    Promising review: "I had initially bought the full size. And loved it. Then saw this, their mini version, and thought it was a great idea. Fair warning to everyone — it does contain the same quotes as the large size. So nothing new inside. Just a smaller size. However, I like being able to journal at a moment's notice and having these quotes to carry around with me. A unique item that would make a great gift. For me? I gifted it to myself. Haha." —AstroGirlBunny

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in two sizes and eight styles).

    6. A set of velvet scrunchies that your sis can use to easily upgrade her hairstyle.


    Is your sister forever running late? After gifting her these pretty velvet scrunchies, she can simply throw her hair up in a pony or a (somewhat) neat bun, and head for the door!

    Promising review: "The scrunchies are very soft, very strong and stretchy, and surprisingly smell pretty good. They can make an outfit more interesting even by just wearing them on your wrist. 11/10 would recommend." —Torence H.

    Get it from LoveLightandLegacy on Etsy for $18 (available in seven styles).

    8. A scratch-off movie bucket list your sister who spends all her time marathoning classic films will surely love.


    Featuring 100 must-watch movies, you and your sister can make a pact to watch 'em all together! If movies aren't her thing, you can also surprise her with one focused on music or places to visit.

    Promising review: "If you are anything like my fiancée and I, you have a heck of a time trying to find a movie to watch together. We are both broke college students who are unable to afford big fancy dates, so, what do we do? We order take-out and watch movies. This is a great product that helps us make up our minds. In fact, the $15 that I spent on this product has probably saved a few hours of my time that would’ve been spent trying to find a movie." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.51+ (available in three styles).

    9. A Homesick candle to remind her of memories you made together in your childhood home state.


    Whether your sister is heading off to college for the first time or moving to another country, this candle will serve as a happy reminder of growing up together at home.

    Promising review: "I’ve spent my entire life in Ohio and if you asked me what it smelled like, I wouldn’t have been able to put it into words. I recently moved to NYC and thought I’d give this a shot. As soon as I lit the thing it felt like I was back there. Crazy." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in all 50 states).

    10. A pair of short cowboy boots for your sister who would rather be dancing around to Kacey Musgraves songs than anything else.

    Tecovas / Via, Tecovas

    These boots are a country girl's dream come true — they're made of super soft leather and feature flawless details. It's kind of unbelievable just how comfortable these shoes are. You should probs buy yourself a pair as well so you're not tempted to steal hers.

    If you're looking for a similar pair that won't break the bank, check out these from Forever 21 for $38 (available in sizes 5.5–10 and in three styles).

    11. An Amazon Fire Stick so even if you and your sis are arguing over what to binge-watch, you can have endless options at your fingertips.


    I think nearly every member of my family now has an Amazon Fire TV Stick. My sisters were fighting over one for a while until one caved and finally bought her own — that's how much we love this product. Movie marathons will never be the same after buying this little gadget, you and your siblings can truly watch anything your hearts desire.

    Promising review: "We have cut the cord and are streaming all content on the Fire Stick. We have so much to watch! We have access to Amazon Prime videos, Amazon channels that we love, Acorn TV, Masterpiece, and Brit Box, Netflix and Hulu with live TV. This change over has been very easy and we are saving $80/month by dropping cable and using the streaming content apps." —walesgirl

    Free People

    This set would make for the perfect gift! I love that they can be used to jazz up your entire ear's worth of piercings and of course that they come with seed paper. From love and good vibes to travel and creativity, each set is designed to inspire a certain goal. Obsessed.

    These are the most fabulous slippers I've ever seen. They are exactly what my sisters would want to wear while lounging around the house on the weekends — and I guarantee yours will enjoy, too!

    Promising review: "Beautiful iridescent silver color and cozy faux-fur lining. The bottom of the slipper is soft so I don't wear these in the basement when doing laundry, but otherwise I wear all over the house. These are warm and cozy — I'd definitely recommend this product!" —Kimberly62613

    This dazzling phone is exactly what your sister needs — she just doesn't know it yet!

    Promising review: "Love this pearly case! The case is very slim and it grips onto the phone and doesn’t add bulk. The material is nice, thought it would have been a hard material but it’s similar to a silicone case. The material appears that it’s durable and will be hard to scratch or discolor." —Amanda Witkowski

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99 (made for iPhone X/XS).

    18. A book about sisterhood written by Jenna Bush Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush that is sure to warm your sister's heart.


    The Bush twins' book Sisters First: Stories from Our Wild and Wonderful Life is a wonderful gift to give your bookworm sister — regardless of her political views. The ladies share their stories about growing up in a political dynasty and in the public eye. It's worth the read and I'm sure your sis will agree.

    Promising review: "This book is SO funny and so hopeful and so full of love! What a fun, wild, and wonderful read. They are so honest and real. They share these incredible stories about their family and their relationships. I was really craving a book that would make me feel good and this book is that!! I love these girls and I can't believe what beautiful writers they are." —Bookworm

    Get it from Amazon for $15.78.

    19. An encouraging water bottle, so your sis can stop complaining about not drinking enough water and actually just DO IT.


    I am the oldest of three girls, which often finds me channeling a more motherly role with my sisters. For example, my youngest sister is constantly complaining she's dizzy but NEVER DRINKS WATER. I'm gifting her this water bottle to encourage her to stay hydrated, damnit.

    Promising review: "Despite there being millions of water bottles out there it has taken me ages to find one that fits all my requirements. This one not only fits them — it exceeded them ! It’s both functional and pretty ! I love the handy handle and straw makes drinking easy. I take it to work with me everyday and it’s always nice to look at !" —Lauren K.

