“Best gifts in Israel!”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

This is my favorite place to visit in Emek Refaim and it's my number one destination for souvenirs and shabbat/chag table items that have a modern flavor to them. The prices are good and the designs are so unique and great. Highly, highly recommended.

“Stylish, unique gifts and souvenirs”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

We simply love this place, both on and offline. The store in Emek Refaim is cosy and delightful, and the selection is a cool twist on the usual Judaica. Everything from seder plates, to mugs with "mensch" written on them in Yiddish, to salt and pepper shakers, they've thought of everything, and it's all edgy and different, yet still tasteful and classy.

They ship locally and overseas too, which is a treat because it's often hard to find the right gift for friends and relatives. But the store itself is definitely worth a visit - a highlight of our Jerusalem shopping trips!

“great little gift shop for cooler souvenirs”
Reviewed 24 April 2013

A great little find in jerusalem, especially if you're a returning visitor to the city, like my family, is the Barbara Shaw Gifts shop on Emek Refaim street. It is a small shop, a bit past the post office.
Someone posted that in general it's difficult to find original armenian ceramics in jerusalem because of all the fakes, but this shop is a good alternative, because they make the items themselves and it has a more modern look to it. There are ceramics, handmade things like aprons and towels for the kitchen. etc..
We are almost always able to find new interesting things here for relatives in the US, who have already seen all the regular stuff in the more conventional souvenir shops. And the stuff from this shop looks "livelier" too...
