10 Perfect Christmas Gift Ideas for Your Sister 🎄

From Books to Self Care, Concerts to Gift Cards, These Are the Gifts That Your Sister Is Really Hoping to See Under the Tree This Year

If you need a great Christmas gift idea for your sister and are having a hard time thinking of one, then not to worry. Today I have just the thing you’re looking for because today’s post is going to include a list of 10 amazing places you can find a Christmas gift for your sister. And everybody’s sister is a little bit different from everybody else's. And as such, I tried to get options on the list that I thought had the broadest base of appeal. And to help you out I will even put in a link anytime you can use one of our convenient GiftYa gift at any of these locations.

If you haven’t used a GiftYa before, they are essentially a gift card that exists in an all digital format which comes with a bunch of nice benefits. They can be bought and sent wirelessly in just a couple seconds/clicks. And since they are on your phone you never have to worry about losing them. They will always exist in a digital form. And another benefit to that digital format is that it means you never have to do any of the math to keep track of the balance. Your phone’s calculator handles all of that for you.

But that’s enough of the required blurb about the “brand”. Let me get right to that list of Christmas gift ideas for sisters that brought you here in the first place. And as always, thank you for the click, and thank you even more for actually taking the time to read!

1 - Winter Fragrance

Candles, Room Sprays, and Body Mists Will Always Be a Hit

Whether your sister is 13 or 30 or 93, chances are she loves a good scented candle. After all, what could make her home cozier during those cold winter months than the bright scent of candy apple or the warm aroma of fresh-baked cookies wafting through the room?

Bath & Body Works has a wide following – for both their personal fragrance and their three-wick candles. But what makes this a great gift for any sister is that the fragrances are the same across lotions, body washes, and candles – making it easy to put together a set.

In addition to Christmas scents, the aromatherapy line has scents for relaxation (eucalyptus + spearmint), peaceful sleep (vanilla + lavender), and renewal (rose + magnolia) – plus they come in bath salts and body oils as well as lotions and body washes.

Not sure what scent she’d like best? If you don’t trust your nose, you can always grab her a Bath & Body Works gift card so that she can pick out something she really likes for herself! 

GiftYa Recommends: Complete the gift with a digital Bath & Body Works gift card so that she can stock up on her favorite scents all year round.

2 - Holiday Set from ULTA Beauty

Where She Can St

ULTA Beauty has everything beauty and self care – from luxury skincare brands like Murad to her favorite drugstore face wash. And with the holiday season comes holiday gift sets, which are a great way to save some money on full-size products and get her something she’ll be excited about.

You can find a set of ULTA brand lip glosses or an advent calendar of nail polishes, a loofa shaped like a duck in a Santa hat or colorful bath bombs. If you aren’t sure what she would like best, ULTAs associates should be able to steer you to something any lady would love.

Still not sure? You can also go the route of scheduling a makeover for her – and paying the bill in advance, of course.
