Meet Present's Proprietors
Jim Daley and Jim Reynolds are happy to help make your gift shopping easier.
"The inspiration behind the store came, in part, from the thriving food culture he and Jim Reynolds witnessed during visits to the Bay Area throughout the years...those experiences helped formulate the idea of opening a one-stop shop that offered locally sourced foods and gifts...The store strives to offer more than just the traditional wicker gift basket for customers. Instead, they use the gift items such as colanders, mixing bowls and plates as the customized gift basket. The idea, Daley said, is creatively repurposing every element of the gift basket instead of being stuck with an empty wicker basket." - More in the Los Altos Town Crier - December 5, 2012
