News and events in the shop


At wish gifts, we always want to share fun happenings around Denver.  Well, we just learned about a cool site that features local businesses that celebrities have visited.  It’s always fun to see the what’s happening in our world.  Check out and see if you find cool tips from your favorite celebrities.

We were lucky enough to be mentioned on the site after our June 2017 special event combining fashion from Show Me Your Mumu and the incredible words of author Nick Miller.  These two are both talented and kind souls.  We are lucky to have their vision in our stores.

Thanks for helping us celebrate 5 years in business!

We do not take 5 years in business for granted.

In these 5 years, we quickly grew out of our original home on South Gaylord Street, moved into our current home (nestled between our favorite ice cream and pizza places), and we were honored with three 5280 Top of the Town awards!

THANK YOU!  None of this would be possible without you!

Looking forward to making holiday shopping fun & easy in the coming months.  Stay tuned for all of our special events, including Shop Small Saturday, Santa’s visit and Whiskey Wednesday men shopping nights – to name a few.

Nick Miller & Show Me Your Mumu – Exclusive Event – June 1st, 2017

wish gifts and wish boutique presented a Colorado exclusive event on June 1st, as we welcomed novelist/screenwriter Nick Miller.  The event featured Nick’s cards and prints, with special guest appearance and pop-up by Cammy Miller with Show Me Your Mumu.

It was an absolute pleasure to get to know these creative souls and their individual talents. We are so thankful for Nick and Cammy, and their friends, for supporting our local business.

Here’s a sneak peek from the event:

Denver Derby – May 2017

We are proud to be official sponsors of Denver’s Original Derby Party – May 2017.

As sponsors, we gave away 500 pink flip flops to Derby guests.  Hopefully, this saved some tired feet after wearing heels all day on the DCPA grass.  It was a beautiful day for a great cause.  Here’s some photos from our day.  Next year, be sure to shop wish boutique for all your derby attire.  We have some of the best derby hats in town!
