Finding the perfect gift is something we take very seriously at Gather&See. No dodgy smellies or novelty underwear for us. We take pride in seeking out gifts that are unsusal, personal and have a story behind them that we can share with the recipient, a story that we know they will love. So without further ado let us share our very own gift guide for women, men, home and kids. A sprinkling of ethical gift inspiration from Gather&See's in-house elves. Enjoy!
Arguably the hardest of them all. Us girls are a demanding lot. Our advice is keep it simple, go for luxurious and natural materials in muted colours and look for something that will be a real treat that she might not buy herself. This applies to girlfriend, Mum, sister - anyone.
