BEST GIFT SHOP

I Like You

It's easy to like a gift shop that already likes you before you even spend a dime. Plus, this plucky little den of delights with the brightly painted exterior walls and indoor Astroturf floor is quite possibly one of the happiest stores around. I Like You specializes in "small things for a prettier life" created by local talent and independent artists, which is a good enough reason to pay the Nordeast shop a visit, but you'll keep coming back because of the fabulous selection. Funky Minnesota mementos, unique handmade greeting cards, well-priced art prints, an overwhelming amount of gorgeous jewelry, and super-cute felted hats, gloves, and scarves make it fun to browse this friendly place for hours. And you'll be hard-pressed to find hipper kids' clothes anywhere else. Need a tiny necktie for your dog? Check. How about a sock monkey in a Lucha Libre mask? Yep. I Like You, we like you very, very much.
