Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, graduations, weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and so on — Our lives are full of momentous occasions that deserve to be celebrated and honored. The standards when handpicking gifts for each occasion should be high, and locally-owned gift shop, Gifts on Parkway, is stocked full of thoughtful and creative items that can not only meet your highest standards, but are “Gifts You Would Give Yourself.”
Graduation and Mother’s Day has come and gone, but we have officially hit the season for vacation! Whether your spot to relax and vacation is on the sandy beaches of Florida or a cruise ship making its way around the Mediterranean, Cheryl Pledger, owner and founder of Gifts on Parkway, believes there are several things everyone needs in his or her beach bag or carry-on tote.
To-Go Cups
Tervis Tumblers are a durable and on-the-go product that every traveler needs in their possession. How many times have you bought a drink at a gas station or airport gift shop and spilt it? Tervis cups are specifically designed to reflect your personality, with designs ranging from animal prints, sports teams logos and a vast array of colors in lids, straws, and even handles for more stability.
Shopping Tip: Father’s day is around the corner; grab a Tervis with dad’s favorite baseball team on the front!
Oversized Tote
With all of the additional costs for luggage while traveling, it can be in a traveler’s best interest to cram as much as possible in a carry-on bag. If you are not planning on flying to your destination, consider an oversized tote equally as helpful when making trips to the lake, beach or even a weekend at grandma’s house.  If you are looking for a bag you can be more mobile and quick with, Gifts on Parkway carries an interchangeable jewelry line, Ginger Snaps, where you can pick out a lightweight cross-body bag and add the “snaps” to the bag. Do not stop there, though – Ginger Snaps offers additional items the snaps can be added to, including sandals and sunglasses, all great items to toss in your tote or cross-body bag.
Travel Size Lotion
No matter where you plan to spend your summer, one thing remains true – skin gets dry due to increased exposure to the sun. Camille Beckman, a line of body care products, is another line that can be purchased at Gifts on Parkway. A majority of the lotions are offered in travel size proportions.
Why Gifts on Parkway?
Cheryl takes pride in the items and brands in her store, and it is evident the moment you walk in and are greeted by smiling faces, knowledgeable customer service, down to the perfectly placed chocolate truffles by the register. Everything you buy in the store can be beautifully giftwrapped. If you are not yet convinced they epitomize everything related to convenience and celebrating, I have got the icing on the cake – their items can also be bought in the gift shop at St. Mary’s Regional Hospital in Russellville.
