5 Great Places to Shop Online for the Holidays

Looking for Christmas gifts? Here’s where to find some great ones.

With coronavirus case counts rising, we will be shopping online more than usual this holiday season, and that can mean limited options. Amazon, Walmart, and Target can only offer so much. There are, however, many other unique stores that can provide the perfect Christmas gifts for you and your family. Here are some of The Watchdog’s favorites:

  • Lush

Lush is the perfect place to shop for that person who adores self-care and sustainability. This store sells bath bombs, soaps, scrubs, makeup, shampoos, conditioners, and many other products that are all made with sustainable and fair-trade products. To make your holidays even easier, Lush sells prewrapped gift sets, many of which are under $25! You can view all their products here. 

  • Uncommon Goods

Uncommon Goods sells exactly what it advertises – uncommon goods, making it the perfect place to shop for the person who never knows what they want for the holidays. The store has all the unique things you could not find anywhere else, such as a Smartphone-Controlled Paper Airplane or a DIY Mochi Ice Cream Kit. They are also doing their part to highlight and celebrate Black makers and creators.  You can view all their products here.

  • Philadelphia Printworks
