    Give the Gift that Gives Twice!

    If you are looking for a store that is really special, come visit It’s a Gift! in West Reading.

    We are a gift store that specializes in artisan made as well as manufactured items. We have items for infants to elders and everyone in between!

    The store is a mid to high-end specialty boutique that carries the perfect combination of artisan merchandise and other quality items for home décor & entertaining needs, jewelry & jewelry accessories, scarves & fashion accessories, infants' clothing & children's toys, books, puppets and games, just to name a few items from their extensive inventory.

    This is why customers across Berks County voted It's a Gift! The Best Place to Buy a Gift, the last four years in a row!

    But there are even more reasons to shop in this little store! It’s a Gift! is carrying on an important tradition in U.S. history.

    It’s a Gift!, run by Woman’s Exchange, is a modern iteration of the historic Women’s Exchanges. Started in 1832, the women’s exchange movement is the country’s oldest continuously operating charity still existing in the U.S. WOW! What a legacy!!

    In the 20th century there were more than 200 stores across the country, but the store on Penn Avenue is now one of only 20 remaining.

    Your purchase helps local charities

    When you shop at It’s a Gift! you are helping to preserve that 185 year history as well as the charitable giving tradition that Woman’s Exchanges are known for. Each year all profits from sales go to a local 501(c3) Berks County charity.
