Looking for the perfect gift?

We’ve all had to deal with it. Finding a present for that hard-to-please person. Or the person who would be pleased with anything, but seems to have everything. Or your mother, who says she “needs clothes,” but has a list of requirements for the clothes (nothing scratchy, nothing with buttons, nothing in purple) that would drive a personal stylist crazy. Or something for all the teenagers who volunteered at your church food drive, that works for both girls and boys and doesn’t cost much.

The Assistance League of Irvine Thrift Shop has a solution – a GIFT CERTIFICATE to the shop! These cost $5 each, and you can buy as many as you want! Your hard-to-please friend, your easy-to-please friend, your mother, and your volunteers can pick out whatever they want from our ever-changing stock of clothing, home decor, and household gadgets (plus books, toys, and puzzles). They’ll have the thrill of finding something they really want. You’ll have the thrill of knowing your gift won’t sit in the closet. And both of you will have the satisfaction of knowing the purchase is supporting a good cause.

To purchase a gift certificate, just come into the Assistance League of Irvine Thrift Shop and tell one of our members at the checkout counter you’d like to buy one (or two . . . Or several . . .). It will be the easiest (and the most fun) gift you buy all year!

Our newest gift idea!

iStock_000009799796MediumDid you know that the ALI thrift shop has GIFT CERTIFICATES? These come in $5 denominations and are a perfect solution for those situations where you need an affordable gift. Like these:

  1. You belong to a Bunco group where everyone has to bring a token door prize to award during the evening.
  2. Your 8th grade daughter wants to have a sleepover birthday party, and you need party favors.
  3. The kid down the street, who has been sleeping on his parents’ couch ever since he graduated from college five years ago, because he’s “writing a screenplay,” finally moves into an apartment, and you want to give him something to send him on his way. (You give his parents a bottle of champagne, however.)
  4. You’re the church youth group advisor/band mother/drill team chaperone or some other type of adult volunteer for a high-school group, and need a unisex-type gift or prize for the kids, that isn’t food.

See how easy this could be? Just visit the thrift shop and tell the cashier you want to buy some GIFT CERTIFICATES. (And while you’re at the shop, reward yourself with a little something, too!)
