Whether you are looking for delicious dining, interesting attractions and shops, enticing events or home away from home lodging—a getaway to Lafayette-West Lafayette, Indiana is sure to satisfy. Right now the locals are talking about Gretel's Fine Gifts, the shop with unique gifts and decorating tips! It is the season for shopping!  With Christmas a little over 2 weeks away (wow...has it crept up on anyone else??) folks are heading to the stores to find the perfect gift for friends and loved ones.  They want to purchase the "perfect" gift that will make the person opening it feel special and joyous.  I recommend one my favorite local shopping establishments, Gretel's Fine Gifts.  Gretel's is a collage of fine gift items ranging from pottery, jewelry, clocks, cards, inspirational ornaments/figurines and much, much more.  Gretel's offers visitors a chance to purchase local artisan goods, yet also goods bought at Market that one cannot purchase anywhere else. Shopping at Gretel's is like a being a kid in a candy store only instead of candy, there is decorating items galore.  Once a person gets started shopping, he or she cannot stop!  My favorite gift I have purchased at Gretel's is a delicate, colorful, beaded bracelet for one of my closest friends for helping in my wedding.  My friend's style is hip and trendy and the bracelet fit her personality to the tee!  It was not only a ton of fun shopping for a gift for her, but knowing that she loves the piece I selected brings me joy.
