Memorial Day Shopping at gather

Daisy McClellanComment

School’s…out…for…SUMMER! And what better way to celebrate than to throw a Memorial Day BBQ! For the chef at the grill, have them wear the part by sporting the San Francisco Steak Tee by Studio Oiduts.

And just so the chef doesn’t get their new T-shirt dirty, pair this gift with our Sutro Tower Apron from New Skool!

For the guests, help them pop open a cold one with this California Bear bottle opener. Made in Sacramento by Newton Booth Builds, this piece is made with cherry wood and sticks onto any magnetic surface.

More of a beach gal? We just received some new pieces that transition from a day by the water to a nice dinner out. New from Curator, their classic kaftan is now available in cotton denim. It is comfy enough to wear as a cover-up yet elegant enough to wear as a dress. Wear it over your swimsuit with some sandals as you are lounging on the sand and transition into wedges when it comes time to wine and dine.

And if you are more of T-shirt and shorts gal, these new Shibori shorts by WanderLuxe are perfection. Pair it with a bikini top or your favorite chambray button up you are set to soak in the sun.

And what’s a new outfit without new accessories? Pair it with a sculptural necklace by local artist Sasinun. Made with marble and accents of gold, your friends are going to wonder where you found an accessory that doubles as a piece of art.

Holiday Gift Guide for Him

Daisy McClellanComment

Freaking out because you just realized it’s December and you haven’t crossed any names off your shopping list? No worries! Our annual holiday gift guide for him is here!

What do you get for that special someone in your family who is sooo hard to shop for? Yep, we're talking about Dad. Sometimes you don’t need to get super fancy and realize that Dad just wants a cold beer. But make sure he enjoys his refreshment in style with this 16oz etched pint glass by the uncommon green. Each glass is etched with the streets, neighborhoods, and coordinates of the San Francisco Bay Area. This design is also available as an 11oz rocks glass and pairs well with the California State Slate. Perfect for displaying cheeses and charcuterie while hosting guests.

Don't forget about your brother (or your brother from another mother!) We love our wooden California shaped bottle opener from Newton Booth Build. Each piece is hand cut from either cherry or walnut wood and sticks sturdily to any magnetic surface. 

Isn’t it funny how when we’re kids, we thought getting socks from grandpa and grandma was a form of punishment? Where’s the good stuff? As we grow older, we realize that socks ARE the good stuff! Return the favor by treating them to luxury socks by Little River Sock Mill. Made in Fort Payne, AL, these socks are made with organic cotton and are available in a variety of colors and patterns in both mens and womens sizes. Makes for a great stocking stuffer for the rest of the family, too!

Is it hard to plan things with your husband on Sunday because there is a game on? If you can’t beat them, join them! Show him you have team spirit, too, by giving him this Golden State Tee by Culk. Graphic has a vintage feel and is printed on a super soft cotton/poly/rayon blend tee. Top off this spirited gift with a handmade pennant by Erin of Feed the Fish, Co. Pennants are available in a variety of colors and sayings.

Are you waiting for your boyfriend to make the big move?...to get rid of his old wallet? Ya, I thought so. Surprise him with a new wallet by Tram-Anh Designs. Made in San Jose, Tram-Anh makes their products with recycled bicycle tubes, vinyl banners, and other found materials. Styles range from a more traditional bi-fold to variety of card sleeve options for a sleeker look. So not only are you getting him to use a new wallet, but you are helping him reduce his carbon footprint!

What about your employees or co-workers? Thank them for being awesome this year with our bartender gift box? Who wouldn't want a kit filled with goodies from our makers all about making your own cocktails?

Need more ideas? Stop by the shop anytime from 11-7 thru the holidays and we can help! And stay tuned for our gift guide for her.
