Urban Indigo, in Oakland, is a very handy store if you need to buy a gift for someone. So you best be putting it on your list of shops to visit. Particularly if you have a really tricky gift giving challenge.
So, for example, let’s say you have an uncle that’s impossible to buy for because he has everything. You know what? Urban Indigo has that one thing he doesn’t have. Or perhaps you have a best girlfriend who just loves Oakland made and one-of-a-kind jewelry. Well, Urban Indigo has that too. Did your friend move away from the Bay Area and you want to give them an I Love Oakland gift to remind them of what they are missing? No problem, Urban Indigo has it. Perhaps you know your girlfriend or wife ever so well–except when it comes to buying a gift for her. Suddenly, you haven’t got the slightest idea what to buy. Or, Maybe, you just suck at buying gifts and hate the process… well Urban Indigo can solve this problem for you too.
Hmmm. How to describe what they have because “eclectic” falls short. They have a lot. They might just have just thought of everything.
And you know what else Urban Indigo has? A freakin’ kooky sense of humor. We chuckled our way through the store.
They are seriously good at what they do though. It’s obvious that they work hard to source the all the perfect gifts and the ideal greeting cards. And whether the gift is for yourself or someone else, they’ve got selection in all price ranges.
