17 Practical Gifts for Your Sister-in-Law (We Love Idea #6!)
If your sister-in-law is as fabulous as mine, you’ll want to give her a gift that shows how much you appreciate the bond between you. Seriously, I couldn’t have picked a better sister if I tried. Now that I think about it, I probably owe my brother a thank you card or something!
We’ve done posts on Gifts for Your Sister (great for any occasion!) and Birthday Gifts for Your Sister, which both included some pretty cool stuff if you’re so inclined to browse there. But here we’ll show you even more gifts specifically for sisters-in-law to help you find the perfect thing and keep all of your bases covered. Let’s get to shopping!
Sister-in-Law Gift Ideas
1. Spa Gift Box
This spa box would make a perfect sister in law birthday gift, Christmas gift, or for any occasion that calls for some pampering! This gift set comes with a hand-poured lavender soy wax candle, all-natural lavender soap, a rose petal bath bomb, orange bath bomb, peppermint lip balm, and an engraved heart with a sweet message from you.
You also have an option to add the shop’s entwined double-circle gold necklace to complete the box.
2. Humorous Coffee Mug
The PERFECT gift for your sister-in-law with a great sense of humor, this ceramic mug pretty much nails it. (For me, anyway, and I’d wager I’m not the only one for whom the message resonates.) Just think – every time she pours her morning coffee, she’ll point at your brother and laugh. Priceless.
3. Oversized Slouch Tote
For the stylish and practical sister-in-law! Everyone needs an oversized tote, and we fell in love with this one. The pattern is super chic, and the supple leather straps make it comfortable enough to carry all day.
Neat touch: it features a personalizable leather tag with her name that matches the straps. So cute. It’s made from 100% organic cotton and features a soft inner lining. We bet she’ll carry it pretty much everywhere.
4. Glazed Ceramic Trinket Dish
We thought this would make a beautiful post-wedding gift to welcome a new sister-in-law to the family, but any excuse to give her something thoughtful and sweet will do. Trinket dishes are always a fantastic gift, and whenever she uses this one to hold her jewelry, the sentiment will make her smile.
5. Personalized Travel Jewelry Case
When we saw this pretty monogrammed jewelry case, we immediately thought it would be the perfect wedding rehearsal gift for her to use on her honeymoon, or any other exciting getaway. Who’s the world’s most thoughtful (and gorgeous) sister-in-law? Why, you are, of course.
Made from pebbled vegan leather with linen lining, this travel case features her initials foil-embossed on the front for a bit of shine. It’s available in seventeen super-cute colors!
6. Bonus Sister Birthstone Initial Necklace
This pretty necklace comes in your choice of silver, gold, and rose gold and features a gemstone pendant representing the month of her birth. It also includes a heart pendant stamped with her initial and a beautiful message from you letting her know how happy you are to call her sister and count her as a BFF.
7. Stackable Leather Bracelet
We love the boho vibe of this delicate bracelet, and the understated print etched into it is so feminine. You can keep “sister,” have it personalized with her name, or customize it with a short message from you.
Order the bracelet in your choice of grey, brown, rose gold, sand, or patterned pink. All feature a brass clasp and come in three sizes.
8. Soul Sister Picture Frame
Give your sister-in-law the personalized gift of a frame with a cute pic of you both, and we guarantee she’ll display it prominently and show you off to anyone who comes over!
It’s made from solid hardwood coated with your choice of twelve finishes and printed with your choice of twelve different corner accents. A metal clip is attached to the board for your picture, with personalized text printed next to it in white.
9. European Floral Patterned Pillow
This pretty burlap pillowcase is printed with a beautiful heartfelt message to your special sister-in-law that, quite honestly, will probably make her cry. It totally beats a greeting card any day, and we’re lovin’ the rustic vintage design!
It features a hidden zipper and doesn’t come with a padded insert, but it’s a standard-sized throw pillowcase (18″ x 18″) so it’ll be easy to find your own.
10. Cut Glass Jar Candle
The candles from Voluspa are so luxe, they make your house smell like expensive perfume. (Which is especially awesome if you can’t really afford expensive perfume anyway.)
