Valentines and Fox

This morning I was honored with the great pleasure of being on Fox 11 with Rachel Manek! What fun, I hadn't been in the studio before. I added a link below to share.


And with that, Valentines Day is just around the corner! We have so many wonderful gift ideas for your special someone. Whether you are looking for ceramic flatware for your kitchen, funky, modern fused glass dishes or one of a kind jewelry that is just as unique as you are, we have you covered! Remember, free gift wrapping with your purchases! 

The Gift Itself closing early

Today (New Years Eve), The Gift Itself will be closing at 3:00 and we will remain closed tomorrow in observance of New Year's Day!! We will be sure to raise a glass to all you wonderful customers out there and we wish you all a happy and prosperous start of your 2014!!

It's the Official Start of the Holiday Season!

I hope everyone had a wonderful start to their holiday season yesterday. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year, second only to Christmas Eve. As the days get shorter and colder, it feels even better than normal to share a drink and eat some fantastic food with family and friends. The Broadway District is beautifully lit up with lights on all the trees and lots of businesses have beautiful holiday window displays- it has the effect of making you feel warm inside even when the temperature is in the teens.

To sum up, the holidays are a wonderful time to reflect on your life. I'm grateful for my family, my friends, and my community. I'm grateful for my wonderful job where I get to work in a unique little shop in a beautiful building that's situated in a wonderful part of town, and I'm grateful for the outpour of support we've gotten from the people of our community over the past 20 years. So here's to all of you- without you, we would not be able to make our dreams come true!

We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, and wishing you all a wonderful start to the holiday season! If you're looking for a unique Christmas gift, as always we hope you'll stop in and see us! We're starting our holiday hours this week, which means we will be open until 9 on Fridays and Saturdays!  


Come Celebrate With Us!

As promised, we will be throwing a party to celebrate Rachel's one year anniversary as new owner of The Gift Itself! As our customers are the people to whom we owe our continued success, we would like to invite you all to join us on November 22 from 5 to 9 for refreshments and good conversation!

During the party, the annual lighting ceremony on Broadway will also be taking place, so there will be lots of fun activities for everyone of all ages, so bring the family down to the district and engage in the festivities!! Santa Claus will be making an appearance, there is live music, and (my personal favorite) there are carriage rides! This event is always a good time, and the normally beautiful Broadway District will look even more gorgeous than normal with the start of the holiday season! We hope you all can join us! It's going to be a blast!!
