Shop Coral Gables for your holiday gifts this year. Instead of ordering online or braving the crowds in a big mall, take a leisurely stroll through the shops of Downtown Coral Gables and you’ll find something for everyone on your nice list.

The Market, a new kind of urban convenience store, is a small pocket of tasty local and organic treats in Coral Gables. This quaint storefront is a health nut’s dream. They serve specialty sandwiches made fresh daily, fresh organic juices and healthy shakes and Panther Coffee and Jojo Tea, that make for a great lunch on a regular workday. Put together a special gift for the health nut in your life or give a junk food junkie a taste of the good life with a holiday assortment of locally made specialty items.  The industrial style shelves at The Market are packed with everything form local honey, pickles, nuts, snack bars, grains and more by artisanal, mostly local, companies. Give the gift of a healthy, high-end pantry for Christmas. What could show you care more than the gift of health?

There’s a new women’s boutique on Miracle Mile, right next to John Martin’s, called Cattiva Boutique and they have just what you need for the fashionable female on your list – or yourself. Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers like candles, jewelry or accessories or an outfit to wear to your holiday party, you’ll find it at the expansive Cattiva Boutique. This brand new store is less than a week old and is filled to the brim with reasonably priced clothing so that you can restock your party wardrobe or find that perfect Christmas look.

Curves n’ Waves, a swimwear and women’s styles boutique, has been on The Mile for a whopping twenty-two years. That’s a whole lot of experience that will certainly help you find the perfect holiday surprise for Christmas – Miami style. It’s December and it still feels like swimsuit season. Why fight it with scarves and boots when the temperature doesn’t call for it? Embrace Christmas in the tropics and find the perfect bikini to gift your fashionista friend. A Miami girl can never have too many bikinis, perhaps she needs on in winter white?
