Christmas is right around the corner, which means you need to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list. That’s a lot of pressure. Luckily, Monroe and West Monroe have all of your shopping needs covered, and super-luckily, the cities are conveniently located along the Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights. Everybody wins! Antique Alley West Monroe’s Antique Alley allows you to shop at over 30 classic antique shops and trendy boutiques stocked full of clothing, furniture, home décor, spices, and so much more without ever having to go through the typical shopping motions of leaving the store, finding your car, loading your car, driving all the way to the next stop, and then doing it all over again. Just park, explore, and shop till you drop. With so many options, this is the place to find the perfect gift all season long! Some of my favorite shops along Antique Alley include The Gingerbread House and Serendipity. The Gingerbread House has the perfect gift for everyone—even the four-legged friends in your life! The shop also carries an impressive assortment of bath bombs and handmade soaps. Serendipity is the place on Antique Alley to find fine jewelry for your loved ones (or yourself). The shop even carries brand favorites like Pandora, Alex & Ani, and Dogeared! I get excited just talking about it. aul Michael Company This home décor/furniture store will make any up-and-coming interior designer’s mouth water. Seriously. I’ve never seen so many beautiful things in one place. It’s impossible to walk in without finding the perfect gift for yourself the ladies on your list, as the store is stocked with the latest in seasonal décor, art, candles, and almost anything else you can think of.
The shopping options don’t stop here, though. Monroe-West Monroe has tons of other shops that I highly recommend—The Spice & Tea Exchange, Mojo Boutique, Bayou Beaux, the Duck Commander store, and so many others. So what are you waiting for? Monroe-West Monroe is waiting and ready with all of your Christmas shopping needs. Happy shopping!
