Gifts for the New Year
For many people, a sister is the closest person who is trusted with all secrets and joys. I would like to present something special and pleasant to my beloved family member for the New Year holidays. In the article, will offer interesting gift options for girls of any age, teach you how to make gifts with your own hands, and also consider the conditions for choosing guests.
We take into account age
Of course, first of all, when buying a New Year’s surprise for a sister, her age should be taken into account, since her interests and hobbies depend on it.
It is always a pleasure for younger sisters to give all kinds of gifts, because sincere gratitude and a genuine, happy gleam in the eyes of a little girl is the biggest reward for older ones. The surest way to find out about the wishes of the baby is to write a letter to Santa Claus together. This will give you the opportunity to understand the direction of the girl’s desires and more competently approach the choice of a gift that she will find under the tree on New Year’s Eve. If the child attends kindergarten or elementary school, the following presents will be the best options for her:
- Stuffed Toys. Present a big teddy bear for the New Year, next to which the girl will feel like a baby. Of course, you can’t put such a gift under the Christmas tree, but you can just hand it over to the chimes. Delight will know no bounds.
An excellent choice would be a bouquet of soft toys with small bunnies, bears, chanterelles, kittens or puppies. Such a gift will stand for a long time and delight the sister’s eye. Pay attention to the girl’s favorite cartoon and present a soft hero from the TV.
- Creative gifts. Children love to be creative. Delight your little sister with a large set of felt-tip pens, pencils or paints, complementing them with A3 coloring. You can give a set of Play Dogh plasticine, which includes a variety of molds, and sometimes real castles for princesses. Factory for the production of ice cream, cakes or muffins — all these plasticine sets will delight the girl.
- Doll and accessories for her. No girl will refuse a new Barbie doll or baby doll. Choose sets with additional clothes and accessories. A baby doll must have a nipple, a bottle and an apron. If the baby has so many dolls, present her with a new dollhouse with furniture and a pool. For a baby doll, buy a baby carriage — the sister will already feel like an adult young lady, walking with her “daughter”.
- Role-playing games. An excellent option would be a set of children’s dishes, the girl will be able to arrange real tea parties, be ready to keep her dolls company. You can present a children’s kitchen with toy products, a cash register for selling things in a store, or a dressing table with a mirror for little ladies. All these gifts will help the cutie feel grown up and important.
Whatever gift you give your younger sister, remember that the biggest reward will be playing together, where she, of course, will be the main one. Therefore, on New Year’s holidays, find a free hour and be a sales assistant in a store or an assistant in the kitchen.
It is a bit difficult for a teenage girl to choose gifts, as there are a lot of ideas, but tastes change so rapidly that you may not have time with a gift. Try to communicate more with your sister in order to be aware of her current hobbies. There is a category of universal gifts that will appeal to any teenager.
- Board games. The perfect gift from a brother of the same age who loves to play with his sister. Board games will help you get closer and give you the opportunity to spend more time with each other. The advantage of such a gift is that the girl will be able to invite her friends to visit and play with them. Excellent options for a New Year’s surprise will be: Monopoly, Jenga, Crocodile, Guess the Word and other trendy games. If your sister is into jigsaw puzzles, you can give her a large 500- or 1000-piece set.
- Sports Equipment. If a teenager loves active pastime, present roller or figure skates, on which she can ride with her friends. An excellent choice would be a bicycle or a large scooter. Teenagers are very mobile, so they need a vehicle that they can even drive to school.
- Accessories for technology. The girl will definitely be delighted with the new lens or selfie stick. Now it is fashionable to have portable speakers for your phone to listen to music on the street. A great idea would be wireless headphones for your phone, thanks to which your sister will forever forget about tangled wires. The owner of a personal computer can buy an original luminous keyboard.
- personalized gifts. The girl will be happy to receive an accessory with a photo as a present. Order a phone case with her best photo or a pillow with a cute pattern in the online store. You can present a T‑shirt with an affectionate inscription “Best sister”, “Favorite sister” or with a cheerful one — “Difficult teenager”. A flip calendar with her pictures is a good idea: take the best photos from her social networks and order a calendar that she will admire every day.
