1. A set of Turbie Twist hair towels to fight frizz as soon as your sister steps out of the shower.

Amazon

The one thing my sisters fight over when we’re all staying at my parents’ house are the Turbie Twists. Believe it or not, these microfiber towels make a huge difference when it comes to drying your hair and eliminating frizz. They’re also amazing if you want to multitask while your hair dries. I will definitely be ordering this four-pack for my siblings so they STOP STEALING MINE.

Promising review: “These are amazing! They look super cute, dry your hair, and keep it from getting damaged. I like that it keeps my hair out of my face long enough for me to finish my routines before addressing my hair.” —Vicki

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $21.99.

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, are 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 Amazon for $6.99.

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

Amazon

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 $29.44 (available in all 50 states).

4. A cozy blanket over 1,000 Amazon reviewers are obsessed with — and your sister will be too.

amazon.com, amazon.com

This blanket is machine-washable, luxurious, and hypoallergenic. What more could you want? It’s perfect for snuggling together while you watch To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before for the hundredth time this winter.

Promising review: “Much softer and fuzzier than I expected. I bought this for my Hyggekrog (my cozy nook) where I curl up with a cup of herbal tea and read. It’s super plush and lux for a throw. Feels like real chinchilla. The underside is a soft fleece that feels like spun air it’s so soft and light. My cats love it too (see photo). Definitely buying another for a gift.” —Andrew Demcak

Get it from Amazon for $29.49+ (available in four sizes and 21 colors).

5. A Tamagotchi that’ll happily transport you and your sibling right back into the ’90s. Just don’t forget to feed it!

Barnes & Noble

Can you believe it’s been TWENTY years since the debut of the Tamagotchi? I can remember when my sisters and I got our first ones and how much fun it was taking care of it. The revival of this classic toy now gives you the chance to share your childhood memories with your siblings again. It lets you feed, play, and take care of a little virtual pet — who wouldn’t want that?

Get it from Barnes & Noble for $19.95.

Everyone can use a new cozy cardigan — your sister included. Make her day by gifting her one of these snuggly suckers for the holidays. Snag one for yourself while you’re at it!

Promising review: “So soft and comfortable!! Fits really big though!! I got an extra large, which is my normal size, but definitely could’ve gone with a large. I would suggest sizing down. I love oversized sweaters though! It’s 100% acrylic so it doesn’t shrink which is nice. It’s also super soft without being scratchy. I love the cable knit design also! It’s washed up really well and I want it in all the other colors now!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–2XL and 12 styles).

7. An AncestryDNA kit, so you guys can finally confirm just how Italian you really are (get the sauce going, Ma!).

Amazon

I invested in one of these kits over two years ago and it’s one of my favorite purchases to-date. And who better to learn about your DNA and ethnicity with than your sisters? My sisters and I loved seeing the percentage breakdown of each nationality once the results came back.

Promising review: “I HIGHLY recommend this!!! Being adopted, I’ve always been curious about my background and AncestryDNA helped me figure it out easily! However, the best feature in my opinion is that they then provide with information about potential family members. Because of this feature, I was finally able to connect with my biological sister after 25 years of dreaming about doing so! That right there means that I will forever say that AncestryDNA is worth every single penny and definitely earns and deserves 5 stars!!!” —K. McDermott

If your sister is someone who is constantly sipping on a PSL or caramel macchiato from Starbucks, she will definitely be into this cup. It holds 16 oz (also known as a grande) and can be made in a variety of colors and customized with her name or any other phrase.

Promising review: “Got this for my sister who I lovingly call Nina Bean. Her cup, ‘Nin’s Beans.’ Cute, huh?! Cup came cutely wrapped so you could give as a gift straight out of the box. Lettering was uniform, straight, and properly centered. Some comments complain about the thinness of the cup, however, this is a standard Starbucks reusable cup, or at least it feels like the exact same one I bought from them. I have zero complaints about this gem and think it’s a great gift!” —Laurie Shearer

Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

9. An ice roller, which is said to help decrease under-eye puffiness, minimize fine lines, and shrink pores — as well as to relieve headaches and sore muscles. Your sister’s skin will thank you.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Ok, ok. Maybe my sister already bought this for me and I’m obsessed with it — which is why I know it’s an awesome gift! It’s my favorite thing to start my pampering with, but I also use it in the morning before I apply any makeup. All you have to do is pop the separate roller piece into your freezer and you’ll be ready to de-puff in no time.

