The Perfect Home & Gift may just be the perfect store!

Hidden away in the Target plaza in Huntersville is a real gem of a store. A friend of mine invited me to the Christmas Open House at The Perfect Home & Gift this past Saturday. And what a great find! Not only did I enjoy a piping hot cup of mulled cider, I thoroughly enjoyed my shopping experience.

Holiday gift giving

The purpose of the open house was to give everyone a head start on their holiday decorating and shopping. From ornaments to table settings, there was a great selection.

The perfect wedding gift

Now that weddings are being held again, it’s important to buy that special AND unique gift. I love shopping and the gifts ranged from cute to elegant. There were also beautiful cards with lovely sentiments to go with any gift you pick out.

Great clothes

My friend and colleague, Margi Kyle, invited me to the open house this past Saturday. She had discovered the shop a few weeks ago and found the perfect outfit for holiday gatherings.
