Wedding season is in full swing, and with bridal showers, bachelor parties, rehearsal dinners, and the main event, gift giving can be somewhat daunting. We rounded up some of the best places to get those heartfelt gifts from without having to leave the city (or pay for shipping).
Little House Shop
Open since 1934, Little House Shop has grown from its residential home base to an award-winning gift shop. Online registries are available, but if you are looking for an off-registry gift, this shop houses everything from frames and glassware to jewelry and bedding. Opt for a monogrammed acrylic tray for a classic gesture with a personal touch. 503 W. Lancaster Ave., Wayne, 610-688-3222
Scarlett Alley From monogrammed slate boards to sealed invitation boxes, Scarlett Alley is a go-to for brides registering for their wedding and pre-wedding gifts and is known for its unique offerings and personalized service. Brides can come in, shop their favorite items, and celebrate with a champagne or beer toast. Friend and family can then shop in-store or via website. 241 Race St., 215-592-7893
The Papery This Midtown Village boutique specializes in all things wedding-related on paper—from the invitations to the thank-you cards. It’s then only fitting that The Papery also boasts a grand selection of gifts for the bride and groom. Kate Spade wallets, note cards, and albums are perfect gifted side-by-side or separately, one for each different occasion leading up to the wedding. 1219 Locust St., 215-922-1500
Manor Homes and Gifts Take a stride into this boutique, located in the center of the city, to find unique offerings for the home. Manor Home and Gifts carries lines of china, crystal, dinnerware, and more from Europe, Asia, and the Americas, so finding a gift unlike any others is a simple task. 210 S. 17th St., 215-732-1030
At Pinot Boutique, find exactly what newlyweds who are oenophiles desire. Order them their favorite bottles and add a bride and groom wine topper for a personal touch. True winos will also love a decanter or travel tote, all available in different varieties at the shop. 227 Market St., 215-627-9463
