My sister is a big fan of Gucci accessories, so I know this newer mini bag will be an instant hit.

This brand makes some of the softest zero-itch sweaters I’ve ever come across.

To take any and every outfit to the next level.

Cameron Diaz and Katherine Power’s clean wine brand is the perfect way to celebrate throughout the holidays.

My sister has yet to become an Ugg girl (well, since her early aughts high school days), but that changes now.

She’s got classic taste, but I think this Bottega card case offers just a hint of trendiness.

My sis is a recent first-time homeowner, so I already know these bespoke towels will complete her next decorating project: the guest bathroom.

She’s been dropping hints for months about the pajamas from Hill House Home.

Suffice it to say I’m going to win sister of the year for this gift.

I love gifting other people things that I already use and love, so a starter pack to Merit’s clean makeup is a no-brainer.

Despite my sister’s more classic sartorial tendencies, she loves a cheery graphic print every now and again.

There’s a reason the Replica By the Fireplace candle has a cult following: Its warm, smoky blend of vanilla and chestnut instantly creates a cozy vibe that’s ideal for the winter.

NYE is calling…

Mixing metals has never been easier, or cooler, for that matter.

Loewe scarves are the kind that need to be experienced IRL to truly understand. Yes, they’re that soft.

My sister’s collection of white sneakers runs deep, but I know she won’t have this green-accented pair exclusive to J.Crew.

To tap into the après-ski vibe, actual ski trip notwithstanding.

A simple but stylish update to all her 2023 outfits.

To fuel ideas for her next vacation.

Speaking of vacations, I already know she’s a fan of wearing this beachy brand.

These puffiness-obliterating cryo globes will maximize any skincare routine.

At-home workouts have never looked so chic.

Pajamas worth leaving the house in.

Since I’m always stealing her Laniege lip products, it’s about time I bought her a fresh restock.

I was recently gifted this beautiful coffee table book, and I’d recommend it to anyone. Flipping through the images and notes from beloved poet Patti Smith is simply a delight.

As sisters, we’re always stealing—er, borrowing—each other’s clothes. She tends to reach for the cozy Donni pieces from my closet, so it’s about time I help her add some of them to her own.

Nineties vibes are big here.

And now we’re entering the section I like to call expert hostessing.

I could stare at this bowl for hours.

Handpicked and cold-pressed olives from a family-run farm in California are the magic behind this olive oil.

Any décor-minded person would be overjoyed to open one of Assouline’s famed destination coffee table books.

Skincare fanatics, rise.

As I mentioned, loungewear is where my sister’s wardrobe gets brighter and trendier. Marni’s collaboration with Uniqlo is as cozy as it is colorful. Shop the matching Merino Blend Semi Flare Knitted Pants ($60).

Who can say no to ultra-luxe socks?

The accessory that every fashion person has in their home.

Getting a pair of these to store cotton pads in the bathroom or spices in kitchen would make a genius (and deceivingly affordable) gift.

Because a good-smelling home is a cozy home.

No more traveling with bulky steamers.

At the perfect intersection of thoughtful and useful.

Gray Malin’s prints are a fan favorite in my family.
