We all know finding the right gift can be stressful and difficult. We spend hours browsing at the mall, still coming back empty handed, or skimming through pages and pages of products online — so frustrating!
As we make the gifting experience easier, we have adopted the philosophy of practical and functional gifting. Now, this doesn’t mean we want you to buy a dishwasher for your friend moving into a new home, or an $800 stroller for your expecting best friend. It just means, we don’t want you buying gifts that are going to sit around in a drawer for the next 20 years!
To us, functional and practical gifting means finding products that are useful or consumable in their day-to-day life. But practical doesn’t mean boring! We look for products that are functional, but with a modern and elevated twist.
One of our favorite products that truly embodies this are the screen cleansing wipes from Well-Kept. We all need to keep our phones clean, but no one wants to walk around with a pack of 50 Windex wipes in their bag. Well-Kept has elevated this sensible product by packaging the wipes in a chic, compact way — easy to throw in any bag and take on the go.
For the frequent flyer, we are loving the Bamboo Charcoal Toothbrushes from Gentlemen’s Hardware and the sleek tin of natural mints from Simply Gum. They’re modern, well-designed and perfectly useful products for that friend who is always catching a red eye to the other coast.
The products we love and look for when curating our gift boxes are those that say, “I’m thinking of you and I appreciate you.” At the end of the day, our gifts are meant to be thoughtful gestures, strengthening your relationships and putting a smile on someone’s face.
