Kids to Love Bowtique opens Nov. 18 at Bridge Street Towne Center

HUNTSVILLE — The Kids to Love Bowtique will open Nov. 18 at Bridge Street Town Centre and be ready to wrap your presents this holiday season!

The Bowtique will open at 5 p.m. Nov. 18, the same night Bridge Street lights its 45-foot Christmas tree. The Bowtique is located across from Cinemark and Texas de Brazil.

“Wrapping can be one of the more stressful parts of getting ready for a family Christmas,” said Kids to Love Founder and CEO Lee Marshall. “You can check that off your list by letting Kids to Love wrap your gifts and knowing what you pay for your wrapped gifts goes directly to helping children in foster care.”

In addition to gift wrapping services, Kids to Love merchandise will also be for sale at the Bowtique. T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats and more are available in a variety of styles.

Money from merchandise sales and gift wrapping directly benefits Kids to Love’s programs, including Christmas For the Kids. By the time Christmas is over, Kids to Love will have filled wishlists of toys, clothing and more for children in 23 counties in Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi.

You can also help fill a wishlist for a child in foster care when you shop. Christmas trees full of paper ornaments that have children’s wishes on them will be in the Bowtique and at participating Bridge Street stores.

Take an ornament, buy the item written on the ornament, and bring it back to the location you took the ornament from. Those items will go to the Kids to Love warehouse and then under a Christmas tree for a child in foster care. ABC Toys, Athleta, Barnes & Noble, Belk, Kendra Scott and Old Navy will have trees full of ornaments for children. Belk and Barnes & Noble trees are located in their respective children’s departments.

Trees with ornaments are also located at Jack’s Restaurants, Regions Bank locations and other places across North Alabama. A map of participating locations can be found at kidstolove.org.

The Bowtique’s hours of operation are:

• Sundays 1-5 p.m.
• Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
• Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m.-7 p.m.

The Bowtique will close for the season at noon on Dec. 24.