- Stylist consultation. In adolescence, girls begin to know themselves, open up from a new perspective and explore their femininity. During this period, the formation of personality takes place. Self-confidence will give a good appearance. To look fashionable and stylish will help consultation with a specialist who will conduct color typing and, based on the external data of the girl (type of figure, oval face), will correctly select a wardrobe for a young person. A certificate for a stylist’s consultation will be a wonderful surprise for your sister for the New Year.
- Fashion sneakers. Sports style is now at the peak of popularity. Sneakers are worn under dresses, jeans, shorts, tunics and even classic suits and coats. A new pair of fashionable sneakers will be a great gift for the New Year. It is recommended to take gentle colors: pink, blue, beige, mint, white or flesh. The most versatile color that goes with any wardrobe is white, so when in doubt, go for this shade.
Adult girls can give something practical and necessary.
- Camera. If possible, get a professional camera that will help you take high-quality pictures while traveling or arrange photo shoots for yourself and your family.
- Electronic book. Unfortunately, books in modern stores are very expensive. Not everyone has the opportunity to buy another novelty, and it is not always convenient to carry it with you, especially if the book is large and has a hard cover. Book lovers will definitely like an electronic device, thanks to which it will be possible to read their favorite works anywhere.
As a rule, they are small in size, so they will fit in any handbag, but at the same time they are large enough so that the eyes do not get tired of small letters. Some have an audiobook playback function, which is also very convenient. Complete the gift with wireless headphones and present the set in a gift box. The girl will be very grateful.
- Cosmetics and perfumery. Perfume is always a win-win option for any occasion. If you know your sister’s preferences or she already has a favorite fragrance that she does not change, give her such a present — she will certainly be delighted with it. You can give a set of cosmetics, having previously looked into your sister’s cosmetic bag and peeping what kind of products she uses. If you wish, purchase a gift certificate, which will greatly facilitate your task, and your sister will be able to choose a present for herself.
- Jelry. Give the girl jelry made of silver or gold, depending on financial capabilities. An excellent gift would be a beautiful brooch with colored stones, which will add zest to any look. A heart-shaped pendant will say much more to your sister than you can put into words. A beautiful ring with a small stone or earrings with cubic zirkonia will also be a great option for a New Year’s gift.
You can present a small jelry box with departments and drars where numerous items will be stored.
- Homear. Nothing is more appreciated by adult girls than comfort and warmth. At home, you can always relax and walk around in loose clothes. Give your sister pajamas, a silk dressing gown or slippers with fur pom-poms. She will use these things on a daily basis and remember the care of her brother or sister.
- Shawl. Shawls and stoles have become an integral part of women’s wardrobe. They can be tied around the neck under outerar or thrown over a dress. You can choose a branded shawl in a beautiful shade that will always be in fashion and will suit your sister’s wardrobe.
- Terry bathrobe or set of tols. A soft set with personalized embroidery will be a wonderful New Year’s present for your sister. On the back of the robe, you can embroider the name of the girl with gold or silver threads, and write congratulations on the holiday on the tols. A very practical and useful gift that will definitely be used.
The older sister is probably already working and can independently purchase the necessary things. The following gifts can be a wonderful surprise for an adult woman.
- Subscription to the sports complex. A great gift for a woman who plays sports and looks after her appearance. You can purchase a subscription to a large fitness center to visit all the halls. Or separately to the pool, gym, group classes.
- Certificate for a lingerie store. A good option for an adult sister, because no woman will refuse a new lace lingerie set. She can buy not only a bra and panties, but also much more. For example, bodysuits that are fashionable this season, a beautiful nightgown, pajamas or a silk peignoir with lace trim. Be sure that your surprise will be received with great pleasure.
- Certificate for a beauty salon. A great choice if you do not know what to give a woman. A versatile gift for anyone. The sister will be able to visit a beautician, get a manicure or pedicure, fashionable haircut and coloring. Many salons offer masseurs, saunas and solariums. Believe me, the recipient will be immensely grateful for such a practical present.