There are seven gorgeous scents to choose from, so whether she’s a floral kinda girl, likes her home to smell warm and spicy, or is into woodsy fragrances – there’s a candle your sister-in-law will love. Not only does it smell awesome, but the hand-poured candles from Voluspa come in gorgeous cut-glass keepsake jars.
11. Cora Pot
These hand-painted stoneware pots are so unique, and their cheerful design would brighten any space. If your sis-in-law is a houseplant person, they’d make a great gift, either as a set or separately. The smaller planter is 6 x 6.25 inches in diameter, and the large measures at 8.25 x 9 inches in diameter.
12. Monogrammed Blanket Scarf
Keep your sister-in-law cozy with this super soft plaid blanket scarf! Great to wrap up in on autumn evenings out, or with a cute knit hat on a wintery day. It’s versatile enough that she can drape it across her shoulders and wear it as a shawl, bundle it up like a scarf, or cozy up with it blanket-style. Such a practical gift idea!
It’s made from 100% acrylic, measures 31 x 82 inches, and comes in 10 pretty colors. Embroidered monogramming is available to make it even more special!
13. Travel Coffee Mug
by Etsy: DesignNovelties
“Berry Best Sister in Law Ever” is printed in the prettiest font across the front of this berry themed travel tumbler, she’ll love to take her java in it on the go. It comes with a lid for sipping, holds 20 oz. of her beverage of choice, and will keep her drink cold or hot for hours!
14. Spa Retreat Gift Card
Seriously, have you ever heard anyone complain about getting a gift card for a spa day? No way. If you have, we’ll generously take it off their hands free of charge. Because we’re super selfless.
If you just can’t decide what to give your sister-in-law, give a wellness gift with a day of pampering at her spa of choice. All you need to do is use the website to find her perfect getaway place, pick an amount, and receive the hugs when she opens the card.
15. Antique Jewelry Tree
Whether you choose silver, bronze, or cyan, this jewelry tree really does look like an antique. It’s beautiful enough to display anywhere she needs to keep her jewelry in order, whether it’s her vanity, dresser, bathroom counter – even by the kitchen sink to hold her rings during dishwashing duties.
Or she could just pass dishwashing duties off to your fabulous sibling and kick back with a glass of wine. No judgement here.
16. ‘Sister’ Art Print
The colorful abstract energy of this art print is stunning, and we’re sure it will brighten your sweet sister-in-law’s day wherever she chooses to hang it. We imagine it on an entranceway wall for an instant pick-me-up after a long day at work.
Every piece in Minted’s collection is created by an independent artist, and this one was painted by Karisa Marley. Conversations with her five-year-old daughter inspired the bold pattern and vivid colors that make this piece a completely unique gift.
It comes in your choice of seven sizes, and a huge variety of framing, moulding, and matting options to personalize it for her decor.
17. Rosé All Day Gift Crate
Food and wine baskets are almost always featured on our lists of gift recommendations, and we thought this one would be an ideal gift for your sister-in-law.
This amazing gift crate features a bottle of Rosé All Day, which if you haven’t tried, you need to! We suggest you make your sister-in-law a nice spicy pad thai and share a chilled bottle on a Friday night over dinner.
Or share a bottle on a Friday night without any food at all. Your call.
The salty peppery water crackers, garlic cheese, and cinnamon sugar cookies in this basket are a nice touch, too. Whether she shares the truffles or keeps them to herself is at her discretion, of course.
Hooray for Sisterhood
Show me a family without drama and I’ll show you a bunch of people without a pulse. Or who are REALLY good at keeping secrets. Or who have short-term memory loss. You get the point.
Whatever the case, when said family drama arises, your sister-in-law will be Your Girl Friday because she “gets it” on a level that many of your friends probably don’t. She’ll laugh with you, cry with you, and gossip about your crazy cousin with you. She’ll be your sounding board and confidante.
That’s why it’s so satisfying find the perfect gift for your sister-in-law, regardless of the occasion. On behalf of some pretty cool sisters-in-law, (at least we like to think we are), we sincerely hope we’ve helped you find it!
