There's something for just about everyone at Dave's Gift Shop! We have gifts suitable for all ages and genders from babies to adults. If you are looking for a gift, let us know who you are shopping for, and we'll be happy to make suggestions to point you in the right direction. Dave has been known to act as a "personal shopper" to help customers pick out gifts that are specially chosen for their recipient. Heck, he knows at least half the town, so it's pretty easy for him, haha! Dave often tells kids that he and Santa are tight. It's true!
Initially Dave and his wife Heather actually hand made most of the items in the gift shop. Some handmade items of theirs are still available like Dave's B.O.S.S. Soap and Stink Stopper sprays, his custom printed apparel, Heather's crocheted hats and headbands, her handmade jewelry, and team efforts like journals and greeting cards made from upcycled materials. Other local makers also have consignment pieces in the gift shop like handmade baby items, healing stone jewelry, hardwood cutting boards, and decorative items. We tend to feature handcrafted gifts that are a cut above the handmade items you might find elsewhere. Quality really is our thing!
Speaking of quality, we carry the widest selection of Melissa & Doug toys for three counties. That's no exaggeration! Being out here in the country has inspired us to bring better quality items like M&D classic wooden toys and activities to the local market so our customers don't have to travel far for the good stuff! There really isn't anything like Dave's Cafe & Gifts for quite a distance from Paxton, so we make sure we offer our local customers high quality items at a price that's competitive with surrounding markets. We've gotta take care of our peeps, and we'll take good care of you too if you are just stopping by!
Dave's Cafe & Gifts is proud to be a family friendly and accessible place to shop and eat for everyone including those with disabilities. If you need special assistance, don't hesitate to ask. We are here to serve all of our customers without discrimination.
