The 2021 Gift Guide

There’s no better present than the kind your giftee will actually use: No pun-plastered coffee mugs that’ll collect dust in the back of a cabinet; no scratchy mitten/scarf sets; no 40 piece eyeshadow vaults in shades they’ll never wear. Practical presents don’t have to be boring, though. There are impossibly luxurious ones out there, and they all happen to be right here. With these picks, delight—and functionality!—is in the details with best-in-class formulas, irresistible scents, and elegant packaging. Ahead, something perfect for everyone, yourself included...


Something Cozy:

Wool & Cashmere Kit, Whites Duo

The ultimate companion to their lush layers—plush cashmere sweaters, thick faux fur throws—our Wool & Cashmere Kit has everything they need to skip the dry cleaner, wash at home, and achieve that straight-from-the-store soft finish. And for that friend whose desk is their bed? Do our Whites Duo. Our brilliance-boosting detergent and chlorine-free brightener will transform even the dingiest sheets into crisp, 5-star hotel bedding.

Something Luxe:

No.723 Laundry Collection, Le Labo Gift Set

Spoil someone special by turning everyday laundry into the sublime, everytime. Our expert washing formulas are infused with fragrances by master perfumers for subtly lingering scents that stick around way past laundry day. No. 723 Collection, with our best-selling Laundry Detergent, Fabric Conditioner, and Fabric Fresh spray, smells just like a sprawling rose garden at dusk, and Le Labo Gift Set is a lavish indulgence, richly scented in the famed perfumehouse’s Santal 33 and Rose 31.

Something Chill:

Isle Duo

That chill friend with a laid back attitude? This Laundry Detergent and Fabric Fresh will actually make them excited to do their laundry thanks to our Isle scent: fresh basil, mint, lime, and watery aquatics will transport them straight to the coast.

Something Sleek:

Steele Canvas Hamper Collection

These chic as all get-out rolling hampers certainly won’t put a damper on their interior decor. Featuring Laundress-exclusive custom folding tabletops, multiple sorting or storage compartments, and a tasteful aesthetic, they’re just as lovely for laundry as they are for stashing random clutter.

Something Home-y:

Home Cleaning Best Sellers Kit

For that person who would rather spend their Sunday doing a deep clean than a boozy brunch, this set has got their name all over it. You won’t find ho-hum home cleaners here, just high-performance, plant-derived ingredients and unforgettable fine fragrances that smell like something between a spa and a freshly-cleaned home.

Something For Wine Lovers:

Stain Removal Essentials - Holiday Edition

They can sip back and relax with this spot-on stain kit: Wine spills on any fabric (even silk and sofas!) won’t stand a chance with these ultra-efficacious solutions. Pair with a bottle of their favorite grape and they’ll be on cloud wine.

Something for Guys:

The Laundress x John Mayer Way Out West Laundry Detergent

Not to play into stereotypes (sorry dudes) but for many guys, laundry is a mystery, so gift him the tools he needs to crack the code. This Laundry Detergent delivers clothes that look, feel, and smell noticeably more beautiful, and our Way Out West Detergent scent is a warm, woodsy blend of neroli, black pepper, and musk, hand-picked by John Mayer himself!

Something for Parents:

New Parent Kit

Made for moms and dads, loved by the whole family: This has everything they need—ultra-gentle, dermatologist-tested formulas, sweet, cuddly scents, and odor-and-stain-squashing ingredients—and nothing they don’t.

Something Chic:

Dry Cleaning Detox Kit

Perfect their party outfits or just their everyday investment pieces with expert-developed, easy-to-use solutions for cleaning and maintaining silk, sequins, velvet, cashmere, and everything in between… straight from their washing machine.

Something Under $50:
Holiday Wash & Stain Bars, Stain Brushes, Build Your Own Bundle

Stocking stuffers, at the ready! All decked out with a festive scent and packaging, our special-edition Wash & Stain Bars work holiday magic on table linen, clothes, and upholstery stains. Pair them with some Stain Brushes for gentle, effective stain removal on any fabric. For finicky friends, BYOB! Our Build Your Own Bundle lets you customize a clean kit just for them: Select the striped Travel Pouch option and fill it with mini fabric care formulas.

Something For a Holiday Host:
Stain Removal Essentials - Holiday Edition, Après Laundry Cream & Hand Soap Duo

For the host who always does the most, the Stain Removal Essentials kit will basically do all the cleanup for her. These solutions work on old and new stains, so she can leave the stain-removal for post-party. And you can’t go wrong with the Après Laundry Cream & Hand Soap Duo. This thoughtful gift looks divine sink-side and lends a nostalgic touch to washing hands with clean laundry notes of lavender, sandalwood, musk, and vanilla.

Something Zen:
Aromatherapy Associates x The Laundress Gift Set

Whether cleaning their house makes them stressed or they’re wellness-obsessed, they’ll love the deluxe Laundress x Aromatherapy Associates Collection for a harmonious clean. It’s mindfully-packed with laundry and home cleaners mixed with essential oils for balancing mind, body, spirit, and home.

Something Beautiful:
Wool & Cashmere Shampoo

Treat that beauty buff to the Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, which not only cleanses knits and woolens with ease (plus washes away makeup smears on collars and cuffs!), but doubles as a cleanser for makeup brushes, sponges, and tools! Link them to our guide here: How-To: Clean Makeup Brushes.

Something Lit:
Artisan Candle, No.723 Candle

Candle-obsessed on your list? Pick a wick scented in our customer-loved, master-perfumer blended laundry scents: Our Artisan Candle is a rich symphony of aromatic herbs and grounding notes of spice and patchouli, while the alluring No. 723 Candle captures the romantic essence of damask rose and warm, spicy guaiacwood. Both of these flickers are hand-poured in small batches in Brooklyn by candle company Joya exclusively for The Laundress.
