Best Gift Shop 

Phoenix Rising

Call us selfish, but there's nothing we hate quite so much as shopping for other people. What do they want? What do they not already have? What seems like a generous price point — without being so generous as to make things awkward? It's almost impossible to buy a great gift — yet the occasions for which we need to do so are seemingly endless. Which is one reason Phoenix Rising has become our go-to shop for birthdays, anniversaries, even bridal showers. The selection is quirkily clever without being wildly impractical, with curation that takes the guesswork out of purchases. We've hit a homerun with just about everything we've bought here, from jewelry to wallets to coffee-table books. The card selection is also spot-on, which saves the dreaded second stop at a Hallmark shop. You'll be covered in no time, freeing you up to shop for a much easier-to-please recipient: yourself. 6331 Delmar Boulevard, University City, 63130. 314-862-0609,
