I'm such a sucker for a good gift shop, one with adorable notebooks and delicious smelling candles, maybe a few pieces of jewelry and an assortment of well curated little things that you just want. I was invited to visit the newly renovated Hallmark gold crown store in crown center and its gorgeous, seriously so well done. I love the little departments denoted with gorgeous wood engraved signs and the beautiful 3 dimensional collage fronts of the check out registers. I spent a good hour in the store looking through the shelves of goodies and tables filled with gorgeous gift ideas.
I love that this store had a small selection of local KC made goods, I was also super excited to see my friend Brit Morin's Britkits in store! These are diy kits with everything you need to do a single craft project. There was a huge table with a great selection of different kits, I love giving these as gifts for fun crafty people and the not so crafty because they are so easy, anyone can diy!
I'm so in love with the personalization studio, its so much more than you would expect from a gift store. The gifts are unique, thoughtful and beautiful, you can personalize intricate laser cut paper art, well designed wood picture frames and even personalized children's books.
I ordered a personalized laser cut piece of art, it was $50 which included the frame! I chose all the words in the piece of art except "Together, We" so it was completely customized to phrases that I wanted to write about our family. They had several different laser cut art options to choose from. Such a fun thing to have in our home!
They had awesome wood pieces in the customization studio that included these awesome ornaments a well as phone cases and picture frames. I really loved the detail in these ornaments, SO beautiful!
Needing a unique gift for the traveler in your family? Look no further than Hallmark- the leather engraved luggage tag and passport holders are gorgeous, and that journal, I want one!
I loved these fun wood baby blocks, such a cute gift for a new mom and a beautiful keepsake for the baby. The blocks are engraved with name, birthday, and birth measurements next to adorable little illustrations and to sweeten this little gift its only $39! I totally expected everything to be more than it actually was in the customization studio. Such a great resource for unique birthday and all other gifts this year. Happy celebrating!
