Give a Gift, Get a Gift

I have many times said I often feel like I fell in the honey pot (no pun intended) of life. I have been so fortunate as an individual and my businesses are no different. Since we opened the doors of The Hive in September, the support and encouragement from long-time clients and new friends alike have been amazing. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for spring; we haven’t even received our first shipment of Ulla Johnson, Raquel Allegra or Jenni Kayne yet–lines I know you will love.


So this December we decided to run a new promotion at The Shoe Hive and The Hive in anticipation of our great spring unveiling. We like to call it “Give a Gift, Get a Gift.” Starting December 1 and running through December 29, for every $250 you spend in merchandise we will give you a $50 gift card that can be used on anything by anyone (you can gift it to someone else!) at any time during 2017 at either store.

The gift card is as good as cash though, so you can’t lose it! If the person redeeming the gift card does not have it in hand, we cannot apply the card’s balance to the purchase.

Holiday Gift Guide: Staff Picks

We asked Elizabeth, Christen, Katie, Penelope and Madeline to weigh in on what they might want to give or receive this holiday season. Their picks varied based on their personal style and the people they are shopping for this holiday season. But there were some common themes! Oversized scarves and wraps, pom pom hats, Asha by ADM jewelry and anything festive topped the list!

Our staff is always happy to help you shop. Whether you’re looking for something special for your sister or need something affordable yet personable for your staff. Give us a budget and a description of the person you’re shopping for, and we will help you find the perfect gift. Guaranteed!


Holiday Gift Guide: Under $100

Finding the perfect gift doesn’t have to break the bank. From handmade jewelry to cozy winter scarves and slippers and travel essentials galore, this may be our favorite and most varied gift guide yet! Special items to note include the selection of carry-on cocktail kits which provide everything the people on your list need to mix two proper cocktails at 30,000 feet. The tassel earrings by Hart Hagerty have also been flying out of the store–handmade in Hong Kong by artisans who work with one of Christen’s close friends (the designer), these statement pieces come in a variety of sizes, lengths and colors. No matter who you’re shopping for this holiday season and no matter your budget, we have something you will want to give and perhaps even receive!


Holiday Gift Guide: Under $50

Certainly, an act of love can be just as meaningful as a wrapped gift. But it’s still nice to give someone you care for a present to open this holiday season, even if it’s something small. Use this guide to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list—without exceeding your holiday budget. This year, we’ve stocked our shelves with jewelry, candles, cosmetic cases and clutches and a variety of gifts–all under $50–to ensure you are able to show those you love just how much you care.


Holiday Gift Guide: Under $25

Gift-giving is already tricky when you begin your gift-getting and your budget is still ample. But inevitably there comes a moment after the shopping is done and you’ve blown through your budget when you realize there are a few more people at the tail end of your list. People, oh, like your entire office, that couple hosting a holiday party, and that semi-friend who dropped a subtle hint she got you something when you totally weren’t going to get her anything. And you realize you’re not so done with shopping at all.

That’s where these this list comes in.

You won’t have to shell out much for the picks on this gift guide, whether they’re presents for coworkers or acquaintances or even loved ones. That doesn’t mean they have to look like an afterthought though. In fact, this list includes gifts that are thoughtful and practical, gifts that any recipient will love and appreciate!


Our holiday wish lists are back!

We are making gift-giving AND gift-getting easy at both of our stores. Come in, fill out a wish list, and tell us how to reach the person buying you presents this year. We’ll reach out to them and make sure you get something you will love! It’s as easy as 1-2-3.

Not sure what you want to include on your list? We can help! Not only can anyone on our staff make suggestions for any price point, but we will also be sending out gift guides by email over the next few weeks. So, stay tuned!

One more thing: We have once again partnered with Braddock Commercial Real Estate for our annual Men’s Night. Mark your calendars: the event will be held on Tuesday, December 13. If your wish list contact person is a guy, we will invite him to this fun annual event and make the gift-giving process that much easier on and enjoyable for him!
