The season of giving is upon us, and there’s no better gift than one from your favorite local spot.
You’re guaranteed to find something more unique and personal—even homemade. Items you can’t get from big-box stores. With that spirit, here are some local shops in Dublin to support over the holidays that are sure to put smiles on the faces of your loved ones.
What would the holiday season be without sweet treats? There’s no shortage of local Dublin goodies to give. Pick up a pint of seasonal flavor at Loard’s Ice Cream. Since 1950, this sweet shop has been serving the area with the same irresistibly rich and creamy recipes they opened with years ago. And if you’re looking for traditional Chinese pastries with a modern twist, Kee Wah Bakery has cases full of egg tarts, crunchy buns and mooncakes that will delight any connoisseur of international treats or give you the boost you need while holiday shopping.
And with all the great trails at Boulevard, there’s no better gift than bike this season! Head on over to Dublin Cyclery, a fixture of the community since 1965. Whether it’s a starter bike for a child, a top-of-the-line custom bike for an avid cycling enthusiast or anyone in between, this shop carries a complete line of products that will have you ready to ride. Plus, who wouldn’t love receiving a fresh pair of wheels with a big red bow for the holidays?
Or maybe you’ll choose a brand new TV or other electronics. Video Only is a premier home electronics retailer that opened in the 1980s. With a large inventory of products, this local shop gives customers a much better chance of taking purchased products home immediately. That means no special orders or waiting on ports to move products.
With so many other eclectic local options for gifts, like sewing classes from Dublin Sewing Center, unique décor from Consignment Furnishings or even quality homebrewing supplies for wine and beer from HopTech—there are plenty of great options to make the season bright.
With a variety of small businesses to support in Dublin, it’s easy to shop local this holiday season while living at Boulevard.
