Give the gift of local this season. While ordering gifts online from large retailers is convenient, we encourage you to check out Ogden’s independent stores.
In a world increasingly dominated by gift cards and online shopping corporate behemoths, shopping in Ogden, Utah, is an oasis that continues to invite personal interaction and hand-made gifts from artisans in actual brick-and-mortar locations. If you’re looking for truly unique shopping experiences and memorable gifts while supporting local small businesses, park in any of Ogden’s abundant, free parking and take a stroll downtown. First, download our Ogden savings pass to get exclusive deals from our local businesses. Now here’s a sample of what you’ll find:
Khroma Herbal Products is an all-organic, all-vegan, eco friendly, ethical company that specializes in creating the highest quality herbal products available anywhere in the world. They only use glass bottles and never package anything in plastic. They stand proudly behind all of their products and offer a 100% money back guarantee on every item they sell.
The Fiction is one of the newest additions on our block. We like to look at it as a mini Monarch, as most of the producers started out there. From custom floral arrangements to original letterpress printing, the Fiction has some of the most unique gifts to give this holiday season.
The Monarch houses dozens of working artists’ studios, most of which offer their creations for sale. The trick is, each artist keeps their own hours, so not every studio is open on a regular schedule outside of Ogden’s First Friday Art Stroll (the first Friday every month). However, The Art Box is open daily. The Art Box is an interactive studio designed to inspire and ignite the creative gifts held by all. In addition to a variety of art classes offered in different mediums throughout the year, they invite you to drop in anytime to make your own one-of-a-kind candle. Beautiful, ready-to-order candles are also available on the website. Art Box is a great place to pick up something special for a friend or family member who loves home scents or collects candles.
