Valentine Gift Guide for Her

Sharon LacayoComment

With Valentine's Day just about a week away we are here to help find the perfect gift for the special lady in your life! Check out our annual Valentine Gift Guide for Her!

We know, we know....sometimes the explosion of hearts this time of year gets a little overwhelming, but how can you resist giving your special someone the Kate tee by preloved? This red and white striped tee is made of bamboo cotton and is embellished with a heart on the pocket made from vintage sweaters, making each t-shirt as unique as the person you are giving the T-shirt to.

Didn't like any of the perfumes that you tried at the department stores? Too synthetic? Problem solved! Treat yourself and your Valentine to a natural perfume making workshop at gather. The instructor discusses the different notes that are put into natural perfumes and you get to decide what combinations you want in your perfume! Each student leaves with a bottle of their own creation.

Jewelry is always a hit on the 14th. We have lots of locally and independently made gems in our cases but our current favorite is our ear climbers from our recent collaboration with Silver Sheep Jewelry. Classic but still cool. 

We love the idea of a bunch of little things to create on great gift. Why not pamper her with one of our Relaxation Gift Boxes? This is sure to be a hit!

Don't forget the little ones. It's almost more fun to celebrate with our kids on Valentine's Day. We love these make your own nail polish kits crafted right here in the bay area. What a fun project to do together!

The finishing touch? The perfect card of course! We love these gold foiled beauties from Sycamore Press. 

Valentine Gift Ideas for Him

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!

Valentine's Gift Guide: For Her

Sally GallerComment

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.

This lovely card from Yellow House Handmade is the finishing touch. $5. Available in store. 


Valentine's Gift Guide: For Him

Sally GallerComment

Valentine's Day is just around the corner but don't worry, we've got you covered! Pop into the shop or browse online and we'll help you'll find the perfect gift. Here are some ideas to get you started:

We think this plaid shirt by Tank Farm & Co ticks all the boxes: cool, cozy, and perfect for layering over tees and under jackets. What's better than buying your guy a shirt that you'll want to borrow yourself? $74. Available in store.

If he loves being outdoors (or is just an adventurer at heart), these 5x7" prints by Small Adventure will bring a smile to his face! They're great for framing and hanging in his home or workplace. $25. Available in store.

All the guys we know love our perfume extracts by L'aromatica. Made from botanical ingredients right here in the Bay Area, the scents are fresh, clean, and long lasting. They're the perfect size for keeping in a washbag or on the go! $30.  Available in a variety of different scents (for guys and girls) in store. 

And don't forget the card. We love this one from new vendor, People I've Loved. It rings so true! $5. Available in store.
