41 Cincinnati Boutiques for Shopping Local This Holiday Season


The countdown to the holidays have officially begun. We thought we'd highlight some of Cincinnati’s locally owned and independent stores from which to purchase some thoughtful gifts this season. Instead of going the big-box route, spending money at local shops not only supports your friends and neighbors who own them, but it also keeps your dollars in the city: For every $100 you spend at a locally owned business, $68 stays in the community versus $43 for a national chain. If you’re looking for something unique, handmade or carefully crafted, these Cincinnati boutiques are a great place to start.

Note: This is not a list of every boutique in Cincinnati — it is just a primer to spark some local-shopping spirit.
