Best home and kitchen gifts for your sister
Your sister's go-to marg (or smoothie or mocktail) recipe will get an instant upgrade with these cocktail cups, which have a special cooling gel. She can keep them in the freezer so they'll be perfectly chilled for her next at-home happy hour.
The sister who is alway first to finish that new movie or series that everyone's talking about will love finding this retro-style popcorn set under the tree. It comes with metal tins of popcorn kernels, oil and seasonings (movie theater-style and sweet caramel), plus a reusable popcorn tub.
Brighten up your sister's space with this pretty pink candle. It's made of beeswax and coconut wax and has notes of rose, honey, vanilla and fir.
For the sister who likes the idea of a plant pet in theory but doesn't have much of a green thumb, consider this four-foot fake tree. Reviewers love the affordable price and how realistic it looks.
Best fashion gifts for your sister
A cozy new beanie is a practical gift for the winter, but it doesn't have to be a boring one. Your sister will love being able to switch up her look with the three interchangeable poms that come with this one.
Your sister won't mind bundling up for winter activities when it means wearing this stylish sherpa pullover, which is on sale for less than $40 until Dec. 12. It comes in seven colors and patterns as well as a range of sizes from XS to 3X.
Who doesn't love starting off the new year with some fresh basics? Pick a pattern and snag this functional Vera Bradley tote for your sister while it's on sale for less than $50.
With a chic plaid pattern and stylish color combos, this scarf is bound to become your sister's new go-to winter accessory. "You will just not want to take it off," one reviewer says.
A new pair of shades is a great gift for the sister whose sunglasses collection is never complete — or who is constantly asking to borrow your favorite pair. This elevated aviator shape from Prive Revaux is universally flattering, and the lenses are polarized and scratch resistant. Plus, you can snag them for 50% off right now.
No fall wardrobe is complete without a trending shirt-jacket hybrid, also known as a shacket. Your sister will want to live in this fleece and sherpa-lined version — which comes in six colors — all season long.
You’d be surprised how many people forget about the basics when it comes to their wardrobes. If your sister could use some updated staples, consider gifting her a lineup of perfect layering turtlenecks in a few of her favorite colors.
Slippers aren’t just for lounging around the house anymore: These fluffy slides have rubber soles, so they're perfect for running errands throughout the day. If your sister is a comfort-first kind of girl, they'll be her favorite gift of the season.
Style meets function this holiday season in the form of this cute crossbody from Save the Girls. With a touchscreen back and protective technology for RFID-enabled credit cards, it's perfect for your always-on-the-go sister.
You can never go wrong with jewelry. Try stepping outside the box with a chic two-tone anklet, complete with adornments that are as — dare we say — charming as your sister.
Pro-tip: Invest in a brightly colored wallet so it’s always easy to find. If your sister is constantly digging for hers at the bottom of her dark purse, then this is the gift for her.
Chances are your sister has been wearing the same leggings for a few years now. Give her a luxe upgrade with this velour style that's perfect for fall and winter.
As we said before, jewelry is a no brainer when it comes to gifting, and there’s nothing more universally classic than some fresh hoops. Your sis will love the subtle texture on this sterling silver pair.
Best bath and beauty gifts for your sister
Instead of a spa day certificate, give your sister the gift of a spa at home with this affordable shower head from Waterpik. It has a handheld design and five spray settings for the ultimate spa-like experience. Reviewers also note that it's easy to install.
If your sister doesn't have time for a fussy, complex beauty routine, consider gifting her some trusty essentials designed for everyday use. This simple set includes a balancing foundation, lipstick and a blush and highlighter duo — perfect for even the most low-maintenance of sisters.
Got a sister who's a beauty guru? Impress her with this serum gloss duo, which contains ingredients like shea butter, hyaluronic acid and tri-oil complex. The combo is formulated to leave lips hydrated and shiny.
The little things really do matter most — and beauty tools are no exception. If your sister's makeup sponges have seen better days, she'll appreciate this set, which includes two fresh ones plus a sponge and brush cleanser.
With the holiday season comes a whole slew of events to attend. By the time the new year rolls around, your sister will be glad you got her a new tube of her signature shade of lipstick.
A lighted mirror makes last minute touch ups a cinch. This mini foldable one has an LED ring light, suction-cup base and an 8x magnification setting.
If your sister is a notoriously light sleeper, a good eye mask could be the solution. Help her get her beauty rest with this 100% mulberry silk option, which has an interior panel designed to block out distracting light.
Cleansing and exfoliating has never been easier with this body brush from Blushly. Complete with four interchangeable brush heads, this is the ultimate gift for a sister who loves to indulge in a bath or a long shower.
This bestselling moisturizing foundation is sure to become a fixture on your sister’s vanity once she tries it for herself. It's formulated with SPF 15, so your sister will never leave the house without some sun protection.
If your sister's vanity is in constant disarray, help her get organized for the new year with this storage case. The transparent material will make finding her favorite products easier than ever — not to mention the fact that this case has more than 180 five-star reviews.
With an at-home oasis comes the need for spa-quality towels, like these Turbie Twists, which are tailored to fit the head. These fast-drying 100% cotton wraps mean your sister can skip bulky towels or the hair dryer.
Best practical gifts for your sister

Nothing is more inconvenient than a misplaced phone charger. Relieve the possibility of that stress for your sister with this wireless (and very stylish) charge pad and phone stand — the perfect fixtures for her desk or bedside table.
A sturdy and stylish case isn't the only essential phone accessory: Give your phone-obsessed sister the ability to go hands-free with an adhesive stand. The sleek design is reason enough to add this two-pack from iRing to your cart — not to mention the fact that it's more than 50% off right now.
