This one is a special holiday shoutout to those who haven't had a break since March and to those who continue to keep the world running smoothly during the pandemic..Let’s show some love this holiday season to the essential workers in our life. Essential workers come in different forms. Some of them may be in health care, some of them supply necessities like food to our communities. Regardless of where they work, they have given us so much with their hard work and dedication to our communities at the risk of their own health. Why not give back? For those fighting among the frontlines such as our doctors, nurses, grocers, or mailmen to name a few, it is possible that they are going to keep grinding during the holidays as well...and unfortunately like some of us, they don’t have the comfort of WFH like we do with our Zoom meetings. If you know any of these essential workers as your loved ones, we’ve curated a guide to gifting our heroes.
One thing to keep in mind is that when our workers come home, they’re often exhausted by the duties of their days. At Brooklyn Cloth, we offer affordable simple, yet thoughtful goodies that you can give to your doormen, postmen, or grocers just to show your appreciation for their services. If you feel like splurging a bit more, (perhaps for any loved ones you know in essential lines of work) we have some picks that offer comfort with style, the perfect clean loungewear to change into after being outside.
Gifting accessories for our heroes is a simple way to show your thoughtfulness this winter. They may be small, but it’s really all about functionality. We believe that style and functions like comfort should come hand in hand...and since the weather has gotten colder, our workers could use an extra pair of gloves or head warmers. Here are some practical items we’ve brainstormed from our catalogue this season:
Gloves are an underrated winter accessory, but for individuals in essential lines of work, they can be incredibly practical. For example, anyone in manual lines of labor who may have hands roughened by work are more vulnerable to cracking or dryness in the cold. These Brooklyn Cloth Embroidered Gloves are affordable, yet pragmatic hand warmers for our hard workers! You can thank us later, but when you purchase a pair of gloves, we also throw an extra one in there in case one of them gets misplaced.
Our beloved beanie is a customer favorite that will keep your head and ears warm this winter. This waffle knit beanie comes in easy to match colors, black marl and olive green, that make for an everyday wearable piece.
Here’s a reusable canvas tote screen printed with iconic graphic elements from NYC, where Brooklyn Cloth was born. This bag can be used to pack necessities for work, but also serve as a green alternative to plastic bags! When our workers go grocery shopping, they can wash and reuse our Brooklyn tote for an unlimited amount of times.
Loungewear is a perfect gifting choice in this situation. One of the best feelings after a long day of work is changing out of dirty work clothes and into a comfortable pair of fresh clothes. And better yet, comfy clothes don't have to mean looking like a bum with our selection. They also make for great outfits for casual weekend. Let's take a look at our favorite gifting pieces for workers:
This one's a weekend favorite because of its dynamic color and pattern, which makes it great for chilling out in style. The Beam Stripe Cozy Fleece Hoodie is all things fun and cozy for a relaxing Saturday or lazy Sunday.
A vibrant hoodie that's inspired by the Northern Lights will be sure to win some smiles as a gift. Did you know that the Northern Lights are available as early as late August? Sadly for those of us that live too down south to be able to view it, here's a quirky alternative that captures the spirit of it.
Simple, but far from plain. This color block hoodie is colorful and perfect to switch into after an exhausting shift. If you are unsure of their favorite color, you have a high probability of landing on one of them correctly with this multicolor hoodie. Make sure to out different color variations in Hunter Green, Purple, and Multicolor!
What other more appropriate thank you gift is there to give than a Thank You LS Tee? For the season of giving, give thanks to our workers with this vibrant long sleeved teeshirt. It's great for layering under our hoodies and denim jackets as well! Thank you, and have a nice day!
We cannot get enough of our twill joggers and neither can our customers. These cotton joggers are versatile for relaxing in, or casually heading out. Anyone who has to wear business casual or any particular uniform during their line of work will want to change into these after hours.
These camo joggers have a very urban feel that are great for walking down the streets. Next to the pockets are our signature Brooklyn embroidery followed by a quote, "this place is a zoo", to signify our #bkfam urban jungle origins.
Last, but not least, you can't go wrong with our polyester true fit Marl Fleece Jogger 2.0. It's simple, but that's the beauty of it because it compliments so easily depending on the top. This pair comes with an elastic drawstring waistband along with zip pockets that make for adjustable and functional wardrobe piece.
