Gifts For: The "Little" Sister8:57:00 PM
My boyfriend's younger sister has worked on an organic farm for the past 7 months, plays the banjo, and loves all things outdoors. For the "little" sister who dreams of hiking the Appalachian Trail, wants to WWOOF for a summer, or spends most of her time in overalls, I say go for organic, local, or practical gifts. Burt's Bees is probably one of the most popular lip balms on the market. My personal favorite scents are the mango and the peppermint. Another great gift idea is a tote with a funny saying or a pun to take with her to the co-op or farmer's market. For her love of farming and all things green: a wildflower seed packet in beautiful packaging for her garden in the summer. If she wants to bring the outside inside, these adorable plant markers are perfect to label her potted herb plants. A pretty bracelet that is both tough and chic (and it's proceeds go towards nutrition programs). You can't go wrong with a bright pair of gloves that will never get lost in a New England snowstorm. Another staple is a cozy pair of socks to wear all winter with her Bean boots. I love the Rifle Paper Co. Herbs and Spices 2014 calendar. It would be great addition to her dorm room decor. Any tea-lover/animal-lover will adore this adorable mana-tea. And if you're really stuck, get her the most practical piece of clothing you can possibly own: a L.L. Bean flannel.
