Dieline’s 2023 Holiday Gift Guide; The Brand Merch Edition
by Chloe Gordon on 11/16/2023 | 7 Minute Read
When someone heaps praise on your gifting abilities, it's one of the best compliments you can ever receive. It's right up there next to folks telling you you have it all together or always smell good. There’s something rewarding about knowing what you're gifting is appreciated, especially during the time of the year when everyone is running around like chickens with their heads cut off, trying to keep the turkeys basted, the trees lit, and the family drama to an absolute minimum.
This year, in honor of the influencers declaring November 1st the official start to the holiday season, I've wrapped up thirty gifts from some of the beloved brands that grace our pages. You'll see beautifully designed merch from some of our favorite Dieline stalwarts, like Ghia and Vacation or Super Gay Spirits and Seemore Meats. The brand merch love is real and calling your name.
What's more, we've tailor-made our gift guide to every type of family member or friend to simplify the holiday season. So get your credit cards ready, and check those lists twice.
