We are those who embrace the spirit of giving. We spend more time shopping for others than we do for ourselves. We are those who truly believe that it is “the thought that counts”. We love the smiles and hugs that come from giving with our hearts in times of celebration, from being thoughtful when it isn’t expected.

We are givers and we aspire to help you be the best giver you can be.


We are seekers in all aspects of life – adventure, ideas, happiness, memories – and gifts. We bring our thirst and passion for exploration to create a unique marketplace for gifts.

We believe that thoughtful products make thoughtful gifts. At Shop Spare Parts, we seek thoughtful, exceptional, one-of-a-kind products – from independent designers, artisans, handicraft makers, and trusted brands from around the world – that make the best gifts.



We scour the globe to find high quality, unique, and uncommon products that make great gifts for every occasion and relationship in your life. Our editors hand-pick gift ideas to make sure that we have an awesome and uncommon mix of ideas for you to choose from.

We’re just getting started and our work will never be done. We love what we do and hope you’ll check back to see what’s new whenever you need gift ideas, inspiration or advice.


We’ve taken the learning technology used by movie and music recommendation sites and adapted it specifically for gift shopping so that what you see gets better and better with each visit.

Our recommendation system gets better and better as our community grows. We are driven by our community ….. that’s YOU! Together we are making Shop Spare Parts the best gift giving resource EVER!



The truth is that great gifts make everyone happy and they make our relationships stronger.

For thousands of years, gift giving has been an integral part of human life, but this remarkable practice is at risk. Let’s face it, everyone is super busy and no matter how much you care you sometimes just can’t find the time or the right gift to give. We don’t want to see gift giving disappear or devolve because of our busy schedules. In fact, we feel it’s more needed today than ever!

We’re here to be your secret sauce; to help make it simple and fun for you to be the incredibly thoughtful person that you know you are.


Creativity is at an all-time high. But it’s increasingly tougher for independent designers to compete against large corporations, gain marketshare, and reach people who care about their products.

We are helping connect those creative makers with creative givers to keep the inspiring cycle of creativity barreling full-speed ahead. We can’t wait to see what’s next!


Know of an amazing gift or two or three? Have a favorite small shop or maker you want us to feature? If you have a passion for seeking and finding amazing gift ideas, or even know of one brilliant gift that you don’t see on Gift Advisor, we want to hear about it.

Make as many recommendations as you’d like and we’ll do our best to put them up!
