Shop Small St. Pete: the local holiday gift guide

Shop Small St. Pete: the local holiday gift guide

Celebrate Small Businesses in St. Pete with the new Shop Small St. Pete Holiday Gift Guide. Below you will find a curated array of local businesses offering some of the most unique gifts in the ‘Burg. 


If you’re looking to wear your love for the city, just remember you can always shop for tees, tanks, mugs, beach towels and more on the I Love the ‘Burg shop. Also consider becoming an I Love the Burg member for exclusive access to some of the best food and experiences in St. Pete. 

Shine a Light on St. Pete Small Businesses

We also wanted to give a major shoutout to our sponsors who do so much to make sure I Love the ‘Burg can continue to celebrate this beautiful city. 


Start by giving the gift of downtown St. Pete vacation. Nothing compares to a weekend poolside at The Hollander Hotel. Enjoy fine dining in the taproom, or a drink poolside at the H2O Bar.

Need to find a community? Join The Body Electric Yoga Company, or The BE Athletic Company

For the coffee lover, consider a Kahwa Coffee Gift Box or Gift Card

A gift card to any of the Red Mesa Restaurants is always a great stocking stuffer.

Do you want to shop small at more than 300 vendors? Don’t miss LocalShops1’s Shopapalooza at Vinoy Park November 26 and 27.

Keep the Studio@620’s Handmade Holizaar on your radar, too. This local market is set for Saturday, December 11.

If you need a holiday glow up, we highly recommend you pay a visit to Maison Glo on 4th Street North – the skin care savior of St. Pete. Yes, you can also give the gift of Glo. 

Add some magic to your holiday season by catching or gifting a fantastic show at Zubrick Magic Theatre, the perfect family friendly attraction in St. Pete.
