It’s almost time for Christmas! And that means, you may be in a little bit of a rush.  But never fear, the team at KIM+ONO is here to answer all of your questions and help you get those last minute Christmas gifts out the door and to your gift recipient in time for the holiday. We know that gifting to the ones you love isn’t just something you do in passing. You think it through, you’re thoughtful and intentional, and wishing to express much more than just giving someone you love a random gift.

Whenever you can, you choose handcrafted items, with meaning and symbolism, that speak equally to tradition as well as modern aesthetics. You want your gift recipient to feel so very loved whenever they open your gift. It’s not about more stuff, it’s about quality, meaningful pieces that connect you for a lifetime. Well even if you’re in a rush, all of those magical points can be hit with one gift. Just because there are only a few days left until Christmas doesn’t mean your gifts can’t be filled with meaning and intention. You just need a little bit of insider knowledge to make sure everything turns out as perfectly as you imagined. So today in the journal, we’re sharing a few tips for last minute gift ideas that are sure to wow those final few people on your holiday gifting list.

Your Sizing Questions — Answered!

When you find the perfect flower kimono robe for that last person on your holiday gift list, you’ll want to make sure it’s the right size for them. All of our pieces are ‘one size fits most’ with slight variations depending on the style, and then of course we do also have our plus size kimono robes as well. The product page will have all the information you need to determine sizing. On the right hand side of the page, you’ll see a dropdown menu with the word “SIZING”. Under that, you can find the measurements for every piece in both length and width. The measurements for the length account for the length of the piece from the shoulder to the bottom of the hem. The measurement for the width shows how each flower kimono robe will fit in the chest and hips. And remember, every single style will have slightly different measurements — in both length and width — so you’ll want to double check the sizing for every piece on every product page.

To determine the correct sizing for your gift recipient, you’ll need to know if they will fit into the maximum measurements listed on the product page. Our maximum measurements account for each ‘one size fits most’ or plus size kimono robe wrapping comfortably with about two inches of material on each side, give or take. So if the measurements for the piece you’re interested in say it will fit up to 48” in chest and hips, and your hips are 48”, you’ll be able to close the kimono robe with a slight wrap and a couple of inches of material on either side. To get more of an idea of how everything fits from a plus size kimono robe to a short flower kimono robe, you can check the sizing for each of our models here.
