Over the years she has been, variously, your partner in crime, your nemesis, and your chief wardrobe-enhancer. This holiday, give back to the sister who has lost so many sweaters by your hand with borrowable, bang-on-trend fashion pieces—or, more selflessly, beauty and home gifts you might leave her in peace to enjoy.

Like Geena Davis’s character in Thelma & Louise (her loquacious personality favors her too), your sib was born to drive with the top down, hair whipping in the wind. Star-quality sunglasses from new luxury eyewear brand Smoke x Mirrors will complete the look.

She will always choose gold over silver, and her yen for the precious metal extends to her skincare. Consider Tatcha’s acupressure-inspired face massager, which dissolves stress and detoxifies skin via lymphatic cleansing. Worth its weight.

She takes a low-maintenance approach to getting dressed, and demands comfort alongside the chic. This poppy Mary Katrantzou sweatshirt will work just as well with her go-to boyfriend jeans as it will over her favorite pajamas.

Red lipstick and a ready laugh are her signatures, and these swishy enamel and gold earrings from Aurelie Bidermann will make an excellent complement to both.

She loves cup of tea in the afternoon, and will enjoy it all that much more when it’s served in this ceramic espresso maker–shaped pot.

The two of you will soon be taking off on your family’s annual Mustique trip. She’ll be as excited to snap a waterside selfie in this new Lisa Marie Fernandez number as she’ll be to dive in the sparkling water.
