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!

Image Transfer to Wood Workshop: Holiday Edition

Daisy McClellanComment

Join us for our special Holiday Image Transfer to Wood Workshop on Thursday December 8th, 2016 at 7p. 

Our instructor, Chelsea has made a business of transferring her photos on to wood with her company Cuppa Fog for the past 4 1/2 years. We carry her beautiful San Francisco themed pieces in the shop. For this workshop she will  share her secret tips and tricks!

In this class you will use your own photos to make 6 mini wood transfers (2.5 x 3 inches) that are perfect to give as gifts for the holidays or turn into ornaments for your tree.  You can use the same image multiple times (perfect for gift giving to Mom, Grandma, friends, etc) or up to 6 different ones to keep all for yourself...the choice is yours!*

Chelsea each teach you: Wood preparation, image transfer application, removal of paper, distressed-finish techniques, sealant method, and how to apply hardware on the back of your new art. You will complete 3 pieces in class and have 3 to finish at home.

This two hour class also includes wine and snacks and a discount on merchandise in the store that night. No experience needed- all levels welcome!

Purchase your space now!

*We recommend good contrast and high resolution digital files. We advise you to stay away from portraits (people or animal), as they are tougher to make sure the distressing doesn’t happen over important parts like faces. Please email pictures to hello@gathersf.com by Sunday December 4th.
