Gifts for Sisters- Sisters Quotes

Wondering how sisters quotes can be used as gifts for sisters? Find out how.  There are many wonderful gifts that one can give to sisters. Depending on their interests, you can buy her favorite stuff or create your own gift that you know she will love. One of my personal favorite gifts would be to express how special the person is in my life.

Creative Gifts for Sisters

  • Make a scrapbook of the funny and wonderful moments you’ve had together.
  • Come up with a video. Say a personal message to her on the video. Or you can make a slideshow of your favorite photos from childhood to the present.
  • Write a hub as a tribute to honor you sister. Special thanks to Ms Chievous for this request. I believe she is going to write a hub to her sister for her birthday this year. Watch out for that.
  • Design and make your own inspirational book. Tell your sister how special she is by sharing quotes or poems and writing your own message on each page.

Choose from among the quotes, sisters quotes, inspirational quotes about sisters, family quotes to include in your inspirational book. Have fun creating your gift for your sister.

An awesome gift is to tell your sister how fantastic it is to be a family.

“I think people that have a brother or sister don't realize how lucky they are. Sure, they fight a lot, but to know that there's always somebody there, somebody that's family.” -- Trey Parker

“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.”-- Eva Burrows

”We were a strange little band of characters trudging through life sharing diseases and toothpaste, coveting one another's desserts, hiding shampoo, borrowing money, locking each other out of our rooms, inflicting pain and kissing to heal it in the same instant, loving, laughing, defending, and trying to figure out the common thread that bound us all together.” -- Erma Bombeck

“Your family and your love must be cultivated like a garden. Time, effort, and imagination must be summoned constantly to keep any relationship flourishing and growing.” -- Jim Rohn

“The bond that links your true family is not one of blood, but of respect and joy in each other’s life.”—Richard Bach

"Like branches on a tree we grow in different directions yet our roots remain as one. Each of our lives will always be a special part of the other." -Author Unknown

“Feelings of worth flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.” -- Virginia Satir

Gift of Words: Tell your sister how much she means to you.

“Sisters share the scent and smells - the feel of a common childhood.”—Pam Brown

“The best thing about having a sister was that I always had a friend.” --Cali Rae Turner

"There's a special kind of freedom sisters enjoy. Freedom to share innermost thoughts, to ask a favor, to show their true feelings. The freedom to simply be themselves." –Author Unknown

"No one knows better than a sister how we grew up, and who our friends, teachers and favorite toys were. No one knows better than she."—Dale V. Atkins

"Having a sister is like having a best friend you can't get rid of. You know whatever you do, they'll still be there." – Amy Li

“Sisters are blossoms in the garden of life.” --Author Unknown

"Sisters are for sharing laughter and wiping tears."--Unknown

“The desire to be and have a sister is a primitive and profound one that may have everything or nothing to do with the family a woman is born to. It is a desire to know and be known by someone who shares blood and body, history and dreams.” –Elizabeth Fishel

“This is the best feeling ever. Having my sister on the team makes it even better.”—Becky Novacek

Gift of Memories: Recall the funny moments you’ve shared together; the moments when you fought and made up.

“Sisters are always drying their hair. Locked into rooms, alone, they pose at the mirror, shoulders bare, trying this way and that their hair, or fly importunate down the stair to answer the telephone.” – Phyllis McGinle

“If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and want to wring her neck at the same time, then you were probably an only child.” --Linda Sunshine

"My older sister and I both were crazy about drawing. When we were 4 or 5 years old, we were already painting anything we could find." -- Chiqui Ezcurra Muller

“The typewriting machine, when played with expression, is no more annoying than the piano when played by a sister or near relation.” - Oscar Wilde

"We know one another's faults, virtues, catastrophes, mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires, and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar. We have been banded together under pack codes and tribal laws." –Rose Macaulay

"Just because we're sisters under the skin doesn't mean we've got much in common."--Angela Carter

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones." – Unknown

"I can't wait for my little sisters to start dating, because it will really be fun to pick on their boyfriends." --David Gallagher

"I had two sisters, and we would love to get dressed up and pretend that we were chic, sophisticated ladies. And I think that was a great sort of preparation, in a way."--Suzanne Farrell

"Only a sister can compare the sleek body that now exists with the chubby body hidden underneath. Only a sister knows about former pimples, failing math, and underwear kicked under the bed." –Laura Tracy

“I smile because you are my sister. I laugh because there is nothing you can do about it!” -- Author Unknown

Thank you for being there!

Remember those times when she was there for you, when she listened to you and understood you when no one else could.

