Michaelangelo of Greenwich, located at 410 Greenwich Ave, is busy year round. The store, which is coming up on its 40th anniversary, is a reliable source for thoughtful personalized gifts.

The owners, Michael and Gail Papa, specialize in elegant but useful sterling silver gifts that can be monogrammed or otherwise personalized, all at affordable prices.

Engraving is done on premises and the turnaround is quick. This week Michael and Gail shared some of their popular holiday gift ideas.

Mike said the jewelry boxes are often purchased by husbands for their wives. Monograms can be engraved on a plaque on the top of the box, and a message engraved inside the box.

Also popular are the sterling silver lockets, which open to reveal a spot for a photo. The  lockets can be engraved in a variety of type styles.

Engraved Christmas ornaments are also popular. There are a series of ornaments with scenes from Greenwich on one side, and a plaque on the back that can be engraved with the year or other message.

There are ornaments in holiday shapes that can be engraved with milestones of the year or a person’s name or initials. The sky’s the limit.

“It could be the first Christmas for the baby and the year, or Bobby got into college and the year, or Susie got her driver’s license and the year,” Mike said, adding that ornaments are perfect keepsakes. “We have customers who have us engrave an ornament every year and then when their child turns 21 and leaves the house, they have 21 ornaments to take with them.”

Michaelangelo is an independent, family owned business on the Avenue for almost 40 years. Their business has thrived because they are reliable and dependable, and stand by their work.

Greenwich holiday ornaments have illustrations on one side and engraving of 2018 on the other. A perfect holiday gift.
