Occasions Gift Store Now Open in Kentlands


Occasions Gift Store is now open in Kentlands Market Square at 113 Market Street, Gaithersburg, Maryland 20878, four doors from Starbucks. This is the second location for this business owned by Lakelands resident Stephanie Menick. 


Occasions Gift Store sets itself apart with unique gifts and gift baskets that customers can take pride in giving as presents.

The store carries a variety of items such as clothing, accessories, home gifts, baby gifts, stationary sets and other boutique items.

Occasions also caters to young teenagers, or tweens, by staying on top of popular trends like fuzzy unicorn pajamas. The store also offers gifts for a variety of occasions in life like graduation, house warmings and holidays.

One way the store aims to give items a personalized touch is by offering custom monograms, school logos and names to drinkware. Menick also offers free gift wrapping and makes a point to stay on top of recent trends so every week customers have a new array of products to browse.
