Mountain View Best Hidden Gem for Holiday Shopping
With the holidays in full swing, and knowing that we’re all on the hunt for one location where you can find unique and thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list at great prices, I wanted to share with you all one of the best kept secrets for your holiday shopping. And you may be surprised. It’s somewhere you’re probably not expecting: our very own, local El Camino Hospital in Mountain View.
I stopped by yesterday to get a tour by Patty Tager, the buyer for the El Camino Hospital Gift Shops, and was blown away by the amazing selection of gifts, for any and every season, but especially for the holiday season available in their five different gift shops. Patty combs the country throughout the year to find cutting edge and uniqe products and then sells them at very competitive prices. “We are committed to offering the best products and services to all our customers, whether they are patients in our hospital, or members of our community, who come for a different shopping experience,” she said.
Price ranges and assortments vary and they have an extraordinary selection of holiday décor and gifts. You can find jewelry, scented candles, beautiful apparel and scarves, gifts for everyone in the family, fresh flowers, and even something so simple as a toothbrush. I saw great gifts for SF Giants and SJ Sharks fans. There’s something for everyone, and I had fun scoping out what I’m going to buy for hostess gifts this year. It really is one of those local gems that few people know about, so I wanted to share it with you. [...]
After seeing the utter devastation in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan (also known as Yolanda), I was moved to help out.
With so many friends from the Philippines and after years working alongside many caring and compassionate nurses who are Filipino, I’ll be making a donation to the Philippine Red Cross.
For every person who Likes my Facebook page, I’ll donate a dollar. Every little bit helps, so please feel free to pass this along to your friends.
Thanks so much.
