I consider that there are three steps within the gift-giving course of: discovering the present, giving the present, and utilizing the present. Whereas discovering the present might look like an important step, I've at all times been extra involved about how the merchandise (that I rigorously chosen, by the way in which) exists within the particular person's life after they obtain it. And I am not shy about texts or calls that start with, "Hey! Have you ever worn the gown I acquired you but?" To keep away from solutions like "Not but," or, "I am saving it for an upcoming occasion," I've began to concentrate on gifting folks with wardrobe staples versus assertion items. Not solely will these items reside of their closets for a very long time, however they're going to function the versatile (and classy) items that they put on on repeat.
This vacation season, I am ready to buy key closet staples from Otrium, an end-of-season digital procuring platform providing members entry to greater than 300 international manufacturers at as much as 75% off. This retailer believes in a future the place all clothes is worn, so it really works with designer manufacturers to record extra end-of-season stock with a view to maintain that clothes from ending up in landfills. Otrium's mission is one I can undoubtedly get behind, and the designer finds are an added bonus. I am speaking stylish slip clothes (I am fascinated with shopping for the one beneath for myself), trench coats, pullover sweaters, and extra. Prepared for a sneak peek at a few of the items my family and friends will unwrap this 12 months? They're ready for you beneath.