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in seven colors).

10. A basic T-shirt dress in hopes your sister won’t continue to take yours out of your closet and refuse to return it.

amazon.com, amazon.com

The biggest perk about having sisters is sharing clothes — which is why any time you buy your sibling something it’s basically like you’re buying something for yourself too! Win-win!

Promising review: “Fit is great! I have been adding clothes for fall and found this dress while searching Amazon. I loved it so much, I ordered a second in the wine / burgundy color. Can’t wait to wear this with a scarf and boots. I wear a medium in most dresses and ordered a medium in this. If you want a more flowy fit than what mine looks like in the pic, I would size up one size. This is super soft and looks like it’s pretty good quality, especially for the price.” —Amanda Leigh

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in sizes X–XL, 2X–3X and 24 styles).

11. A set of owl planters for the sibling who is constantly boasting about their green thumb (but actually only knows how to keep succulents alive).

amazon.com

These lil’ cuties are made of ceramic and come in a set of six. They’re a fun way to add a touch of whimsy to your sister’s home and are honestly just adorable. She’ll be asking, “HOO got me this amazing present?!”

Promising review: “These little owl planters are super adorable (without being too cutesy) and nice quality. They are small though. The opening in the top is about 1.5 to 1.75 inches. It’s a nice size for small succulents. They also have that oh-so-important drainage hole. I love them and may buy more to use as gifts.” —Mich81

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

12. And an entire pack of succulents to fill those adorable planters with — and also the rest of your sister’s apartment.

Amazon

You might think 10 succulents seems like bit much, but you’re wrong. I gave out succulent plants as my wedding favor and had friends clamoring for more. My very own two sisters took about 10 plants each, proving the point that you can truly never have enough of these tiny living cuties.

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (also available in packs of 4, 6, 12, 16, and 20).

13. A pair of socks that’ll keep your sissy’s toes toasty all year long.

Amazon

Each year, without fail, around the holidays I am gifted a pair of socks — and you’ll never hear me (or anyone else) complaining about it. I truly believe there is not ONE person on this planet who would turn down these snuggly socks. They’re made of wool and will brighten up any cold winter morning.

Promising review: “These are wonderful socks. Soft and warm and not itchy at all like socks with such a high percentage of wool can be. They fit perfectly, hugging your foot instead of slipping around like a sloppy mess. Love the muted colors as well. Thinking about getting more in other colors!” —Debra A. Scott

Get a five-pair pack from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 23 styles).

14. A colorful eyeshadow palette, so your talented makeup artist of a sibling can create countless ~looks~.

Karity

With a colorful variety of deep yellows, oranges, pinks, reds, greens, blues, this rainbow palette is perfect for the sister who wants to really perfect that smokey eye makeup tutorial she’s been working on.

Promising review: “This is a very good quality product. The makeup is smooth, easy to apply, and very pigmented for the price. I highly recommend if you’re starting out with makeup and want to practice and experiment with different colors but perhaps lack the funds for some of the high-end products.

The eyeshadows are highly colorful so a little goes a very long way, and if you use a good primer it will last alllllll day and then some. They cause no skin or eye irritation on me and there is no noticeable odor.” —Angie Pi.

Get it from Karity for $29.

15. An appetizing junk food–themed blanket for the sister you can always count on to go on a fast-food crawl with you.

FrankiePrintCo / Etsy

If your sister won’t stop what she’s doing to grab a slice of pizza or drive through McDonald’s with you, then you need to reevaluate your relationship. Commemorate that special junk food–fueled bond by gifting your sis this handmade woven throw blanket!

Get it from FrankiePrintCo on Etsy for $79+ (available in three sizes).

16. A zodiac tee so the next time someone tries the pickup line “What’s your sign?” your sister can roll her eyes and point at her shirt.

Couthclothing / Etsy

I’ll be straightforward with you — I check my (and my sister’s) horoscope every.single.day. As someone who loves astrology, I am here for this shirt. It has a retro vibe to it that makes it even more appealing. It is made of a super-soft cotton and is sure to make even your stubborn Taurus sister smile.

Get it from Couthclothing on Etsy for $18.90 (available in sizes S–XL and six colors).

Amazon, amazon.com

This camera bundle is a gift that’s great for sisters of all ages! It’s easy to use and comes with a ton of accessories you can test out together — starting with the selfie mirror, obvs. Your sis is sure to also enjoy the colored plastic frames, film stickers, colored lens filters, and cute matching case.

Promising review: “Amazing bundle!! I bought this for myself and I absolutely love it! The case is functional, the front unbuttons in the back so you can keep it in the case and still take a picture which is super cool. And the photo album is so cute. The camera works so smoothly and the quality of the pictures is everything I wanted. I love the vintage aesthetic.” —Cailyn Miller

Get it from Amazon for $103.99+ (available in nine colors).

18. A book about shop cats inhabiting famous locations throughout New York City that your feline-loving sis is sure to enjoy.

Amazon

Does your sister live for her cat? Then she will definitely thank you for gifting her Shop Cats of New York. This book showcases adorable felines and their fabulous residencies all across Manhattan. From yoga studios to famous record stores, your sis will love reading the background stories on these cats and then tracking them down for some snuggles IRL.

Promising review: “Brilliant! Charming! Classic celebration of the heart and kindness of New York! What’s New York without its independent shops? And what’s an independent shop without an independent car presiding? The photography is as charming and spontaneous as the writing. Serving up lovely portraits that are true without being gooey! Love. It.” —Martha Finney

Get it from Amazon for $15.80.

19. A blush and highlighter trio that’ll keep your sister looking cheeky at all times.

Karity

This cute little palette combines two stunning blushes with a glitzy highlighter to help create a jaw-dropping look your sister can show off on her next next out. It comes in a bunch of color combinations, so you might even want to pick up more than one set.

Promising review: “The quality of this blush palette is nothing short of what I expect from Karity — it’s excellent. It’s very pigmented, but if you use a light hand with the darkest color, it gives you such a pretty flush look. The first blush is matte, the second has a little shimmer, and the highlighter is stunning. You can also use these as eyeshadows. I highly recommend you try this if you were even considering.” —Nicole S.

Get it from Karity for $14 (available in four colors).

20. A gold bar bracelet you can personalize with something meaningful, like the coordinates of the street you grew up on, your sister’s name, or a quote you both love.

Amazon

Do you have multiple sisters and want to get something extra special for each of them? Then you need to check out this bracelet. You can easily have it customized to include an inscription on the front or the back of the bracelet. You can also choose from a variety of finishes and fonts, making it extra personal.

Get it from Amazon for $22.75+ (available in three styles).

21. An illustrated print your sister can hang up in her dorm or apartment and remember how much you love her each time she looks at it. Adoooorable!

22. A cinematic light box so she can light up her life (or at least her bedroom) with fun messages.

amazon.com

During a white elephant exchange last year, my friends and I all fought over this exact light box for a solid hour. It comes with 192 letters, numbers, symbols, and emojis, so your sibling can pretty much create any message she can think of! The vintage cinema style of the light box will amp up any aesthetic she has goin’ on.

Promising review: “This cinema light box with letters is the perfect size to fit in my kitchen counter without taking too much space. It’s super easy to slide the letters in every line and it looks very nice when the light are on. It comes with plenty of letters, a Christmas tree, and lots of emojis. I received a lot of compliments recently at my holiday party.” —Fodder

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

Amazon

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 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 $12.99.

25. 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.

Amazon

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 been getting steady increases in our Cable TV bill with no increases in services. So we thought we would cut the cord and this device became the focal point for making that transition. We are very pleased with the performance of this device. It is easy to setup with prompts provided as you power it up. We then added our favorite apps, (also very easy), and have never looked back at the Cable TV being gone. We now save over $100 a month without those charges for Cable TV. If you are thinking of making the leap into cord cutting, this is the way to go.” —Stephen H. Jenkins

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

26. A Drake enamel pin for your sister who continues to beg you to film her doing the “Toosie Slide” for her Tik Tok.

Remember, sisters make the best friends (and sharers of awesome gifts…hopefully).
