The choice is yours but in this particular post there would be two different magento templates for same theme store, one of them is paid and the other one is free of cost. Both of these templates are based on magento frame work and meet the requirement of latest version of magento.
EM Gift Shop:
CT Gift Shop Magento theme:This is the second theme and its FREE of price, as well as free of any follow up procedure like, sign-up etc. I saw so many free themes but not as much functional yet attractive as this one. The details of this theme as per its developer mentioned are, the CT gift shop magento template is designed for gift shop, souvenir, cake or food shop. The home page comes up with a Banner to display products and offers. The default welcome text of dummy store is editable from the Admin panel after installation. Also the featured products can be displayed on Home Page. Left Panel with accordion menu for Categories. The structure is quite efficient and the store is fully compatible to support the course of SEO. The above mentioned image represents the home page of this free magento template.
Its true that the price matters but in this era of advancement, people are also providing their amazing service without any price and the CT Gift shop template is the true evidence of it. No offense to EM Gift shop but I believe that you can get more customers with the trendy design of CT Gift Shop Magento template. Make sure you pick the right one whether it is the paid or its free. Also if you like to keep them both, then magento allows you to use multiple Magento Themes at the same time on same store, so go for both of them.http://www.creativethemes.net/themes/magento-themes/gift-shop.html
