FOR THE LITTLES | Whether they still believe in Santa or are too old for Elf on the Shelf, there’s something magical about shopping for littles come Christmas.

To inspire your selections — on Santa’s behalf, of course — we’ve scouted Birmingham’s favorite local boutiques for their kid-approved offerings. Head to our link in bio to find 30 gifts your little ones will love!

GIFTS FOR THE BIRMINGHAM GUY | When it comes to gifting the guys, we’re often left stumped. Often self-indulgent (who can blame them!) they either have everything they need or (who’s heard this before?) “don’t want anything.” To ensure your gifting goes smoothly, we’ve sourced a selection of 25 local gifts for the Birmingham guy, from little goodies and stocking stuffers to thoughtful experiences and show-stopping luxuries that they’ll love for years to come.

GIFTS FOR HER | ‘Tis the season to double down on doting upon the ladies in your life. To help you do so, we’ve curated a selection of 39 luxe gifts for her, whether that ‘her’ you’re shopping for is your mother, wife, sister, best friend, or self. From elevated essentials to one-of-a-kind delights, these gifts hint at the wealth of options Birmingham offers this holiday season. While many of Birmingham’s favorite stores offer comprehensive online shopping experiences (shop local from afar, wherever you are!), we invite you to visit each of these boutiques in-person to explore their vibrant offerings. Just don’t forget to tell them Scout sent you!
