47 Cincinnati Shops and Boutiques We Love


As we head into the final countdown of the 2018 holiday shopping season, we decided to highlight some of Cincinnati’s locally owned and independent stores from which to purchase some thoughtful gifts. 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.
