NEO Gift Studio, for all your gifting essentials

2017 Gift Guide

Since it opened in 1982, NEO Gift Studio has been owned and operated by sisters, Joan and Joyce Zoerb. Their new location, which opened this summer, is located at the corner of Elmwood and Delavan, in what the sister’s say is their, “fourth and last move.”

There are only a handful of shops in Buffalo that can say they have been in business for 35 years, “we are proud that we have helped generations of Buffalonians with their gift giving needs. It’s great to see our long-time customers, who came in as children with their families, now bring their own children into the shop.” said Joan.

NEO Gift Studio is a one-stop-shop for all your gift giving essentials, Joan and Joyce select all the products and lines, and were one of the first stores to carry their friend, Michael Aram’s Collections. Joan added that “Michael’s collection is very popular as it has both a classic and contemporary feel,” from tableware to furniture, the collections include luxuriously soft “curly sheepskin” pillows as well as metallic frames, platters, and bowls, and which often includes natural decorations and rustic wood accents. Michael’s collections are said to have a “handmade quality” which allows it to “shift beautifully between the realm of fine and decorative art.”

Each item in the store is lovingly grouped and arranged by Joyce who is responsible for product displays.The shop stocks myriad items ranging from edibles like gourmet gummies or toffee, to hats, scarves, bags, Kids & Babies items, books, toys, kitchen accessories, as well as, jewelry, cards, bath products, candles, lotions, and more.. As always, there is so much to choose from, all of which make fabulous gifts. “We try to touch all the senses,” says Joan. From lovely candles and soaps, to the cutest, coziest slippers, from the Lemon Collection, they carry everything you could think of.

Neo’s signature gift wrapping is an added bonus, as well as their unique gift card boxes that feature vignettes made with of wood cutouts. Which the sister’s make themselves every year. Joan added that their business model is simple, “We try to stock things that make you smile.”

And they truly do, NEO gift studio is a sensory experience, that will leave the gift giver and receiver feeling great.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.

    Looks good. Definitely stopping by.

  • mediumriser

    No parking go to the mall

    • Greg Insley

      Screw the mall. Support your local, indie businesses. Take the bus.

      • mediumriser

        screw that over priced items an who wants to ride the getto bus

        • Captain Picard

          Actually, I recently rode the bus down Hertel Ave and it was cleaner and better-functioning than my car. I’m not sure how you’d consider that experience “ghetto” unless of course what you meant was that the patrons of the bus are “ghetto.”

          Oh, wait…that’s exactly what you meant.

      • nuvaux

        Take which bus, from where to where?? The NFTA bus “service” is a skeletal nod at urban transport, solely for providing political jobs while pretending to serve the poor and minorities.

      parking? at the mall? at Christmas? HAHhahahahaha…

    • MikeSoBo

      Just park at ETS. They do not mind

      • breckenridge

        It seems there has been a lot of beef with ETS not wanting non-customers in their lot, specifically from JT’s. I didn’t know that when you buy property that includes a parking lot you are obliged to provide free parking to everyone.

        There is always plenty of parking available on Bidwell around the corner.

    • Kevin Ryan

      One of Buffalo’s finest..Thanks for the input…have fun at the mall

  • nuvaux

    I’ve bought there in the past, but never again – only because they chose to help the ruination of Elmwood by renting in that building.

  • breckenridge

    I remember when Neo used to be in the space now occupied by Rick Cycle Shop on Allen St in the early 90s. Cool store.