“A ministering angel shall my sister be.” -- William Shakespeare

“Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other.” -- Carol Saline

“For there is no friend like a sister, in calm or stormy weather, to cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands." --Christina G. Rossetti

"Sisters are different. They heard the sobbing in the darkness. They lived through all your triumphs, all your favorites, all your loves and losses. They have no delusions. They lived with you too long. And so, when you achieve some victory, friends are delighted - but sisters hold your hands in silence and shine with happiness. For they know the cost." –Pam Brown

“To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family grief and joys. We live outside the touch of time.” --Clara Ortega

“A sister shares childhood memories and grown-up dreams.” --Author Unknown

"Our brothers and sisters are there with us from the dawn of our personal stories to the inevitable dusk." –Susan Scarf Merrell

“Both within the family and without, our sisters hold up our mirrors: our images of who we are and of who we can dare to become.” --Elizabeth Fishel

Tell her how much you believe in her and in her dreams. Tell her what an incredible person she is and how much you love her.

“My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” - Oprah Winfrey

“You were born an original. Don't die a copy.”-- John Mason

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
-- Mark Twain

“If you're able to be yourself, then you have no competition. All you have to do is get closer and closer to that essence.” -- Barbara Cook

“Just don't give up trying to do what you really want to do. Where there is love and inspiration, I don't think you can go wrong.” -- Ella Fitzgerald

You have been blessed by a sister and I am sure she has been blessed by you too. Have fun choosing the perfect gift for sisters!

Celebrating the gift of sisters,

Michelle Simtoco

Oh Thank you for this beautiful hub Ripplemaker. I have 7 younger sisters all of whom mean the world to me. We have our good times and not so good. Sometimes others say it better, and this time that is you, you have a beautiful way with words. I will be sharing your hub with them and maybe even trying some of your beautiful suggestions. Your Light Is Shining! Thanks

Hi Emohealer! 7 younger sisters??? Woh! You must be the eldest in the family like me. LOL But I have 3 younger brothers and wished I had a sister in the family. But God has blessed me with truly good friends who are like sisters to me. I know you will be able to express your love to your sisters in a beautiful way Susan. Thank you for your presence. It is a joy to hear from you as always. :)

Hi! Ripplemaker

Pleasure to read your hubs. Today is the festival of rakhi in India. Rakhi is a festival of sister's day. On this day sisters tie a thread with love and affection on brother's wrists and brothers give gifts to sisters.

It is a good coincidence that you thought of publishing gifts to sisters on the same day.

ripplemaker profile image

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi Soumyasrajan! That is so wonderful to hear - festival of rakhi. This is a blessing indeed. Thank you for telling me. May we continue to share the gift of love to our sisters and brothers today and everyday. :)

Michelle, These are fantastic ideas. Giving from the heart is the best gift one can share with a loved one.

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi Beth, that is so true. I remember one time when my best friend gave me an inspirational book with personal messages on it, I was crying the whole time. I felt so appreciated and loved. :-) Thanks for being here.

This was a great inspirational hub, Michelle. Right now, I feel like I'm in my sisters' old bedroom in my family's house: Everything is soft and pastel with a faint smell of baby powder! I gets it beats being in my brothers' room that smelt like gym shorts and a mix of Brut and Old Spice or something like it! I have two older sisters who are very close to me. Reading this reminded me that they aren't far away. Thank you for that, Michelle.

VioletSun 7 years ago from Oregon/ Name: Marie

Michelle: I love the idea of designing and making up an inspirational book, its a great gift for anyone we care about, thanks for this idea! I love my older and only sister; we both have become even closer as our parents died, our older brother and her younger son. Don't want to sound sad, but the fact is we only have each other, and we agreed we are blessed mom raised us to look out for each other and to not be envious. I enjoy her successes as she enjoys mine.

I want you to know that I love to read your hubs- especially when I am not feeling at my best, there is something about the energy of your words that always have a depth even that reaches out and touches the heart.

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi dohn, you are lucky to have sisters. :-) I was smiling as you shared about the different smells. I wonder what my room smells like. Tee hee Yes isn't it good to know that somewhere in this big wide world, you have a family to call your own.

ripplemaker profile image

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi VioletSun, thank you for sharing yourself. Your mom taught you something truly valuable and it is so true, your family is important. It must have been painful losing your parents and your older brother and nephew. And what a blessing through it all, you and your sister have each other.

I appreciate the encouraging words. When I am not at my best, they uplift me too and make me see the beauty of myself and the things I do. Thank you very much.

Your scrapbook idea is perfect! I don't let my foster siblings leave empty handed. Its tough seeing them leave. And emohealer, I feel for you too! I have 5 biological sisters and a brother to keep up with!

ripplemaker profile image

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Hi mayhmong! Wow, you all come from a big family, that must be fun with all its chaos and joy. LOL You have foster siblings too? I know you'd come up with a great scrapbook may. You have such nice ideas.

These quotes are a treasure. I don't have a sister to call my own but one friend is about to celebrate her birthday and she has been a sister to me. I guess I'd share one of the quotes above and send her a message.

