As a Denver native, it’s been really fun and exciting to see all of the changes happening to the city in the past few years. It’s grown so much and has really turned into such a cool city with endless things to do and places to go. Cherry Creek North has always been a buzzworthy neighborhood but in recent years it has really turned into the premier place for dining, nightlife and of course, shopping! 

Cherry Creek North has over 250 businesses that make up the 16 blocks, and 175 of them are small businesses. Being a small business owner myself, I love supporting and shopping small whenever I can. Brunch followed by strolling around and checking out the many art galleries and jewelry stores is seriously my ideal Sunday.  With the holidays coming up, I figured it was the perfect opportunity to show you around one of my absolute favorite neighborhoods and show you how you can get so much of your holiday shopping done all while walking and enjoying the charming streets of Cherry Creek North.   


244 Detroit Street

To start my day, I just have to get some coffee. Aviano is one of my go-to coffee shops. I love the vibe of Aviano, the atmosphere is cool and hip without being pretentious. It’s the best place to have a meeting, catch up with friends over a matcha latte or bring your laptop to get some work done, oh and did I mention the patio is dog friendly?! The coffee is delicious and the presentation, IG worthy!


2432 East 3rd Avenue

Denver Darling Boutique is exactly as the name describes, absolutely darling. This cute shop was recently opened by my fellow blogger and friend, Abby of Denver Darling. You can find just about anything a girl could ask for here. Need a holiday dress for a party? Some pretty jewelry or candles for a gift? A casual sweater? Denver Darling has it all! I think that accessories like purses and jewelry make great gifts for the ladies on your list. Not to mention the prices here are budget-friendly!


2757 East 3rd Avenue

This gift shop is such a gem, I could honestly spend hours in there. They have gifts for seriously everyone, including babies and kids! Their variety of handmade gifts are all unique and you can spot the locally made items by the purple tag. You can get everything from cheeky cocktail napkins and glasses with hilarious sayings on them, to jewelry, cookbooks, handmade soaps and bath salts, the list goes on! They are known for their beautiful gift wrapping, which is always a bonus!


2717 East 3rd Avenue

Nothing like a little pampering for yourself or for a loved one! Live Love Lash is the place to go for everything lashes, but they also offer makeup, permanent makeup, microblading, waxing, body contouring and tons of skin care and beauty products. They also have Hydrate IV available on Thursdays! 


261 Fillmore Street

This wine shop has been here for so long—I’m talking almost 50—years so you know they are doing something right! I get more into wine every year it seems like. I love to try different wines from different regions and learn about each one, what the notes are and what it pairs well with, luckily the experts at The Vineyard are super approachable and more than willing to chat you up about the massive variety of wines they carry. One of my favorite things about The Vineyard is their Wine of the Month Club. It’s the perfect way to try different wines and save money! Can we talk about what a great gift this would make?! It’s great for that person on your list that you have no clue what to get them and it’s a gift that will give all year long! 

Small Business Saturday is happening November 24th so be sure to mark your calendars and get ready to shop small! 

If you still have someone on your list that you just can’t figure out what to get them or just want to give them the many options that Cherry Creek North has to offer, you can always opt for a gift card!! You can order your gift card online here and have it delivered to your home (or whoever you’d like to gift it to!) oror pick it up in person at their office 2401 E. 2nd Ave, Suite 150
