Victoria Advocate readers voted About the Gift best gift shop in the 2013 Best of the Best contest.

About the Gift offers a little bit for everybody in its 2,700-square-foot store. Advocate readers voted About the Gift best gift shop in the 2013 Best of the Best contest.

Owner Liz Keehn said pretty much all of it - from the homemade handbags and candles to the recyclable green toys hailing from California - is made in the United States.

"We really try to support the U.S. economy," Keehn said.

She also said they have the largest selection of Yellow Box brand shoes in town and recognizes that appreciating each customer contributes to a lot of her 8-year-old business' success.

"It is hard. In a small business, if somebody gets bad service, they don't come back, whereas they will go back to a chain," she said. "We do want to thank our customers for voting for us."