Oh how I wish I had a sister! Alas, I am not blessed with one. But I have many friends, who are like sisters to me. I will definitely use some of these terrific quotes in a book I am making for my best friend! Thank you, Michelle. Your hub really made me aware that even though I have no biological sisters, I am sister to all those in my life.

Hooray! Thank You for answering my request it has definitely inspired me for my next hub. You did a really nice job on this one!

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Doodlelyn: We are the same..wishing I have a sister too. :-) And like you grateful to have friends who are like sisters to me. Isn't that simply beautiful?

Ashley Joy: Glad these ideas are something you would want to give your sister. The other option is to buy them their favorite stuff. But every so often a creative personalized gift is unique and wonderful to give and receive. :-)

Ms Chievous: Thanks for the personal request! I enjoyed making this hub. Do email me when your hub is done so I will not miss it for sure. :-) Thanks again.

Oh so sad, I don't have a biological sister, the good thing is I have a lot of friends which I consider as my sisters too. I remember back in highshool that a floral hanky as Christmas/bday gift will do and in college exchanging friendship poems was greater than any material stuff that we received from each other.

ripplemaker profile image

ripplemaker 7 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Charia: Sol, having no biological sisters have its advantages too you know (hehehe) but I also know having a sister has its perks and joys as well. Well, friends as sisters are pretty good to have. We are blessed. ;)

Dottie1 profile image

Dottie1 7 years ago from MA, USA

I have 3 sisters, 1 older and 2 younger! (no brothers) I found a measure of truth which made me laugh in all these quotes you found on sisterhood.

My older sister made a memory book for me which I treasure to this day. It never gets put away and is one of the few things that gets dusted regularly, haha!

As you know Michelle/Ripplemaker, I adopted my younger sisters child when she was just 4 months old and is now in college. I have to say the greatest gift from my sisters is their time and financial support they have given me in the raising of their niece too! Thank you sisters very much, I owe you my life!

And then there is a very special bond between Taurean Sisters who have never met but no less have a sisterly bond, yes that is you Sis Michelle. In appreciation, I thank you dearly and send you lots of love across the miles :)

This an interesting reminds me of my sisters especially now that iam far from home.iam expecting another hub from you and this time,it should be for brothers.what do you think?

Lisa HW profile image

Lisa HW 7 years ago from Massachusetts

Very nice Hub about sisters. I have one sister. The nice thing about a sister isn't so much that she knows to give you a scented candle as a gift - but that she knows which scent you're in the mood for at any given time of year.

As I read this wonderful hub, I felt I little envious of you--imagining the closeness you must share with your sisters. I was quite surprised to read at the end that you have no sisters! I was blessed with 3 sisters but we have allowed ourselves to grow apart. You have given me some ideas and inspiration to hopefully help bring us closer. And I love many of the quotes. These ideas could be used for moms and other special people in our lives as well. Thanks.

ripplemaker 6 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Peggy,it's wonderful to know that we still have "sisters" in the faces of our friends. It's a joy to have this wonderful experience. :) Many thanks for this comment :)

Cheeky Girl, an only child with so much love to give...beautiful words. Thanks :)

I scribble, I grinned at your comment and touched. I visualize for you this closeness you would want to have with your sisters. Yes, thank you for noting that these ideas could be used for other people in our lives... I do these things too for them. Thanks for sharing your heart. :)

Hi Ripplemaker, I have just started following you. That is one of the most touching Hub's I have read. I have 2 girls, they are grown up now and I wish they would become closer to each other. It's hard they are 5 years apart and are very different personalities. I will send them this Hub as a special gift from mom. I am one of 4 sisters myself. I only really write about health & wellness on my Hubs, that is the topic of my website Http:// But I find your Hub's to be healing and inspirational. Perhaps I will touch upon this subject on my own blog on my website. I'll be coming back often:)

ripplemaker profile image

ripplemaker 6 years ago from Cebu, Philippines Author

Top Health Spot: Thank you so much for your inspirational words. I will visit your website as soon as I can. I hope your daughters will love this hub and be closer to each other. Thank you for connecting with me here on Hubpages.

I haven't forgotten this wonderful hub though it has been 5 months since I was first inspired by it. I will return to it again and again for ideas to honor my sisters and other special people in my life. I have written a hub as a tribute to my mom for mother's day. I hope you will check it out, since you helped inspire it! It is called My Extraordinary Mom: A True Story. I hope you like it. God bless!

Susan: Hey, nice to see you. Yes, that will be a great hub to write about. Thanks for the lovely comment. Love and light. :) 5 years ago

What a fantastic hub! I like all the tips that you have given. It's not about material gifts but heart warming gifts such as great memories and showing appreciation and affection.
