Host-ess Gifts & Housewarmings: Hope & Stetson, Old Saybrook


Hope & Stetson, of Mystic and West Hartford, is turning into a mini locally-owned chainlet and just opened an adorable offshoot in Old Saybrook. This one is not their usual mix of women’s jeans, tees, and cashmere, but a gift store that will likely become your go-to. You’ll find piles of this genius product: a canvas sack filled with sweet items geared to baby, gal pal, or significant other, and topped with a spray of dried flowers. The grab-and-go gifts range in price from $14 to $48, and you may want to fill your gift closet with a bunch, so you’ll never find yourself empty-handed!

Also available are myriad handy items ready to be monogrammed in-house, from adorable baby bloomers and canvas totes to cosmetic bags and linen cocktail napkins. You’ll find a few perfect goodies for Father’s Day, too.

40 Elm Street in Old Saybrook
