A Super-Easy Sibling Present That's Meaningful and Awesome, Perfect for Sibling's Day

brother and sister tshirts for gift idea - Fabulistas

Did you guys know this weekend is National Sibling’s Day? Now, I think this whole “days” thing has gotten a bit out-of-control and outside of Donut Day, Coffee Day, Pie Day, Mother’s Day, Cream Puff Day, Ice Cream Sandwich Day, and I Want You to Be Happy Day, my roster is full.Ā But, Sibling’s Day? A day that celebrates those people that make you laugh the hardest and driveĀ you the craziest? Oh, sign me up.

Because here’s the thing about these two. They drive each other nuts (all Bennett has to do is say High School Musical is “stinky” and they’re off), but they are 100%Ā best friends. They take surprisingly good care of each other for their ages, can spend hours together pottering around, and always have each other’s back. I don’t know how muchĀ I’ve had much to do with it, but it’s what I’m most proud of as a parent and I’m more than happy to take full credit.

When I was thinking about how to celebrate Sibling’s Day, I wanted it to be meaningful (not just another random toy) and something thatĀ further bonded them so when theĀ The Talking Shirt sent me these awesome t-shirts,Ā it was like the heavens opened up and handed down the perfect giftĀ – the kids look adorable, the shirts nail the way they feel about each other, and, best of all, the kids get to dress alike without one of them compromising their style. #dreamcometrue

Because I love surprises,Ā I had each of the kids wrap up the other one’s tee, but didn’t tell them they would be getting one also. They’re still little so it was a big shockĀ that they hadĀ matching t-shirtsĀ and how crazy is the world that we both gave each other the same gift?!? What’s next? A bunny that brings us chocolate in the middle of the night?!?

I completely lost my mind and created a downloadable (you can get yours here) for the kids to fill out with five reasons their brother or sister is the coolest. My thought isĀ this is something we’ll do each year as a way to check in and see how their friendship evolves over the years, and, possibly, remind them of the importance of their friendshipĀ if it hits a rough patch.

We have a keepsake, the kids have adorable new shirts to remind them to stop hitting your sister with a pretend hammer because, she’s right, she’s not a wall (close enough), and I got a little reassurance that all the worry and admonishment to love each other is paying off.

I’d say add Sibling’s Day to your calendar because it’s a win all around…
