Gifting is one of the five languages of love (alongside touch, time, affirmation, and action). Whether you want to give a tiny statement of thoughtfulness or a major monument of adoration, you can always find a lovely something from local boutiques and makers, like the below gifts for women. Perhaps shopping local is a sixth love language — one that speaks to lively main streets and healthy small businesses! This holiday season, try one of our selections for the women in your life.

It’s worth a visit just to marvel at them, whether you think you’re in the market for a new pair or not.
