About the collection
Gift-giving can be so tricky! It can be hard to know if someone has an item already, if it will be useful, or if it’s something that maybe you like instead of the recipient.
When I choose a gift for someone, I try to focus on their interests or recent big events in their life – did they just move into a new home? Are they always dressed to the nines? Do they love sending videos about cute animals?
I curated this shopping guide with those friends in mind, so whether you are buying a gift for your new neighbor, your favorite animal lover or that pal who was born and raised in the Bay, they’re sure to love it.
