Many of these gift ideas are not only great for your sister, but they would also make for a happy sister-in-law or boyfriend’s sister.  

 Happy gifting!!


GLOSSYBOX Subscription

Be warned:  Once you discover this for your sister, you will most likely order a subscription for yourself!

After answering a series of lifestyle and interest questions, GLOSSYBOX will create a customized box of travel-sized luxury beauty products from skincare to cosmetics to fragrance to whatever else her inner diva desires.  Your sister can provide feedback about the products that she receives to further personalize her monthly box of beauty magic.  Seriously, ladies, this concept is pretty amazing.  If you’re not convinced, check out this list of a sampling of their featured brands:  A Perfume Organic, Alterna, Burberry Beauty, Figs & Rouge, Nastassja, and many more. Featured publications like Cosmopolitan, Allure, InStyle, and The New York Times, you can rest assured that GLOSSYBOX knows how to create an in-home oasis in a pretty little pink box just for your sister.



A Great Scarf

Nobody can deny a great scarf.  As a gift, it’s more about where you got it than what’s on it.  Below are some of my favorite scarves from some notable retailers.

Owned by women who look out for other women by donating a portion of their profits to help other women start small businesses, Shabby Apple is one of my absolute favorite online shops.  Their clothes are well made with an artistic and vintage flare, and they often feature up-and-coming designers who deserve our attention.  Their pieces get noticed, and I love it!

Alright, here’s another one that might be a bit dangerous.  Start with the scarves, but don’t try to tell me that I didn’t warn you!  You’ll probably end up finding more for yourself than your sister-in-law. eShakti started as a small webstore featuring cotton basics, but they now offer custom-made clothing to fit your exact size and style.  And, it’s actually affordable.
