Redesigning the Gift Industry: Blue Q

by Rainy Day | | 0 comments

Alright, so maybe Blue Q products are just plain fun... That's a big part of why we love carrying them. Gone are the days when gift shops need only be sentimental and saccharine. We live in a world where cats, quips, and jokes are a valuable gift currency. 

At Rainy Day we cater towards every occasion - Do you have a friend who loves cats and cat costumes... and cat paraphernalia? Sure you do!

Maybe you need socks that rock your naturally sarcastic flare! We have you covered!

Blue Q was started by two brother right across the water, in Boston. Seth and Mitch Nash launched their company in 1988 with their first ever product, the "FlatCat", a cardboard cut out of a cat marketed as the "Perfect Pet." Breaking the cardinal rule of gift companies, only selling a single product, Blue Q became a phenomena in the gift world. 

Over 27 years Blue Q has grown and moved to Western Mass. They've made their mark with unforgettable products and a unwavering sense of humor.

We have loads of their products in the store, year round - from quirky socks to vivacious totes and life changing breath sprays. Come on by!

Also, check out the site, we've put up a few of our favorites to deliver right to your door!
