Buying gifts is supposed to be a fun and personal experience for both the giver and receiver.
But in the age of baby and bridal registries and big chain stores, we too often find ourselves purchasing a $75 blender from a Bed, Bath & Beyond instead of something special.
But remember, a registry is just an option. Next time you're invited to a gathering, be it a baby or bridal shower, birthday or dinner party, pop into one of Philly's small gift boutiques for the perfect, personal present.
