Good gift-giving is an art. The perfect present can lift a mood or improve a relationship. It can reward a job well done, celebrate a milestone, or simply remind a loved one that you care. Whatever the occasion, gift-giving is a social ritual that requires thought and consideration.

Experts say that you should consider the following categories when it comes to your gifting: select something they want, something they need, something to wear, or a special gift. Today we will focus on how giving the gift of Tom James custom clothing is ideal for each of these categories & helps you elevate your gift-giving. 

A Clothing Gift They Want

First, let’s look at the category of something they want. If your spouse, partner, colleague, friend, or family member is a Tom James customer, you already know custom clothing is something they want! At Tom James, we have record of their measurements and purchase history so it’s easy for you to select an item that will compliment your existing wardrobe or their TJ clothier very well may know an item the recipient has on their wish list. Their TJ rep can text you pictures of fabrics to consider, and outfit ideas or you can just give the recipient a TJ gift card and let them select their garment of choice. 

A Custom Clothing Gift They Need

Next, let’s look at the category of something they need. Gifting custom clothes is an excellent choice for a loved one graduating high school or college as they embark on a new arena of life. Attending college brings the opportunity and need for a suit or a nice clothing outfit for making presentations, and attending fraternity/sorority events and internships to name a few. Graduating college brings job interviews, work presentations, invitations to weddings, and other social occasions that require a suit or a polished outfit. A byproduct of gifting custom clothing is the confidence the recipient will feel every time they wear their beautiful clothes. 

The Gift That Always Fits

Next, let’s look at the category of something to wear. Gifting something to wear is quite common but the drawback is not being sure if it will fit or that they will like it. When you gift custom clothing, you can be confident knowing it will fit properly and it shows you acknowledge the recipient's unique personality so that they can select the fabric & style details to suit their taste whether that’s classic or fashion forward.

Custom Clothing is a Special Gift

Lastly, let’s look at the category of a special gift. Gifting something custom-made is special in and of itself! Gifting custom clothing is a wonderful way to reward a job well done or celebrate a significant milestone in a person's life or career. You can also gift a custom jacket with a custom lining that features your business or university logo or personal photos, symbols & colors that are meaningful to you and the recipient. 

A distinctive aspect of gifting Tom James custom clothing is that it’s giving more than just a gift, you’re also gifting an experience! Getting fitted for custom apparel is fun, it’s personal, the recipient will feel special and the experience is completely unique to that person. A Tom James clothier will meet them by appointment in the convenience of their office or home (or they can come to a TJ office if they wish), our clothier will ask them a few questions and guide them in the selection of fabric, details and features to reflect the recipients taste and style.

So whether it’s a Birthday, Anniversary, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Christmas, Hanukkah, Graduation, a Business thank you, a work/sales incentive, or a Milestone celebration, gifting Tom James custom clothing is always in good taste & shows an elevated personal touch.
