Valentine Gift Ideas for Him

Daisy McClellanComment

Valentine's Day is just a short 2 weeks away. Have you found a gift for your man slice? We've rounded up our favorite picks at gather. 

We love this minimalist wallet from Kiko. Made of supple vegetable tanned cowhide this gift is a sure winner. L shaped for those who appreciate sophistication through simplicity.

What about one of our mini graphic tees? What guy wouldn't want to rock this one from San Francycle? It features an octopus bike! How cool is that?

What says Valentine's Day more than chocolate? Skip the cheesy drug store hearts and get him something he'll actually love. Our most popular selling chocolate, Donuts & Coffee from LA based Compartes. 

We love our locally made key chains from Krista Tranquilla. Made from different metal, pick the quote or image that best describes your boo. 

Some art to fill the bare walls is always nice. We love the wood block prints from local photographer Cuppa Fog. Pick from a variety of San Francisco landmarks (maybe where you had your first date) in a variety of sizes. Or make it an experience gift and learn the process yourself (and cute couple photos) by snagging two spots to her upcoming workshop

Can't forget the card! We love this one for the outdoorsy guy.  

Happy Valentine's Day!

Have you checked out our Valentine's Gift Guide for him? We're just getting started! Here's a gift guide for the lady in your life:

This Nooworks dress will look so cute on your girl! The perfect dress to see her through the seasons, it's easy to dress up or down and the skirt even has pockets (trust us, guys, we love things with pockets). $109. Available in store.

If she's a bit of a stargazer or enjoys being out in nature, she'll love our beautiful constellation necklaces by Krista Tranquilla. We'll find the perfect piece to complement her style as they're available in different sizes, lengths, and metals. $64-$78. Available online and in store. 

How about a sweet smelling soy candle from Jax Kelly? We think your lady will love the fig and watermelon scent, and there's a piece of rose quartz waiting for her inside (that's the love stone, FYI!). $22. Available in store.
