After opening our doors on October 1st, 2012, we quickly learned our little gift shop needed more space to offer you the very best in gift. We recently found a great new home for wish gifts- allowing us to grow but stay in the neighborhood we love!
Please join us on July 18th, 2015 for our Grand Re-Opening of wish gifts at 750 S. University BLVD (next to Bonnie Brae Tavern and across the street from Bonnie Brae Ice Cream). More to come on this exciting news….. Here’s a couple photos from the first few days and weeks of renovation. This space has been a bank for many decades and soon will become a pretty gift boutique! We can’t wait to share it with you!
For over a year now, we have proudly hosted a monthly book reading for our little wish friends. We choose different cities/states to highlight, in the Good Night Our World book series. San Fran, Kentucky, Wisconsin, Chicago, Seattle, Martha’s Vineyard and Brooklyn are just a few of the places we’ve explored! Parents are given a few minutes of free time and a glass of prosecco, while their child learns about a cool American city and enjoys a few snacks.
If your little friend might be interested, please call us for this month’s book reading (303-722-2900) or join our email list, and we’ll send a monthly invite. Drop in wish gifts anytime and you’ll always find a great selection of our favorite Good Night Books- Colorado, Denver, Hawaii and New York City to name a few.
As entrepreneurs, the show Shark Tank definitely catches our attention! A few products have also caught our eye and supporting these small business owners is very exciting. Just in our baby/kid section at wish gifts, we have three companies that have appeared on Shark Tank (and even more in our gifts for adults). Hot Tot offers effective and safe hair products for kids. With a little sweetness added, Neat Cheeks makes wiping baby’s faces a breeze. Finally, our latest Shark Tank addition is Funbites. A simple, fun way to cut children’s food into shapes- making meal time really enjoyable!
Let us know if you see a Shark Tank product you think would fit well into wish gifts!
You are invited to visit Santa at wish gifts on Saturday, December 13th, 2014 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. It’s the perfect setting to tell Santa all your wishes! Holiday goodies will be served.
Summer is coming to an end and our little friends are back to school. Make the transition easier with some new gear. Here’s a few of our favorites: Madpax, ORE lunch boxes, and Smencils pencils! Madpax backpacks make a statement. Sure to get noticed, plus super durable and will last the whole year. ORE makes very washable and sturdy lunch boxes- big enough to fit all your child needs at lunch. Throw in some scented pencils, even if they aren’t on the supply list, to add a little fun in your child’s day. Stop in wish gifts for all your back-to-school needs and have a happy & safe school year!

Get artistic with us!
We love art and feel it is so important for our young friends to develop a love and appreciation for art. Therefore, wish gifts will host four art classes, on our back patio, for children 6 to 10-years-old. Our favorite art teacher, with 20+ years experience teaching, will be leading the art classes this July. Please call for more information (303-722-2900) and to get your child signed up. Each class is a different project- so sign up for one or all. Space is limited. The art class is our treat!
wish gifts proudly hosted parent and child yoga classes at a great new yoga studio on our block, 303 b. yoga, in May and June (2014). We had so much fun connecting with other moms and kids through our appreciation of yoga. We love how yoga teaches are children to be strong!
As a result of our efforts with 303 b. yoga, kid classes and Mommy & Me classes are part of their schedule now. Call 303 b. yoga for more information: 303-589-8267 or www.303byoga.com
