You don’t have to leave town to find gift giving options that are unique, thoughtful and personalized. Even a last minute gift can be wrapped in a way to make it meaningful, and less cheesy and impersonal.

Home decor: Gift cards can be purchased for future use. If you are shopping for someone who enjoys interior design and home decor look no further than The Winters Collective, The Flying Pig and The Farmer’s Closet Boutique. All three stores feature unique, hand selected wares for personalized style and flair.

Consider taking it up a level and getting supplies from Vintique Marketplace inside the Collective. A variety of paint, supplies and services are available for someone who is crafty and has a creative vision for a room or who enjoys adding color and texture to furniture.

Unique flair: In addition to the above businesses, Becky’s Bella Boutique and Adry’s Fiesta Boutique both feature unique accessories and jewelry. They also have home crafted creations including hair accessories, hats and scarves. Be sure to visit their Facebook page or storefronts to check for their hours of operation. You can also visit Christian’s Corner and Ayca Designs at the Collective for a variety of jewelry and accessories to gift.

Plant and flower arrangements: Roxie’s Flower Truck is planning some pop up shops. Visit Roxie’s social media accounts to find out where she may be. Another last minute option is to visit The Local Floret at the Collective. The Local Floret has fresh and dried flower bouquets available for purchase, plant arrangements or air plants for the person who loves plants but is challenged in keeping them green and thriving. Another option is to check out the Tub Tea Station and create a customized satchel or look at the selection of sage sticks.

Wellness and body-care: Lotions, essential oil blends and crystals are available from PurLuv Apothecary & Spa at the Collective. Body-care products range from scrubs, soaking salts, balms and essential oils focusing on specific themes and needs. ZenTerra Spa at the Winters Hotel also offers packages and services for someone looking for a facial treatment or massage therapy service.

Mugs and tumblers: Coffee mugs and personalized tumblers also make fun gifts. Yolo.Boutique features fun coffee mugs and tumblers from Turkovich Family Wines and Steady Eddy’s Coffee House. Abbey Street Crafts at the Collective also has witty, snarky and fun personalized tumblers available and ready to go for last minute gifting. Pair it with a gift certificate, wine from Turkovich or Berryessa Gap Winery, or even a bottle of spirits or cocktail kit from Patio29 Spirits Company.
