Funky, unique gifts are this Charles Street shop's specialty. – The Scene
Cute and fun gift ideas abound at Black Ink, where sensual candles meet children's books and Chinese slippers. Small in size, the store fits perfectly into the warm ambience of Charles Street. You'll want to walk right in after a glance at the knickknacks lining the walls.
Rubber stamps and ink pads, delicate ribbons, cards, tin lunch boxes and embroidered mittens are just some of the trinkets you'll find. We like the Zen candlesticks ($6), green froggy banks and the creamer creatures. Reasonable prices make Black Ink's treasures even more appealing, so surprise a friend with a sushi candle set ($18) or a pet photo album. There's also a miniature library, with books on traveling, cooking and stories for kids. Read "The Slant Book" by Peter Newell; the book actually is slanted. Pick up "Japanese Children's Favorite Stories" or learn about London and Paris.
too much fun – a fabulous selection of gifts and items not to be missed. the ecclectic mix includes something for everyone: cool european toys, sleek, designerly housewares and quick grabs like fake sushi. it's nice that they incorporated items from the museum of useful things, too. the "hello my name is" glassware makes a great housewarming present.
