With Covid-19 safety measures and the understandable impulse to avoid the holiday shopper rush, many of us are doing our shopping online this year. Still, if you find yourself looking for a classic Christmas feel this holiday season, here are a few of Lexington’s most unique and cherished Christmas shops to give a visit.

Hillenmeyer Christmas Shop

3389 Tates Creek Road

This family-owned holiday shop located near the Lansdowne shopping center is the perfect place for anybody looking to experience a nostalgic and cozy atmosphere while doing their holiday decor shopping. Hillenmeyer Christmas shop sells trees, wreaths, and other quintessential Christmas staples in a comforting, rustic environment that captures the magic of the holidays right here at home.

The Corman Marketplace

881 Floyd Drive

This seller of Christmas decorations and homegoods– think ornaments, nativity figures, floral arrangements, stockings shaped like cat paws for your four-legged friends– has just about everything you need to get your home in the holiday spirit. If you’re looking for a moonshine-themed Santa Claus ornament, for instance, The Corman Marketplace has you covered. You can also buy some appropriately festive pre-lit Christmas trees and other faux foliage.

My Favorite Things

2721 Old Rosebud Road

While My Favorite Things serves as a one-of-a-kind home decor shop for most of the year, around the holidays, My Favorite Things turns into a one-of-a-kind Christmas decor shop for all manner of hall-decking enthusiasts. It’s an easy trip if you find yourself in or around the Hamburg shopping center– a common occurrence for those doing their brick-and-mortar shopping in the Lexington area (and for many, Kentucky in general.)

The Front Porch

4238 Saron Drive

Much like the previous entry, The Front Porch is a year-round one-stop shop for decorating your home, but come Christmastime, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a corner of the shop that isn’t brimming with holiday cheer. Located right off New Circle Road, it’s perfect for both a quick stop-in or a more involved trip for those on the hunt for just the right gift or decoration.

Wilson Nurseries

2700 Palumbo Drive

Wilson Nurseries has several locations across the Bluegrass, including one right here in Lexington. The plant nursery has served as a go-to place for live Christmas tree buyers throughout central Kentucky, and alongside their impressive collection of trees are the variety of holiday workshops and events the nursery offers during the Christmas season. Their main location is also in Frankfurt, which is just a short trip away from Lexington.
