Indoor herb garden
Cooking with fresh herbs is a treat and if your sister likes to use herbs in her recipes she’ll love this idea. There are various types of herb garden products you can order online.

You can include anything you want from fancy soaps, lotions, and natural makeup items to name a few. There are gift basket items made with natural and organic products if you’re worried about giving something that may be too strong or lead to skin irritation. Another idea is a personal grooming kit she can use to enhance her features such as her eyebrows and eyelashes. You can shop around and compare different options or you can get crafty and make a gift basket yourself with items you know she will love.
Cocktail set or hanging cocktail bar
If she likes hosting dinner parties or enjoys a nice drink every now and then at home, consider giving her a unique cocktail set. There are different options to consider and they vary in size. Some cocktail sets are theme-inspired so the glasses may feature a different shape. For example, there is a cocktail set inspired by the science lab with cocktail glasses shaped like science beakers. A hanging cocktail bar is an accessory to hang on the wall. It may hold cocktail glasses while adding a decorative touch to the wall space.
A custom shirt is a fashion piece that never goes out of style.

Offer a gift card where she can choose what to wear to ensure it is what she wants.
Botanical diffuser or scented candles
Help your sister relax at home with a scented candle or botanical diffuser.

They are available in scents featuring the outdoors, sweets and candies, and other conventional options like clean linen or lemon.
Preserved floral arrangement
Giving flowers is a great idea, but sometimes live flowers only survive for so long. A beautiful display of hydrangeas or rainbow roses can be preserved to be enjoyed for months or up to a year. Local florists may provide this option but you can also go online and make special arrangements for delivery. The size of the arrangement can be small or large with many arrangements made in a decorative box for easy display.

Talk about encouraging a night of beauty rest!
