They offer a plethora of unique and beautiful gifts from men’s and women’s clothing to jewelry, holiday decorations, and greeting cards. The real appeal of Zanzibar, though, comes from their extensive inventory of soaps and bath and body products, and with a slogan like “Romancing Your Senses,” how could it not be? Zanzibar carries products from around the world, most notably a line from London’s Crabtree & Evelyn, a company specializing in hand lotions, body gels, and fragrances. Zanzibar also stocks an assortment of American-made products such as a line of women’s socks from Sox Trot, stylish handbags and purses from Danny K., and glass and crystal jewelry from Devi Jewellers.

When listening to customers of Zanzibar talk about the store, its charms are really highlighted. “With the holidays coming up, I’ve been recommending Zanzibar more and more to friends looking to find gifts,” one customer exclaimed when asked what about the store draws them in. “It’s a really great place to find lotions.
