The Art of Giving: Gifts with Soul

The Art of Giving: Gifts with Soul

The silver-lining of 2020 has been the opportunity to reground and refocus on what is most important- our health, our families, and our home. As we round out the year and head into the holiday season, we seek to give meaningful gifts to those who are most dear. Like you, we appreciate the art of giving gifts; gifts that individuals will hold dear, can use in their daily lives, and that give back to building and improving our communities. 

That’s why we developed our holiday gift boxes. Each box is full of minimalist, handcrafted goods that your loved ones will use and cherish. Like all of our products, our boxes are handmade and ethically produced by small makers, predominantly in Oakland, California. And 10% of every sale goes back to nonprofits in Oakland like Beyond Emancipation, Hack the Hood, and The Crucible. Our gift boxes make gift giving simple for anyone on your list with three unique options:

The Hygge Box: for the at-home-baker

As we spend more time at home we all know someone who recently became a skilled at-home-chef. Our Hygge box (cozy in Danish) is the perfect gift for them. The box contains a number of products including:
