Celebrate your sister's birthday with a gift that will speak to her spirit. When you ask yourself how you love your sister, stop to count the ways. Since sisters come in all ages, let that be one of the guiding factors. Gifts abound for the littlest sister, a teenage sister or a grown-up sister. Ideas for your sister's birthday gift may include engraved baby spoons, a spa day or a family tree.

Baby Sister

If the family has welcomed a baby girl in the past year, Mom and Dad can help big brothers or sisters choose a special first birthday gift. Give your baby sister a birthday gift that she will cherish as she grows up and will keep forever. Select an engraved silver baby spoon and matching cup. In time, she can pass these treasures to her own children. A baby may not be able to fully comprehend the value of a gift, but your gift will be no less precious.

Teen Sister

Teenage girls hover poised on the edge of being all grown up. If your sister is in her teen years, she likely will love a spa day. Find out if your sister has a dream spa. If not, choose a spa in your town that will pamper a teenage girl. Call in advance to ask if they welcome teens. Give your sister a spa day gift token in a basket of select spa products, such as body lotion, shower gel, body scrub and a loofah. She will appreciate that you treated her like an adult and she will feel beautiful, which, of course, she is.

Adult Sister

The beauty of sisters is that they are sisters for a lifetime. Friends may come and friends may go, but sisters are in it for the duration. Show your adult sister how much she means to you and the family with a gift of family. Prepare in advance and give your sister a genealogy report. Prepare an accompanying journal describing events you learn about as you gather your family history. In a way, a family tree is gift for you as well. Share the meaning of discovering how your and your sister's branches fit into your family's tree of life. Don't worry if the tree is not completed by her birthday. Make a commitment to work on it together. The My Heritage website provides free tools to begin a family tree.
