Menlo Park is brimming with shops to buy last minute holiday gifts

by Linda Hubbard on December 21, 2013

Over the last week of so, we’ve been spotlighting local merchants, who, we believe, are worthy of your attention during the holiday gift buying season. We’ve covered other merchants in the past. Here’s a round up to tweak your memory.

In need of athletic shoes or wear? Regular customers have come to expect personal attention at Lisa Taggert’s and Jim Gother’s Fleet Feet (pictured above). Note: We loved their holiday card so much, we’re featuring it at the bottom of this post.

Kepler’s has been the place to buy books in Menlo Park for over 50 years.

In addition to women’s clothing, Lee Murphy’s store, Kicks, also has a wide selection of accessories.

Is there a toy made that’s not stocked at Cheeky Monkey? Here you’ll find the usual, and the unusual.

While primarily a destination for home furnishings and design advice,  Blair Morgan’s HOME store also has gifts such as vases.

Is there a beer lover on your list? At Willows Market, you can choose from over 1,000.

Carrie and Colin Jenkin’s Occasions store is the place for personalized gifts.

Think top of the head, and stop by Fino Fino in Sharon Heights to survey Carolyn Busch’s selection of hats.

Since we visited, Beth Philbin’s Heart on Your Wrist has expanded its retail selection of jewelry.

Few downtowns nowadays sport old-fashioned candy stores like Suzi Tinsley’s Sugar Shack.

Lynn Macy has been offering kind words for pets and their owners for over 20 years at The Pet Place, a shop that’s always stocked with great gifts for furry friends.

Bikes and their accessories on your gift list? Rainer Zaechelein at Menlo Vello will steer you in the right direction.
