The Best Christmas Gifts

The hot cocoa is flowing, trees are decorated, and the Christmas season is underway!

This festive and fun time is a chance to be together with loved ones, and surprise each other with special gifts.

While the anticipation leading up to December 25 can be exciting, it can also be a *tad* stressful to make sure everyone is checked off on your list.

One of the great things about Iowa City is you don’t have to go far to find amazing presents, so you can spend less time trying to track them down and more time cozied up with your family watching Christmas movies!

For your holiday shopping needs, consider these locally loved businesses:


Ewers Mens Store, Inc – Because men sometimes need personal shoppers to find them new clothes! 😉

Scheels – Camping, sports, hunting, oh my!

Lenoch & Cilek Ace Hardware – Their D.I.Y. projects will get D.I.DONE.


Radiant Boutique by Rhi – What woman doesn’t like new clothes?!

Hobby Lobby – All of her hobbies and home decor needs taken care of.

Spa Bilancia – A certificate for a stress-free and relaxing time? Yes, please!

Iowa Children’s Museum – Passes for a day of fun will come in handy during the really cold days of winter.

The Hobby Corner – Encourage their love of fun and creativity!
