At Cherchez La Femme, we like giving gifts way more than we like receiving them (just like 69% of you people out there, according to the National Retail Federation Research & Markets).
This is because, more than anything, we love trying to find a sustainable way to give a thoughtful present to someone, or ourselves.
We’re big advocates for keeping things environmentally friendly, even when looking for a gift. Obviously, there’s the route of buying pre-loved items for your loved ones but in our opinion, the best way to do it is to choose to buy from conscious brands. "The gifting industry" has such a vast number of companies contributing, it’s no surprise that it has a huge impact on our planet. Last year alone, consumers spent $682 billion on presents. This staggering number represents hundreds of thousands of consumers making gifting decisions every day.
Our mission is to be one of those few brands out there that do things mindfully, so you can have your conscience clear when purchasing your next gift from us, that you’re not harming the planet while you do it.
We started this business to demonstrate that it is possible to do things differently. By only producing once you order, we believe that we are preventing over production that inevitably ends up in landfill. We implement this through responsible end-to-end local production and increase consciousness of sustainability & eco-friendliness at every opportunity, through our actions and everything we talk about here on our blog and on social media.
We want to create conversational products that are keepers. Never better expressed than Joan Crawford in the famous quote: "Care for the clothes like the good friends they are".
Our Top Gift Picks
While flowers, cards and fruit baskets may seem like a great gift idea,, we’ve put together a list of products that are useful, mindful and totally stylish. Plus, it’s all made to order!
These unisex cotton socks are perfect for the freezing winter days still ahead of us. We all know that socks and slides are still trending into winter, so why not pick up a pair for yourself or your special someone? Strut your stuff in these unique hand printed designs.
Our favourite pick for Valentine’s? The Spots Print Socks!
There’s nothing better than gifting a warm accessory in the middle of these Winter chills…
Our gloves are made from a soft lycra material which makes it super easy to discreetly pop in your bag or pocket, they have a matt finish on the various prints as well as having an easy grip so that nothing slides out your hands while keeping warm. You can find this accessory in various sizes for men AND women as well as an ambidextrous design to wear your glove on either hand for maximum creativity.
This last month, we’ve been loving the minimal Dot Print Gloves!
If you’re looking at the future, we also have the perfect gift for this year’s Springtime preparations: Our tops.
All our tops are available in the following fabrics, which are lightweight with a bit of stretch: Recycled Jersey, made from post-consumer poly, Tencel Jersey and Cotton. All handmade to order, these t-shirts come in a range of sizes and styles so just get in touch to be sure to order the right one.
This year, we’ll be living like a rock star in our Flame Top!
We can’t wait to see which sustainable accessories you’ll choose. And stay tuned, as we have plenty of other items launching soon that have even a bigger positive impact on our planet and people!
