There are plenty of iconic sister duos: Kate and Pippa Middleton, Beyonce and Solange Knowles, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and Venus and Serena Williams, just to name a few. Having a sister doesn’t just mean you have a sibling; it means you have a friend for life.
You can celebrate your relationship with your sister by sending her a gift for National Sisters Day, which falls on Aug. 4 this year. Here are some options you can give her to show you love:
- Bouquet of Flowers
One of the best presents you can give your sister on National Sisters Day is a gorgeous bouquet of flowers. You can choose from a variety of Teleflora’s summer flowers, which can brighten up your sister’s home. Or you can select a bouquet that matches her home’s color scheme. There are plenty of arrangements available on our site that can show your sister just how much you appreciate her.
- Bottle of Wine
If your sister loves to indulge in a glass of vino, you might decide to get her a bottle of wine to show your gratitude for her on National Sisters Day. Any nice bottle of pinot or cabernet is sure to make her happy, but if you want to go above and beyond, you can give her a quirky bottle of wine.
Aside from picking out her favorite type of wine, you can praise or tease your sister by giving her a bottle that accurately describes her behavior and your relationship growing up and in the present. Remember, wine gets better with age, so bulk-ordering just means you’ll end up with better quality wine in the future.
- Memorable Scrapbook
Sometimes, a card doesn’t give you enough room to express exactly how you feel. Look through the photos you have taken with your sister over the years and organize them into a scrapbook. Be sure to caption each picture so you forever remember all of the moments you have shared. For an added bonus, write a letter to your sister and place it at the end of the book. It isn’t every day that you get to share innermost thoughts with your family members, but National Sisters Day seems like the perfect occasion to do so.
- Matching Sister Necklaces
Hey, who doesn’t love a gift that involves giving to yourself too? There are plenty of jewelers and Etsy shops that sell cute pieces for individuals and pairs. You don’t have to go for the classic Best Friends necklaces you might have gotten for her when you were younger. Instead, you can buy two of a nice, simple sterling silver charm necklace. Whenever she wears it, she’ll think of your close bond.
- Lunch on You
An intangible gift you can give to your sister this National Sisters Day is a nice day together. If she lives nearby, arrange a day to take her out to lunch. Not only will it show your sister that you genuinely appreciate your relationship, it will also give you time to catch up, something that might otherwise be tough considering your busy schedules.
