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!

Every girl appreciates receiving a little something from their special someone, so here's a gift guide for inspiration: 

Are you taking her somewhere special for the weekend? For dinner? Consider gifting her this little black dress by Bridge and Burn for date night. Made with textured knit, hem hitting just above the knee and featuring side pockets, this super-comfy dress is easily dressed up or down for any occasion!

Ladies will surely appreciate these stylish and ultra-cozy cocoon wraps by LA designer Bodhi Swag. Easily layered over dresses or jeans and a t-shirt, and suitable to snuggle with on a day in, this piece will surely spend a lot of time out of her closet! Available in store in the displayed two tone black and grey, as well as two other designs: solid grey with pockets and aztec green! 

Selecting a piece of new jewelry is always a safe bet for Valentines Day! Featuring up to twenty different jewelry designers in store, we're sure we can find something to her liking to suit her style. We love this new paper airplane necklace by Ryan Morris! We're also having a special SALE on some selected jewelry, so don't miss out on this rare opportunity! 


Pamper your special lady by pairing some rose or lavender bath salts from Lighten Up Shoppe with our various candle selection! For the ultimate experience, throw in some organic tea from Steep Tea Co. 

Go classic with a twist with this NEW Birthday Cake white chocolate bar from LA company Compartes Chocolatier. Made with three of the finest vanilla and rain sprinkles, this chocolate bar is sure to put a smile on your girl's face, because let's face it, what girl doesn't like sprinkles?

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!
