About Us

We are a family-owned gift and bookstore since 1997. Our first shop in Arlington, MA has been known since the beginning as a well-curated destination for unique, beautiful, eclectic, and fun gifts for all.

Books were first introduced into our offerings at the beginning of the 2000s as an add-on to baby and kid’s gifts. As we watched our wee customers grow, so did our selection of books to satisfy their age appropriate interests. Maxima now offers a full range of all genres for all age groups.

After a successful pop-up venture in Lexington, MA in 2019, the wife & husband team decided to expand and open a permanent location, this time a bookstore. In September of 2021, Maxima Book Center in Lexington, MA was born!
