When I was doing some shopping in Minneapolis last week, I made a trip to a mall that I hadn't been to in years; everything had changed. I almost felt like a kid in a candy store because I was in awe of all these new stores that I'd never heard of before; I had to visit them all.

One of them was BoxLunch. Sounds like a nice place to get a sandwich, chips and a cookie, wrapped in wax paper; tucked nicely in a flimsy cardboard box, doesn't it?

It's not. It's better. Remember the store Spencer Gifts? It's like that, but better. It's the perfect place to get any kind of gift for any kind of person, and for any kind of occasion. Think ties, socks, shot glasses, graphic tees, clothes, PJs, you name it.

The best part is, when you make a purchase of $10 or more, they help provide a meal for a person in need; and according to WIFR, BoxLunch is coming to the CherryVale Mall, just in time for the holidays- the store opens this Wednesday
