Memorial Day Shopping at gather

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.

Thanksgiving Hostess Gifts from gather

When Thanksgiving comes around we are reminded how lucky we are to be surrounded by wonderful friends and family. Let gather help you show your gratitude for your clan with our picks for best Thanksgiving hostess gifts. 

The carving knife shouldn’t be the only thing looking sharp in the kitchen. Help the cook look just as fine with this Sutro Tower Apron by local artist, New Skool. Works for men and women. Designed and produced in San Francisco.

Prevent fighting over who gets to sit where around the turkey with these gorgeous Autumn Thicken Place Cards by Paper Raven Co. And nothing beats a handwritten note to express how much you appreciate being a part of the festivities. We love this Pumpkin Spice Latte Card. 

Wait, what smells so good? No, we’re not talking about that yummy meal being cooked in the kitchen. We’re talking about that delicious aroma coming from that Lighten Up Shoppe candle. We love her fig lychee and warm vanilla scents for holiday. Made right here in the bay with soy wax, essential oils, and bamboo wicks. 

Want to mix it up a little? Throw caution to the wind and allow these recipe dice to decide what’s gonna go in the pot. So many combinations! So many possibilities! And so much fun! This is also available in our Foodie Gift Box. Assembled in our shop, this special curated gift box includes a San Francisco themed tea towel, a gourmet chocolate bar by Compartes, a handmade ceramic spoon rest by Whim and Vigor, and a jar of recipe dice. The perfect bundle for your lovely hostess. Let the party begin! Happy Thanksgiving!
