My sister Amanda is pretty flipping cool. I've said it before, but I will say it again: There are a few people I need by my side to do this thing called life and she is one of them. Sure, Amanda can be a pain and she doesn't understand the concept of coffee before talk-y (the girl wakes up ready to go), but she also channels that enthusiasm to encourage me to take big chances, and she holds my hand while I do it. That's why when it comes to the finding Mother's Day gifts for your sister, I understand just how important that task is to you.
Because whether she is your sister by blood or choice, it can be tough to find the perfect gift for the girl who picks up the phone no matter the hour. So, I went ahead and scoured some of the best ideas out there because an ordinary gift just won't do. Whether your sister needs a solution for helping her snooze more soundly or new pieces to add to her already stylish wardrobe, you're bound to find something that shows her you are thrilled to count yourself among the people who know her best.

1. Flowers That Last A Year
OK, I bought these for my mom for her birthday and they are simply stunning. And the best part? You can say goodbye to Mother's Day flowers that last a few days because these Saaya Roses will last a year or longer with absolutely no water needed. Choose your color and packaging, and treat your sis to year-round natural beauty. Arrangements start at $24.
2. A Comfy Robe
Ideal for a lazy day at home, this robe is handcrafted by makers working with Aravali, which provides a fair wage to close to 150 artisans in the Jaipur area. (So your sister can feel good about lounging around all afternoon while wearing it.)
3. Add Some More Style To Her Closet
Just because your sister is a mother doesn't mean she can't bring some serious style to her mom game. Take this denim jacket from Gap. I mean, I feel like a jean jacket is a wardrobe essential, but this one brings some serious style points with its cropped bodice.
4. When She Adores Animals (& Snail Mail)
I don't know if I've ever met an animal-adorned anything that I don't love. That's why I am pretty smitten with this Cat Return Address Stamp from the PaperPeachShop. If your sister adores animals (and sends mail on the regular), then you'll want to check out the many available options, including a pug, eagle, rabbit, and even unicorn.
5. A Customizable Face Mask
Perfect for the sister who lives for at-home spa nights, Purvari’s pure powder formula contains only clay and whole botanicals (dried and crushed roots, petals, and herbs), and you can customize your mask depending on what you mix it with: milk to lighten dark spots, for example, or yogurt for added probiotic benefit.
6. A Little Love For Her Growing Bump
My sister will be 22 weeks pregnant on this upcoming Mother's Day, so I am treating her to all things self care. That's why I love this Body Boost Bump Love Kit, which includes stretch mark butter and oil, raw sugar scrub, and an aroma mist. Treat a mama-to-be to one of two scents — Milk & Honey or Lavender Vanilla.
7. Say Sayonara To Everyday Yoga Pants
Whether I am at my desk or running around with my daughter, I kind of love to be comfortable — but I also like to look cute while doing it. That's why I'm in love with these stylish-but-relaxed foldover joggers from Aerie. Scoop up a pair for your busy sis and she will thank you for keeping her comfort (and good taste) intact.
8. A Small, Beautiful Reminder
Because every mama needs something to cling to every now and then, right? That's why this "Inhale Exhale Repeat" bracelet from JKCEDesigns is all kinds of awesome, not only because it provides a relaxing reminder, but the hand-stamped charm makes it especially gorgeous.
9. The Gift Of Self Love
If your sister is into boutique skincare and fragrance, spoil her with this set from MILEO New York: Includes 4 award-winning elixirs with anti-aging ingredients Oud and bakuchiol, all of which smell like absolute heaven.
10. A Sparkling Star
Because babies and toddlers like to grab dangling earrings and your sister might still need a little sparkle, these adorable studs from Rowan will do just the trick. Check out their other styles of studs, too.
