Your Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays are upon us which means spending time with family, cozying up to some hot apple cider by the fire, ice skating until your cheeks go red and Elf on in the background. While it is a time of a lot of joy and happiness, it can bring on stress with the pressure of getting the right gift. As we get older, material gifts seem more of a nuisance than a pleasure, however we love the feeling of sharing with others things we know they need and things you know they’d love. Here is the our edit of the official ODM/ODC gift guide… from cozy sweaters to experience getaways and reusable cutlery, we’ve got everyone on your list covered and you can ensure everything we recommend is timeless and ethical. And if you're going to skip the presents this year (good idea!), we've got a little something to recommend for the person who seems to have everything too!

Renting Is The New Black

The holiday social season is upon us!  Your calendars are likely filling up with good times with good friends! As I looked over my plans for the next few weeks, I started to think about what I'd wear.  At the same time, I received an email from Rent The Runway, offering a special deal on their unlimited monthly membership.  For $159/month (with $80 off for November & December) you get unlimited access to outfits, from cocktail dresses to motorcycle jackets, all delivered and dry-cleaned for free.  

You can order up to 4 outfits at a time and keep them as long as you want.  When you want something new, just return them and order more.  Most have the option to buy if you really fall in love. My daughter and co-founder, Brittany Bergmeister, is a big fan of Rent The Runway and has modelled for them in the past.  She loves the sustainability of renting and re-using clothes that you might only wear a couple of times.  I decided to give it a try! I ordered on Saturday and am expecting delivery just in time for Thanksgiving.  I'll let you know how it goes! Happy Holidays!
