Holiday shopping doesn’t get any easier or more pleasant than a trip downtown where purchasing gifts from merchants also supports the local economy.
If you are having trouble coming up with a gift idea, stop in at Calistoga Trading Depot, where proprietor Kellie Anderson will walk around with you and point out some of the gems she has to offer at reasonable prices. There are loads of stocking stuffer items there.
For a themed gift for the bee lover, the shop has a handful of cute and useful items with bee decorations or beekeeping information.
Offer someone special enlightenment with a Buddha themed gift basket. There is a Buddha chime at Silverado ACE Hardware, and other Buddha gifts at Blackbird of Calistoga, for example.
There is no shortage of jewelry gifts with a wide selection at stores such as Blackbird, Rove, North Star, Calistoga Trading Depot, Funke’s, and others. And don’t forget to stop in to places such as Casa Design where there are some interesting little finds.
