In a world where it’s much easier to order presents online, the joy of shopping has lost its glow a little bit. I highly recommend heading to downtown Lodi and making a day of it to snap you into the Christmas spirit. Take a break at one of our many amazing tasting rooms to make your day even brighter! I’ve put together a list of a few of my favorite local shops to find goodies for the people I love and maybe just a thing or two for myself!

Stella Mitchell is an upscale boutique featuring designer men & women’s clothing, accessories, & home decor. When I’m buying for someone special, I almost always end up at Stella Mitchell. Their staff is friendly and helpful, but it’s the unique and beautiful items in their shop that keep me coming back for more. Their inventory is always changing, so it pays to return often. I can’t resist!


Crunchy Mama Bear offers small-batch, handmade, chemical-free wellness products at an amazingly affordable price. From beard oil, essential oil rollers for kids, lotions, soaps, & even natural toothpaste--they’ve got you covered! Pop into Boxwood Finch on Lockeford St or visit their online store to order today!


Boxwood Finch is an adorable shop on Lockeford St, just a block or two away from the heart of downtown. This shop has both its feet in the community, offering regular workshops and events that also make great gifts! They provide products from local makers and home decor that pushes all my decorating buttons! If you haven’t been, now’s the time!


Bella’s Closet is all the rage with Lodi ladies and this list would be incomplete without them! You can find a variety of different styles here, which is wonderful! Whether I want something a little more edgy or something comfy, they always seem to have exactly what I’m looking for. Follow them on Instagram to see all the fun new stuff that seems to come in constantly--I can barely keep up!


The Local Collective is a new addition to the downtown scene and I can’t get over how cute it is! Don’t miss it by leaving Sacramento St out of your downtown shopping loop! The Local Collective is a consignment shop that supports local artisans. They’ve done such a great job transforming the space and showcasing some beautiful works of art from jewelry to leather to macrame! If you’re looking for a real-life Etsy experience, this is it!


I hope this list has helped put you on the right track to spreading Christmas cheer with the people you love! Happy Holidays, everyone!
