Sisters and brothers have a unique and special sibling relationship. When it comes time for the holidays or a birthday celebration, siblings often exchange gifts. Depending on the age of the siblings, parents may have to assist when it comes to buying and wrapping the presents. Older siblings are capable of going out on their own to pick out a nice gift for their counterpart.

Video Games

A good gift from a little sister to her older brother is a video game. Video games make fun presents because they can be played and enjoyed over and over again. Some games even allow for two players, so the siblings can enjoy playing the game together. If a big brother already has the video games he wants, another idea for a gift from a little sister is to buy video game accessories, such as controllers, nunchucks, remotes or charging stations.

Craft Sets

Many young girls enjoy playing with craft sets because it allows them to have fun while being artistic. As a gift idea, a big brother can give his little sister a craft set so that she can make something that she enjoys. You can find craft sets for making jewellery, hair accessories, clothes, stickers and even for creating scrapbooks.

Book Sets

Book sets are thoughtful gifts for an older brother or younger sister who enjoys reading. Find out what genre of books your sibling likes most, or get a name of a favourite author, and look for book sets that your brother or sister does not yet have.

Bottle of Wine

As siblings get older, gifts become more sophisticated. If your big brother or younger sister is over 21 years old, consider buying a special beverage as a gift, such as a bottle of wine that you picked up on your trip to the vineyards. You can even include a pair of nice wine glasses to go along with the bottle of wine.

Gift Cards

For big brothers and little sisters who are not very close but still want to give a gift for the holidays, gift cards can be a good idea. You can find gift cards to restaurants, bookstores, music stores, online stores, department stores and coffee houses. Get one or two gift cards and put them into the card that you give to your sibling.


Younger siblings can get the help of a parent to assist with making their brother or sister a gift from scratch. Create something like a painted T-shirt, a braided bracelet, a picture collage or a poem. Older siblings can also give one another homemade gifts. If the older brother is an artist or a sculptor, he can give his little sister a painting or sculpture. If the younger sister is a chef, she can bake her big brother his favourite dessert as a gift.


Brothers and sisters can exchange cosmetic gifts, such as cologne and perfume or shaving lotion and body butter. Cosmetic gifts should be presented in a special packaging, such as a gift basket, to make the gift more presentable.
