Sister's Day: A Dose of Sibling Love

“A sister is a little bit of childhood that can never be lost.”
~Marion C. Garretty

Happy Sister’s Day! Haven’t heard of it? Neither had we until a few weeks ago.

Apparently, Sister’s Day happens the first Sunday of August and the intention is to celebrate being or having a sister.

Nobody seems to know its origins, but Hallmark and Crayola are big proponents. OK, so maybe this is simply another creative marketing invention, but isn’t it a nice one?

Sisters play such a big role in our lives – a playmate in childhood, a confidente in our teens and an invaluable friend as we grow older. How often do we take time out to celebrate our relationship with them?

We are incredibly lucky to have two little girls. Right now they’re becoming the best of friends, spending umpteen hours with each other, especially over the summer months. Our hope is that this closeness carries through but naturally, what happens in their adult years will be up to them.

Thinking about your sister? Surprise her with a thoughtful gift. A lovely necklace, earrings, body brush gift set or even a cheeky apron ‘Will cook for shoes’ or retro mirror compact ‘You’ll always be my best friend, you know too much’ all make great gifts. If she's into green living, how about a collapsible eco-basket? And if she likes gardening, a tin of paraben-free natural hand salve - great for green thumbs.

For something special for your sister any day of the year, check out our collection of gifts at Lavish & Lime.
