Gift Ideas from Bratpack That’ll Make You Gift-Giver of the Year
Now that it’s crunch time, we’ve listed foolproof gift options you can get in one place: Bratpack
The holidays will soon be in full swing, which begs the question: how’s your Christmas shopping going? All done? (In which case, kudos!) Still going? Or not moving at all?
With all the year-ender tasks piling up during these crucial last weeks of December, there’s no shame in admitting to slow-moving progress when it comes to gift shopping, let alone getting to it at the last minute. Time is still of the essence during this brief and supposed relaxing respite. That aside, it’s time to claim it: last-minute Christmas shopping can be done if you move quickly and come equipped with a strategy. And ours happens to include making a sprint to the nearest Bratpack.
For this multi-brand lifestyle store, the Christmas season means they get to present a simple invitation to #HolidayOurWay. For us, on the other hand, it’s a sure-shot Christmas shopping cheat sheet. Ahead, the roundup of foolproof gift ideas that ought to make you a contender for gift-giver of the year.
For the Would-Be Content Creator
Or the one friend with the best visual content so far who’s looking to amp things up in 2020. Bratpack recommends the Polaroid Lab, a digital-to-analog Polaroid photo printer that lets you achieve the Original Polaroid picture format with snaps taken with a smartphone.
For the Loved One Who’s Partial to a Classic
This one’s an oldie but a goodie, which means enduring fast-changing trends is no problem. Bratpack recommends the Dr. Martens Adrian Tassel Loafers that makes effortless off-duty style easy to achieve.
For That One Friend Who Has No Problem Embracing Tita (or Tito)-Hood in All Its Glory
Bratpack recommends the Aroma Botanicals Fragrance Set or Happy Island Soy Candles. But really, who wouldn’t appreciate chic and deliciously scented home essentials?
For the Loved One Whose New Year’s Resolutions Include Staying Hydrated
Bratpack recommends Hydro Flask bottles (because getting those eight glasses of water a day is easier said than done). Not only a sound investment but a great gift idea.
For the Friend with a Body Bag Obsession
Bratpack recommends the Herschel Fifteen Hip Pack: another hands-free accessory and an addition to that growing arsenal of crossbody bags.
For the Special Someone Who Appreciates a Good Cause
Bratpack recommends the Parkland Remy Terra or the Sakroots Crossbody Foldover Bag. Designs are eye-catching, yes, but each bag comes with a story. For one, the Parkland Remy Terra is made of 100% recycled polyester and seven repurposed plastic water bottles, while Sakroots is known to support independent creatives by featuring their original artwork.
For That One Friend Who Knows Nothing About Packing Light
It doesn’t matter where this person’s going. Whether it’s a night out or a quick mall meet-up, they’re armed with whatever they consider essentials––and then some. Bratpack recommends the JanSport Full Pint or Osprey Transporter Zip Tip Pack, so your friend can overpack to his or her heart’s content with a bag that won’t give in.
For the Loved One Who Thinks Accessories Should Be No-Nonsense and Heavy-Duty
Bratpack recommends the Faith and Fearless PVC Pop and PVC Tote: two different carry-all options made of sturdy double-layer nylon. (Plus points for making the liquid-resistant utilitarian tote look so good.)
For the Friend Hoping to Take Packed Lunches Seriously in 2020
Let the chicest, non-lunchbox-looking lunchboxes be part of the motivation. Bratpack recommends the Corkcicle Baldwin Boxer and Adair Crossbody lunch bag. Both are designed to keep food items cool, compact and insulated for hours but are ultra-discreet. Is it a purse? Is it a lunchbox? Is it a bit of both? That’s absolutely your call.
For Your Two Friends Who Happen to Be Dating
You can hit two birds with one stone here. Bratpack recommends the latest MRKT Adams or Fjallraven Vardag packs so that both your friends can try a practical hand at looking coordinated.
