What We Considered
✓ For a new kind of holiday season
✓ Any relationship status giftables
✓ No fake “I love it’s” here
The holiday season is synonymous with cuffing season— quarantine or no quarantine. When it comes to holiday shopping for your S/O there’s usually two ways it goes: either you wake up in the middle of the night, only to lose the idea the next morning, or put pressure on finding the perfect gift that it is two days before the holiday, so you’re stuck down a very conventional avenue. Since the holidays are going to look a bit different this year, there’s no harm in finding new and improved ideas for gifts— especially when they are all held to the Verticale Value Standards *wink, wink*. So if you found your special someone to spend the next few months (or the end of time) indoors with, take the guesswork out of holiday buying this year.
Spending The Day In Bed
If you’re in the business of making every morning in quarantine a Sunday morning— spending an extra hour or two in bed may be able to increase your endorphins to get through the rest of the day. A few additions to your nightstand can rekindle the flame and fair warning, a customized pillow from Pluto may help you finish out any end of year PTO that you have been meaning to use up.
A Little Extra Something
Looking to do something a little extra to remind your person that they mean the world to you? While these gifts often fall under typical couples’ gifts on paper— do your reading— these picks go beyond conventional with ethical manufacturing processes, local craftsmanship, and a story behind each item you choose. The cherry on top is that all of these styles are timeless, meaning you can keep wearing them year after year, making it easy to remind one another of the best memories together.
Date Night In
We’re leaning into self-care this season. Since quarantine has made it easy to hoard every new tech gadget in the house, let’s opt for the opposite of phone time, quality time. This isn’t just a gift for the holidays, it’s a promise for a fun date night that is enjoyable for both parties involved. Raise a glass to matching face masks, and spark a little competition with an aesthetic puzzle you can show off once it’s complete.
And lastly, you can never go wrong with some sustainably made loungewear. There is no better feeling than unboxing a comfy cozy sweat set (even though we’ve been doing so for the past nine months). Feel good knowing you’re adding some responsible materials that are ethically produced to your S/O’s closet. And now you have something to wear for your next streaming binge.
