First of all, thank you for visiting my store, whether online or in person. Roarin Deals will be a feature where I will introduce new product offerings, Flash sales, and gift suggestions. But first, a little about TigerEye Gift Shop.
The first question everyone asks is why the name? The tiger eye meaning is willpower, determination and motivation, both mentally and physically. A Tiger’s eye is symbolic of moving us towards our highest state. My mother and grandmother were always big on superstition and symbolism. When creating the gift shop, I asked my mom for ideas and TigerEye stuck as a way to honor both my mom and my late grandmother. It also holds special meaning as I, and many others, have overcome many obstacles put in our way, (Covid-19 just the latest example) and got through it with sheer willpower, determination and motivation, both mentally and physically.
The second question is why a gift shop? This past Christmas, I vowed to shop local and support small business. Target and Wal-Mart are always crowded, ordering off Amazon seems like the easy way out, and I always like to buy a gift that’s unique, different and thoughtful. I went to numerous stores and just couldn’t find anything to meet my criteria. I have learned that if I am having an issue, many others might be having the same issue as well. I hope the Gift Shop can solve that problem. I know it will for me.
The last, most popular question- what do you sell? I try to have something for everyone. Whether its grandma, dad, a new baby, or a teenager, I hope to have something anyone and everyone can enjoy. I also try to purchase from other small businesses throughout the United States. You may notice some items will say woman owned, small batch, eco-friendly, US made, and other values. I also realize not everyone has a big budget for some of those items and I offer value priced items as well for those that want to get something small like a craft, candy, small toy, or a card. Our best seller are our gift baskets. We can make any type of basket for any price range and occasion. Send us an email, text, or phone call and we will work with you to create a great, one of a kind gift. Our inventory will constantly change based on deals, availability and customer demand, so always check us out when searching for a gift.
A little about me, the owner. My name is Ronald Amore Jr and I live in Smithfield, RI with my 7 year old daughter Olivia and my father, Ron Sr. I was born and raised in Cranston, moved to Warwick after high school and then settled in Smithfield. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and own Amore Accounting Services while working for the Town of Smithfield in the Tax Collector’s office. I play volleyball, softball, and bowl (in my spare time). I am a die-hard Miami Dolphins fan but please do not hold that against me.
