Gifted Hands Boutique: unique mother's day gifts

Mother's Day is around the corner, and if you haven't gotten a gift yet, we have the perfect place to tell you about.

It's called Gifted Hands Boutique, and it's in Scottsdale.

The store is part of the non-profit, Arizona Centers for Comprehensive Education and Life Skills.

"We have students and adults with autism and other developmental disabilities," said Connie Laird.

Laird is the executive director of ACCEL. She said about 350 students with special needs either work at the boutique or spend time creating the products that are for sale.

"We do wonderful crosses that our students tile and we have handmade cards," said Laird.

Laird says it's a one of a kind shop, and a win-win for everyone involved.

"It's particularly wonderful to see their sense of well-being when they know that their hard work is appreciated by the public," she said.

She said because they are a non-profit, they do not charge sales tax.

All the proceeds raised go back to the non-profit.

The store is having a 25% off sale on certain items for mother's day until 7 p.m. Wednesday. They are located at the northwest corner of Scottsdale and Indian Bend.
