Give the Gift of Thrift
This holiday season - treat the sustainable shopper in your life to a Thrift Collective gift card!
Thrift Collective gift cards are a great alternative to other gifts for many reasons:
1. They prevent waste from unwanted gifts
2. They put the power in the receiver’s hands
3. They support a great mission

According to ThreadUp, 145 million unwanted gifts are given each year! Shopping for other people can be stressful, especially when it comes to something so personal as clothing. Most returned clothes are not resold, and the waste generated from unwanted e-commerce is astronomical. Gift cards put the purchasing power in the hands of the receiver, helping eliminate return waste.
Shop for something you actually like:
Remember the risk of buying someone the wrong CD? Music is just as personal as clothing, and growing up I was always terrified that I would come across as a total nerd if I bought someone the wrong album as a gift. That is what made the original iTunes gift card so powerful! My gift could go towards songs the receiver actually liked instead of risking it on a CD that might not even be good enough for the glove box.
Clothing is the same way! Why spend $150 on a lime green down jacket if you don’t absolutely know in your heart of hearts that they want to look like a high-vis scarecrow? Gift cards give them the power to make that decision on their own!
Support a good mission
Our clothes are shipped directly from secondhand shops in the PNW and are 100% secondhand. When you buy a piece of clothing on Thrift Collective - you bring new life to something that might have been headed for the landfill, and you support the small business that saw the potential in it.
So this holiday season (or anytime really), give the gift of thrift! You will help eliminate waste, enable a fun online shopping experience, and help our sustainable mission.
