Though you may care for your sister all year round, but during such a festival you get the opportunity to show some extra affection. Sisters are special gifts that god has given us, and so Kwanzaa gifts for sisters should also be special like them. One such special gift is a lovely bouquet of season blooms, because flowers always portray a message of love and warmth. A photo frame is also a good gift maybe with your sister’s childhood photograph in it. Another memorable Kwanzaa gift for sisters would be a photo collage, with snaps of all the good times you had together.
If your sister is addicted to music, then gifting her with some albums containing modern African songs is a good option. Kwanzaa gifts for sisters may vary according to age. If it is your younger sister, you can always encourage her to learn more about her culture and heritage, by gifting her VCD’s containing the history and origin of this festival or biographies of famous African American leaders.
Since, Christmas is also celebrated almost at the same time of the year; you can gift your kid sister Christmas tree ornaments, that also correspond with the seven symbols of the Kwanzaa. Younger sisters can be given family Kwanzaa scrapbook, containing the values of Kwanzaa, and your family activities performed during this festival. This will help her to understand and respect her family values.
Kwanzaa gifts for sisters can also include cakes, home made cookies and pastries. These can be packed in gourmet gift baskets, with decorative ribbons and flowers. For elder or married sisters, gifts have to look a bit more elegant and useful. You can present your elder sister with art and craft gifts, sculptures of African origin, or decorative items and pottery. A meaningful poem on your sister can also be a very emotional and creative Kwanzaa gift for sisters.
Ornaments are also an appropriate gift for sisters. If you can get her name or initials inscribed on it, then it will be an added advantage. Coffee mugs with a touching message for your sister inscribed on it will also make for an ideal and memorable gift. If your sister is fond of shopping, then a shopping or grocery bag with African prints will be very useful for her.
There can be various Kwanzaa gifts for sisters, and choices are plenty, but the ideal gift for her would be something according to her taste, preference and usefulness. After all a sister is also a best friend.
