gather Holiday Gift Guide

Daisy McClellanComment

Shopping for family and friends can be so stressful, but we're here to make it easier for you. We have gifts for every budget, plus stocking stuffers, experiential gifts and gift cards. 

Trim your tree with SF Mercantile's California bear ornament or one of their San Francisco-themed glass ornaments. 


If you need a jewelry gift, consider our best-selling earrings from Oh, Hello Friend. They're a steal at $18 a pair and come in cute, sometimes cheeky designs like these little pizza slices.

New parents will love our clothing items that come as matching sets for adults and kids (like our papa bear,  mama bear and little bear tees). Our latest gather x Harumi K collection includes several clothing pairs, including this white V-neck dress for mom with matching toddler dress.


If you have a hard time deciding on one gift, let us do the work with one of our themed gift boxes. You will receive 10 percent off everything in the box and we can ship them for you, too. 


If you know someone who could use a little pampering, treat them to some Herbs + Oils bath soaking crystals ($24) or one of their soothing soy candles ($24 each). We also have several varieties of Etta + Billie handcrafted soaps ($12) and their exfoliating mint coffee scrub ($11). And if you want to fill your home with a holiday scent, we have a fresh stock of vanilla and Christmas tree scented candles ($13) from Lighten Up Shoppe. 


Complete your gift with a cute card by Paper Raven. We have Christmas, Hanukkah and general holiday greeting designs.


Need a stocking stuffer? Our Compartes chocolate bars come in a variety of interesting flavors and are boxed and ready to go inside anyone's stocking. Come to the shop to see all the options.


Cuppa Fog just brought us lovely petite SF-themed ornaments that make great gifts at only $10 apiece. 


Can't think of what to get someone? How about gifting one of our workshops? We have several to choose from each month (knitting, candle making and floral arranging are coming up in the New Year). Or you can go with a gift card and let them choose their own gift.

We add new items to the shop all the time, so take advantage of our extended holiday hours (11-7 daily!) to check out everything in person.

Woah- did we have a fun night at the Hayes Valley Holiday Block Party! We loved hosting some of our favorite vendors for a mini pop up. It's always fun to meet the artists and shop an expanded selection of their wares. Such a great way to kick off December! If you missed it, check out our website for holiday gifts or stop by the shop where we are receiving new merchandise everyday!
