Shopping Local This Holiday Season

Tis the season! It’s time to start checking items off of your holiday shopping list and Nantucket has no shortage of great gifts for everyone in your life. We always think it is important to shop local whenever possible, so we’ve put together a list of favorite places to make your shopping experience easier.

Mitchell’s Book Corner & Nantucket Bookworks 

For the bookworm on your holiday list, head over to one of the bookstores in town, Mitchell’s on the corner of Main and Orange, or Nantucket Bookworks on Broad Street. A book is always a fabulous gift to give and to receive! Both stores have a wide variety of options – everything from classics, to local favorites, to bestsellers, to new releases!

Nantucket Looms

An island staple for 50 years, Nantucket Looms has everything for the home one could imagine. Blankets, dishes, Christmas ornaments, candles, furniture, and more! They are eager to help you check the final gifts off your shopping list, plus they will wrap it up beautifully for you to save yourself a step!


Parchment is our go-to for all things stationary! They’ve relocated to New Street in Sconset, but they still have all the paper products one would ever need. They are open Friday through Monday in Sconset so take a drive and visit the east end. Check out their instagram for some gift-inspo!

Milly & Grace

Milly & Grace, located in the heart of downtown Nantucket, has stocking stuffers galore. Candles, holiday ornaments, candies, accessories, and more! Fill up your stocking over with the girls at Milly & Grace. They also have a wide array of beautiful winter clothes to keep you warm all season long.

Roastd General Store

Next time you need your caffeine fix, visit Roastd on Orange Street on your way into town. Lynn has her shelves stocked with all sorts of holiday goodies and is always eager to dole out a recommendation or two!

Restaurant Gift Certificates

While we aren’t spending lots of time eating out at one of Nantucket’s world class restaurants these days, we want our beloved restaurants to still be around when this pandemic is over. A gift-certificate to a favorite restaurant is the perfect gift for the foodie on your list.

Donation to Island Non-Profit

Nantucket thrives on our non-profits and they all need our help more than ever. A donation in a loved one’s name to a favorite charity or non-profit is a perfect gift. Click here for a list of Nantucket non-profits.
