Just Next Door is your quintessential neighborhood shop. It began over thirty years ago when the original owner couldn’t find decent greeting cards in this Boston suburb. She had been home raising her children for a number of years and it was time to try a new venture. The name Just Next Door was to let her children know that mom was off to work but only just next door to home and school. The shops has expanded twice over the years and now sells gifts, accessories, toys and of course greeting cards. The shops second and current owner worked at Just Next Door summers and vacations during college and stuck with it on weekends after college while working in social service field. She was always happiest back at the shop only two blocks from where she grew up. So after a few years of tutelage she bought the store. Today we retain that neighborhood feel and service our customers like the neighbors and friends that they are.

Chantyl, September 22, 2018

A great local shop! I wandered around amazed at the variety and uniqueness of so many items. The atmosphere was welcoming and friendly and the owner was helpful. I decided on a few items, but will definitely be back to purchase other gifts I saw! Thanks to Nift for helping me find Just Next Door!

Michelle, September 17, 2018

Wonderful store! Highly recommend!

Ellen, September 9, 2018

Nice little store! I like birthday cards that are off the beaten track- something pretty, or thoughtful, rather than the usual Hallmark cards with age jokes. Just Next Door has a nice selection of cards, a mix of bigger name companies and local artists. Thanks, Nift, I would never have found them on my own.

J., September 1, 2018

Great array of items and cards for sale.

Jean, August 24, 2018


Aravinda, August 17, 2018

P, August 9, 2018

A wonderful store with such lovely gifts for kids (and grownups as well!) The owner was helpful, knowledgeable and very sweet.

Omer, July 18, 2018

I think it’s fantastic that we have a chance to experience a business we were not aware of previously, it allows us to go back and enjoy it more in the future.

Hassina, July 1, 2018

What a charming neighborhood store! The service was very friendly and helpful. They even provided free "wrapping" with their shopping bag with tissues and bows. Loved that they had a little bit of everything so you don't need to go to the mall. They also had a great card selection. Although we were not looking for toys, there was a large side room ( about a third of the main one) that was devoted to gifts for little ones. The quality and uniqueness was also respectable. Highly recommend overall.

Tu, June 17, 2018

plenty of cool and unique gift ideas. kids toys too. excellent greeting card selection too! owner/cashier was pleasant too. we'll be back for sure.

Stephanie, April 2, 2018

What a fun and interesting place to shop. I browsed through the store for almost an hour and then decided on several things to purchase. While I was browsing, I was listening to a few people discuss things they liked there and that brought even more gift ideas to my attention. I ended up purchasing three really nice cards and three gift items. I got myself to resist buying some really great looking chocolate, as I didn’t really need the calories. Perhaps next time. Service was excellent.

Merrill, February 28, 2018

Great place for gifts!

Jennifer, February 24, 2018
