Proud Mary, located at 1024 Great Plain Avenue in Needham, MA is a gift and fashion accessories boutique that offers a curated selection of gifts, accessories, greeting cards, home accents, personalized gift items and more. Our unique gift selections, knowledgeable staff and personalized services ensure a pleasant and stress-free gift giving experience.
The name Proud Mary reflects the essence of our boutique for many reasons. For one, as a tribute to our moms, Mary & Joanie, both of whom always put so much thought into picking out special gifts for their family. We thought about the joy it gave our moms to see us unwrap a gift they chose especially for us. To sum it up the writer of “Proud Mary” once defined his inspiration for the song as “a metaphor about leaving painful, stressful things behind for a more tranquil and meaningful life.”
Friends for over 25 years the seeds for Proud Mary were planted during a shopping spree on Martha’s Vineyard in 2009. Almost a decade later the time was right. We opened Proud Mary on September 15, 2018. Our hope is that everyone who walks through our doors feels that same happiness we do from running our little gift shop. We choose our products to reflect our motto that “Life is a Gift” and should be lived to the fullest!
