Looking for that one-of-a-kind gift for that one-of-a-kind person in your life? We can think of no better place to find it than right here in Lexington, KY. One of the best things about Lexington is that small local businesses are at the heart of our communities, so it’s no surprise that we support our neighbors. Show our community some love and shop local this holiday season.

Whether they need a little piece of home or just love showing their love for their state, we have great local options for just that. From graphic tees to a fried chicken ornament, Kentucky for Kentucky has all the fun gifts. Shop Local Kentucky also has all you need to get outfitted from head to toe in Kentucky gear.

There is also something for everyone’s budget. For the best higher-end purchases, head to Morton James in the Summit at Fritz Farm or Omar + Elsie, for a more budget-friendly but still on-trend gift head to Pirie Boutique or AJ’s Casuals!
