If you know me, you know that I love supporting local businesses. Local businesses are what strengthen our communities and help our area thrive! We are so lucky to have a great variety of amazing local businesses in our area. This year, and every year, I encourage others to shop local, so today, I’m highlighting my top local businesses for Christmas shopping in Oconomowoc. 


Top 5 Oconomowoc Businesses for Christmas Shopping

Here are just a few of the fantastic Oconomowoc businesses you can shop for Christmas gifts this year! What’s your favorite local store?

1) Mission Road Boutique/The Well

This lovely downtown boutique has gifts galore for your friends, mom, daughter, and more. They carefully select on-trend clothing and accessories to help you look and feel your best. In addition, their home decor lineup is impressive! Mission Road Boutique donates a portion of their proceeds to a different charity each month as their mission to make a difference. So you can leave feeling great that your purchase helps others.

Visit their website to browse, and stop in to shop at 109 W. Wisconsin Ave, Oconomowoc, WI  53066

2) Carol Ann’s Gracerie

Walking through this old, restored schoolhouse is reason alone to make the short one-block detour from Summit Avenue. It is an antique and art collector’s paradise! The Gracerie’s mission is to provide a cultural center for art and to bring artists together for the community. Art not your thing? Then you’ll appreciate the home decor that fills its many rooms (and 30% off sale). From upcycled furniture to seasonal decor, this store has it all! The Gracerie also offers different art classes each month for the crafty loved one. This is perfect if you’re looking to give the gift of an experience. Check out their upcoming art class schedule and see if you find something that would work for you or as a gift!

3) Fray Babes 

Know someone expecting or has a young child? This trendy boutique offers a timeless baby and children’s clothing line, as well as accessories and unique gifts! I was just in the store last week and saw some great stocking stuffers for littles that you’ll definitely want to check out. Keep this store in mind for any upcoming baby showers as well.

4) Books & Company 

If you have a book lover in your life, you have to head to Books & Company for their Christmas gift! Actually, you should head there regardless just to breathe in the awesome independent bookstore vibe. It’s the place to be! Not only is their staff extremely helpful in making suggestions so you can select the perfect gift or choose your next read with confidence but they gift wrap free of charge! Not to mention you can head through the adjoining doors to pick up coffee at Stone Creek on your way out, making this trip a win-win!

Have an outdoorsy friend or family member? This is the one-stop-shop for their Christmas gift! Not only do they carry all the name brands in outdoor equipment and clothing, but their friendly staff can also help answer any questions you have about what would work best. Unlike a big box store, these guys know their stuff and are happy to help you!
