You know they’re not bluffing when they say “You can kid the world, but not your sister”. Whether you and your sister are the Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen or the Hillary and Haylie Duff, this Sunday, the 6th of August, is THE DAY to celebrate that special bond you have with sissy on National Sister’s Day.
She could be the most annoying person in the world to you. She wears your wardrobe without even asking you. She misplaces important stuff just when you need it. And even sells you out to Mom and Dad when you sneak out at night.
Whatever the circumstance, there is nothing else compared to a sister’s love. If you haven’t seen each other in a while, make this Sunday a blast. If you’re still stuck with each other, good. Don’t let this day pass by without a big shout out to one of the best people in the world who totally gets you.
We have saved you from trouble with these not-so-conventional yet fun ideas to celebrate Sister’s Day.
Bake Some of Your Favorite Treats
Do you remember that day when you fight over on who gets the last cookie? Sisters somehow share the same interests especially when it comes to baked goods. Dust off your mixer and get ready for some fun and messy day in the kitchen. If you have that special recipe that you’ve been wanting to perfect, this is the time to get it all figured out with each other’s help. And oh, just don’t lick clean that bowl of cookie dough. Okay, you may.
Take A Trip Down To Memory Lane
We’re not going with the traditional one by revisiting some old dusty photo book that Mom has kept for ages. Instead, take a drive or walk and revisit the places that brings a lot of your childhood memories. Go back to that perfect hiding spot or that favorite diner you’d happily eat out together on weekends. That’d be really nostalgic but great.
Spend a Girls’ Relaxing Day
Go out and treat her for a day at the spa to shake off that negativity. Get a mani, pedi and a new hairstyle for that total makeover. Nothing beats a girl’s day out spent on feeling and looking good. You got it girls!
Go on an Adventure
Sisterhood is such a powerful bond. And girls, rather sisters, can rock those adrenaline rush activities like a bad boss. It’s all in the mind, right? Now book an adventure for a day and go ziplining, parasailing, skydiving or whitewater rafting. Whatever it is, make it a heart pumping activity day!
Go to a Local Gig
She could be the most self-absorbed person sometimes, but you know she’s not that bad when it comes to being a sister. You might even share a song or two that you guys still remember by heart. If you both have this thing for music, then have fun by checking out some gigs in your area or if you have some extra budget, go watch a big concert by one of your favorite artists and enjoy the night away.
Shopping Spree for a Day
Shopping is every girl’s therapy.That certain smell of those displayed items on the shelves is totally addictive. What could be better than spending the day at the mall buying new girly stuff? Or you can always shop for vintage collections in flea markets and thrift stores. Who says you need to shed out huge bucks to go shopping while having fun at the same time? Thrift stores also have great finds and that’s where the fun begins -- a race on finding the greatest item of all.
Visit Theme Parks
You might have read those Harry Potter books for the nth time but that total Potter feeling experience on HP themed park is a lifetime treasure. If it sounds exciting, then book some tickets and enjoy a magical experience with your sibling. But it doesn’t need to be the HP world. You can also try other famous theme parks from your favorite movies and delight on some fun rides and bring a home bunch of collectibles.
Be Crafty with Sissy
Let out the creative side in you by getting crafty with sissy. Make some DIY bracelets, necklaces and other wearable stuff that serves as a shout out for your solid sisterhood bond. If you’re bold enough, take on some bigger projects like a customized shoe cabinet for both of you or a classy and chic closet for all your wardrobes.
Swap a Day
Want to know what it really feels like to be a different person for a day? Then look no further and experience how the day goes by in your sister’s life. And since it’s Sunday, you can playfully do it at home and pretend you’ve swapped souls for a day. Mimicking each other’s voice and gestures sounds silly yet super fun. If you both have separate lives already, then agree on certain tasks that the other one can accomplish for you.
National Sister’s Day won’t be complete without some popcorns and movies. As a tribute to this holiday, get those sister flick movies up on the tube from Frozen to 10 Things I Hate About You or The Parent Trap to remind how lucky you are to have each other. Sisters are like the ultimate best friends that anyone could wish for despite that love-hate relationship.
