What Team Armoire is Gifting This Year
There's something special about this time of year. We find ourselves thinking about family, friends and colleagues, and then reflecting on all the women and men that have supported us along our journey or motivated us to take a stance for what we believe in. In the same vein, we hope that these gift ideas inspire you too.
While we'd love for you to gift every woman in your life infinite fashion (and of course we want you to), here's a look at what a few members from the Armoire team are actually gifting to family, friends, and maybe even ourselves this holiday season. Armoire family members, we'd appreciate if you stop reading here – we wouldn't want to ruin your holiday gift surprise.
BLAZIN' A TRAIL
I booked a last minute flight to Denver to surprise my parents before Christmas. My father was diagnosed with Benson's Syndrome last year, and I couldn't imagine a better gift to him.
For my closest girlfriends, I'm gifting them Armoire. These ladies are juggling work, life, and growing families, plus they're always on the go. Armoire is just what they need to stay stylish for all the baby bottles life throws at them.
And a little something for me. I love neckties, and have been looking for just the right one. Lucky for me, I ran into andieanderin. They design one-of-a-kind neckties after the trailblazin' women from the past and present who continually inspire and motivate (pictured above). I met Lisa (aka Erin) and we hit it off, so for you my friends (and your little ones), enjoy 15% off before December 31 using code !HOLIDAYSHOPPING! over at andieanderin.com.

Cashmere + Candles
Who doesn't love cashmere and candles? I think they go perfectly together — especially for my mom. She recently retired (so exciting!), and I wanted to get her something she could wear both around the house and out on the town.
The White + Warren cashmere sweater is the perfect option. She lives in the midwest where the winters are freezing cold, and this piece will keep her warm and thinking of me all winter long. I'm also gifting her the famous Anthropology candle, to me this makes the perfect duo for a cozy and relaxed night in.
If you know women who love cashmere sweaters – Armoire carries a variety of brands like White + Warren (pictured above). Not to mention a membership costs less than one sweater, and you can wear multiple in one season!

FIGHT FOR A CAUSE
Sadly, Hanukkah gifts have been retired in our family. However, since my siblings and I were old enough to voice our opinions, my dad instated the "fight for a cause initiative" in our house. Every year, right after Thanksgiving, everyone in the family chooses a charity(s) to support. We then have to make our case for it (cue the sibling squabble) to decide how much of our "donation funds pot" is allocated to each cause. My parents both are strong believers (and as a result, we all are) in the importance of giving back...as well as in fighting for what you believe in. While you won't see presents around our menorah, you'll find that both the candles and conversation are lit in our household during the holidays.
This year my vote was for the ACLU and National Multiple Sclerosis Society (my good friend has MS), my sister nominated SmileTrain (she's an orthodontist), and my brother's was Big Brothers of Rhode Island (he used the tug on our heart strings as his tool of persuasion).
Fun fact: This year Armoire partnered with over a dozen not-for-profits focused on supporting women and children. Next year we hope to double our contributions.
