With the holiday season quickly approaching, it’s getting to that time where we all start brainstorming gift ideas for our loved ones during the holidays. I don’t know about you, but I only like to give gifts I know my friends and family will love and/or use frequently. 

However, there are always those people that you need to think “out of the box” for when it comes to gifts because it seems they already have everything and more that they would ever need. When it comes to those loved ones, I like to think of quirky gifts that no one else could or would buy them. Luckily, there are a bunch of unique and quirky shops in Sarasota with locally crafted goods that everyone and anyone would love. Check out this list of Sarasota's most unique shops below before heading out to shop till you drop this holiday season! 

And be sure to return to 941area before shopping for the holidays because our shopping guides will be published soon!
