Shop Locally: Beacon Hill and Back Bay Holiday Gift Ideas

Here's a taste of what great gifts you can buy this holiday season right here in your own neighborhood.

Beacon Hill and Back Bay shoppers, here are some ideas for unique, locally made or sold gifts this holiday season. 

All items in the above photo gallery have been submitted by local retailers and can be purchased right here in downtown Boston, saving you time and hassle from leaving the neighborhood to shop for your friends and family, and supporting local businesses at the same time.

If you have any other local gift ideas, please upload a photo with a short description, or leave a comment. Let's make this a resource for the entire neighborhood! 


Retailers/businesses: If you'd like to be included, please upload a photo that contains this information in the caption:

  • Item name and short description, include anything special about the product
  • Intended person this would be a good gift for (moms, dads, women, teens, men, kids, etc.)
  • Price
  • Your business name
  • Your business address

To upload, simply click the large green "Upload Photos/Videos" button. 

You must write your caption when you upload your photo. You can't edit it later. (Although I can make any necessary edits.)
