Need a Last Minute Gift? Thrift it!

The holidays are a time of giving. With secret santas, family gift exchanges, and finding the perfect present for a partner or friend- it’s no secret that presents are an important part of the holiday season.

Conscious consumerism for climate change is a growing movement in our communities, and is expected to keep growing. If you aren’t familiar with conscious consumerism, check out our blog for a post on conscious consumerism and why it’s important.

When you shop thrift, you are buying a used item which creates a lower carbon footprint than a brand new item. In addition, you are disrupting the cycle of useable products getting thrown into landfills. By giving items another life, you are preventing landfills from overflowing with useful goods. Thrifting a gift is not only budget-friendly, but a great way to find thoughtful and unique last minute gifts.

Here are some easy ideas to thrift your gift this season!

Vintage Records

Vintage records are great for any vinyl buff or music lover! Records deliver a unique sound found nowhere else. Grabbing a record that speaks to your gift recipient, such as a favorite song, a loved band, or something brand new, can be especially thoughtful.

Used Clothing

Used clothing is not only budget-friendly compared to traditional stores, but it provides an outlet for re-use in a fast fashion industry. A classic sweater, a unique vintage jacket, or a pre-loved bag are all great last minute gifts.

Visibly Sold carries women’s sizes XXS-4X, and men’s sizes S-XXL.

Unique Homegoods

Only at a thrift store can you find a huge selection of vintage, handmade, and modern items in one location. Finding a unique piece that sparks joy in your recipient from a thrift selection is all about thoughtfulness. Think of your recipient’s favorite colors, places, and style.

Books and Media

There is nothing cozier than curling up under a blanket with a good book during the winter. Give the gift of escape with a fantasy novel or learn something new with a history book. With so many to choose from, thrift stores a great place to find the perfect story to gift.

We hope you find the perfect gift this season! Happy holidays from Visibly Sold!
