Ultimate Guide to Gifting: Week 2

We’re back with Week 2 of Yaguara’s Ultimate Guide to Gifting! Gifting can be hard, and finding quality brands that have high value, product, and customer experience standards can be even harder. This year, we’ve done the gifting research work for you and have gathered an impressive list of companies to shop from that are killing the eCom game, from their online branding to their customer journey ending in an exciting doorstep package. We’ll be featuring a new brand daily and providing weekly roundups throughout the month of December to help with every aspect of your gift-giving needs. Give the gift of quality products and personable brands with these DTC wavemakers:


For the someone who loves snail mail, has a notebook for every occasion, or gets goosebumps every time they walk into a stationery store: Papier is the DTC stationery spot you should check out. Their story: “to help you share yours.” The brand offers a wide selection of notebooks, cards, stationary sets, wall art, and more, all of which are bound to make thank-you notes and office spaces alike shine. Gift a photobook to share memories of a special trip, or opt for a never-fail personalized notebook in a fun print. 


Give the gift of “fine jewelry for every day” for that person who wants high quality pieces, but without the high price tag. Mejuri carries a wide variety of timeless gold and silver staples, ranging from rings to necklaces, and from earrings to necklaces. Shop their Essentials Guide, which includes best-selling staple pieces like the Editor Hoops, or their Trending Guide, which includes the Double Curb Chain Bracelet. Mejuri is also committed to transparency and sustainability with their jewelry materials; with each piece, they strive to reduce their environmental and social impact. Fine, fairly-priced, and mindful jewelry– watch out stockings, Mejuri is coming for you!

Ugly Drinks

Perhaps not the prettiest of gifts, but certainly a refreshing one, Ugly Drinks is a “refreshingly honest” sparking water company that offers a plethora of flavors. From Lemon Lime to Peach, to this month’s flavor, Candy Cane, there’s truly a flavor for everyone’s taste. As customers, Ugly loves how "Yaguara integrates with every software in our tech stack and allows us to visually represent custom and key metrics for our business all in one place." Cheers to Ugly! 

Blanc Creatives

Blanc Creatives is your one-stop-shop for barware, cookware, cutting boards, and kitchen tools– say hello to your newest heirloom kitchenware. The brand fuses “culinary roots with curious creative backgrounds” to creat their pieces. Top picks include barware pieces such as their Cocktail Muddler, their Pro Skillet collection, or wow guests with a charcuterie spread ontop of their Serving Board. For the pro chef or cocktail connoisseur in your life– Blanc Creatives has you covered.
