10 Beautiful Ways to Celebrate National Sisters Day 2019

National Sisters Day is coming up on Sunday, August 4. Want to celebrate? Here are 10 meaningful ways to tell the women in your life that you love them like sisters.

You might already know that I have 5 sisters by birth and 4 sisters-in-law. Add to those beauties a bevy of friends I'm lucky enough to call my sisters as well, and I've got a lot to celebrate on August 4.


Here are a few ways I'm planning to show the women in my life how much they mean to me on National Sisters Day. I'm hoping you'll find the perfect way to celebrate, too.


1. SUNDAY BRUNCH WITH HER

There must be a reason National Sisters Day always falls on a Sunday, and I'm thinking maybe it's BRUNCH. It's the perfect excuse to gather your sisters and friends and spend a few hours enjoying each other over mimosas/green juices and croissants/vegan bowls. Bonus points if you opt to host everyone at your place. Nothing feels better than hanging with your sisters at home, after all.



2. THANK HER FOR ALL THE HATS SHE WEARS FOR YOU

She'd do anything for you, right? No matter what you need, somehow she's able to come to your rescue, and you love her for that. Right now, I'm crazy about our new LYLAS hats. They're the perfect gift to show your appreciation for all the ways she shows up for you. Every time she puts it on, she'll remember how much you love her.


3. INVITE HER INTO YOUR PACK

When I read this book, I wanted to order a copy for every woman in my life. And truth be told, this is the gift I will be giving to just about everyone on Sisters Day. You should, too. The words shared here are deep, powerful, uniting, and inspiring. You only need one Sunday morning to read this book from beginning to end, but it will change your mindset about what it means to be in a pack forever.



4. SHOW HER HOW SHE LIGHTS UP YOUR LIFE

My sisters and I have a candle-lighting ritual. When we're thinking of each other, we light a candle, take a photo, and share it on our sister text string. It reminds us of the deep and timeless bonds that connect us, no matter where we find ourselves. The LYLAS candle goes one step further and literally spells it out for her. (They smell amazing, too.)



5. DELIVER SOMETHING HOME GROWN

This month, I'm lucky to have tons of hydrangeas blooming in my yard. I plan to fill my extra vases with flowers, add a ribbon and LYLAS tag, and deliver them to my friends nearby. If you don't happen to have flowers blooming, perhaps you've got some fresh herbs or tomatoes you can pass on. This gesture from your heart will be met with so much love and appreciation, I guarantee you.



6. CHARM HER

In my mind, there just isn't an occasion that doesn't merit jewelry. Our LYLAS collection is perfect for this particular holiday, wouldn't you say? I'm really digging our morse code anklets for summer, but our necklaces and bracelets are pretty gorgeous, too. When you order from the LYLAS shop, we always gift package and tag your items for you, so all that's left to do is hand it to her with love.



7. PLANT MONEY AND LUCK IN HER LIFE

Lately, I've been into houseplants in a big way. My mom had the ultimate green thumb, and I'm thinking her spirit's been helping me keep all my new friends thriving. Two super easy houseplants that make great symbolic gifts: a lucky bamboo or a money tree. Neither is expensive, and both bring fantastic energy to the person who's fortunate enough to receive them. Pick up one at your garden shop, and make it even more special by offering it up in a chic planter.


8. SUPPLEMENT HER DAY

Oh, how I love a good supplement! Show her you care about her health and well-being with a super high-quality, clean supplement. Sisters healing sisters, that's what I'm talking about.

9. WEAR IT ON YOUR HEART

Much like my position on jewelry, my feelings about gifts of apparel are unanimously positive on all fronts. Whether it's a cool tee, a scarf, or those leggings you saw her eyeing, there's something out there that will be just right.


Our LYLAS tank looks fabulous on everyone, and is the perfect layering piece for this time of year. You can make it your team uniform!



10. TELL HER

My sisters and I are far-flung. So are many of my closest friends. I want to have brunch with all of them, but I'm not going to be able to swing that. They love when I surprise them with fun gifts, too...and I love it every bit as much when they do this for me. But here's the truth: the most meaningful gift you can offer anyone on any day, and especially on Sisters Day, is the gift of recognition.


Text her and tell her that it's National Sisters Day, that she is in your heart, that you love her like a sister. It's truly a gift to know that you are loved, and that you belong. There's really nothing greater you could do for another person.


I'm wishing you all the most fabulous and joyous National Sisters Day on August 4! Needless to say, I love you all like sisters. Thank you for choosing to be in this beautiful tribe with me.


LYLAS xo,
