Giving gifts that inspire hope and healing

Whether you are looking for a thoughtful toy for a child, a great gift for a new mom, or something special for a newborn, look no further than Sprout Gift Co.

Located in the lobby area on the main floor of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital. Sprout Gift Co. carries a wide selection of toys, clothing, jewelry, home décor, treats and other fantastic gift ideas. The gift shop opened on Sept. 29, when the 176-bed hospital opened its doors to patients for the first time.

The best part is the proceeds from your Sprout Gift Co. purchase go directly to support Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.

“Not only does this store provide great gift options for someone in hospital, but the proceeds from your purchase are truly making a difference in the lives of Saskatchewan families,” said Brynn Boback-Lane, President and CEO of Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation. “In this next chapter of maternal and pediatric care, these proceeds will help provide world-class equipment, innovation, and family-centred care, ensuring a healthier future for our children and families.”

Hillberg & Berk has designed a custom necklace for the hospital gift shop, offering Saskatchewan mothers a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry. The delicate, silver necklace is engraved on one side with the words “always in my heart,” while the other side features the logos of Hillberg & Berk and Jim Pattison Children’s Hospital Foundation.

To ensure you have the best shopping experience, Sprout Gift Co. is staffed with one full-time manager, two part-time associates and many hardworking volunteers.

“We are more than just a gift shop; we are a shopping destination. There is something here for everyone here, and it’s a good feeling because you know your purchase is able to make a big impact with all the proceeds going to the Foundation,” said Caitlin Ballard, Sprout Gift Co. manager.

Sprout Gift Co. is open seven days a week or you can visit the online shop. You can place an order online and have it delivered right to a patient’s room the same day at no extra cost. Bedside deliveries run every hour, starting an hour after opening and ending an hour before closing.

The gift shop is open Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
