Whether your sister was one of your best friends or the two of you fought like cat and dog when growing up, nothing and no one can take her place. Christmas, one of the quintessential family celebrations, is the perfect time to acknowledge your bond and to spoil your sister with a luxurious gift.
If you’re struggling to find something put under the tree or in a stocking for her, don’t worry – we’ve come up with a few ideas for fantastic Christmas gifts for sisters.
Cocktails & Pétanque
Cocktail aficionados, as indeed there are such people, are in for a treat in London. French-styled bar, Baranis not only serves up some of the most exotic drinks we’ve seen in the capital, but it also has its own indoor pétanque court. After indulging in herb-infused cocktails such as the “Lemon and Thyme Margarita”, your dearest sister will get to expose her competitive streak with a fun game of pétanque. May the best sibling win!
Harrods Shopping Spree
If shopping is your sister’s raison d’être, but would rather keep the experience closer to home, then the UK’s best-known department store might be what’s in order. Even if you’d like to accompany her but are not much of a fan of retail therapy yourself, a 60-minute massage might do much to change your mind.
Give your sister the gift of an accessory that is stylish and functional, and she’ll remember her special sibling whenever she wears it. Be inspired by one of the hottest trends to emerge this year – the all-black watch. For one that’s truly striking, opt for Versace Women’s Palazzo Empire, which has a leather strap, an enamelled Greek design and a 3D Medusa portrait.
What’s Christmas without candles? If you know that your sister loves to fill her home with luxurious fragrances, make a scented candle of the highest quality your gift to her. We recommend perusing Diptyque’s collection. The black tea, cumin, coriander, and pepper-scented Thé candle is one of our favourites. Some of the others we love are the Figuier, Baies, and Mimosa candles.
Bottle Of Perfume
Another fragrantly indulgent Christmas gift for sisters would be a bottle of perfume. Consider a popular option such as Marc Jacobs’ Daisy EDT, or a timeless classic such as Chanel No. 5. Alternatively, if your sister has a signature scent, give her a bottle of that or, if any have been produced, one of its flanker fragrances.
Create Her Own Fragrance
Put a different spin on the fragrance idea by giving your sister the chance to create a perfume of her very own. She’s bound to treasure not only her creation, but also her memories of the time she spends at royal perfumers Floris in Mayfair, London.
A wine tasting masterclass might be the perfect gift for a sister who appreciates the fruit of the vine. She’ll gain new perspectives, be exposed to different varietals and vintages, and have a great time while doing so. South Africa produces some fine reds, and Bouchard Finlayson is accountable for a good number of those. On this South African wine tasting flight at Bloomsbury’s beautiful Montague on the Gardens Hotel, the very finest Bouchard Finlayson wines are paired with traditional South African appetisers.
It’s generally thought that Milan is the centre of the fashion world, and with the designers Armani, Dolce and Gabbana, and Versace among the local residents, it’s a bit difficult to argue. Milan is also the home to the flagship stores of world-renowned brands. These glorious emporiums are just waiting to be browsed by the discerning fashionista.
Luxury Journal And Pen
Believe it or not, 2021 is just around the corner and that means it’s time for a new journal! If your sister keeps a diary or a journal, or she’s an aspiring or an established writer, spoil her with a top-quality notebook and pen. We adore Moleskine’s limited edition Sakura range, but the renowned brand has many other gorgeous options from which to choose. As for pens, we think Montblanc’s colourful, Bauhaus-inspired Pix range is fabulous.
Show your sister that you love her by giving her a heart-shaped gift. For something that’s truly next-level, take a look at Dolce & Gabbana’s Dolce heart box cross-body bag in painted wicker. It’s stylish and playful, just like her.
An Infinity Pendant
The bond between siblings may have highs and lows, but it remains unbreakable. Express your appreciation for your endless bond with your sister with a gift of Tiffany’s beautiful Infinity pendant in sterling silver.
Luxury Chocolate Truffles
Sweet treats have always been part of the Christmas celebration. If your sister has a sweet tooth, she’ll love a box of chocolate truffles from Charbonnel et Walker. Ramp it up by opting for the legendary chocolatier’s For Her hamper, which includes truffles, chocolates, and more. It’s a decadently indulgent Christmas gift for sisters.
An Embellished Beanie
Keep your sister from feeling the cold with a Margaux Swarovski pearl-embellished beanie. It’s an unbelievably cute and incredibly comfortable way to add a touch of fun to a winter wardrobe. She’ll remember the occasion every time she wears it.
VIP Spa Day
Like everyone, your sister faces the ups, the downs, and the stresses of life. Give her a gift that gives her the opportunity to unwind. Book a day for her at one of London’s top spas where she can enjoy a massage, treatments, lunch, and a glass of bubbly, and emerge feeling like a new woman. If you’re really wanting to push the boat out for her, indulge her with her own private suite at Russian bathhouse, Banya No. 1. You might want to casually mention that this private steam room has been frequented by the likes of Kate Moss and Justin Bieber.
High-End Carry-On Luggage
If your sister travels frequently, let your gift help her do it in style. She’s sure to love this cabin-friendly four-wheeled bag with a flat interior designed by Marc Newson for Louis Vuitton. We certainly do.
Does your sister love tech and gadgets? Cater to her passion by giving her a smartwatch. One of the best launched for women in 2020 is Fossil’s Gen5 Julianna. It boasts 3ATM water resistance up to 30 metres, tracks activity and heart rate, has more RAM, and connects to Google Assistant, Google Play, and GPS.
Luxury Dinner And A Movie
Make your sister’s Christmas gift an experience that she will treasure. If she’s a film buff, she may appreciate dinner and a movie – especially if it takes place in one of London’s luxurious hotels. The comfortable chairs and sumptuous meal before or after the show ensure the outing will be anything but ordinary.
High-End Skincare Gift Set
If you’re absolutely stymied, beautifying lotions and potions can make a safe gift for your sister. She’s sure to appreciate them, especially if they’re from a brand that is both trusted and coveted. If you want to play it safe, gift her with Chanel’s Sublimage Le Voyage. The set includes everything she needs for a rejuvenating skin care ritual while travelling.
2 Nights in Amsterdam
If she’s got the time and the budget she could travel anywhere, so why Amsterdam? Well, if we were to highlight only one aspect of the city, it would be the architecture. Old drawbridges traverse the river Amstel, century-old windmills dot the landscape out of town, and the traditional gabled facades of the houses that line the banks of the canals are just a part of what makes Amsterdam so unique.
Indulgent Italian Getaway
For a Christmas gift for a sister that will really spoil her, send her on a glorious getaway abroad. Join her or let her take a friend on a trip to Italy, where she can enjoy art, music, wine, good food, and beautiful scenery. For something wonderfully different, go hunting for truffles in Piedmont. It’s sensory indulgence at its best.
Pick The Perfect Gift For Your Sister
Whether you see Christmas as a religious celebration, a holiday that’s sacred to family, or the celebration of light triumphing over darkness, it should be a time to be merry. Choose one or more of these gifts or let them inspire you to pick out something unique for your sister.
