Welcome to Kinship, Pittsburgh’s premier destination for locally-sourced gifts.

We specialize in curating high-quality gift boxes featuring a diverse range of locally-made products, from gourmet treats to unique handcrafted items.



    Dedicated to championing social causes in the Pittsburgh area, Kinship actively seeks out brands that align with our commitment to making a positive impact. This ensures that every product in our collection not only reflects quality and thoughtfulness but also contributes to creating positive change within our community. In addition to supporting socially responsible brands, we donate a portion of profits to the ALS Association of Western PA—a cause personally significant to our founder.

    Throughout every stage of our process, we place a priority on eco-conscious choices. This commitment extends from the design of our enduring and high-quality gift boxes to the selection of our packaging and shipping supplies. Our aim is to craft a meaningful experience while keeping our environmental impact to a minimum. Give a gift that not only serves a purpose but also aligns with your values, providing a positive and lasting impact.

    Rooted in our commitment to community and craftsmanship, we prioritize local talent in every aspect of our sourcing process. Whether seeking a product or service, our goal is to find the most local and highest quality solutions available. This approach not only ensures a unique and authentic offering but also contributes significantly to the vitality and sustainability of Pittsburgh and its surrounding areas. It's more than just a commitment; it's a pledge to foster a thriving local ecosystem that we proudly call home.

Meet Lauren Geniviva, the driving force behind Kinship Gifting. With a background in advertising, Lauren discovered her passion for promoting brands aligned with her values and beliefs. However, it was the loss of her father to ALS in 2018 that sparked a profound shift in her career trajectory. Inspired by the unwavering support and compassion of the ALS community in Pittsburgh during her family's difficult journey, Lauren embarked on a quest to create something deeply meaningful and purpose-driven.

At Kinship Gifting, the phrase "Cause Conscious" isn't just a tagline—it's a guiding principle rooted in Lauren's personal experience. Motivated by the sense of kinship and community her family found amidst adversity, Lauren made it her mission to foster similar connections through thoughtful gifting and support for local makers.

Driven by a desire to give back to the ALS community that provided solace during a challenging time, Kinship Gifting pledges to donate a percentage of its profits to research and care initiatives for ALS in Western PA. Through her dedication to nurturing connections and supporting causes close to her heart, Lauren hopes to empower others to experience the profound sense of kinship that brought comfort to her family in their time of need.
