Unique, Classy and Affordable

I came across this shop while walking down Bazalel St. in Jerusalem. I wasn't planning on spending any money, BUT what I found outstanding about Barbara Shaw Gifts was the huge selection of unique and high-class souvenirs offered which are ACTUALLY affordable, (the combination of classy and affordable seems to be a combination that is unheard of nowadays). Everything from the one of a kind ceramics to the wide range of fun themed humorous products

that include; jewelry, tote bags, pillows, t-shirts, aprons and baby onesies, were fairly priced and express the Jerusalem lifestyle with a modern flavor. I found the Yiddish line to be really funny and also clever. It is a THE go-to place for charming Judaica gifts in Jerusalem. The store had something for everyone on my list and it's not often that you find all of that in one store. I also couldn't be more pleased with the customer service. I highly recommend Barbara Shaw Gifts, there is also a location on Emek Refaim street. If you're looking for uniqueness, character, and quality in a gift (that won't put a hole in your wallet) then I suggest checking out either store. - Also everything is made in Jerusalem.
