Season’s greetings from the Memorial District! Our community is alive with shopping action for this festive season.

The Memorial District has it all, from glitzy and glamorous gifts to personalized presents.
Are you giving a gift to someone who enjoys being in the kitchen? Pop into Sur La Table in and spoil the person on your list with state-of-the-art kitchenware in fabulous colors and materials or check out Williams Sonoma where you can always find the Gift of the Day. Also, sneak a peek at the exciting things you can find in Macy's and Dillard's at Memorial City Mall. For example, the homeware tends to be on sale during the holiday season.
If you are shopping for a fashionista who always needs to stay on-trend, shop local at Anything Bling Boutique, Hemline, Saige & Rose, Zara, Anthropologie, or Free People. There you'll find the latest styles in booties, shackets, skirts, tops, and coats that are stylish. For western chick and on-trend boho styles, check out Marlo Miller Boutique. Classic styles can always be found at Chico’s and Talbots. The Gap is always popular for menswear and Jos. A Bank for classic styles. Nordstrom Rack on Bunker Hill Road is a great place for holiday shoppers to find premium name-brand items that won’t tighten their purse strings. If the person you are shopping for is picky, say happy holidays with a gift card to any of these locations so that they can shop 'til they drop.
