This holiday season, if your gift list rivals Santa Claus's and your stress is building up like a blizzard, Gift-ology's got you covered. In its new home on Springfield Road in Westfield, Gift-ology features unique and special presents for everyone on your list. A visit here will help you cross items off your list while giving you the gift of time. Owner Tiffany Hannoush explains that her store is an “all-in-one gift shop for all price points” and assures her customers that there’s “something for everybody.” At a shop whose name translates to “the study of gifts,” you won't leave empty handed.
The original location opened at the Eastfield Mall in 2008 and has expanded and moved several times throughout its history, but Tiffany was thrilled when they opened in June of 2021 in Westfield. With the development of the Riverside Place retail spaces on Springfield Road, Tiffany recognized what she describes as “an amazing growth opportunity here in this community.” The residents of the city were looking for new shops, and Gift-ology has not disappointed. Tiffany shares that the “customers are so nice and so supportive.” One of the many reasons she has a loyal patron base is because Tiffany and her staff ensure that their shoppers feel taken care of and are happy with their purchases. “You find something – that’s our goal,” says Tiffany.
It is evident as soon as you step over the threshold of Gift-ology that Tiffany takes her goal very seriously. Every inch of the store holds a multitude of unique gifts for everyone on any holiday list. There are several different sections throughout the store, including: jewelry, cards, signs, decorations, food, and home goods. There is a men’s section, a baby section, and distinct areas for birthday, wedding, and anniversary gifts, and even a collection of offerings for the family pet.
Tiffany conducts thorough research before purchasing her inventory from 125 small business vendors. She tests the products herself, as she is a big believer in quality. She supports many women-owned businesses, such as “love Mich,” a local business that produces decorative coffee cozies. Gift-ology also features several jewelry lines, including the well-known Pandora brand, and a Massachusetts-based line called Dune. Dune Jewelry creates its pieces using sand from various beaches around the United States. You'll find pieces containing grains of sand from the beaches of Cape Cod, Florida, Maine, and other locations.
Because her “passion is gift-giving and buying,” Tiffany can assist her customers in finding the perfect token for their loved ones. When someone is the recipient of a package from Gift-ology, wrapped in their signature turquoise paper and topped with a multicolored bow, they will know it was chosen with a great deal of thought and effort.
Before you leave Gift-ology, pick up a pair of warm, comfy socks and a new mug. Then, when you arrive home early, because all of your shopping needs have been met, curl up by the fire with some hot cocoa and relax.
