Holiday gift guide to shop local in Montgomery County, MD

Welcome to our 2022 Montgomery County Holiday Gift Guide, where we highlight local businesses to shop for your holiday gifting needs this season.

For the person who loves collectibles and antiques

My Big Finds – Gaithersburg, MD (Downtown Kentlands)

For everything vintage and one-of-a-kind antique pieces, My Big Finds is a great spot to find a treasure for the person in your life who loves unique and vintage collectibles. They also have an Instagram where you can check out some examples of their products before heading there in person.


For the holiday party host or your next door neighbor

Red Orchard – Bethesda, MD

Red Orchard does the heavy lifting for you when it comes to host-gifting this holiday season with an entire gift guide just for the occasion. Head over to Balducci’s next door for some gourmet treats (for yourself or giftee) and you’ve got a fun day of local shopping ahead.


For the new mom

The One-Minute Mood Journal For Mothers – Online or at The Family Room (more on this shop below!)

Authored and published by a local mom and business owner, Emily Belson, The One-Minute Mood Journal For Mothers is a thoughtful gift for any new mom in your life. Read more about her inspiration behind the project here, and purchase the book on Amazon or at The Family Room where you can find lots of other locally curated goods and treats.



The Family Room – Laytonsville, MD 

The Family Room is a mother/daughter owned business that truly understands and brings to life the magic of local gifting. From books by local authors to handmade artisanal goods and treats by local makers, TFR is a winter wonderland that is worth visiting even just to experience the magic of the experience they’ve created within their shop.


For the person who has everything

The Cottage Monet – Rockville, MD 

We all have that chic friend whose style we envy and who, when it comes to gifting, leaves us feeling stumped wondering how we can add to their already perfectly curated style. The Cottage Monet in Rockville offers a gorgeous, stylish collection of homewares and apparel that will ensure you can find something just as chic as the recipient of the gift!


For the busy car owner in your life (or yourself!)

CarCare To Go Hand Detailing + Valet – Online/Valet

We hope you’ll forgive the bit of self promo, but as a locally owned and operated business we would be remiss not to mention our hand detailing services that leave your car feeling brand new as a gift for you or any loved one with a car. Let’s be honest, the crumbs and dust in many of our cars are old enough to get a driver’s license. The gift of “that new car feeling” with the convenience of valet pick-up and return…we think that’s a pretty good gift! Check out our brand new e-gift cards here.

I’ve used this company twice. I’ll use them again. That’s the best compliment I can give. They are responsive, affordable, and generous (during my second visit, they gave me Lyft vouchers for free!).... read more - 1 week ago
