Holiday Shopping {Downtown Naperville}

This holiday season keep your shopping local, which isn’t always an easy task if you have some challenging recipients. To make it easier for you, I’ve assembled a fabulous list of go to places for your gifts.

1. Twist Boutique
Of course I have to start with Twist, with their $30 and under gift table you’re sure to pick up some goodies for the trendies on your list. With scarves, Thymes candles, and Love and Toast beauty products you can stock up on a lot of gifts without blowing your budget on the first shop.
Perk: they offer gift wrap!

2. M2 Boutique
I have trouble going to M2 and walking out without a purchase, they have items for the jewelry and accessory lovers on your list and then some! Hopefully they don’t read this, but I picked up an awesome memory book at M2 for my sister’s boyfriend where he can stick the tickets and pictures of concerts he goes to, and a pair of earrings for my sister!

3. Bella Caley
Bella Caley is a great gift destination, with candles, home goods, and Mila Rose head bands by local designer Melissa Lopez, you can knock out a lot of items on your list. They offer items for a mixed clientele- from your 13 year old niece who has a love for extravagance to your mother in law who has a love for elegance.

4. Saraboo Creek
Saraboo Creek is a great place to shop for those who love to decorate, because you’re able to custom make your own signs. With everything from butterflies to beer mugs you can create a sign tailored to the lucky recipient, they’ll be sure to love it.

5. Adagio Tea
For the tea lover in your life Adagio Tea is a great place to pick up gorgeous tea pots, mugs, and loose leaf teas that smell absolutely fabulous. Make sure to take a cup of tea to go to warm your hands while you finish shopping!

6. Twisted Olive
Twisted Olive is newer to downtown, and is a fun place to try olive oils and balsamic vinaigrette’s. The staff has been super helpful every time I’ve stepped through their door and you can even get beautifully wrapped gift baskets for the foodies in your life.

I promise you can find fabulous unique gifts in the locally owned shops in downtown Naperville, and you’ll be promoting the local economy. Bring your friends and make a day of it!

Happy Holidays!
