Hello World Est. 2000
Welcome to Philly's favorite gift shop!

Hello World began in Philadelphia as a neighborhood gift shop in 2000.
Now, 20 lovely years later, Hello World has become more than just your go-to gift shop. We have flourished into a lifestyle store that offers furniture, home decor. and wearable accessories.
In 2014, Hello World moved to University City to become the versatile lifestyle store it is today. In addition to gifts, Hello World focuses on contempo design with hints of mid-20th century design and a danish modern aesthetic.
