Your Local Lafayette Holiday Gift Guide

Woman Christmas shopping in Lafayette

The season of giving is upon us, and we know firsthand how supporting small businesses can make a BIG impact on the community. To us, spreading holiday cheer means being mindful and intentional about where we put our dollars. Here are our top 4 reasons to shop local businesses instead of big-box stores or corporations:

  1. The money you spend stays in the community for building new infrastructure
  2. Local business owners support and give back locally
  3. Local businesses provide quality jobs
  4. You’re more likely to find unique and personal gift items

To help you celebrate another lovely Christmas season on the Bayou, we’ve come up with a list of our favorite holiday gifts from local retailers, makers, artisans, and providers in Lafayette and beyond! There is something special—edible, tangible, or experiential—for everyone on your list from these amazing Acadiana-owned and -operated businesses.

For the DIY-er

A gift card or night out at The Bougie Bar is the perfect holiday treat for the person in your life who loves to get creative and craft. Their team will guide guests through a complete candle-making class while you relax and drink wine! It’s the perfect place to have fun with your friends and family and enjoy a new experience together. Gift cards are available in all increments, and have no expiration date.

For the Brewmaster

A bag of beans from Rêve Coffee Roasters is your go-to gift for coffee-lovers in your life.

Inspired by the customs and spirit of our rich Cajun heritage, Reve is dedicated to fusing new and old traditions of coffee-roasting. They micro-roast every bean in-house and always ship the same day so that you can receive the freshest brew possible. They have four locations in Lafayette, carrying a variety of single-origin and blended coffees, as well as specialty espresso drinks and probiotic sodas, house baked pastries, and fresh breakfast and lunch offerings.

For the (Conscious) Fashionista

A piece of handcrafted jewelry from MIMOSA Handcrafted is sure to delight the stylish woman in your life who also appreciates the local community and culture. MIMOSA specializes in the ancient art of lost wax casting in bronze, sterling silver, and 14k gold. The best part? They give back and pay it forward locally! At checkout you can choose to donate 1% of your purchase to a variety of local nonprofits. Order your favorite piece online, or browse in-person at their Baton Rouge studio. Their physical and digital gift cards are also a great option.

For the Green Thumb

Plants and greenery are the gifts that keep on giving. All Seasons Nursery has been a Lafayette staple since 1992. Their retail garden center and gift shop center occupies a whopping 5 acres, with the finest shrubs, flowers, houseplants, and seasonal seed starts (herbs and veggies), as well as hardscape & landscaping materials and the professional and knowledgeable staff to help you create an outdoor oasis. Pick up a beautiful potted plant, a custom flower arrangement, an ornamental garden statue, or a gift card today!

For the Foodie

Cajun Crate is your one-stop-shop for the chef or foodie in your life. This online market offers Louisiana’s finest and tastiest grocery and specialty food products: pantry staples, dressings, sauces, seasonings, spices, snacks, sweets, jellies and more—all made in the Bayou state! By partnering with the state’s best local chefs, farmers, and vendors, they’re helping to promote local culture and cuisine, while also allowing smaller artisanal brands to gain exposure. If a gift card to Cajun Crate seems impersonal, then consider a monthly subscription—their subscription box delivers different curated items to your door each month!

For the One Who Has It All

We LOVE the idea of “experience” gifts for the people in your life who are hard to shop for, or those who have everything they need. Consider an annual membership, subscription, or season pass to their favorite local attraction. Here are a few of our favorites!

For Everyone Else on Your List

Want to give the gift of beauty, confidence and self-love? The stressors of the holiday season can wreak havoc on our skin, and at our Lafayette cosmetic surgery center and medical spa, we offer the opportunity to get pampered with a day of revitalizing aesthetic treatments tailored just for you.

Our menu of surgical and non-surgical procedures can help you (or your bestie) achieve your most stunning self possible, just in time for the new year. Some of our most popular skin and body treatments include chemical peels and facials, SkinPen microneedling, and Renuvion skin tightening.

Renowned cosmetic surgeon Dr. J. Kevin Duplechain and our staff of highly trained medical aestheticians, laser technicians, and injectors have years of experience helping patients achieve a healthy glow. Contact us today at (337) 456-3282 to arrange gift card purchases or schedule your consultation—or, send us a message online!
