Sisters, just like wives and girlfriends, run the gamut. Your kid sister probably isn’t going to like the same thing as your sister with a newborn or your sister who’s a cat lady. Add in the fact that, unlike shopping for your wife or girlfriend, you may have more than one sister to buy for (who will almost definitely be comparing gifts), and you’ve suddenly got a lot on your plate. To help, we rounded up a bunch of stuff we’ve written about before along with a handful of new things that would make great gifts (all of which can conveniently be bought on Amazon), so that you can find that perfect something for whatever sister you are shopping for.
