Holiday gift guide to shop local in Washington, DCNovember 10, 2022
Welcome to our 2022 Holiday Gift Guide – Washington DC, where we highlight local businesses to shop for your holiday gifting needs this season.
Artisanal and handmade gifts from the Downtown Holiday Market in Penn Quarter. From handmade candles from Kin & Care to art and collectibles from vendors like Far East Antiques and the Narrow Passage Store, you can’t go wrong shopping hyper-local for loved ones at this famed holiday market.
Pro Tip: Check out the website to see a list of vendors – many of them, like Kin & Care, have online shops if you still want to shop local but can’t make it in person to the market.
Headed to a holiday party and need a gift for the host? What about a gift for your neighbor that you don’t know so well but want to spread holiday cheer to? Look no further than this bakery gem in North West DC. Opt for some fresh bread or ANY seasonal treat and you will definitely not be disappointed.
Want to support local businesses around DC but don’t have time to run around town? Shop Made in DC was founded by two DC locals who round up the District’s best makers, bakers, artists, and beyond to curate specialty made gifts and gift boxes so you can give the gift of DC while supporting local makers and artists.
We hope you’ll forgive a 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! Shop our NEW e-gift cards here.
