Four Traditional, Yet Thoughtful Gifts for the Holiday Season

White cotton pajamas

Sometimes, less is better when it comes to gift giving. This holiday gift giving season, instead of spending hours at the local retailer looking for the perfect commercialized gift, consider something simple and personalized. These simple, yet unique gifts are sure to please those on your gift giving list this year.

Pajama sets
When was the last time you bought pajamas for yourself? For some reason, people do not tend to buy pajama sets for themselves. They wear worn out pants and t shirts with holes. It can be difficult to justify the cost of new pajamas when you never wear them outside of your house. Yet, pajamas can be very comfortable and they can also promote a good night of sleep. You change into your pajamas at night when you intend to relax. All of these reasons make pajamas the perfect holiday gift.

There are also many different types of pajamas so you can personalize your pajama set gift to the person. A simple pair of white cotton pajamas is a good starting point. The higher the thread count, the more comfortable they are going to be. Percale, for example, is any cotton that is woven with a 200 thread count or higher and it will be more durable than a cotton satin of the same thread count. It is also less likely to pill than cotton satin because it has a denser weave. For a unique personalized touch, take the white cotton pajamas set and add in a monogram or embroidered personalization. You can also step away from the traditional white cotton pajamas with a white nightshirt for men or Victorian pajamas for the true historian.

Girls white cotton dresses
Gifting for a little girl can be fun and exciting because you can buy all of the frilly dresses that you might not feel comfortable wearing as an adult. Girl?s white cotton dresses are both comfortable and versatile. Add a monogram to truly please the favorite little girl in your life. Monogramming is a great way to personalize a gift and it has been around for centuries. The hoarding and use of large amounts of household linen became popular around the year 1200 AD, when sheets, tablecloths, and napkins were marked with dark ink to identify their owner. Today, monogramming has extended to pillowcases, pajamas, and even girl?s dresses.

Bedding sets
You can also gift a good night of sleep with a new bedding set. Bedding sets are another item that many people do not replace often enough. Choosing the right material for bedding can promote sleep. For a wonderful gift package idea, consider creating a relaxation gift box that includes white cotton pajamas and a high quality, high thread, new bedding set. If you want, you can also monogram or personalize these items too. Boudoir pillowcases are the perfect gift set for a couple along with matching white cotton pajamas.

Personalized towels
Everyone uses towels. Everyone can always use more towels. Spruce up the traditional towel gift with monogrammed or embroidered hand towels. Start with a base of white towels and add in color with the monogram embroidery. In a 2017 interior design trends survey, more than a third of respondents said they would choose a neutral color palette if redecorating their home. Stay consistent with this neutral color pattern trend with white towels.

Holiday shopping can be difficult for some people. Much of the holiday season is commercialized and the gift options are not very unique or personalized. Monogramming traditional white linen items like pajama sets, bedding sets, and hand towels are the perfect holiday gift that is both useful and thoughtful.
