Retail therapy fun for the whole family. Lots of novelty items, but tasteful, not crap. Plus, yknow, cards for any occasion.
You're hard-pressed to come out of this shop empty-handed--between the excellent card selection, delicious smelling lotions and candles, gag gifts, clothes and jewelry, stickers and local books, you must need something. I always do my Christmas card shopping here, but if you see a box you like, buy it quick, because they go fast.
I love this place! – My mom told me about Presents of Mind, so i stopped in on Saturday to pick up a baby shower gift and found the most unique selection of baby clothing and accessories! I dont know much about babies, but the staff was very accommodating, and eager to help me choose the perfect gifts....i even found the cutest pair of locally made earrings for myself! I will deffinatly be back!
cool stuff - bad service – So, I will admit this place has very cool stuff. But from now on I will find 'this stuff' elsewhere. Last week I had a particular gift in mind for a friends birthday, knew exactly where it was in the store, and drove in from Hillsboro just to get it. Due to unforseen traffic on hwy 26 I knew I'd be a couple minutes late so called in to let them know i was on my way. I wasn't given any promises, but arrived at 7:02 (2 minutes after closing) and was greeted by nothing more than a locked door and blank stares from the sales staff inside. I understand the desire to get home on a Saturday evening... but maybe we should re-evaluate customer service. I'm sorry you lost me as a customer cause up until last weekend I really felt like you had something good going. Luckily I found the product I was looking for on Etsy... my friend will just have to wait for a belated gift.
I was very upset and concerned to learn of your most recent experience with Presents of Mind. We pride ourselves on our service and are consistently given positive reviews for that service. I am very sorry this was not the case that fateful Saturday night that has led to our first and only bad review. It is not our policy to rush closing to the point of turning away customers, especially when they have called ahead to let us know they are coming, but running late. We are looking into who was closing that night and making sure they and the entire staff is reminded of the importance of impeccable customer service. I hope you will reconsider visiting our store again in the future as this incident is not consistent with our normal level of customer service. We want you to know we truly value each and every customer we are fortunate enough to have, and wish them only the best experience shopping at Presents of Mind.
Presents of Mind
This plentifully stocked, one-stop gift shop makes it hard to leave without sneaking a little something for yourself. – In Short
This veteran Hawthorne neighborhood gift shop goes beyond generic gifts with everything from dangly earrings to bright handbags made by local designers. The fully-stocked card section takes up a good chunk of the store, and offers some of the wittiest cards in tow. Also available: invitations, announcements, stationary, baby accessories, locally made clothing, soaps, candles, and so many displays it'll will make you squeal with glee.
Lots of fun stuff – With a super sweet staff and ecclectic selection of gifts, you'll easily find yourself spending a lot of your paycheck at this store as soon as it's deposited into your account. They evenhave stuff for expecting mothers. I'm always treated respectfully and graciously at this cuter than cute gift shop.
coolest place in hawthorne – This store is a great,fun gift shop.It has candles,soaps,jewerly and more.So this is a great place to get gifts and stuff.
GREAT BOOTY – Like Treasure Island, this is so much more than a cards and gift store. It is an EXPERIENCE. The helpers are full of exciting recommendations for that special someone. Whether you have the time to browse or need to get in and get out, you will appreciate making PRESENTS of MIND your destination. I do and will continue to spend me swag there for great booty sez ARR.
Tell 'em "Jolly Roger" sent ya.
Again and again I love this store! – I love coming in at Christmas (then after spending all my Christmas money on myself) coming in again a week later with more money to finish my Christmas shopping. I find that I end up here at least once a month for every gift giving or gift to myself giving occasion. I am absurdly addicted to the Skeem candles (love the reusable glasses!). The beautiful, handmade princess skirts for girls. Best of all, the unique hoodies and P-town t shirts!!!!
I was more than mildly perplexed by one review. The lady came after closing (after calling and admittedly receiving no promises?) and because the staff didn't immediately re-open for her, she gave them one star??? Hm....Sounds like a superiority complex. No matter, everyone I know LOVES this shop. She can stick to shopping in Hillsboro (good luck with that) or Etsy (and pay through the nose for shipping). I'll continue coming to POM (well before closing, thanks!) and support my neighborhood!
Thanks Presents of Mind staff and buyers-you never disappoint!
Find it here! – If you like beautiful stationary, cute baby stuff, funny cards, great handmade jewelry, kithcy gifts, and really friendly people....this is the place for you! I always manage to find just what I'm looking for there. The owner is great and is usually always around to help out. I need to head over and look for some holiday giftwrap...
Love this place! – I've really only discovered Presents of Mind in the last year, and I'm glad. I love their jewelry and t-shirt selection, and they always seem to have fun new stuff. The staff is always awesome, and they're really great about holds and other things that some boutiques can be persnickety about. Glad to have them here.
Best in Portland – I love going to Presents of Mind. They have the best gifts, the friendliest and most helpful staff and the cutest baby stuff around. I love that I can take my kids in there and they enjoy it too because the staff is so great. I think their selection is wonderful from a wide range of local jewelry and gifts to the hottest in Paul Frank, Gama Go and Matt and Nat. I go every few weeks because there is always something new.
