Shop for Unique Handmade Gifts This Holiday at Hourglass Gift Gallery

Hourglass Gift Gallery in Melrose is a gallery and gift shop, but it’s also the solution to a holiday season problem: namely, how to find a truly unique gift for someone special. What do you get for the person who can find anything they want with a few clicks online? Hourglass attempts to solve that dilemma with one-of-a-kind gifts like locally-made pottery, hand-made clothing, artisanal jewelry, and more.

Founded by local jeweler Lorrie DiCesare nearly two decades ago, Hourglass has always promoted the idea that art is for everyone—you’ll find textiles, candles, photography, and painting at a range of price points. Don’t know where to begin? Just ask the friendly and knowledgeable staff, who will walk you through the store’s inventory to find a gift that’s right for your situation. The store is open until 5 pm Sundays through Wednesdays, with later hours Thursday through Saturday.
