Shopping

Gift Shopping on Hawthorne

Yesterday I needed to find a white elephant gift for work, so Rigby and I paid to visit to SE Hawthorne Blvd. Between 35th and 38th, there are three great knick-knack shops that are perfect for finding small presents, especially during the holidays.

And best of all, they’re dog-friendly!

Presents of Mind
3633 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, OR 97214

This is probably the biggest store of the three, and my favorite place to buy greeting cards. Rigby knows she can score a cookie if she makes puppy eyes at the register.

Tender Loving Empire
3541 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, OR 97214

Lots of little hipster-y gifts here, including some dog products! They also have a huge collection of enamel pins, which make good fit-in-an-envelope gifts for faraway friends.Β 

There are homemade ginger treats behind the counter, too, and Rigby knows it!

Memento
3707 SE Hawthorne Blvd
Portland, OR 97214

This place has some goofier gifts and a few themed sections (think Star Wars and Star Trek). I ended up getting my white elephant gift here, including (yes) this wonderfully creepy little finger-hand.Β
