Gift Ideas from the Makers of HATCH Our crew on their gift-giving picks this season.

When it comes to the inner workings of HATCH HQ, there’s a lot of personal style to go around. So we polled some of our very own on what they’re giving this season. The result? A kooky, funky and eclectically cool assortment of gifts we’d be super psyched to get. Read on.

Name: Chloe Guss
PD + Production Consultant
Gift: Patchwork Quilted Pouf
Who It’s For:

“This is a period of time when we are spending an unprecedented amount of time at home so I wanted to give a gift that makes home feel cozier, warmer, and more comfortable. These poufs are each one of a king and made from 100% fabric scraps. They are inspired by traditional artisan made Nigerian floor pillows. They would also make a great dog bed. I think now more than ever is also a time to invest in and support small businesses and artists – and this product does both!”

Holiday Classic Candle & Diffuser Set
Who It’s For:
My high school best friend

“My best friend has two dogs, lives in a small apartment and is obsessed with Christmas! She is always buying candles and hasn’t found a diffuser she loves yet. This is the perfect combination of all the things she already loves!”

Name: Ivy Lee
Product Development Coordinator
The Blueland x Reformation Routine Clean Kit
Who It’s For: My best friend

“My best friend and I have been trying to keep each other accountable to do our part in how we consume and create waste in our world! We’ve both been eyeing Blueland products, but this new collaboration between Reformation and Blueland is a great excuse to try out the product with their limited edition scent, Pretty Earthy.”

Name: Chelsea Bouligny
Title: Senior Brand Marketing Manager
Gift: Kitchenaid Stand Mixer
Who It’s For:
My favorite foodies

“I love to cook and bake. This appliance does it all, mixes all kinds of doughs, pasta and more. The possibilities are endless!”

Name: Nikki Millman
Vice President of Community & Events
Power Beats Headphones
Who It’s For: My husband

“Since Evan can’t go to the gym right now in person due to Covid, he has been super flexible with exercising in our apartment via the Peloton app and running in the park. He LOVES a gadget and these headphones make it easy and hands-free.”

Name: Katherine Cabe
Senior Marketing Manager, Email + CRM
Window Garden Aquaphoric Herb Garden Tub
Who It’s For: My mom!

“During quarantine, my mom’s gotten super into gardening, we’re talking fully re-landscaped driveway, tomato plants in the backyard, and new flowering plants too. But by far her favorite endeavor has been her herb garden. With it getting colder, I want to give her something to help bring the herbs inside with as little manual upkeep as possible. It’s self-watering and easy to use so she can have fresh herbs throughout the winter. PS: My sister who’s quarantine hobby was cooking is probably getting one too!”

Name: Curran Feinblatt 
Title: Executive Assistant
Gift: Otherland Candle
Who it’s For: Literally Everyone on your list 

” Because candles make everything better! Chic and beautiful room filling scents with the cutest customizable packaging. With so many of us working from home I love to light a candle to signify the end of my workday as a way to relax and unwind. These candles are paraben and toxin free. You will also be supporting a female run small business which is so important in these times.”

Name: Briana Hess
Graphic Designer
Fun Swag from The Parks Project
Who it’s For:
My brother, the nature lover

“A little bit of advocacy, a little bit of contribution toward the preservation of our National Parks and a lot of cool designed, unique gifts. From cool tees designed with hand made prints to candles or coffee cups that connect you to the great outdoors, there’s a gift for everyone here. Plus who doesn’t love to give back!”

Name: Vadim Grinberg
Vice President, Digital
OXO Burr Grinder from Trade Coffee
Who It’s For:
A friend of mine who owns a coffee shop but keeps putting off buying himself a new small burr grinder

“Burr grinding is the way to go for consistent grain size at a ton of grind settings (think espresso to french press) and is the biggest level-up you can give to your coffee after deciding to buy whole bean, regardless of what coffee you buy. My friend is constantly running around between his businesses and almost never does things for himself.”

Name: Ali Landorf
Senior Print + Textile Designer
Pendelton Oversized Jacquard Towel
Who it’s For:
My husband

“My husband recently decided winter in New York was a good time to learn how to surf. He has been driving to Rockaway 2-3 mornings a week. So far it hasn’t been too cold, but he’s going to need something warmer than our shrunken bath towels when the temperature dips below 50 degrees. This Pendelton towel will not only keep him warm, but it will look nice in our linen closet.”

Name: Tisha Chase 
Associate Director of Retail 
CBD starter kit, including all of the goodies from rollerball, CBD Pen, and soap. 
Who It’s For:
My grandmother 

“Mama Marta has fibromyalgia and she swears by CBD tincture and rubs. This luxe set will have her covered in every area and give her the ability to plant her veggies with no interruptions of hand pain.”

Name: Cheyenne Arnold
Social Media + Content Manager 
Tundra Plates by Salamat Ceramics
Who it’s For:
My roommate! Which means they’re also for me, too — whoops. 

“Why have normal plates when you can have fun plates, ya know? Megan loves hosting and these will be such an interesting addition to our table. Added bonus: Salamat Ceramics is a one woman show run out of LA, so by purchasing these, I’m supporting a small (or more accurately: tiny) woman-owned business.”
