To our friends who say “this year I’m going to get my holiday gifts done early…” meet our early gift guide.
Yes! Period. Underwear can be given as a gift. And it’s not just any gift - it keeps giving (usually every 28 days) for years. It’s reusable, non toxic, highly absorbent and so comfy. In other words, better than socks.
So who can you give this amazing gift to?!
SOMEONE WHO LOVES TRYING NEW THINGS
This person is always doing the latest exercise class, they have the latest ingredient in their smoothie, and they do the latest lymphatic drainage skincare routine- and now thanks to you, they will have a set of Period Underwear. If they look at you a little oddly after they open their gift, you can tell them it’s the latest advancement in period care and that the tampon (invented by a man, in 1931) is basically an antique. If the innovation of Period. Underwear doesn’t blow their mind, then maybe buy them a Period. Thong.
Yes a Thong that absorbs your flow! Welcome to the future…
SOMEONE WHO’S ALWAYS HAD A BAD TIME WITH THEIR PERIOD
To some people, the idea of anything to do with a period being a gift is insane. We get it. We all know someone who experiences terrible periods - overwhelming flows, leaks and cramps and we feel so much compassion for that ordeal. Maybe the last thing this friend wants to see is a gift with the word ‘Period’ on it, but Period. Underwear is a way of shifting our relationship to our periods, and even shifting our experience. So many of our customers say they can’t believe their new leak-free existence, and they also tell us that they have way less cramps. Then, there’s just something that starts to shift when you start to flow. All we can say is, when you flow, you know.
SOMEONE WHO’S ALWAYS WANTED TO TRY PERIOD. UNDERWEAR
We all have a friend who’s deeply curious about how this actually works, but who hasn’t taken the leap yet. This is the gift to help them do this. You can write in the card some simple ways to make trying this even easier: ‘just wear them at night first of all and think of all the tampon/pad waste you save.’ And ‘you don’t have to give up tampons absolutely, you can alternate between both camps, though pretty soon you’ll be completely hooked on Period. Underwear.’ Wait. That’s a lot of stuff to write, you’ll need a big card.
SOMEONE WHO WANTS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE
If you have a friend or a family member who is always looking for a sustainable solution and something that won’t do any harm to the planet, then this is the gift for them. One pair can last years and years, and save the world from so much tampon/pad waste (which takes centuries to decompose). That’s the practical part. Period. Underwear and Pads
bring with them a really good can-do feeling. Yes, it’s a small thing, but if we change the way the world periods (and we’re doing it!), we can actually change the world.
SOMEONE YOU DON’T KNOW WHO NEEDS A HAND
At The Period Company, we’ve given away over 1 million pairs of underwear to people who need them all over the world. With one in four people unable to access products to absorb their blood, period scarcity is a global problem. Not only in distant places, but here in America too. When bills go up, period products are some of the first items to get struck off the shopping list, leaving so many people without them. And this isn’t just a practical problem. Psychologically, period scarcity brings fear, panic, anxiety, shame and stops women and girls being able to participate fully in their lives. Buy our Community Donation
as a gift and we’ll donate four pairs of Period. via the amazing non profits we worked with to someone who really needs them.
SOMEONE WHO COULD BE YOU?
Sometimes the person who’s buying all the gifts for everyone, needs a little gift themselves. We’ll say two words. Micro. Fiber.
Then we’ll really really really encourage you to treat yourself.
And lastly, some of our favorites are restocking just in time for Black Friday!
Period. Underwear is by far the best ‘gateway period product’ for anyone who is entering the world of periods - they’re easy to use, and just feel like an extra comfy pair of underwear that magically absorbs flows. By giving Period., you’re also doing something really special which is framing their period as something that belongs in the world of gifts. It does!
If they haven’t gotten their period yet, the gift of Period. is a nice way to get them prepared. If they have gotten their period, then watch out pads, because 2023 might be your last time around. One pair fits very neatly in the toe section of the holiday stocking.
THE NEW MOM
New Moms already have the best little gift ever. The postpartum flows that follow giving birth might not quite qualify as ‘a gift.’ Even worse, you’re normally handed a stack of disposable diaper-like underwear to deal with them. Get your new mom friend/family member a small stack of comfy, reliable, super absorbent Period. Underwear and she can breeze through the postpartum flows, feeling secure and most importantly like a vaguely normal person who doesn’t have to deal with any disposable discomfort.
Happy giving! We’ll always swap out sizes if they’re the wrong fit for the recipient and if you need any advice, then reach out to us at email@example.com
