Great gift ideas found right here
in Hinsdale

   Four-part series highlights one item from every store in the village for everyone on your list
   Finding the perfect gift for Mom or Grandpa or the neighbors down the block isn’t always an easy task.
   We’re here to help, with the first of a four-part series on holiday gift ideas from shops right here in Hinsdale.
   Friday’s Christmas Walk is a great time to check out these offerings, and be sure to schedule a shopping trip on a Saturday in December to take advantage of free parking at the meters and special activities for kids in Burlington Park. Of course, Grant and Gateway squares always offer free parking.
   These ideas are for specific items. Other styles, sizes, colors, scents and patterns are available in most cases. Many of the merchants listed with a specific item also carry gift certificates.
   For more information on stores and their locations and an interactive map, visit
   We hope you will take advantage of one of these good reasons to shop in Hinsdale. Don’t forget to tell them The Hinsdalean sent you.
