August 4 is National Sisters Day, an opportunity to celebrate a special sibling or a close friend who just feels like a sister. Whether yours is the closest of bonds or there is a far distance between you, family ties are some of the strongest many of us have outside of marriage and our own children. This day is to celebrate the unique bond of sisterhood. So here are some gift ideas for sisters—those who cared for us, helped us and even shaped us into who we are today. And if the sister you’re celebrating is not connected by blood, we hope you’ll find ideas for a sister-in-law or best friend gift.
My Sister, My Friend figure
This moving Willow Tree® figure is a gift to recognize supportive friendships among women—best friends, sisters, co-workers, neighbors, etc. A Willow Tree figure is a reminder of someone we want to keep close, or a memory we want to touch. Hand-carved figures reveal their expression through body gestures only—a tilt of the head, placement of the hands, a turn of the body. Each piece is designed to be open to interpretation from the viewer. “Willow Tree isn’t so much about the tangible piece. It represents an emotion, or it marks a memory.” –Willow Tree Artist Susan Lordi.
Art Hearts is a curated collection of heart sculptures that offer artistic ways to express love. Each heart features a colorful illustration from a popular DEMDACO artist.

It shows the value of thanks for the important people and things in our life; a gift of gratitude to let loved ones know you care and appreciate them.
