"A snow globe evokes some cherished encounter with nature. Pictures on a deck of cards remind us of the people we hold dear. A saying on a coffee cup gets us thinking about some of the maxims that have guided our life. In this warm hearted, charming book Peter Lovenheim asks his readers to draw upon the ordinary offerings of the gift shop--the key chains, stuffed animals, tote bags, scented candles--to enhance and deepen their memories--and their gratitude. And though it won't take them long to finish the book, it may be a while before they exit the gift shop." - Judith Viorst, Bestselling author Necessary Losses and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

"You will savor this clever book, an interactive exercise that prods you to reflect on the abundance in your life. Peter Lovenheim's wisdom and guidance illuminate the power of the choices we make and remind us it's never too late to stock our personal 'gift shops' with people and experiences that will bring enduring happiness." - Gina Vild, co-author, The Two Most Important Days: How to Find your Purpose and Live a Happier, Healthier Life

Peter Lovenheim's Gift Shop of Gratitude works both as a wonderful reminder to cherish the people, events, and places that impacted our lives and as a workbook that encourages us to remember and honor them. Peter has become one of my bobbleheads. - Bill Creed, Award-Winning Documentary Film Editor and Producer
Like a special friend, Peter Lovenheim slips in the side door of our mind to gently and humorously guide us--using familiar gift shop items as prompts--to recall the treasured moments, dearest friends, and favorite places that have made our lives richer and more meaningful. - Elaine Heveron, Author Notes from Paradise
"In his uniquely warm style, Peter Lovenheim asks us to take a break from the trials and tribulations of life so we can recapture some of the things that have enriched us. The gifts from our past are too often forgotten, but as parts of the mosaic that defines us, they deserve an occasional visit. We all need to visit our own unique gift shop of treasured memories!"-- Charles P. McDowell, author Final Moments: Conversations with the Angel of Death"Peter Lovenheim has provided a lasting gift. This book will lift your spirits by helping you develop and nurture the vital attributes of appreciation and gratitude." - Tom Hamburger, former staff writer at The Washington Post
