This time of year, shoppers are out in full force in search of Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gifts, graduation presents, wedding and shower gifts galore. Isn’t it nice to find everything you need under one roof? Instead of navigating mall madness, here’s a peaceful, relaxed alternative with nationwide shipping, free store-front parking, phone orders and gift registry for all occasions. Family-owned since 1978, Depot Home and Gifts is a must-see boutique on Route 202 between Morristown and Bernardsville.
Check out Depot Home and Gift’s huge collection of contemporary, fun home décor accessories from top artisans like MacKenzie-Childs, Michael Aram, Julia Knight and Juliska. If you need a house-warming or hostess treat, birthday or anniversary gift, visit this Morris County store. I especially like their monogrammed and personalized gifts … engraved wood cutting boards, embroidered throws or hand towels, monogrammed jewelry and travel accessories. You’ll also find whimsical rugs, throw blankets and pillows, frames and vases.
If you’re planning a sit-down holiday dinner or a backyard barbecue, browse table linens, serving pieces, glassware, ceramics and candles. But you’ll have to wait until September to visit the Christmas Shop’s stocking stuffers, ornaments, tabletop and gifts.
On the third floor of the same building, you’ll also find Paradise, a bright and beautiful Lilly Pulitzer signature store that recently moved from its long-time location just down the road. If you like living a colorful life, you’ll adore this complete selection of iconic Lilly women’s clothing, footwear and accessories, plus children’s and men’s.
And on the lower level is everyone’s favorite children’s store, Baby Crossing, a bountiful boutique with adorable infant and toddler gifts, clothing, toys and a baby registry. Popular luxury brands include Magnolia Baby, Aiden + Anais, Petit Bateau and Kissy, Kissy.
Depot Home and Gifts, Paradise and Baby Crossing are located just off Route 287 at 980 Mt. Kemble Avenue in Morristown (973-425-4080). This charming stretch of road is known by locals as “The Country Mile.” Make a day of it by having lunch nearby at the Market Taverne and visiting other area businesses like Talbots, Greenbaum Interiors, J. McLaughlin, F. Gerald New, Garden Cottage, Elizabeth Johns Bridal Salon, Wightman’s Farms, Country Mile Gardens, Minuteman Restaurant and Pie Shop, and the Candy Store of Harding.Click here to leave a comment
