The lowdown: It may be petite but this shop is big on gift-giving ideas. Just-opened Petite Chic boutique is brimming with personalized and custom-made presents and curious goods.
“Petite Chic offers the ultimate personal shopping experience for gifts. We specialize in personalized and custom made-to-order products, and a wide array of readily available gifts for any occasion — for children and adults alike as well as items for the home and travel,” Owner Alison Zhuk says.
The ‘hood: Located in the Design District across the street from Harry’s Pizzeria, Zhuk says of her new digs, “We’re in Miami’s burgeoning Mecca of art, design and fashion. The area is destined to be the next hot spot!”
Highlights: Scoop up the shop’s best seller — their Petite Chic private labeled custom travel bags featuring your choice of fabric combinations and appliqued monograms which can even be covered in vinyl. Also up for keeps? Voluspa, D.L. & Co. apothecary lines, Graphic Image leather goods, Sofia Cashmere blankets and travel accessories, Plain Mary luxury baby gift items, Boatman Geller custom stationery and more.
The owner says: “Fortunately for me, there has been a complete void of gift shops in the Miami area — and there are a multitude of needs for gift giving. I have carefully selected products that are fun yet practical and many of which are personalized, which is unique in and of itself,” Zhuk says.
She adds, “Everyone loves to receive a personalized or custom-made gift as it shows thought was given to the gift selection process. Furthermore, I offer my customers a personal shopping experience where they can work one on one with me to create something special. With many years in the fashion industry, I bring my personal expertise to the table!” Oui to that.
