Holiday gift-giving is a lovely tradition that can bring joy to both the recipient and the giver. But it can be tough to choose gifts that people will actually like and use. I think we all fear giving people another, “It’s the thought that counts” item that will be cast aside. And asking people what they want can take some of the fun out of surprising someone with something special you picked out.
If these concerns sound familiar to you, you’re in the right place! You can almost never go wrong gifting someone you love a comfy and inspiring hoodie or t-shirt that suits their lifestyle and personality. And the truly cool part about giving someone a BraveHoods gift is that your purchase allows us to gift free shirts to children with cancer and their siblings. We encourage you to tell the gift recipient about our one-to-one model so that they can also get the gift of knowing the impact of their present.
Read on for a few of our recommendations for everyone on your list.
1. For the person who has everything
If there’s someone on your list who really doesn’t need one more thing, you can donate to BraveHoods in their name. This is a great gift for someone whose life has been touched by childhood cancer. For just a $35 donation, we will send two BraveHoods out to kids who need some comfort and joy.
2. For the yoga lover
If someone on your list is yoga obsessed (or just loves stylish, comfy athleisure gear), you can bet that our yoga tunic will be a hit. It is incredibly soft and is long enough to cover the derriere, so it goes perfect with leggings for working out or just running errands.
Your yoga-loving loved ones would also love our mandala design, which comes in t-shirts, hoodies, tank tops and tote bags. The mandala is a traditional east Asian symbol that represents a spiritual journey.
3. For the feisty girls and women in your life
One of our most beloved and popular designs is our shirts that feature the quotes from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, “And though she be but little, she is fierce.” Giving this to a strong woman or girl you know will certainly bring a smile to her face and let her know that you see and appreciate her strength.
4. For the proud LGBTQIA+ person or ally
We love a gift that puts the focus on pride in one’s unique identity. If you have a friend or family member who cares deeply about advocating for equal rights and letting everyone know that love is love, this is a beautiful and thoughtful gift. Our love design features the word in many languages and comes in simple two-tone designs or a bright rainbow design. It’s available as a ladies t-shirt, unisex adult hoodie, ladies hoodie or kid’s hoodie.
5. For parents
It’s hard to go wrong with gifts for babies and kids. But you can really knock it out of the park if the gifts are useful and make mom and dad smile. For these reasons, we love our “Strong like Mom” onesie, t-shirt and hoodie and “Strong like Dad” onesie, t-shirt and hoodie. They are truly fun for the whole family.
6. For the stressed or overwhelmed
That could probably describe a lot of people on your list. Given the last couple years we’ve all been through, it’s pretty much the norm to feel a bit stressed these days. But you likely have a couple people who came to mind immediately when you read that. For those folks, our “Breathe” hoodie or t-shirt provides a good reminder that we all need to take time for ourselves.
If you want to provide a different kind of encouraging message, consider our, “Veni, Vidi, Vici” design, which means, “I came, I saw, I conquered.” This rally cry is available as a kid’s hoodie and adult’s hoodie.
This is just a small sample of the gifts available in the BraveHoods shop. You’re sure to find something there that will suit everyone on your list. And you can feel great knowing that your gifts are actually two gifts in one. Shop the full BraveHoods store now and learn more about how your purchase helps children with cancer.