- Decorative items for the home. As a rule, adult sisters already have their own family nest, which they always try to furnish beautifully. Help her with this by giving something beautiful for the house. You can first ask her what exactly is missing in a particular room. As a gift for the New Year, beautiful figurines, table and floor vases, a set of champagne glasses, a picture and much more are perfect.
Try to buy things that harmoniously fit into the interior of the apartment.
- Theater ticket. A romantic nature who loves to attend social events will definitely like a ticket to the theater for an interesting play or opera. Go with your sister together, and then look into a cafe or restaurant, because the time spent together is the best gift for any person.
In addition to all of the above, there is still a huge variety of original gift ideas for the New Year.
- Master class certificate. This may be a visit to a culinary circle, where the sister will learn how to bake cakes, cook delicious Italian dishes or Georgian khachapuri. You can give a subscription to dance lessons, where the girl will be taught to move plastically. Creative individuals will appreciate a certificate for an acting or painting course.
- Photo album. Find your baby photos and order a printed album, leaving space next to each picture. On the empty space, write your memories associated with this or that image, as ll as wishes. In such an original way, you can please and congratulate your loved one on the holiday.
- Photoshoot. Any representative of the fair sex will be pleased to receive such a surprise. Regardless of age, everyone will be happy to have the opportunity to show off in front of the lens of a professional photographer in a luxurious dress with hair and makeup.
- For the extreme. If your sister loves the thrill, give her a certificate to attend a fencing, archery, or rock climbing class. A great gift would be the opportunity to fly in a balloon or helicopter.
Skydiving is for the most fearless girls. But a horse ride or a riding lesson will appeal to even a little girl.
We prepare a gift with our own hands
Gifts can be made with your own hands.
- T‑shirt. Stock up on a white T‑shirt and acrylic paints. They are waterproof and have a rich color. Draw a picture or come up with an interesting inscription. Let the paint dry for about 6 hours and iron on the reverse side. T‑shirt is ready.
- Postcard in scrapbooking style. Grab a sheet of cardboard, interesting magazine clippings, or print out book quotes. Put your memories and pleasant moments on paper.
- Bracelet. Buy fishing line and beads or beads. In stores, you can find ready-made kits with everything you need for a homemade bracelet or beads. Create an original piece of jelry for your sister that she won’t take off.
When choosing a New Year’s gift for your sister, it is important to consider some features that will help you decide and buy the most suitable present. Of course, age is taken into account first of all, then hobbies and hobbies. You need to focus on the taste preferences of the sister and her personal characteristics.
- If a gift is chosen not for a sister, but for a sister of a husband or boyfriend, be sure to consult with them and find out what exactly will be appropriate to present and bring her joy.
- When buying a Christmas present for your cousin, try to communicate with her friends who are aware of her desires. The last thing to clarify is the budget allocated for the surprise, and you can go shopping.
- To the sister-in-law, the sister of the husband, you can present something practical and necessary for the home, for example, a set of bed linen, a tea set, a beautiful figurine or candlesticks. A good gift would be a new kettle or multicooker.
- The guy’s sister is usually given something neutral and inexpensive, such as a chocolate set, a fruit basket, or a New Year’s souvenir. If you are very close to her, you can present a beautiful pendant.
Women are always happy to receive a gift, especially from a loved one, but there is a category that is best avoided. In no case should you give surprises hinting at a person’s lack.
For example, a chubby girl should not be given a fitness membership unless she herself asked for it. The same applies to girls with skin problems — it would be tactless to give them a trip to the beautician. Try to be gentle with everyone.
The list of taboos includes animals. Puppies and kittens look adorable, but they need constant care, and veterinary care is far from cheap. An exception can be made only to a little sister who has long dreamed of a dog, but only with the consent of her parents.
The finishing touch to any gift is decoration. Wrap the gift box in holiday paper and decorate with a bright bow. Put it under the tree and wait for the chiming clock. Be sure to congratulate your sister by saying warm words. By the way, if you and your relatives are in different cities or countries, you can pay for the surprise in advance and send it by mail to the desired address. Remember that the main thing is care and love.
