Who We Are
The goal of The Perfect Gift is to provide an experience that is more than just shopping — it’s about visiting a hometown store in an atmosphere that makes visitors feel joyful, appreciated, and a part of history. Each member of The Perfect Gift staff is committed to provide thoughtful, personalized service to everyone who enters the store. We believe that each person should leave our store feeling thrilled with their shopping experience and intending to return.
Meet the Owner
Each fall, Deborah’s store offers “The Gratitude Tree”, in conjunction with a local Clarence Center Family. Community members complete and hang a tag with what they are grateful for. During the holidays, it converts into “The Giving Tree” where visitors take an angel tag to help a person in need. This past year, over 150 local WNY families received holiday gifts. Additionally, the storefront previously housed a Women’s Bible Study, which has grown to over 100 women, representing dozens of churches across Buffalo.
Deborah is a founding member of the Meet in the Center Merchants Association which recently was awarded Organization by the Local Business Chamber. She is a recipient of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce President’s Award and also received the Clarence Chamber of Commerce Young Leader Award, Women Who Move the City award from BBBS Erie County Chapter, The Commedation Award from NYS Senator for her service to community , and the Erie County Legislation Small Business Recognition award for The Perfect Gift. She resides with her family in Clarence Center, NY.
