Lynn Rose started the retail adventure with son, David Ferris back in 2007, and ever since the family owned shop opened, it’s been a hit. The store began as a new endeavor to showcase Lynn’s love of tready finds for a refreshing feel to the avenue. The merchandise leaves you with a smile on your face and some laughs. Gyftz carries a wide array of goods: everyday- to holiday home decor and necessities (soaps, dishware, bath towels, cocktail napkins, etc), gift ideas (for birthdays, hostess gifts, women, men, and little ones too), cards, coasters, bottled wines, snacks, collectibles (Jim Shore, Willow Tree, and Mudpie to name a few), local artists work, and one-of-kinds that you wouldn’t expect to find in a little tourist town! We are a part of the monthly Wine Walk that happens along Flagler Avenue at participating shops and restaurants. This wine event usually takes place every 4th Saturday of the month. During the monthly Wine Walk, Gyftz pours 5-6 different wine varietals to sample from. Each sampling costs 2-5 tickets a pour depending on the wine. The fan favorite is our signature Almond Champagne and the Peach Bellini! Aside from our events, our home decor is a sight to see, especially during the holiday seasons! Stop by sometime to say hello and come see why we are so proud of our little treasure trove that is GYFTZ!

Gyftz Shop Owners, Lynn & Brant (Mom & Dad)
Florida native, Lynn has an eye for design and has an idea of what the Florida locals love and look for in Gyftz. Brant has an extensive knowledge of wine and loves to stir up a good conversation about it during wine tastings and our monthly wine walk. These two are more the behind the scenes of our shop, however you can sometimes catch them during store events or our monthly wine walks.
Gyftz Store Manager, David and Shop Assistant, Michael
David being the Gyftz Store Manager he does a lot of business side of the shop: ordering, paper work (fun), working with our wholesale reps. However, David has learned a lot more then just the business side of running the shop. Between his mom, Lynn and Gyftz Son, Michael staging the shop throughout their time at Gyftz it has became natural for him to jump in too! Michael is a huge asset to our team. A lot of customers think David and Michael are father and son, because of how well they work together and their personalities. Michael calls him his work dad all the time now. Michael does the social media, marketing, shop decorating, the window displays , and so on. Both David and Michael work one on one with the customers, inventory, and sales to make the store Gyftz what it is: a great place to give Gyftz all year long!
