Live Love Studio

Daisy McClellanComment

We love sharing the stories behind the products we carry at gather.  Today we want introduce you to Live Love Studio, a passion project by designer and artist Kate Moore, a native of Tennessee. In 2012, Kate had a hunger to assist those in need in her community. She sought out tangible ways where she could use her abilities as an artist and designer to encourage others to LIVE and to LOVE. To fulfill her hunger, she wanted to feed the hungry. She created Live Love Studio, a paper goods company featuring colorful and whimsical messages of encouragement and love. Live Love Studio’s mission is simple: Buy One | Get One. For each Live Love Studio purchase, a meal is provided to someone in need in East Tennessee Appalachia through Second Harvest Food Bank. Last year 7,000 meals were donated to those in need! Check out some of our favorite Live Love designs below and stop on in the store to shop them and help feed the hungry!

Valentine's Gift Guide: For Him

Melody WangComment

Whether you celebrate Valentine's Day, it is always a fun excuse to give your beau a thoughtful gift to express your love and appreciation for him! 

For the outdoorsy guy, check out these soft, lightweight Tank Farm Flannels, featuring a hidden zipper closure that allows for easy layering.  The perfect shirt for hiking, biking, or everyday wear, it is available in-store in brown, or the new featured blue for $89.

For the hipster who likes to cook or has a green thumb, Makers Kit makes an organic herb growing kit that can be conveniently grown indoors in oh-so popular Mason Jars. Their quick and easy system is almost fail-proof, and who knows, maybe the next time he cooks for you, you'll get a taste of freshly grown basil, cilantro, parsley, or mint!

For the trendy guy, we love these wooden tie bars by McAdams Co. available in store for $26 in three shades: cherry, maple, and walnut. Handcrafted in San Diego, California, these water resistant tie bars are sure to serve both function and style!

For the sweet tooth, we recommend our NEW chocolate bar flavor from Compartes Chocolate, Hazelnut Toast! Made from premium Turkish hazelnuts and handmade toasted bread, this milk chocolate bar is the ultimate combo for the perfect man!

Of course, nothing says it better than a few personal sentiments of your own, so don't forget to choose a card and write a little something. We have a wide selection in store, stop by and we're happy to show you around:
