Ultimate Guide to Gifting: Week 5

We’re back with Week 5, the final week 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:


“Dear parents, you’ve got this,” says LALO. The modern baby and toddler brand has products for a parent’s everyday. Founded by two dads, LALO is dedicated to producing thoughtfully designed products that are non-toxic and look good in any space. Shop The Daily Stroller and Accessory Kit, or gift The Chair and The Play Kit– the sleek baby and kid care that children will love to use, and that parents will love to look at. 

Pendragon x Converted Closet

A sustainable, fashionable match made in heaven: Converted Closet and Pendragon have joined forces to create a chic collection of belts. Converted Closet founder Kate McGuire notes that "belts are the most powerful tool in our closet– they can transform our look, our outfits, and how we feel when we wear them.” The collaboration’s Toolbelts; The Nailset, The Tape Measure, The Hammer, and The Wrench; are composed of organic certified leather, handmade in England, and have a lifetime free repair and reconditioning service. 

Good Stock

The weather outside is frightful– so eat some soup. Good Stock is a modern soup company “doing things the old fashioned way.” Simply select a few, or choose from one of their curated picks, open the insulated package, and reheat, or store in the fridge or freezer for later. Choose between their best-selling Carrot Ginger and Roasted Tomato, or their Pumpkin and Green Curry and their Butternut Squash. 


According to Italic, “retail is about to change for good,” and that starts with labels, or lack thereof. The retailer sells luxury products, such as cashmere sweaters, leather goods, down coats, home goods, and more– all at a fraction of the typical luxury retail cost. Gift their Waverly Long Puffer, Walker Slim Briefcase, Champagne Glasses, or their Stride Atheltic Shorts. DTC retail that makes their luxury products literally direct-to-consumer? Count us in. 

That’s a wrap! Stay tuned for the complete gift guide, which releases tomorrow! In the meantime, check out our Instagram Gift Guide Highlight.