    Get it from for $30.

    For the hundredth time — check in your coat pocket, girl! This lil' gadget will help your sis find her keys with just the click of a button. Ah, the beauty of technology.

    Promising review: "Two kinds of people in the world — those that put their keys in exactly the same place when they come home and the human tornados that lose them the moment they pull them out of the keyhole. I am the latter. After too many missed commuter trains, meltdowns and futile searches, I got a Tile. This is my replacement and I grabbed it because the first one changed my morning life in a pretty profound way. No more expletive-laced rants, no searching through the trash, just a quick consult with my phone and brrrrring! Crisis averted. Get it." —K. Kasbian

    24. A graphic tank emblazoned with the words "girl gang or die," essential for anyone looking to shower their sister squad with gifts.

    25. A set of personalized coasters featuring your sister's favorite snapshots (or maybe the most embarrassing ones you can find...hehe).


    Promising review: "I love these coasters! I was concerned that it would be difficult to get pictures in but had no problems and used the sample photos as a cutting guide. I've placed snapshots from my travels in the slots and love the potential they have to be conversation starters and how the coasters match and personalize my home decor." —L. C. Lee

This product is infused with organic coconut oil and Bulgarian roses. It smells AMAZING and leaves my body feeling like velvet — definitely a luxurious add-on for any shower experience. My sister often comes over for at-home spa nights, so she'll love having this one as a go-to in her own house.

    Get it from Walmart for $7.46.

    29. A pair of Jack Rogers sandals, because nothing says "I love you" more than shoes with hearts on 'em.

    Jack Rogers

    Um, obsessed. Keep this purchase in your back pocket for a time you're not-so-nice to you sibling. I'm not saying gifts fix all, but these heart-y sandals may help.

    Get them from Jack Rogers for $148 (available in sizes 5 and 6–11).

    30. A trio of lip balms you and your siblings can share during the harsh winter months.

    Promising review: "I purchased these bath bombs because I was looking for an alternative to Lush. I'm a school teacher, I need relaxation without the price tag of around $7 a bomb! I was very excited to see that these bombs are handmade in the United States. They also are made of ingredients that are familiar to me. I ordered with Prime so they arrived in two days, as promised. The packaging is very simple. The bombs were well protected during their journey. None of mine felt broken. I could smell them through the box! Very strong yet awesome scents. They have a small sticker with the names of each bomb on the individual wrappers. I tried 'Fun on the Beach' first. My entire bathroom smells amazing! My water is a hot pink/purple color. The bomb took about two minutes to dissolve entirely. I am so excited to try them all! —Kelsea McKinzie

    37. A set of nine lotus-inspired earrings for the look of a cuff but the feel of a simple stud., Amazon

    Promising review: "This set was an incredible value for a beautiful selection of earrings. It’s cool how you put the post in your ear, then a dangle, then the earring back — it’s such an elegant look. The assortment is lovely, including some earrings that are fancier and some more casual. Excellent collection! Highly recommend! A+." —J. McKeon

    Urban Outfitters

    Heating pads are a must-have all year, but when they really shine is during extra-cold winter days. This one is the cutest one I've ever seen and can be used as both a heat pack and a cold one. You can find me using this lil' friend to warm up my toes during the next blizzard — and probably my sister as well.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a gift for one of my very best friends who is obsessed with avocados... I just thought it was funny. It arrived and it smells AMAZING, it’s incredibly soft, and now I don’t want to give it away." —littlestwolf

    Get it from Sticky Baby for $30.

    41. A delicate initial necklace for your sis who prefers simple jewelry she can wear every day.


    ...or so she can scream-sing the Taylor Swift lyrics "I want to wear his initial on a chain 'round my neck not because he owns me but 'cause he really knows me." Either way! Fab purchase.

    Promising review: "I was in search of a small disc pendant with an initial — I just got married and am fully embracing my new last name. For the price and quality, I am FLOORED by Pavoi. I am a jewelry photographer/retoucher and I have to admit I RARELY see quality this good on the most expensive pieces from top brands." —Alea Z

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95 (available in 26 styles).

    42. A Tinker Bell makeup bag to add some pixie dust to your sister's beauty routine.

    44. A lip balm in a fancy tin, so your sister's lips will never feel chapped or dry again.


    My sisters and I swear by these little tins! They taste as good as they smell — so remind her not to accidentally take a bite ;)

    Promising review: "I will be getting this 3-pack again once I run out of this one. I love these lip balms!!! Each flavor is great and these tins last a long time. After six months of several-times-daily use, I still am not even close to needing to replace these tins. The rose flavor in the rose and mint versions is rich and luscious, and the strawberry flavor is not too over-the-top fake tasting. Wonderful products. I use these balms to fill my lips in with lip liner for subtle color and I also use them to remove heavy-duty lip stains--just rub some balm on the lip stain and then wipe off. I can't recommend these highly enough." —bheckel

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $15.48.

    48. A compact mirror inspired by Anna and Elsa that you'll love so much you'll want to buy an extra to gift to yourself.


    One look at this dazzling compact will surely thaw any ~frozen~ heart.

    Promising review: "This compact is just beautiful. The middle has almost like a diamond cut to give off a little shine. The back of each compact has an inscription. It has a pretty substantial weight, but I know that means it's a good-quality compact. If they ever restock these and you're thinking about it, get one. I've never been so excited to buy a compact mirror in my life!" —crystalgp
