2022 Holiday Gift Guide
Baltimore is full of amazing small businesses to shop from this holiday season! Whether you're shopping for friends, family, or maybe... yourself, there's something for everyone. For the past few years, we've come up with a short list of some of our favorite local businesses to highlight during the holiday shopping season. We love doing it and we hope you find something nice!
The cutest selection of clothing and accessories in Hampden and Fells Point! We drop in every single time we're in the neighborhood. And, right now, you can find a bunch of great Black Friday and Small Business Saturday deals!
If you shop online or in-store, tell Brittany we sent you!! 🥰
Oooh, and btw, we'll be popping up in Hampden with Charm City on December 10th! More details to come!
Who doesn't love a book!? With two locations and a wide selection, there's something for everyone. And if you're in a hurry, gift cards are as a good a gift as any!
The pandemic changed how we work out, and we have been taking Ali's virtual classes every week since 2020. She has a good mix of strength, pilates, and yoga classes with the best playlists.
In Watermelon Sugar
In Watermelon Sugar has been a staple boutique in Baltimore, even before Harry Styles hit.. This is the ultimate one-stop shop for home gifting throughout the year, but when the winter holidays hit, there's no way you're leaving empty handed. From cookbooks to jewelry, and a million places in between, they have something for everyone on your list.
Our Saturday morning habit, or wait, I mean routine!
Legitimately one of our favorite places for an oat milk latte and a weekend planning session. Visit any of their Baltimore or Annapolis locations to fuel up for a day of shopping.
Rise Up Coffee
Organic coffee, breakfast burritos, and donuts in Annapolis and the Eastern Shore. Rise Up is our go-to spot and we'll drive really really far out of the way to fit it into the itinerary.
We thought about gatekeeping this one, but we couldn't do that to our friends behind the espresso machine, or all of you for that matter!
Cruise past graffiti alley or stroll through the Baltimore Museum of Art, but only after picking up a latte and some beans to-go! Last time we were here, we walked out with a bag full of cups from Milkweed Ceramics.
Mint + Major
Always on trend! With locations in Kenilworth and Ocean City, you can shop clothes and accessories at home or on vacation.
Check out "Try On Tuesday" at 12:00pm on Instagram!
Poppy & Stella
Baltimore's best shoe selection, no questions asked! They also have super cute clothes and accessories. Another one-stop shop! Located in Fells Point, right on the square. If you're in the area on a Saturday during the summer, be sure to snag a bite at the farmer's market right out front.
We recently took our first class at Pilates House and are obsessed! Pilates House has pilates, yoga, and strength classes. You can't go wrong gifting one of their class packages.
You can never go wrong with a candle as a gift, especially a KSM Candle. KSM Candle has an amazing soy candle collection with seasonal options. KSM Candle also offers candle making classes, and we can vouch for how fun the class is. An amazing experiential gift for friends or family!
Zoe & Co Candle
Zoe & Co Candle has incredible smelling soy candles and is run by the sweetest people. Grab a candle and a wick trimmer for the perfect gift combo!
Gift R&R with a Kalma Touch gift card. Maybe a scalp & body treatment? Or ritual massages?
For the plant enthusiast in your life! Check out the shop or some of the available workshops & events.
