Today we’re taking on the most stubborn names on your holiday list – the ones you just can’t seem to cross off because clothes, gadgets and regular little trinkets just won’t do. We all have that special someone that is particularly hard to shop for.  Here are a few gift ideas (that you can find in Downtown Coral Gables!) that go above and beyond; things that are a little more special or unusual than your average things:

The holidays get me in the mood for a musical and when I’m thinking about gifts, I can’t help but remember a silly song from Annie that goes “You’re never fully dressed without a smile!” Now, musicals say a lot of nonsensical things, but this line is so true! Why not give the gift of a brighter, whiter smile? Alberto Smile Center, Coral Gables Dentistry and Robert Perdomo III, DMD, Dental Cosmetic Spa are just a few of the many dentists who can professionally whiten your teeth for the picture perfect holiday smile.

How about having something personalized made at Awards Trophy World? You’ll have to hurry and place your order now for a made-to-order gift, but think about how fun it would be to give a personalized trophy or set of mugs, pens or clothes. We use a clever little geo-tag location name for my house and I’d love to have some mugs made with our little casita’s online moniker. You hear that Santa?

Jewelry is a no-brainer. Something classic and sparkly can quickly go from just a holiday gift to a family heirloom. Luckily, Coral Gables is, and always has been, the very best place to go shopping for special jewelry. All you have to do is walk down Miracle Mile to see windows showing off beautiful, high-end pieces, but here’s the rundown of Coral Gables jewelers: French Riviera Jewelers, Gables Gems, JAE’S Jewelers, Jose Roca, Klein Jewelry, Snow’s Jewelers,  and Tepedino Jewelry.

If you’re giving a gift to a voracious reader who’s already made their way through the New York Times Bestseller’s list in their favorite genre, check out Fifteenth Street books and find them something really special and rare. This bookstore is chock-full of interesting reads that you can’t find anywhere else including out-of-print and limited-edition print copies of titles that you’ll recognize.
