Because she’s more than just your favorite aunt. She’s your best friend. And, well, that one time she bailed you out of jail so you totally owe her.
There’s honestly nothing better than an Aunt. You may call her your “ant” or “auntie” but one thing we can all agree on is how special an aunt actually is. She’s like your mom but, you know, way cooler. And as you get older she becomes your friend and confidant. She’s been there for you pretty much your whole life so make sure to let her know how special she is. By that we mean “use your words.” But when that part is over, you’ll need to buy her a little something. Shop our picks for some great aunt gift ideas this year. Some ideas are more traditional (read: it says ‘aunt’ on it) and others are just great options she’ll love because she rules. Presenting the best gifts for aunts (so far) this year:
