Once again, we find ourselves in a unique (and downright complicated) holiday season. While it may be a bit more challenging to embrace our loved ones or even get them the perfect gifts on time due to the pandemic and shipping delays, it’s not impossible! And resale is proving to be an incredible way for both brands and shoppers to adapt this season and keep the holiday spirit going.

We pulled together some of our top picks for pre-loved gifts you can feel good giving! Not only is shopping secondhand easier on your wallet, it’s also easier on the planet. Plus, it’s a thoughtful gesture that your loved ones are sure to appreciate.


Explore a stealth lineup of travel-ready backpacks, luggage, and camera-protecting accessories by Peak Design (made by adventurers for adventurers). You can’t go wrong gifting Tradlands’ coveralls, jackets, and other versatile layers crafted from quality fabrics that get even better with wear. And anyone heading for the mountains would love to hit the slopes in a fresh kit by premium ski brand Spyder.

Whether they’re back in the office or need to look business-ready on Zoom, help your nearest and dearest build a wardrobe that’s both corporate and (more importantly) comfortable! We love the chic tops and soft sweaters by Brass, Nora Gardner’s timeless and confident power suits and dresses, and Minaal’s sleek bags and packing cubes that are ideal for everything from work travel to toting a laptop to the office.

Customers are looking to resale platforms for gifts this holiday season.


For many of us these days, the ultimate luxury is feeling cozy. La Ligne’s ultra-soft layers and classic stripes will never go out of style, and it doesn’t get warmer or fuzzier than a Misha & Puff sweater, knit with love by artisans in Peru for babies, kids, and adults alike. For an effortless touch, shop et Tigre’s LA-made dresses and loungewear (cool enough to wear outside the house).

High-quality, secondhand garments make for thoughtful gifts.


What’s better than a secondhand gift? One that’s made sustainably too! For your most discerning eco-conscious loved ones (aka the ones who bring their own utensils everywhere), check out Amour Vert’s eco-friendly, super stylish womenswear. Outerknown’s colorful assortment of flannels, sweats, and their signature Blanket Shirt are guaranteed crowd-pleasers.

Shopping secondhand is a great way to gift responsibly.

Each of Recurate’s brand partners have treasure in their resale platforms, and ’tis the season to go hunting!
