We've created a list of local gifts that your siblings will never want to regift. I think you'll need to prepare your speech for the Best Sibling Ever Award after this one.
Let’s kick things off with the Sibling Mug Set
We think Pier Prints got the sibling hierarchy right. Everyone has a place in the family, let your sibling know what theirs is! Treat yourself to one too to complete the set.
Gifts for Your Brother:
A closet staple like the Kuwalla Tee Thermal Hi-Lo is an easy yes
If you’re looking to gift something useful that he'll love, this thermal is it! Thermals are super great for layering under sweaters, flannels, hoodies...I think you get the point. They’re the perfect basic because the curved hem adds a pop of colour to an outfit, while adding a little warmth.The hi-lo thermal comes in two colours, navy and camel, which are perfect for pushing a picky guy out of his comfort zone. These colours are neutral (so they’ll go with everything) but unique enough to capture interest in an outfit.
I think liking beer is something that all brothers have in common, so you’re gonna wanna buy him a Local Brewery Taster Glass
If he likes to collect beer memorabilia, these are a super unique gift for the beer loving brother in your life! These taster glasses rep some of our favourite local breweries, and we know he’ll be a fan too. Since these are taster glasses, they look like miniature versions of the real thing, and they’re seriously adorable. Add one to his collection!
