Shop Local This Holiday Season

With holiday shoppers bustling around town trying to track down the perfect gift for each of their loved ones, we know that everyone is on the hunt for the best Christmas presents Fort Worth has to offer. While it might be easy to think big when coming up with gift ideas, we think you should think small this holiday season. Well, small business anyway.

This city is full of great small businesses that show off our community’s individual personality. So before running to the chain stores, check out a few of the potential gifts waiting to be enjoyed at local Fort Worth boutiques. 

Because of their comfortable look and fun patterns, blanket scarves have become a staple this fall season. Not only do they make great personal wardrobe additions but also they can be great gifts for all of the stylish girls in your life. If you are looking for different plaid or solid scarves, check out Retrospection near TCU’s campus. These comfy accessories are available at $28.95.  

Another great gift idea that women will love receiving this holiday season is jewelry. Whether it is diamonds or beads, jewelry is always a winner. If you are looking for some statement pieces to give away, or keep for yourself this holiday, check out Coyote Urban Boutique’s Karen London Jewelry collection. The pictured items range $59 - $86.

Speaking of beads, lengthy strands of beads with tassels have taken over jewelry trends over the past few months. So necklaces, like these found at Beehive, will impress even the trendiest of your friends. And because there are so many options, there is always another strand that could have your name written all over it.

For the home décor lover, try shopping at a local boutique like Maven. These fun home accessories pop in any room they are placed in. Or for your wine-loving friends, check out these Agate Stone Wine Stoppers that are also available at Maven. Each decorative barware accessory is ornate with its beautiful, natural shape. What’s a better way to remind your friends just how unique of a treasure they are in your life?

So remember, shop small this holiday season. With gift ideas like these, there is no reason to go to the chain stores this December!
