From gardening tools and shaving essentials to gourmet edibles like Bee Raw Honey and filet mignon beef jerky, this Coolidge Corner shop is stocked with all kinds of finds from small-batch makers. Owner April Gabriel’s methodology is simple: Find the best and source it as close to home as possible. When she does go farther afield—for Moroccan baskets, say, or Mexican textiles—the goods always boast exquisite craftsmanship and interesting stories, all the makings of a great gift.
