It’s getting down to the wire…. You know what we’re talking about! The Christmas shopping rush is far from over, though the days are getting shorter and the time is closing in on us all. When it comes to holiday shopping, it always seems that there’s obligation attached to the season – and that makes visiting the shops and malls and stores around Houston no fun at all.However, we here at Alta City West have a bit of a different perspective. We think holiday shopping should be a joy – especially when shopping at local spots here in Houston. Boutiques, local businesses, neighborhood vendors, and places all over our city are celebrating the season, so let’s get in on that. Here are some of our favorite places on our shopping list this Christmas season. Check that list twice before checking out!
The Galleria. With local vendors and large shopping outlets alike, this is your one-stop-shop in our area for completing your holiday shopping list. Whether you’re looking for cool style, quirky fashion, health and beauty products, or even gift cards, you’ve got somewhere to shop for someone you love.
French Cuff Boutique and Karma Couture Boutique, two of our favorite clothing boutiques have many options for the fashion icons in your life. From accessories to main eye-catchers, you’ll find something “fitting” for the season. See what we did there?
The Monogram Shop is one of the premier places in this area to get personalized gifts with a local touch. Engravings, thoughtful gifts, and individual, personalized knick-knacks for friends and family in your life have never looked this good. And this holiday season, the people you’re buying for are sure to feel loved. Isn’t it great what you find when you shop local?!
Did we miss a spot you love? Let us know, and we’ll be sure to stop by before the holiday rush is completely over… and then we’ll post about it, too! Happy holidays, family and friends!
