Opt for Upcycled: Sustainable Denim Gifts For The Festive Season!

Updated: Oct 23

Everybody’s favourite time of the year is almost (but finally) here! Yes, we’re talking about the much-awaited festive season, when the air is filled with festive buzz and your days are just an exciting countdown towards the many celebrations due.

But, there’s one aspect of the festive season that we love the most, and that’s the tradition of gifting. A mark of shared love and respect between families, friends and partners, seasonal gifting is a great way to restore bonds and show your loved ones how much you care. When you see your special ones smile at their goodies and watch them use them with joy, there’s nothing more redeeming right?!

If like us, you’re an Earth-loving, conscious shopper, it’s also likely you’ll want to use the same philosophy while buying gifts for your loved ones. However, catering to everyone’s preferences can often pose a challenge when shopping sustainably.

To help you tick this one off your list we’ve curated a list of sustainable, upcycled denim gifts that have something for everyone!

1. Gender-Neutral Everyday Bags If there’s one accessory everyone could do with, it’s a handy bag! Denim is a gender-neutral fabric itself and daily wearable bags made of upcycled denim suit almost all styles. If you prefer shopping for unisex gifts as so or are looking to buy in bulk for a mixed crowd (For example, office gifts for your employees!), these bags are ideal for your list.

PS: If you choose to buy in bulk, we can also customize these to suit your requirements! 2. One for the workaholics: We all have that one friend or family member who LOVES every bit of their job and practically lives at the office right?
