Laguna Trends Uptown is an over priced small cards and gifts store located in a busy shopping center with minimal, hard to get to parking. The wrapping paper sold in this store reminds me of the over priced, expensive, too good to rip over wrapping paper that the kids sell in the elementary schools, and the gifts in the store are much the same way, over priced, simple little items like picture frames that are a bit fancier than normal and cost a lot more than the discount stores. They have a large selection of gift bags, but they are also over priced, no discount store prices will be found in this place. Their card selection is disappointing at best, and I lean more towards calling this a gift store rather than a card store for that very reason. The best part about this store is the number of unique writing journals they sell. You can get a journal with just about any theme you can imagine in this store, and fancy pens to go along with them to. If you need a unique gift for someone, then this is the place to go, but if you are looking for a simple everyday item, then I would go to a discount store, the quality is not much different, but the prices sure are higher. The staff is really outgoing, friendly, and sophisticated. They are great ?gift shoppers? and they can help you find a gift for just about anyone based on male, female, boy, girl, age, and occasion. The staff really likes helping you seek out the perfect gift, and you can see the satisfaction in their faces when they help. Unlike some stores in San Diego, the employees speak good English, and they are really efficient on the cash registers. This means that if you are on the way to a birthday party, anniversary party, promotion party, or any other kind of party, you can run in, grab a gift, a bag, and fancy tissue paper, a quick card, and run out, toss the gift in the bag in the car, and look like you spent a lot of time picking out the perfect gift, but of course, you don?t know any last minute shoppers, do you? Lol.

PROS: You can grab a gift, card, and wrapping paper or gift bag all in one place
CONS: Selection is minimum, prices are expensive!

I don't usually shop for gifts for birthdays, but, when I am desperate I go to Laguna Trends. They have a large assortment of gifts from jewelry, picture frames, tons of candles, stationary, journals, wrapping paper, pre-built bows, decorated gift bags, little trinkets at the counter, holiday stuff when it's the holidays, and an endless supply of greeting cards. The employees are helpful when you need help choosing and are quick at the register. The gift shop also has a free gift wrapping service for when you are a poor gift wrapper.

The only downfall of this delightful shop is that it is located in a very busy shopping plaza. There is underground parking, however, that can be a nuisance.

This store is great for those last minute gift purchases. The prices tend to run a bit higher than similar stores in the area. The card selection is small but they have original products. Gift wrap is beautiful but pricey.
