Nikon 1 ($446.95) Sure, your sis can’t stay off her phone. But you can at least try to break her Instagram habit with this sleek camera. Service Photo, 3838 Falls Road, (410) 235-6200,



Nikkuu necklace ($38) Even you have enough fashion sense to know that this will look great. Hunting Ground, 3649 Falls Road, (410) 243-0789,



Organic face primer ($56 ) Come on, she’s your sister—you don’t want her putting chemical crud on her face. Go organic with this local company. Check out their other products too.



A.J. Morgan Sunglasses ($13) You might even want to pick up a pair of these for yourself. That way, you and sis will both look fly as you try to hide your red eyes from your parents after your “walk in the woods.” In the Details, 813 W. 36th St., (410) 889-0380,



Amanda C. Johnson lampshade ($80) Lampshades are a perfect medium for art. But instead of letting her stoner “artist” boyfriend fingerpaint on that thing she got at Goodwill, get her this. She’ll think of you whenever the light is on. BMA store, Baltimore Museum of Art, 10 Art Museum Drive, (443) 573-1844,



Metal knuckle clutch ($48) You can’t always protect your sis. And, you know, now that she’s all grown up, she’s pretty badass. So is this purse. Just let someone try to snatch it. Pow! Cupcake, 813 S. Broadway, (410) 522-0941,



Ring ($24) The sleek gold curve and shining ruby are beautiful and elegant—just like the woman that your sister has become. Show her what you think. Cupcake, 813 S. Broadway, (410) 522-0941,



Betmar wool hat ($36) This hat definitely has the grandma-chic that all the young blue-haired bloggers have been going for, while remaining timelessly cool. Hats in the Belfry, 813 S. Broadway, (410) 342-7480,


Wooden Ships cowl ($94) The perfect gift for climate change. Sis might not be political, but she hates the cold and, especially if she still lives in New York, she’d better start getting used to it. Babe Boutique, 1716 Aliceanna St., (410) 244-5114,


Classic Hardware metal personal case ($36) This cool little case is the perfect place to stash a few tampons and a joint or two. Babe Boutique, 1716 Aliceanna St., (410) 244-5114,



Urban Express clutch ($45.95) She can never have too many classy clutches. Doubledutch Boutique, 3616 Falls Road, (410) 554-0055,



Pan Am bag ($45) More like the original classy airline than the show (remember that? It was on a couple weeks?) that tried to rip its style. Katwalk Boutique, 1709 Aliceanna St., (410) 669-0600



Issa sequin beret ($124) Tired of hearing about all her lost hats? This one is dope and it shimmers. She’ll never lose it—but all her friends will want to steal it. Katwalk Boutique, 1709 Aliceanna St., (410) 669-0660



Spikes and Lips bracelets ($10 ea.) These are wicked, sexy, and tough. Lips and spikes. Enough said. Pink Label Studio, 815 N. Charles St., (443) 415-2012



Cult T-shirt ($30) Some of Baltimore’s best underground fashion. Cult Clothing, 817 N. Charles St., (443) 637-2858,
