The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Gifts are great, but opening my stocking on Christmas morning has always been one of my favorite things. *Santa* has always left the cutest trinkets and candies, like chocolate oranges, handmade soaps and treats for my pup. 

If you're looking for local stocking stuffers, you've come to the right place. Here are several local stores where you can get great, small gifts for all your favorite folks.


For the Trendsetter

Personify Shop in downtown Duluth has glamorous gifts for the fashion-forward friends in your life. In this store, you can grab the latest Swell bottle or Rifle Paper Co. planner.


For the Nerd

That's a term of endearment. If you're trying to appease someone who loves comics and video games, stop by Galactic Quest for unique comic books and other novelty items. They have 2 Gwinnett locations (Lawrenceville and Buford) to serve all of your geeky needs. 


For the World Traveler

Mix things up, and toss in some international fare from Taste of Britain. The store offers traditional English china, as well as snacks, teas and other items from the U.K.
