If your list is calling for clothes and accessories, local shops are ready to help turn heads and style even the most fashion-challenged people on your list! From top names in style to finds you won’t believe, head to Bluebird Boutique in Urbana to find the latest and greatest gifts for women of all ages. Be sure to also stop by Checkered Moon for great pieces for the wardrobe, and don’t forget the guys in your life – they’ll be happy with something from Joseph Kuhn and Company no matter their style! 

Additionally, go big for that special someone with fine jewelry from Christopher & Co., freshly decorated with festive window displays to make shopping fun and fit for anyone you might need a gift for that special someone. En Route Boutique in Mahomet also adds a slew of options to your holiday shopping list, striving to offer the highest quality, most unique merchandise on the market today.

The Tuscola Outlet Mall is a great option for brands like Under Armor and Ralph Lauren, or you can shop H&M, Forever 21, and more at Marketplace Mall as well. Plus, let’s face it; running or biking in this weather is a bit rough between snow and cold temperatures, so make sure to give the gift of protection from the elements with a purchase from Rugged Outdoors. This online shop also has a great new location at Carle at the Fields.
