Mostly Lisa's Holiday Gift Guide: For the Older Bro or Sis

Wednesday, December 4, 2013
 
 
This next installment of my Holiday Gift Guide is for the older siblings in our lives. Whether you have one or a bunch of them, the older brother or sister can be a very important person to look up to! They are the person you either idolize or at least get confidence from. I know with my own sister that I am always able to talk to her and have a shoulder to cry on. I have not (obviously) had the experience of having an older brother, but I can only imagine how great it could be. So enjoy some of my gift ideas and I hope they go on your list! And of course, you can always rely on me finding budget friendly items! These, again, are under $100.

Animal Print Ballet Flats: You really can't go wrong with a great pair of flats! These great cheetah print ballet flats from Gap are perfect for a sister who is stylish and on her feet for long periods of time. From reviews on these, these flats easily mold to your feet shape and are very comfortable. Plus, they are on sale right now for only $40!

Osiris Mith Sneaker: I can only assume the older brother enjoys comfortable shoes, so these sneakers will add some great style to their wardrobe! These skate-inspired shoes are super casual and will look great with any outfit. Trick these up for only $30.

Kate Spade Things We Love Charm Bracelet: So Kate Spade has been a very common theme in most of these Gift Guides, but it's only because there are so many great gift ideas to choose from. This bracelet is a great take on a BFF bracelet that any older sister would love to wear. With cute charms that include pearls and diamonds, this would be a great stocking stuffer. It's a little pricey at $88, but it's something sis would remember for a long time.

Timex Watch: Make sure your bro knows what time it is with this great Timex watch from Macy's! It comes with a black leather strap that will look sleek with any outfit, whether he's dressing up or down and it's even water resistant. This is also a great item that will last him a long time and is a great investment piece. Price is $70.

Rebecca Minkoff Monogram Coin Purse: I definitely want to get something like this for my own sister, especially since it's extremely personalized! This leather coin purse is super cute and includes a monogrammed initial of your choosing! On ShopBop.com it's only $50!

J.Crew CHUP Socks: Who doesn't love socks? Who doesn't love a great fair isle print? These combine both and are also from J.Crew. They are would be a perfect stocking stuffer and come in a variety of prints and colors. $34 only!

Ultra-Moisturizing Hand & Body Cream:  Victoria's Secret is a perfect place to stop in and grab some yummy smelling hand and body lotion. This exotic scent will keep your sis smelling great and have super soft skin! They also have a great special on this lotion, $12 for one or 3 for $25!

House of Marley Headphones: Earphones are a necessity for anyone, but for your brother you can get these great noise-isolating headphones from PacSun! Not only are these earth friendly, but they have their own button controller and will also work with his Apple devices. I actually want these for myself! This is another great investment piece and will cost you about $100. I definitely think they would be worth the money though, and your brother would definitely love you even more. 
 
Always,
Mostly Lisa
