About Us

We are passionate about gift-giving!  Each item in our shop is carefully chosen with a particular person or occasion in mind. We all lead hectic lives, we work hard for our money, and we want to purchase meaningful gifts for the special people in our lives. Shopping should not feel like a chore and gift-giving should not feel like a burden. We "get it" and want you offer you a simple solution - unique products and great value.  

Kara Taylor became the resident Giftologist when she purchased the business in June 2013. Her fascination of and love for retail came from humble beginnings at age 4, when she would pluck rocks from the driveway, wash, and sell them to neighbors (because who doesn't need a new rock?!), And since her first job dusting shelves in a little boutique at age 17, Kara dreamed of owning her own store.  Now a proud indie boutique owner, Kara is excited to continue the legacy of The Gift Enclosure.

The Gift Enclosure has been a fixture in Downtown Chambersburg, PA for over 3 decades.  The items on this site will give you just a glimpse of all the amazing things in our shop - you'll have a great time shopping online with us but you'll have even more fun when you visit us in person! Come in to see our fantastic selection of Vera Bradley, Polish Pottery, Crabtree & Evelyn, and much more!  Byers' Choice Carolers available Mid-October-January.

We are open Monday-Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-5pm, First Fridays (May-Dec) 10am-8pm.  After-hours shopping can be arranged with 48 hours notice.
