The 47 Best Gifts for Sisters of 2022

Williams Sonoma

Having a sister is like having a built-in best friend for life. And when it comes to buying a gift for your sister, you want to make sure whatever you pick is just as special as she is. Depending on your closeness, you probably already have a good idea of what she likes and doesn’t like. However, it may be tempting to trend toward your likes instead of hers, says Jodi RR Smith, an etiquette consultant and president and owner of Mannersmith

“Be sure to keep her interests as the focus of your shopping,” says Smith. Pick gifts that match her personality, interests, hobbies, and don’t overlook experiences. “A spa day together, an overnight to the big city for dinner and a show, or taking a class together are all ways to celebrate your sister while creating memories,” says Smith.

We did the research and found the very best gifts for sisters, whether she’s a foodie, traveler, wine aficionado, or all of the above.

Questions You Might Ask

How much money should you spend on a gift for a sister?

There’s no specific amount you need to spend on your sister, as it depends on your budget. Smith recommends thinking about the occasion (for example, a birthday, graduation, or wedding) and adjusting your amount accordingly. “For a regular birthday, you might spend two times what you would spend for a night on the town. But if it is a ‘big’ birthday, then you might want to spend three times your typical night out budget, or the amount you might spend if you were splurging on something for yourself,” says Smith. For a wedding, spending four times the amount of a celebratory night out might be appropriate. But regardless of the occasion, Smith recommends, “If you are able, opt to be more generous than not.” 

What should you put in a gift basket for a sister?

Gift baskets are a great way for you to pull together a collection of things your sister loves. Again, there’s no set rules for what to include in a gift basket, as it depends on your sister. Smith advises to think about what your sister likes to do in her spare time. For example, if she’s crafty, then you might want to include supplies, books, or special tools. If she loves to lounge on the beach, then a nice towel, sun lotions, and a beach read would work. If she’s a bookworm, opt for some best-selling books, a mug, some coffee or teas, and a chocolate sampler. The options are endless as long as you put some thought into it. “The better you know your sister, the easier it will be to fill a basket for her,” says Smith.
