So you need a gift for your friend/parent/sibling/significant other/dog groomer. You could go to the mall and get a mass-produced item from a chain. Or you could visit one of St. Louis great, independent shops and find something truly unique. Which sounds better to you?

We rounded up 23 locally owned stores where you can find just the thing for that special someone. Whether you're shopping for a cook, artist, jewelry lover or someone else in your life, one of these places is bound to have what you need -- and didn't even know you wanted. The best part? At these shops, you'll be putting money back into your community -- and may not even have to leave your neighborhood to visit them.
