The holiday season is upon us and you may be wondering how you can shop locally this holiday season. Well, you’ve come to the right place. If you haven’t had a chance to walk the shops downtown, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to know that your town has everything you need. And don’t limit yourself to just the downtown area, gift options reach well beyond the Main Street corridor.
Share where you shop locally by commenting on this post!
Also, November 28 is Small Business Saturday. Join your fellow Woodlanders and shop local!
Here is a small sample how you can shop locally this holiday season.
Blue Wing Gallery
Blue Wing Gallery can frame any picture or art as a gift. If you have that person who is hard to buy for, think about framing a family photo or a sentimental piece of artwork for them. It’s a very thoughtful and personal gift to give.
Boxwood has a nursery and gift shop with a variety of possible gifts. Choose something from their nursery for a gardener, a serving platter or dishes for the cook in your life, or frames and decor for the home. They’ve recently created their holiday displays and plan to have fresh cut Christmas trees available.
The Gifted Penguin
If you’re looking for a unique and eclectic gift check out The Gifted Penguin. The list of possibilities is endless; garden art, ornaments, soaps, candles, and so much more. Plus, did you know that The Gifted Penguin has been serving Woodland for over 19 years? It’s worth a visit!
Poppies Gallery is filled with unique handcrafted items that are all made in the USA. One of a kind paintings, repurposed album covers that are now handbags and wallets, to locally made soaps are just a few examples of the wonderful gifts available at Poppies.
Sweet Potato Pie
Looking for one of a kind dresses, baby clothes and toys for both boys and girls? Sweet Potato Pie is the place to go. Find a unique toy, puzzle or board game for the kid in your life. Sweet Potato Pie also has a maternity gift registry that can definitely come in handy this holiday season.
Not only can you find the perfect kitchenware product at Well-Stocked, but did you know they carry a line of men’s grooming supplies, multiple lines of cutlery, cigar & accessories, and even specialty foods and spices? Well-Stocked is also the perfect place to create a gift basket. This Sunday, November 8th Well-Stocked and The White Barn is holding a gift registry from 12noon – 4:00 pm.
The White Barn carries more than just shabby chic furniture and decor. You can find jewelry, clothing, vintage signage, and candles. The White Barn also holds craft/painting classes that are frequently available and would be a great gift for a crafter or a do-it-yourselfer. This Sunday, November 8th Well-Stocked and The White Barn is holding a gift registry from 12noon – 4:00 pm.
Here’s a gift giving idea I didn’t think of until someone mentioned it to me. Rims from USA Tire are a great gift for the car enthusiast in your life. Friendly service and quality products are a bonus!
