Top 100 places for gifts in Michigan

The holidays might look a little different this year, but everyone can appreciate a thoughtful gift. Supporting local businesses is more important now than ever, so we’ve compiled a list of the top places for gifts this holiday season in Michigan! From fancy chocolatiers to local bookstores, bike shops and home decor, there’s something here for everyone on your list. 

Methodology: This is an all-time list of the top places for holiday gift shopping in Michigan according to Yelp. We identified businesses in the gourmet, media, flowers, home decor, jewelry, sporting goods, toys and fashion categories, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. If a local chain appeared on the list more than once, we only included the highest rated location. All businesses on this list were marked as open as of November 5th, 2020. When available, all businesses on this list have a passing health score as of November 5th, 2020.
