Are you looking for convenient holiday shopping during this busy season? We have curated places off the beaten path to help you gift your loved ones with something unique from the best of Downtown Indy.


Grab your favorite foodie a seasonal chocolate box from The Best Chocolate In Town on Mass Ave. While you’re there, wander around to the many other unique shopping locations, from Silver in the City to Stout's Footwear. St. Elmo’s, a Downtown original, has bottled cocktails for gifting as well as their world-famous Shrimp Cocktail Sauce.

For a culinary "experience," consider booking a chocolate and wine class at SoChatti that will be sure to win over the taste buds. SoChatti holiday deals include 10% off all gift cards, 50% off chocolate, and 25% off fruit nectar through December 24, both in-store and online.
