When you think of an owl, what comes to mind? Wisdom, mystery and a sense of wonder? Owls are a popular but sometimes misunderstood bird. They are beautiful creatures, and it’s easy to find decorations and other items with their images on them. Here are a few of our favorite owl-themed gifts, along with some interesting facts about these nocturnal animals.
The holiday season is fast approaching, and what better way to spend it than at The Woods Gifts enjoying time with Santa and his reindeer, a special book signing, story-telling, gourmet food demonstrations and more!

We ask that everyone bring a new and unwrapped toy for Toys for Tots, no matter which location you go to.
At The Woods, our inventory of gifts, clothing, jewelry and other items changes on a regular basis. We always love to share our newest products with our customers, so we thought we would take the time to highlight some of our newest (and favorite!) Second Nature by Hand signs. Woodbury and our other locations carry them and so come by to see what we have in stock!

Whether that cabin is near the woods, lake or both doesn’t matter.
