‘Tis the season of giving. But sometimes, it feels like our clothing gifts are ho-hum. Thanks to wish lists, it’s easy to get people exactly what they want. And hey, there’s nothing wrong with that! But even if you get the must-have-jeans-in-the-must-have-wash-and-the-perfect-size checked off the list, you can still make it special with these jean-ius tips. Keep reading to get inspired by our four favorite ways to gift clothing with personal pizazz for the holidays.
1. The Outfit Bundle
Channel your inner stylist and package your gift as an outfit bundle. Try a sweater, scarf and necklace, shoes and socks or jeans and a belt. BONUS TIP: Wrap them like they would be worn for an impressive unwrapping experience. Not only does it look great, it also lets them see how the whole look works together.
2. Date Night Duds
Adding an experience to a gift is a fun way to extend the gift beyond the day of giving. Wrap up a nice date night outfit such as our Modern Series dark wash jeans, a fresh button-down shirt, cologne and movie or concert tickets. Just add you and you’ll have all the makings of a fantastic night on the town!
3. Get Sentimental with a Little Extra Something
- If you’re gifting jeans to someone who wears them until they wear out, include a repair or patch kit.
- If you’re gifting nice work attire to someone who’s career-focused, slip a little motivational book in the pocket.
- If you’re gifting boots or shoes, add some fun socks that match the recipient’s personality.
- If you’re gifting clothes to a Pinterest fiend, slip a note with a URL to a Pinterest board you created just for them that’s filled with outfit inspirations for their new wardrobe addition.
- If you’re gifting our Curvy Fit or Easy Fit jeans, include instructions in your card to look at the pocket lining. (There’s a special message!)
4. Wrap it in Denim
I love the idea of giving a hint on the outside of a package as to what’s inside. If you’re giving jeans, repurpose the old ones you’re replacing as gift wrap! These denim pom poms look great on brown craft paper for a fun, country-chic look. Best of all, they’re simple and quick to make. We used this tutorial from Zakka Life.
