Gift Gate is closing and it's like saying goodbye to our childhood

This is the saddest article we've ever written.

( We remember it like it was just yesterday. If you're a lot like us, your childhood probably consisted of exciting trips to Gift Gate as a "prize" whenever you did well at school or if you behaved when mommy told you to. You were rewarded with a cool new pencil case, but it couldn't just be a basic pencil case, it had to be pink and with buttons that reveal secret compartments!


Gift Gate used to be everyone's go-to destination for bags, lunch boxes, school supplies, and other gift items. It was every Sanrio fan's happy place because it was home to all of the Hello Kitty, My Melody, and Little Twin Stars-themed things!


But just like all good things, it must come to an end. And this month, we bid goodbye to a childhood staple where fond memories were made (insert scenes from your tantrums when mom wouldn't buy you everything you wanted from the store).




The first (and last) Gift Gate store in Greenhills is closing their doors for good on May 31. They're having a Closing Out: Everything Must Go Sale but no discount can make our sadness go away. 


We just want to take this time to say: Hello Kitty is now Bye-Bye Kitty (locally, at least). Cue the tears.

Tell us your #feels!
