‘Tis the season of running around town and twiddling our thumbs shopping in-store and online for our loved ones! With it being such a busy holiday season and a different holiday season than we’ve ever had before, it’s good to plan ahead and have in mind places to shop. Supporting local businesses is more important than ever this year so we’ve done the research for you to highlight businesses that are in and around Lakewood.
If you are looking for a store that has a little bit of everything, visit Datura Home. Datura Home is sure to have home accessories, unique gifts, personal bath and body products, garden fountains and statuary, and most definitely a great selection of quality house plants.
When you are looking for a unique hidden gem of a gift, consignment shops are the way to go! Whether you are on the hunt for a special hand bag or a piece of furniture check out Olde Town Exchange Consignment, The Avenue Consignment Boutique, Common Threads Denver, or Flippin Furniture & Consignment.

There are many boutiques located in and around Lakewood, but some of our favorites are White Oak & Rooted Boutique, W Boutique, Apricot Lane Boutique, Lariat, Lady Jones, Meraki Moon, and Rustic Thread.
While the mall might seem like a place for bigger businesses only, there are actually a lot of small businesses represented too! That makes a shopping mall a great place to get all your holiday shopping done in one place. Some great shopping malls around your Velo apartment are Colorado Mills, Belmar, Cherry Creek Center, and Denver Pavilions.
No matter where you decide to shop this holiday season, keep small businesses in mind. Whether you are buying an item from them, purchasing a gift card, or even just following small businesses on social media, engaging with their posts and telling your family and friends about them; any kind of support is very much appreciated.
