Changing Tides Gifts was so named for the stylish, chic, and upscale merchandise that comes in, goes out, and changes like the tides of our awe inspiring ocean. We feature both nautical and coastal merchandise. Many unique and one of a kind items have been custom made for us, and can be found exclusively in our shop.

The staff at Changing Tides Gifts all share the love of the Cape Ann shores. We all know the secret of how the ocean calms the soul, soothes and inspires us. Providing ever-changing displays, we inspire our customers to bring the peaceful waves and sunny beaches into their homes and to share the gift of our beautiful Cape Ann with others by giving gifts to those who are not as fortunate to live by the sea.
