Step Out Buffalo’s Official 2021 Holiday Gift Guide is here, WNY! If you got a good handle on your gift giving strategy thanks to Parts 1 and 2 of our gift guide, cheers to you. If not, now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s seriously time to get down to business.
To make shopping for everyone on your list a breeze, we’ve pulled together a list of 41(!) fantastic local gift ideas, broken up by category below. The categories include things like wellness and self care, for the home, for food and drink lovers, experiences, apparel and accessories, and we even have a special section for gift boxes – AKA the easiest most put together gift you’ll ever give.
As usual, we at Step Out Buffalo believe the best gifts you can give are ones that come from local artisans, shops and businesses. Plus, giving locally purchased gifts often comes with a great story to tell as you’re giving, because nothing brings warm and fuzzy feels like supporting your neighbor’s business.
Throughout this Step Out Buffalo holiday gift guide you’ll find a long list of products and services that make fantastic gifts for friends, family and hosts – all from Step Out Buffalo’s local small business partners. Happy Holidays, WNY!

39. Custom Boot Fitting From Snowflake Ski Shop
From Snowflake Ski Shop
The gift that keeps on giving for your loved one (or yourself!) Custom fitting ski and snowboard boots means getting the boot to fit like an extension of the foot. At Snowflake Ski Shop we do that by creating a custom footbed to support the foot inside of the boot, molding the liner and modifying the boot itself to accommodate the unique fitting issues of different shaped feet. Most skiers & snowboarders haven’t been exposed to the idea of custom fitting gear to the rider. In the simplest terms, custom fitting means making boots that are designed for the “average” foot and body shape, fit a specific individual’s unique feet and stance.

From Spruce On Main
Spruce has a large jewelry section including this So Very Merry Christmas boxed bracelet.
The original necklace for eyewear. Not all collars were made to hold frames. Not all frame styles sit well on a collar. Tucking your designer eyewear in a pocket unprotected or laying it down is a recipe for regret. Instead, play those frames close to the vest with the original necklace for eyewear, LaLoop.
