If you are thinking of a Christmas gift or a birthday gift, a pashmina shawl is an excellent choice. It may be the perfect Christmas gift but there is one thing wrong with it being given on that day too. It is already half past the winter season. That means that your recipient only has a few days left to brag his or her new pashmina shawl.
To have it given to him a lot earlier than that, why not give it for his birthday instead? People whose birthday falls on autumn through winter are the perfect recipients for such a wonderful gift. Those born in September to October will be delighted with this fashion accessory.
Pashmina – a naturally soft material
The pashmina material is naturally soft coming from the goats where they are produced from. Because it is all skin, you do not have to worry about getting skin irritations.
Unlike commercial fabrics that tend to put too much friction when it meets your skin, a pashmina shawl would not be like that. It can give you a suitable amount of heat with its warming features.
Given the fact that it is soft and thin, it can still give you warmth that other bulky and large thermal clothing will provide you. For that reason, you do not need to wear large uncomfortable jackets just to keep the body warmth in. The cashmere pashmina can be worn even on the coldest of the winter days and still be warm.
Less clothing means more warmth in this aspect. Now you can wear your favorite attire even on an extremely chilly winter day.
Pashmina shawl and socks
If you decided to give a pashmina shawl to your birthday buddy, there is also something you might give as a bonus, a cashmere socks pair. Both will make a great pair as they will do an excellent job in warming the body. And because they are both light in weight, you can even send them through snail mail without having to worry about paying too much. It can fit in a small parcel which is quite cheap depending on what delivery service are you going to trust your package with. Pashmina shawl items can last a decade or so when well taken care of. But remember it will only last if you want to if you take the right procedures of washing it.
Regular cleaning of the gift
The socks will need regular washing, but the pashmina shawl will not. You can wash the pashmina shawl even just once a month or yearly; if it is not that dirty yet. The socks can accumulate dirt more than the shawl, so it should be washed every after use.
So, go ahead and check to see who is going to celebrate their birthday before winter starts. I am one of the people who find it hard to look for the right gift for my friends. With a pashmina shawl, you can never go wrong with it being a birthday gift. It will be very useful to the one you are going to give it to, for a long time!
