Christmas Gift Ideas for Sister

Getting a gift for your sister is a great way to remind her how important she is to you. Even though you may know your sister better than anyone else, sometimes it can be hard to narrow down your gift options. To help you pick out the perfect present, here are the fifteen best ideas for things to get your sister for Christmas.

1. Shoes

Functional and stylish footwear is a classic, memorable Christmas gift for your sister. Help her dress up for a fancy date with elegant heels, or give her some sleek athletic shoes to wear to the gym. Comfortable sneakers are perfect for running errands and for casual activities with friends, while sturdy riding boots or wool-lined moccasins will keep her feet warm and dry all winter. No matter what her hobbies are, you can find a pair of shoes fit for the perfect Christmas gift.

2. Handbags

With all the glam holiday parties to hit, a handbag is a great gift for your sister. Whether it’s a practical clutch for carrying all her makeup essentials or a designer purse to complement her Christmas dress, a new accessory is a gift that your sister will love. Choose the perfect size and style for her, whether it’s a hobo bag for her art supplies or a large tote for beach gear. Neutral colors like black and brown go with whatever she wears, while glitzy details and beaded accents are showstoppers for a girls’ night out.

3. Fashion Accessories

This Christmas, spice up your sister’s wardrobe with some new accessories. Prepare her for the rest of winter with warm gloves, a scarf, and a matching cap, or help her look forward to warmer weather with a pair of sunglasses and a brimmed hat. If the accessories are small enough, use them as stocking stuffers and save the wrapping paper for your sister’s other Christmas gifts.

4. Skin Care

Let your sister cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize to her heart’s content with a generous selection of luxury skin care products. Facial masks and peels can renew and revitalize her complexion, and there are a variety of lotions and moisturizers that can help to heal and refresh her skin in dry winter months. From facial cleansers to anti-aging products, give your sister a Christmas gift to preserve her natural glow.

5. Makeup

Nothing goes with a good outfit better than good makeup, so replenish your sister’s makeup supply with a variety of new lipsticks, shadows, and powders. If she likes to experiment with daring looks, gift her with a makeup set loaded with plenty to keep her looking merry and bright. If she prefers to stick to her signature style, then restock her favorite cosmetics for Christmas. Small items like lip gloss and compacts are perfect for keeping in a purse or car, while large brushes and palettes will give any makeup artist the perfect at-home studio.

6. Luxury Bedding

Transform your sister’s bed into a snuggly winter refuge with fluffy new bedding made from the finest materials. She’ll love retreating from the cold with comfortable microfiber sheets or getting cozy under a thick down comforter or beautiful duvet. Choose soft, heavy fabrics she can sink into, such as a woolly Sherpa or deep flannel, and Egyptian cotton to upgrade her sleep experience year-round. While dark colors are suitable for a moody winter palette, attractive patterns will complement her room. Either will make the ideal Christmas present for your sister.

7. Spa Bath Products

Bath time at home can feel like a day at the spa with the right bath products. Spoil your sister this Christmas with some aromatic bath bombs she can use for a relaxing soak, or gift her a bath set of body scrubs and cleansers that will leave her feeling completely refreshed. A bathtub caddy tray is perfect for resting her tablet and a glass of wine when she wants to feel fully pampered. For post-bath comfort, a set of soft towels and a plush bathrobe will wrap up her spa experience like a Christmas miracle.

8. Travel Accessories

Encourage your sister’s globe-trotting lifestyle with some gifts for her travels. Get her a set of durable luggage she can easily pack up and get through the airport, or choose a roomy backpack and some compartment organizers if she prefers to travel light. A portable charger, neck pillow, and a tablet or digital camera are other small gifts for your sister that will make her travel experiences more convenient as she’s traveling for the holidays.

9. Bluetooth Speaker

For the sister who likes her jingle bells loud, a powerful Bluetooth speaker is the perfect Christmas gift. A portable speaker is a great way to let her take her music everywhere she goes. Choose a waterproof speaker with a rugged construction if your sister lives for outdoor activities, or pick something more compact she can keep in a purse or backpack. A soundbar with additional speakers is perfect as a stay-at-home sound system she can control from her phone, while smart speakers are a completely hands-free option that can be controlled with just her voice.

10. Perfume

A good perfume is an important part of getting ready every day, so choose a scent your sister will love. Whether she prefers subtle blends meant to linger in the background or standout scents designed to be noticed, her perfume present should complement her style. Try getting her several small bottles she can sample or a refill of her current favorite perfume. Fruity and floral holiday scents are sweet gestures to remind her of your family’s Christmas mornings.

11. Yoga Mat

The holidays are a popular time to try to get fit. A yoga mat is a practical gift to encourage your sister to exercise by making it more comfortable for her. Many mats come with a carrying strap to make it easy for her to take to Pilates classes or bring her meditation outside when the weather warms up. Look for a moisture-resistant surface that can prevent buildup of odor and bacteria when she breaks a sweat.

12. Heated Blanket

Whether your sister prefers to be smothered with heavy-duty fabrics or just needs a casual throw to cuddle with, a heated electric blanket is a cheaper alternative to luxury bedding that will help her recharge. Digital controls let her adjust and hold the level of warmth she needs to be comfortable, so she won’t wake up cold or shiver through the night. A faux fur or fleece companion is all she needs to sleep in through snowy winter days. Polyester is a lighter solution for sitting through Christmas movies without getting too toasty, especially if the blanket is shared.

13. Board Game

Adults have game nights, too! Revive that old sibling rivalry on Christmas morning with a combo chest full of classics like chess and checkers that you played when you were kids. Grown-up card games with insightful questions or hilarious answers are gifts your sister can enjoy at dinner parties with her friends.

14. Barware

Gift your sister a set of glasses etched with fun designs, perfect for serving up fruity cocktails on girls’ night. For drinks with more of a kick, personalize a decanter with your sister’s initials. She’ll love the upscaled appearance of her liqueurs. To further embellish her refined taste, treat her to a metal shaker to chill and enhance the flavor of her spirits. Round out a set of mixing gadgets with a bar tool kit that she can show off on a cart or in a dining room hutch. An ice bucket and serving tray are classy additions to a hostess’s repertoire get her holiday party started.

15. Throw Pillow

During a season of togetherness, comfort is the ideal quality for a gift. A cute, fashionable throw pillow is a small accent piece to enliven your sister’s space with warmth and contentment. A huggable textile adds back support while she’s lounging on a sofa, bed, or chair, or makes an easy prop for her laptop. Velvet is a soulful on-trend material, while a creamy knit is a timeless classic to pop in anywhere around her home. Shades of pale blue or blush are new neutrals that add feminine mystique without overwhelming her palette.
