With just a click, shoppers can purchase from 100+ Market vendors and at the same time of hitting “buy now,” they donate to the foundation supporting the merchants, people and community of Pike Place so they’re able to survive the pandemic.

Tokki

Seattle-based Tokki is the go-to option for personal gifting with a purpose.  From curated gift sets that give back and candles that say just the right thing, to a digital tag for custom messages to send gifts from afar wrapped in an eco-friendly reusable bag (perfect for re-gifting) here’s five ways to gift for good with female and Asian owned, Tokki.

  1. Gifts that Give Back. To commemorate Mother’s Day Tokki is debuting a curated collection of gifts sets, including a new Mother’s Day Candle Gift Set Duo and Trio that includes two to three hand-poured, luxury vegan coconut soy wax candles.  Choose from a variety of messages such as, “Here’s to Hugging Again”, “Here’s to Your Unconditional Love” and “Here’s to Your Big Bodacious Heart.” Proceeds support Christy Turlington’s Every Mother Counts and its mission to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother, everywhere with Tokki giving a ten percent donation on purchases made now through May 10.  
  2. Support Asian Owned. May also happens to be Asian Pacific American Heritage Month (APAHM), celebrating the achievements and contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders in the United States.  Asian and female owned, Tokki founder and CEO Jane Park strives to celebrate diversity by featuring gifts mostly from BIPOC and female-owned businesses.
  3. Women Celebrating Women.  Mother’s Day is all about honoring the mother figure in your life, and as a mom herself and a female business owner, Tokki CEO Jane Park is all about celebrating the special women in our lives through gifting. For the new mom, shop the “Mama and Baby Spa Gift Set” that truly has everything the mom in your life needs to take care of herself and her new bundle of joy.  For the mom that loves to cook, shop the “Best Olive Oil in the World and Aged Balsamic Vinegar Gift Set” that’s sure to impress.  And for the moms that just need to relax after this whirlwind of a year, the “Centeredness Gift Set” is just what she needs.
  4. Tokki Says it for You (From Afar). Tokki candles offer the chance to say all the things we can’t put into words like, “Here’s to All That You Do” and  “Everything You Taught Us, and for the mom in the thick of it the “Here’s to Just One #$@& Hour Alone” candle will surely resonate.  With its patented video technology, Tokki offers an opportunity to “show up” from afar with its digital tag for custom messages that can be added to any gift, to create a much-needed connection while we’re physically apart.
  5. Think Green.  Did you know that most gift wrap is not recyclable because it is too thin, too laminated, too saturated, or too sparkly?  Tokki products can arrive in Tokki’s signature, eco-friendly and reusable gift wrap for a personal, and sustainable way to gift.  Tokki CEO Jane Park calls it “the sisterhood of the traveling gift wrap” to encourage re-use, time and time again.
