About Us

The Need

While living in Irvington for several years and not able to find a local shop to even purchase a greeting card, we knew this was the time, and most definitely, the need, to bring a Gift Shop to our beloved historic neighborhood.  Our super fun neighborly gift shop Indianapolis is a staple within the Irvington community .  Stop in and find out more about our place in Indy.


Black Sheep Gifts is designed with an eclectic flair offering everything from unique Baby items and Toys to Pet goods, Art, Jewelry, Kitchen and Baking, Home Decor, Wine & Cocktail accessories, Clothing, Games for all ages, Candles,  Books, Seasonal Gifts, Holiday Decor, and more.  


"From cradle to grave, we've got you covered!" 


~ Our desire is for the store to be enjoyable for everyone ~ No matter what age!

We knew if we placed a great gift shop within our neighborhood, the "Irvingtonians" would love it and so would Indianapolis folks

"I've always said I was the black sheep of the family, joking that there aren't even any white sheep there anyway!  

We're just a herd of black sheep 

and a few gray!"

Charming Shop

"Stopped in tonight for the first time. 

Great store, wonderful people, and an eclectic mix of things you didn't know you needed until you saw it!

I highly recommend Black Sheep Gifts.  If you live in central Indiana, 

if you don't live here ... Call in sick and make it a day trip!  You'll be pleased."

- Joseph G, Indy


"I love having such a fun shop in my neighborhood.  

The quality & selection of merchandise is great!   

And I can walk there!"
