Can you hear the jingle bells ring? Welcome to the holidays!
The most wonderful time of the year is upon us again, time for mulled wine, long dark nights and the fresh smell of pine needles. There are many parts of the season to love, but at Neu Nomads, our favorite part of the holidays is gift giving.
There’s always something so special about the act of giving. Thoughtfully choosing an item to wow your loved ones, carefully gift-wrapping and stacking the parcels beneath the tree, seeing their face when you know you’ve got it just right. That’s the ultimate holiday cheer!
This year, we’ve asked the team at Neu Nomads to share what Santa has on his list for their loved ones. We’re sharing our present ideas for all the special women in our lives, and we’re offering up some words of wisdom of our own. So, grab a mince pie and tuck in to this year’s Neu Nomads Holiday Gift Guide for cheer-giving gift inspiration of your own.
First on the gift list are our moms. Gorgeous, kind and elegant, how can we go wrong with a sleek, timeless look for her? She loves shopping for women’s luxury clothing that she can wear and wear and wear, so this year our moms are unwrapping the Kerala Blouse and Palazzo Pants.
Holly from Neu Nomads says her mom is always stylish, “She’s been a style inspiration for me all my life, except for those stripy dungarees she loved in the 90s!” Our moms helped us find our signature style, and now they’ve become style icons of their later years. But Holly’s mum never stops, “From looking after her grandchildren to grabbing brunch on a Saturday afternoon, mom needs something elegant and practical to accommodate her lifestyle.”
With soft, tailored cuts, the Kerala Blouse brings comfort and elegance, yet is simple, practical and has room to move. Perfectly layered under a warm coat in the winter, our signature TENCEL™ is also designed to keep its cool in sunnier climes. Versatile, elegant and sleek, the Kerala Blouse is a mom-staple: perfect for brunch and for chasing after her grandchildren.
Matched with the Wide Leg Palazzo Pants, this is a present we know our mom is going to love. With wide legs to make a striking statement yet a feminine silhouette, these gorgeous pants take mom from Christmas dinner to dancing on the deck of her summer cruise. It’s a gift to last the whole of 2023.
Next wrapped under the tree is the gift we’ve got in store for our business partner.
At Neu Nomads we love the entrepreneurial spirit, and we believe magic is created when women go into business together. Our friendship with our business partners is deep and meaningful, so getting the perfect holiday gift is key. Entrepreneurs need something feminine yet professional, stylish yet practical. This year, our business partner is unwrapping the Karlie Jacket and Allie Ankle Pants.
Relaxed tailoring in the Karlie Jacket goes straight from a meeting to a weekend dinner. Add the Allie Ankle Pants and some stylish boots for a smart first impression on a business meeting. Style the Allie Ankle Pants out with a satin camisole for an evening look, or team the Karlie Jacket with jeans and sneakers for a casual dinner. Our gift to our business partner is as versatile and as professional as them!
Given over a seasonal cocktail (or three!) it’s time for our best friend’s gift.
Gimena’s best friend is sophisticated and cool. “She’s always been there for me, helping me adapt to life in NYC. She’s never out of place, and fits in with any crowd”. Gimena is gifting her best friend the Easy Slip Dress: “relaxed, cool and fun – the Easy Slip Dress reminds me so much of her!”.
A best-seller for years, the Easy Slip Dress is casual cool for any season. Around the holidays we love layering with a chunky knit, boots and statement earrings. In the summer, the Easy Slip Dress is perfect just thrown on. With a cut that flatters and lengthens, and made from signature TENCEL™, this strappy slip is sustainable and chic. The perfect gift for our besties who have it all!

What’s Santa got in store for our sisters? The Celia Blouse of course!
Classic, feminine and soft, the Celia Blouse is great for family dinners or under a blazer for a business meeting. It’s a firm favorite in our sustainable women’s tops collection. Cindy’s sister works in a biochem firm, and needs something professional yet feminine for under her lab coat and around the office. “My sister works so hard, and has to look professional all the time. She doesn’t have time for complex every-day looks, so she loves wardrobe staples that make getting dressed easy”.
Front-buttoned and with a unique high collar, the Celia Blouse is the perfect feminine layer under sharp blazers. Soft, draping TENCEL™ creates feminine curves and movement, and is the perfect complement paired with fitted trousers or jeans.
Our sisters deserve the best, discover the Celia Blouse here.
Beautiful and minimal to let her inner beauty shine through, for our partners it has to be the Essential Shirt Dress.
Neu Nomads team member Katie describes her wife as “minimalist, easy-going and stylish, yet impossible to buy for!” She says her wife has a specific style with timeless forms and in classic colors. That’s why Katie has the Essential Shirt Dress wrapped under the tree ready to give her.
“The Essential Shirt Dress is so easy-going and laid-back. All it needs is a great pair of shoes and some jewelry and it’s a complete look”. This year, they’re taking their postponed honeymoon, so Katie wants a gift that's wearable wherever they are. “A shirt dress looks great with chunky boots and tights in our NYC winter, but also works well over a bikini in the Caribbean”.
With a softly tailored shape, the shirt dress can be as dressed up as you feel. Accessorize with strappy heels and a clutch for a summer date night, or team with an oversized knit and sneakers for a spring day style. The Shirt Dress is a true essential.

That’s Christmas 2022 sorted, so now it’s time to treat ourselves! For this holiday season, while the wind howls outside, there’s nothing better than warming up in the Cotton Cashmere Hoodie and Leggings.
Luxe loungewear for those precious family moments, these sustainable hoodie and leggings are perfect for a cozy Christmas Eve. Throw them on for that early Christmas morning, with little feet coming to wake you and a steaming mug of coffee. We’ll be taking advantage of the slow down, the moments of joy and the special family memories this year, and we’ll be wearing our favorite relaxed pieces to boot.
This holiday season, we’re grateful for every one of our loved ones and the plans we have for the upcoming year. It’s time to take a pause, spread the Christmas cheer and give generously to celebrate those women who impact our lives every day.
So, Happy Holidays, wherever you are this year, and a Happy New Year from all of us at Neu Nomads.
The dappled sun, the shade of unique colonial architecture, the sticky sweet smell of cañoncitos hawked by street vendors, and the cool taste of Argentinian wine. This fall, we’re launching our neu-est collection in the fabulous Buenos Aires, where the streets are filled with infinitely stylish porteños enjoying the most incredible atmosphere in Latin America.
Here at Neu Nomads, we often think of linen as the underdog in the sustainable fabric world. Naturally plant-based, hypoallergenic, and oh-so-cool, organic linen has it all.
