DODGEVILLE, Wis. November 19, 2012 –The Christmas countdown is on. With only a few weeks to get ready, time-crunched families will be extra busy celebrating the season, preparing their homes and finding the perfect gifts. To make it easier, Lands’ End today announced it has unveiled the “Official Gift Collection of Christmas” via its catalogs, at landsend.com/gifts and at Lands’ End Shops at Sears®. Holiday shoppers can give with confidence — the collection features gifts carefully curated by price for her, him, boys, girls, baby, home and even the dog, making Lands’ End a one-stop holiday shopping destination.
“We know it’s going to be an extra busy shopping season,” said Michele Donnan Martin, chief merchandising and design officer, Lands’ End. “We also know that nobody wants to give the gift that gets re-gifted. Whether shoppers call, visit us online or in store, we’re prepared to help husbands and wives, aunts and uncles, parents and grandparents – everyone – find the perfect gift.”
“We’ve scrutinized our gift list, making sure we recommend gifts we’d love to give our friends and family,” Donnan Martin said. “Look for everything from down vests and chic reversible down jackets to family sleepwear, cozy throws and luxurious yet affordable cashmere sweaters for the ultimate luxe gift.”
With more than 275 choices for gifts under $25 and 300 choices for gifts between $25-$50 and more, landsend.com/gifts lets holiday shoppers easily find something special to fit their budget. In addition, seven featured shops offer gifts organized by themes – from stocking stuffers to gifts that sparkle and shine.
Make it Personal
There’s something special about a gift with the recipient’s name on it. Whether monogrammed, embroidered, heat stamped or engraved, Lands’ End can make just about any item it sells personal. The “Personalized Gifts” shop features items that can easily be monogrammed, for just $6 an item, in about two or three days. Select from 12 monogram styles and nearly 30 thread colors available to make every gift one of a kind and special. From fine Cashmere Sweaters to gloves and wallets, it’s quite impressive to discover what can take a stitch, stamp or engraving.
Don’t Sweat it
Lands’ End has always been a brand founded in beautiful color and special details and this season – whether for gift giving, dressing or decorating – our designers have gone all out. “We have the perfect pairings for the holiday party and under the tree,” added Donnan Martin, “including beautifully embellished occasion cardigans and dresses, classic and colorful cashmere-lined sheepskin gloves with EZ Touch™ smartphone technology, and whimsical novelty sweaters packed with personality.”
Where the Holidays Come #Together
From Thanksgiving dinner to office parties and Christmas brunch, it’s the time of the year when everyone comes #Together. In recognition of these special relationships, Lands’ End is celebrating with the hashtag, “#Together.” Not only is it a play on social media but also how familial relationships are woven into the fabric of who we are as individuals, as well as a nod to the Lands’ End holiday family plaid used throughout all collections this year.
