Operating as a store within a store, Love Gift Shoppe has debuted inside Bambino’s, a baby and children’s boutique at 999 E. Basse Road, Suite 196.

Recognizing that infants get older, Love Gift Shoppe offers customizable gift options for tots and tweens, a store representative said.

With a growing daughter of her own, owner Karen Saunders heard from moms with girls ages 8 to 14 who wanted gifts and keepsakes they could cherish.

Bambino’s, the mothership so to speak, has been open 22 years, evolving from a clothing store to a gift shop for babies and toddlers.

“The shop is convenient … on the way to a baby shower or lunch with an expecting mom,” Saunders said. “We want to offer that to the busy mom who is on her way to a party.”

Love Gift Shoppe also has plenty to offer. March 25 marked the grand opening.

According to a release, “The cozy nook is filled with tween gear like personalized, glitzy, hot stamped T-shirts and water bottles, as well as fun little add-ons like lip gloss, jewelry and books. The store also has plenty of goodies for little ones like teething beads and exclusive Love Gift Shoppe dolls, and … custom embroidery, heat press and vinyl personalization for all ages.”

In addition to clothing, Love Gift Shoppe also carries books, camp gear, lunch boxes and nail polish.

Gift-wrapping of purchases comes at no extra cost.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and  1-5 p.m. Sunday.
