You always want to choose the perfect gift for your loved ones. 2020 has been a difficult year for many of our favorite people. The holiday season is the perfect time to spread some joy with a thoughtful gift.
With this season of giving upon us, we have the chance to support many incredible small businesses that create unique products and provide exceptional services. Many of these businesses have worked harder than ever during the pandemic to ensure that their quality goods can still make their customers’ day. Shopping small this holiday season gives us the opportunity to give back to some of these incredible businesses.
Shopping small is about more than receiving a unique product; you experience the human connection, which is hard to find in a large corporation. Here are some of the top reasons why we love shopping from small businesses.
Personalized Customer Service
When you buy from a small business, you’re connecting with a small team that is passionate about what they do. Whether you reach out with a question about the product or need help picking a gift, you’re connecting with an expert on the product. They’ve likely been involved in multiple steps of the business and they may have even designed the products themselves! You won’t be treated as an order number; you have the chance to create a genuine connection and receive personalized customer service.
At NK IMODE, we saw the opportunity to make women feel their most fabulous and most comfortable in silk lingerie and sleepwear. You can see these features in pieces like the Dylan Urban Silk Chemise – timeless, simple and oh so flattering. This extends to our customer service – we want you to feel confident in your choices and love helping you choose the perfect gift for your loved ones.
Handcrafted details are important to us at NK IMODE. Every single piece is hand sewn by a team of artisans, many of whom have been with us since we launched the brand. Hours of work and effort go into our ‘slow fashion’. The result is a unique silk garment of the highest possible quality, because its what we know people deserve. Each silk piece is made to last for years, meaning your gift will be treasured for years to come.
From the delicate gold hardware on the straps of camisoles and chemises, to intricate lace detailing, it is important to us to give every garment that unique touch. Every woman is one-of-a-kind – why would she want the same sleepwear as everyone else? Handcrafted details give her the opportunity to express her personal style in the utmost comfort. We especially love the lace details on the alluring Natasha Lace Kimono.
The Impact of Your Gift
Choosing to shop from a small business can have a big impact. You’re positively impacting the team that runs the business; the money that you spend goes directly towards the business’ prosperity. This prosperity can help to sustain local communities. Profits may go towards growing the business, which creates jobs. Many small businesses also contribute to charitable initiatives, meaning your gift could contribute to donations for incredible causes. When a small business begins to grow, it can also inspire other people to start their own businesses.
This year, we’ve learned the power of us coming together. When we shop from small businesses, we can create growth and strengthen communities.
Aligned with Your Values
When you shop with a small business, you have the opportunity to purchase from brands that are committed to the values that you – and the lucky recipient of your gift – really care about. At NK IMODE, we believe in empowering women to feel their best in their skin. We are a brand that celebrates individuality and believes that every person deserves to feel beautiful every single day. It brings us joy to see our products worn by strong women, who realize that they deserve garments that celebrate what makes them unique.
Many small businesses have shifted to focus on creating products that are not only beautiful or useful but made sustainably. At NK IMODE, sustainability is of the utmost importance. Not only is silk one of the most luxurious fabrics to feel on your skin, but it is biodegradable. This means our gorgeous garments won’t leave any mark on this earth beyond how good they make someone feel when you wear it. The majority of our products are limited runs, as we don’t want to create unnecessary waste in over production.
Our designs are timeless and meant to be enjoyed for more than one season. Garments like the Mischa Boudoir Hi-Lo Chemise are an indulgence for every day, all year round. We also hold our family-owned factories to the highest of standards, making sure our workers’ lives are as high-quality as the products that they produce.
Share the Love with a Gift from a Small Business
The benefits of purchasing a gift from a small business will last throughout the year. You have the opportunity to receive personalized customer service, which will help you find the most thoughtful gift. The hard work that goes into refining every single detail will make your gift stand out. You’ll be contributing to the growth of a business that aligns with your values, while investing in the small business economy.
