The Perfect Gift Store
What is it ?
A unique Christmas shopping experience for registered parents to choose gifts that they know their children will love. Everything is 100% donated and brand new. There is no cost for the gifts or the appointment. We collect donations all year long, so that we can have a beautiful assortment of toys and extra funds to be able to purchase extra to fill in any age group gaps.
Who is it for?
This service we provide is for families that are suffering financial hardship in this crazy 2020 year. Whether it has been from COVID, or the rained out farmers, or the oilfield workers that have experienced severe cutbacks, or job loss, or just everyday hardworking people that just need a little help this year so it doesn’t have to be the heart-wrenching choice between food on the table OR gifts under the tree for kids.
We want to see Hope restored in the family. The thrill a parent experiences, knowing the gift that they hand-picked from The Perfect Gift Store will strike Joy in their Child’s eyes and heart is our ultimate goal! The restoration of family, Love, memories, and holiday Joy is The Perfect Gift Store’s entire purpose!
How Does It Work?
Registration is located at the bottom of this page, as well as a link to this page from Facebook for parents/guardians to register. We (TPGS) then contact the names registered, take each client through a brief screening and approval process questionnaire, then make private appointments for them to come and enjoy an appointed time slot in our store shopping for each child and being pampered while their gifts are being wrapped! The number of gifts that can be chosen will be shared with them at the beginning of the boutique appointment, it will depend on how many registrations are collected before the deadline and the number of toys that have been donated.
The downtown store will be open for appointments only.
Our community is truly a VERY generous one and with many options available to help struggling families at this time of year. We respectfully ask if you have registered with any of them for help this Christmas season – please continue with them and not register with us as well – so that we can reach further and more people can be blessed by this service. Thank You in advance for your honesty.

I loved the chance to be able to pick out gifts for my grandbabies and the atmosphere there was so loving and the prayers I received really helped me through the Christmas holidays. I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart because my grandbabies got to enjoy the gifts and made their Christmas very special.
