Lavish your sister-in-law with a gift or several presents that symbolise your friendship. Simple gifts work well for relatives who only see each other on occasion. However, a more heartfelt, personal gift sends a more meaningful message. Send a personal gift if you and your sister-in-law are close, and choose something based on her current interests.

Sentimental Crafting Gifts

Buy a craft-loving sister-in-law a sentimental crafting gift that allows her to put together meaningful books, picture frames and other crafts. This gift works well for a woman who already loves to sew and make homemade treasures. Find a shadow box kit, scrapbooking presents or candle making kit. A shadow box is like a scrapbook that goes up on a wall. She can fill the box with pictures, charms and other decorations and then place it on a mantle or hang it up in her office. Scrapbooking kits usually come with paper and embellishments, but you can also buy additional items separately and add to the kit.

Shopping Gift Card

Buy your sister-in-law a gift card to her favourite department store if she loves to shop and you aren't sure what to get her. It's best to give this type of simple gift if you don't know her well enough to know what she would like or if you don't know her clothing size. Place the gift token in a decorative card. This type of gift also works well if she lives far away because sending a large present through the mail is not always practical due to cost.


Buy a personalised jewellery gift for a sister-in-law who is also your best friend. A gem stone necklace spelling the word "Sisters" can send a meaningful message and she will remember the bond you have every time she wears it. Lockets with pictures inside and special engravings can also make her day. Buy her a jewellery gift based on what she likes. If she loves charms, search for a few more gold or silver charms and chains for her collection.

Food Gift Baskets

Buy a food loving sister-in-law a gift basket filled with some of her favourite foods and treats. If she loves gourmet food, select a basket filled with gourmet cheeses, wines and fresh fruit. A basked full of baked goods works well for a person who enjoys banana bread in the morning. However, if she has a sweet tooth you might want to buy her a chocolate lover's gift basket, filled with organic chocolates that she hasn't tried before.
