Olives & Grace - Best Gifts, Boston Magazine's Best of Boston

Transient

In keeping with her whimsical shop’s slogan, “a curtsy to the makers,” owner Sofi Madison can tell you the tale behind each small-batch snack, bracelet, necktie, and bar of soap she sells. Get this knowledge to go with a personalized box—you pick the products, and Madison will wrap and package them for a present with meaning. Apparently, this hands-on approach has resonated with shoppers: Olives & Grace recently moved from its wee Pembroke Street digs to a more prominent space on Tremont Street.
