It’s the holiday season, so what better time than now to shop local! While we couldn’t include all of the amazing local shops you can find in our area – there are too many! – we’ve rounded up a variety of spots that will check off everyone on your list. (And make sure to follow us on social media @bestofwinston for our curated gift guides!)
Southern Home & Kitchen
Southern Home & Kitchen is the place to go for your mom, neighbor, chef-friend, or hostess gifts. You can always find a new kitchen gadget or pretty platter for that person who’s hard to shop for, and with their wide range of price points for gift-y items, it’s easy to stock up on last-minute gifts like candles, matches, and soaps. Get them to gift wrap a couple of items so you’re always ready with a present!
Fiddle & Fig
With trendy seasonal decor and classic pieces for your home, Fiddle & Fig is where you should head for college students and recent grads, friends, and in-laws. Everyone loves beautiful items at the holidays, so you can’t go wrong with a new ornament, decorative candles, faux trees, or a classic white pitcher.
If you need to wow a woman on your list, Hive is the place for you. With upscale fashion, art, and accessories, Hive has something for the woman who has everything. Don’t miss their elegant bar accessories and cocktail table books.
Evelyn Rose Boutique
What about something to impress teens or fashionistas? Hit Evelyn Rose. They offer trendy, affordable clothing and accessories. Don’t be shy about asking their super-friendly staff for help in selecting the right gift.
Rolly’s Baby Boutique
Head to Rolly’s if you need a gift for a new parent or child; they carry adorable clothing plus a selection of toys and books for younger children. And make sure you get them to gift-wrap your presents – they make the prettiest bows!
Camel City Goods
Here’s our go-to place for the men in our lives. Buy a soft Camel City Goods shirt or one of their mugs with a new graphic design, and we guarantee your gift will actually be used. Shop at Camel City Goods for your Wake Forest or UNCSA fan, too; they carry a wide range of items bearing the schools’ logos.
If you want something unique and one-of-a-kind, Piedmont Craftsmen offers a wide range of art for sale. For the person who appreciates handcrafted items, you can find everything from jewelry to paintings here.
Mast General Store
While Mast General Store is a local chain, it still makes it on our list for their commitment to the local community. We love their desire to reinvigorate downtown shopping areas, so make it a point to shop downtown at Mast General Store this holiday. You’ll find gifts for outdoor enthusiasts, kids, and grandparents here.
