It wasn’t long ago that downtown Miami residents would have to hop in the car to get their hands on last-minute gifts during the holiday season.
But now, thanks to a fast-growing crop of retail options in and around downtown, the perfect gift for that special someone is a short walk or bike ride or Metromover ride away.
While major department stores like Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue have something for everyone, here are some of our favorite off-the-beaten-path shopping finds in the neighborhood:
Pérez Art Museum Miami has much more to offer than beautiful works of art. The PAMM shop features everyday items modeled after the 20th century contemporary art collection seen within the museum. The shop has a wide variety of gifts ranging from office supplies, jewelry, clothing, furniture, to even children’s toys. Best of all, local vendors, designers and artists are featured prominently.
Who doesn’t love jewelry? Take a trip to the Seybold building for a one stop shop experience at the United States’ second largest jewelry marketplace. The Seybold building is ten stories tall with over 280 in-house jewelers covering all areas of the trade – from diamonds and rare stones, to watches and everything in between.
Supply & Advise
Finding a gift for the men in your life is easy at Supply & Advise. The New York-to-Miami transplant offers designer clothing and a variety of timeless men’s apparel, shoes, and accessories. With an online and in-store holiday sale now in progress, saving money and looking good has never been easier.
Ok, so maybe your Miami man doesn’t need any more button downs. Take a look at Churchill’s Barbershop for classic and quality bathroom products designed just for men. Churchill’s sells a wide range of cosmetic products for the man who enjoys a nice clean shave.
Shade Boutique and the Streets Art Shop at the InterContinental
Hand selected unique gifts from across South Florida can be found at the Shade Boutique and Streets Art Shop at the InterContinental. From Wynwood mural reprints to uniquely Miami swim trunks, there’s a gift for everyone at the InterContinental’s boutique and art shop.
If you are looking for luxury items beyond jewelry, clothing, and cosmetics then stop by Lexor Miami. Lexor sells designer brand sunglasses, watches, and perfumes at affordable prices with quality personal care from their sales team. Their one-of-a-kind selection of designer items will leave your gifted loved one feeling Miami chic.
The good news is that more shopping options are on the way, with projects like Miami Worldcenter and Brightline’s Miami Central coming online in the next couple of years.
