No matter who you have on your holiday list this year, there is a nearby Charlotte boutique that will meet your gift giving needs. Plus, it’s the perfect time of year to shop locally and support small-businesses with your dollar. The shopping is far less stressful than the mall and the gifts infinitely more unique. Here are just a few of our favorites.
