How to Spend Your M.M. Gift Card

Make sure every penny goes toward pieces you’ll wear over and over (and over).

By Madeleine Kim

If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you’re the lucky recipient of an M.M.LaFleur gift card—how exciting! There’s something about shopping with a gift card that’s just so fun. To me, it feels like a guilty pleasure minus the guilt—all the anticipation of getting something new with none of the budget concerns. And to make things even more delicious, I think of gift-card shopping as a bit of a game: How can I optimize my cart to ensure every penny goes toward a piece I’ll wear over and over?

Here’s how I’d make the most of M.M. gift cards ranging from $100 to $1,000.

$100 Gift Card

Stock up on buttery-soft pima-cotton tank tops, like the Cameron and Paige. They make excellent layers underneath your sweaters and blazers, but you can also wear them on their own in the summer. Plus, they’re part of our cost-saving T-shirt bundle, so you can make your gift card go even further.

$250 Gift Card

A turtleneck in a punchy color will go a long way toward making your go-to pants, skirts, and layers feel fresh. For a chic and comfy outfit, pair it with the Georgina loungers, which sneakily combine the look of trousers with the feel of sweatpants.

$500 Gift Card

Get the fine alpaca Frederick cardigan, which is so beloved among M.M. employees, it’s become a punchline. Wear the washable-silk Vicky tank underneath for an elevated vibe.

$750 Gift Card

Start by stocking up on essentials like this surprisingly elegant muscle tee, this soft, jewel-toned top, and these fuzzy work-from-home slippers. You’ll still have plenty of cash left over, so you can treat yourself to the ultra luxurious Lea sweater, made from the best quality cashmere available.

$1000 Gift Card

This calls for a veritable shopping spree. And that means starting with some showstopper pieces, like a sleek silk jersey top, a pair of shimmery shoes, and an on-trend ear cuff. Balance things out with a few versatile favorites, like this cozy pullover, this soft and functional tank top, and these undercover yoga pants.
