Shop Florida kitsch and much more at Warren's gifts in Clearwater

Not every shop owner can boast that they've been in business for 42 years, but Marcia Warren can. Her Clearwater boutique, Warren's, has been a favorite for decades, which she attributes to changing with the times while always keeping customers' needs first.

Warren's first opened as a flower shop but has evolved into a one-stop shop for gifts for everyone from the party hostess to her teens, a long-time friend or stylish grandparent. The store carries a variety of brands that Warren selects from markets across the country. Some like Brighton, with classic earrings ($30) and handbags ($250). Others like Brandon's Bourbon + Bowties and Kendra Scott, with chunky and colorful stone bracelets and necklaces.

A strong supporter of small-business owners, Warren handpicks a number of artists and makers to feature, many with a local touch, such as Ella B candles ($27.95) that come in scents like Florida Sunshine (citrus tones), Clearwater (a touch of jasmine) and Honeymoon Island (beachy). Customers can personalize their gift — from a phone case to a coffee mug, Tervis or wallet — and other items can be monogrammed in one business day for $10.

Warren also hosts events. In addition to fundraisers and trunk shows, the boutique has Gift Lunches where customers get a free meal so they can shop during their lunch break, and brand soirees — a customer wears an item from a brand like Simply Southern, and they get a gift to take home with their purchases.
