These Gifts for Sisters Will Make Up for All Those Times You Borrowed Her Favorite Jeans Without Asking
Sometimes, it's the people you love most and know best that are the hardest to shop for—and that includes your dear sister. When it comes to gift ideas for your built-in best friend, think about her hobbies, her house, and the things she'd never buy for herself. Does she love spending time in the kitchen trying out new recipes? She’d probably appreciate a new Dutch oven. If she's busy ferrying kids to and fro, she likely hasn’t splurged on a little luxury for herself like great monogrammed bath towels in quite a while. If your sister is especially tricky to shop for (you know the type), you can always take the strategic route of buying something you love. That way, if she doesn't like it, you can just "borrow" it for yourself. (She's already used to you stealing things out of her closet throughout your teen years anyway.) This season, we’ve taken the mystery out of shopping for your sister. Here, we've rounded up 30 great Christmas gifts for sisters.
