Christmas Shopping in Midtown

Last weekend I ventured out to all the little shops in the Midtown to finish up some Christmas shopping. I was looking for small gifts and stocking stuffers so I popped into a few of the places that are known for carrying unique items. I visited Hugh, Nora, City Bird, and Nest. Each store had a unique feel with lots of cool items to check out and purcahse.
Nora carried all sorts of different items, including housewares, baby gifts, toys, jewelry, cards, bath items and more.  Everything is layed out on tables and has a little hand written ticket that explains the item and the price. The items in this store were mid prices and everything was adorable. This would be a great place to get a mid priced gift for someone special. This store is geared towards women, but carries item for both sexes and people of all ages.

Hugh is located right next to Nora, in fact they have a door that connects them so you can visit both spaces without even going outside. Hugh is a store for men, specifically upscale bachelors. They had everything from beard combs, to wallets, to fancy cocktail glasses, copper mugs for the perfect Moscow Mule, and lots of hairand skin care items for men. This store is a little pricey, but everything inside is very cool. You will find a gift for the special men in your life!
City Bird and Nest both carry a lot of small items, including bottle openers, candles, plants, ornaments, organic health and beauty items, and more. They have so much to look at, it is almost overwhelming. I was very surprised at how reasonably priced everything was. There is something in these stores for everyone, even the hardest to shop for. This would be a great place to go if your list and need some gift guidance. Both of these stores carried a lot of Michigan and Detroit themed merchandise as well. They also had a lot of cool, one of a kind jewelry pieces, and lots and lots of cards for every occasion.
I walked out of midtown a much happier person than when I walked in. In a matter of an hour, I finished a lot of my Christmas shopping and even bought myself a really cool quartz necklace.  Midtown is booming with small businesses and we couldn't be happier! Consider heading out and doing the rest of your Christmas shopping locally this weekend!
