About Us

Parkway Presents was started from a dream to honor my dad’s legacy.  He was an owner of Parkway Drugs, a small chain of boutique pharmacies, where I was lucky enough to work at different times of my life.  My dad taught me the true definition of customer service. My goal is to carry on this most important piece of running a business. We will help you find the perfect present by making the gift buying experience enjoyable.  

Our mission is to spark a child’s imagination and nurture developing minds by bringing families together through unplugged play. Being a former special education teacher and mother of two taught me the value of play and how it helps children grow. It became my goal to make learning fun through toys and games.  

From green toys and organic bath bombs to natural mineral make-up kits, we offer toys and gifts that are free of harmful chemicals.  We also offer personal shopping, custom goody bags, baby gift baskets, personalized merchandise, wish lists, complimentary gift wrap, and local delivery. We’re happy to ship your presents anywhere in the United States.

Come visit us at 3115 Dundee Road in Northbrook IL or browse our website and order online 24 hours a day.

Let’s find the perfect present!
