Hi, there!

Thanks for shopping at Indiana Gifts. We are thrilled to feature fun, beautiful, and sentimental products made by Indiana companies. We know you’ll find the perfect gifts to give and collect. Every product is hand-selected by our buying team, and we love discovering new items.

Indiana Gifts as an idea has been brewing for years, but in 2020, we decided to make it a reality. In early May, we recognized that many businesses and makers were losing income due to store closures, show cancellations, and event postponements. Small business owners depend on each other, and we wanted to help. We wanted to be part of the solution, not just a bystander to the effects of COVID-19 on local businesses. After a quick online meeting to brainstorm names, buy the domains, get the social media handles, and handle some legal work, Indiana Gifts was born.

In the fall of 2022, we were approached by the Boone County EDC and presented with the opportunity to open a retail storefront. After a very successful holiday season with a pop up on Main Street in Lebanon, we decided to make the courthouse square our permanent home in the spring of 2023. You can now shop Indiana Gifts in person AND online! Visit us at 101 E Main Street in the Heart of Lebanon, Indiana. 

This store is more than just a business to us. Indiana Gifts is a way for us to support fellow Hoosier business owners and continue our mission to create healthier, stronger communities and more jobs in Indiana. We know you have lots of shopping options, and we are honored you chose Indiana Gifts.
