There are so many great local shops and gift stores to find those last few holiday gifts on your list! Below are a few suggestions, but this is not even close to a comprehensive list of all the places to shop that we have right in our own backyard. For additional options, check out the following pages:
- Local Restaurants for gift card giving
- Sweet Treat gift options
- Gift Stores and more!
- Art Galleries for gift cards or unique pieces
- Clothing Stores for gifts that will bring warmth all winter
For the foodie in your life, you can’t go wrong with a gift card to anyone of these local restaurants or bakeries. For a more personal gift, make your own custom basket from Blue Loon Bakery, or opt for a local favorite like Peter Christian’s Tavern’s homemade mustard (can be found at the restaurant or their new gift shop!) or try out the buffalo and bison gift ideas from Yankee Farmer’s Market.
For wine and beer gifts, there is always the local grocery stores and two New Hampshire State Liquor stores (one in New London and one in Warner), but it’s worth checking out the Kearsarge Cooperative Grocer in New London. They offer a small selection, but you’ll find some great options (especially organic wine) that you won’t see at the larger stores. Local beers from the Flying Goose in New London, Protectworth Brewing in Springfield and Polyculture Brewing in Croydon, make great gifts.
In need of stocking stuffers and unique gifts? Visit Artisan’s New London or Allioops (not only a florist, they have super fun gifts too!). The local Farm Markets also have a really great selection of gifts—check out Spring Ledge Farm in New London, Sweet Beet Market in Bradford or Warner Public Market in Warner. For longer list of farm stands and markets check out this page.
For the reader on your shopping list, visit Morgan Hill Book Store in New London and MainStreet BookEnds in Warner. Looking for a special piece of jewelry, head to Newport and visit MJ Harrington Jewelers.
For those who are still working on DIY home projects, you can’t go wrong visiting Clarke’s Hardware in New London or Belletetes in Andover.
And, of course, you don’t want to forget your favorite furry friends! No holiday shopping trip is complete without stopping in to Unleashed in New London.
