Have you been to Rose and Dove gift shop in North Andover, Massachusetts? I absolutely love it. They make gift shopping so easy for this busy working mom and Realtor. I was looking for a closing gift for a real estate client. Rose and Dove did not disappoint! The store reminds me of The Paper Store, but I prefer to support a local business when I can. As an entrepreneur myself, I’m all about supporting small businesses.
I love this place for the following reasons:
I was able to tell the store employee (Marissa is amazing!) my budget, my theme and a brief description of my client. She put together a fun basket of gifts within my price point. She listened to my concerns and adjusted accordingly. Within a few minutes, she hand selected the perfect assortment of goodies to build a basket gift.
Pictures say it all. Just look at the great selection of products. Rose and Dove is a one-stop shop for gifts of every occasion! Birthday items, baby toys and clothing, seasonal holiday items, wedding gifts, home decor, hobby-related items, womens’ clothing and accessories, books and more.
While I was getting help, another store employee (Kim) was engaging with my 3-year old. She offered my daughter a choice of toy from the toy box behind the desk. Those little toys kept her happy while I was able to shop. It was a pleasant shopping experience for this momma.
But that’s not all. After I made my purchase, the ladies carefully removed all the price stickers and wrapped coordinating groups of items in cellophane with colorful ribbons. They placed everything in a gift bag with tissue paper and coordinating string. This saves me time! The presentation and the details are as much a gift as the gift itself. I love that they did everything for me. One less trip to Target to find gift bags and tissue paper is a win in my eyes!
The next time you’re looking for a gift for a friend or family member, consider Rose and Dove gift shop. Yes, I will definitely be back there.
