The Gathered Gifts Story
Gathered Gifts is an online destination celebrating the stories and products of modern families honoring their traditions, new and old.
Celebration is at the core of our offerings— in our products and the stories we share. We seek to find ways to honor your heritage with updated products that reflect a diverse, modern aesthetic for every occasion that’s important to you. And in this day and age, we also think it's important to celebrate our roots, our families and our shared values, even if we have different ways of honoring our traditions.
How It All Began
Finding a gift for a friend’s wedding shouldn’t be too hard, right? For one stylish, dear friend, we had some major trouble finding a modern, design-forward red envelope for a traditional cash gift. After searching the corners of the inter-webs for a high quality red envelope that didn’t look ridiculous or cheesy, we pounded the table, knocked over a coffee and demanded something better (and easier to find). For a gift this special, we wanted—no, we needed—a product that honored this Chinese tradition, but had the aesthetic that felt like ours, instead of our mother’s and grandmother’s.
This Logo of Ours
The Gathered Gifts logo showcases a modern take on the Chinese “good luck” knot. The interwoven lines forming the knot pattern represent the connected stories and traditions that Gathered Gifts aims to honor through its products. Furthermore, the continuity of the lines underscore the connections and lineage within families and at the core of celebrated traditions. (Also: Do you see hearts? We do too. <3)
