Grand Rapids Holiday Shopping Guide

Head a little north of Grand Rapids and you find the charming community of Rockford. Packed with cute shops, great restaurants and a very walkable downtown, it is the perfect place to get your holiday shopping done.

There are few places better to shop for the wee ones on your list than Aunt Candys Toy Company. From Thomas the Train to Thomas the Train to Gund, to your favorite children's books, there is so much to chose from. And with free gift wrapping and the ability to ship anywhere in the US, it makes gift giving super easy!

If you want the young ones on your list to be the best dressed around, head over to Sassy Pants Boutique. Everything in the store unique and adorable and many are made by local artisans. They are happy to put together custom gift baskets to suit your gift needs.

If home decor is what you are looking for, look no further than Right At Home. Filled with beautiful art, furniture, accessories and more. Or just walk around and get inspiration. If you like something with a little more urban feel, head next door to their sister store, Urban Elements.

Sometimes there is no better gift than the gift of food. Several shops in Rockford are prepared to help you out. Old World Olive Press specializes in olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Trust me. You want to try their olive oils and vinegars. Over 50 flavors are available to sample and taste and they don't disappoint. They also have many fine dining gifts and accessories.

There are many more wonderful shops to explore and plenty of yummy eats to stop at when you need a break from all that shopping. Discover all that the Rockford shopping district has to offer on the Rockford Network website.
