For Tweens & Teens

Give the gift of girl power this season! At Miss Confident Boutique you’ll discover a wide array of cozy presents, including the softest ever avocado pajamas and adorable tie-dye smiley hats and slippers. Their donut bath balms make great stocking stuffers, as do their tabletop build-your-own snowman kits.

With exceptional quality, you can guarantee their outfit will live up to the holiday occasion. Let them run wild in style, with a fun and festive outfit.

Toys galore

If you’ve ever walked by The Toy Chest on Main Street with kids in tow, you were most likely pulled eagerly inside. Huge stuffed animals, games and puzzles of every kind, all the fidget and fad toys, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. For the youngest, you’ll find toys to aid in their development, figurines and playsets of every kind to foster imaginative play, and some scented slime or Crazy Aaron’s Thinking Putty for the older ones.

For the little athletes

Is your little one always on the run? If so, sprint on down to Ridgefield Running Company to find active lifestyle gifts and must-have accessories. Grab a new HydroFlask water bottle to keep them hydrated while they run circles around everyone, and you can never go wrong with a new pair of quality sneakers. The cold and snow won’t stop them from being on the go, so gift them some cool kicks.

For the little bookworms in your life, Books on the Common has you covered. Their Kid’s Corner is filled to the brim: from all of the classics we know and love to the best of the new releases, you’re sure to find something to suit their imaginations.
