Need a Gift? You Can Still Shop These Local Boutiques.
Looking for a special occasion present, a little something pretty or a new pair of running shoes? You can get the goods without the germs. Here's how.
During times like these, a little effort to let someone know you’re thinking of them goes a long way—and in some cases, delivery is even free. Their brick-and-mortar shop might be closed, and travel/shipping restrictions may have put pressure on the flower supply chain, but Company Flowers owners John and Marnie Nicholson are still taking online orders. Select a “Florist’s Choice” arrangement ($75.50-$92.45) featuring seasonal blooms like flowering cherry tree branches, hydrangeas, roses and snapdragons, and you’ll score free local delivery. // 2107 N.

In the early days of coronavirus-related closures, Le Village Marche was hosting virtual tours and posting product images to Instagram and Facebook. Interested customers could direct message, email, or call with order questions. Payment was taken via phone or Venmo, and orders could be retrieved via free shipping, delivery or curbside pickup. Now, the Parisian-themed shop is kicking things up a notch with an online store. Popular wares like lavender-scented candles, lotion and soap can be ordered online and shipped within two business days. // 2800 South Randolph St., Arlington
We could all use a drink these days, couldn’t we? Why settle for a basic vodka tonic when you can support a small business and get your hands on a botanical craft cocktail kit? Lemoncello Boutique has four flavors that, when paired with vodka, gin or tequila, make for an aesthetically pleasing and tasty beverage. If bath bombs, salts, face rollers and other spa items are more your style, they’ve got those, too—and more in the online store or via a Facetime personal shopping experience. Orders can be taken online, over the phone or via email, and then shipped for free, delivered or picked up on the sidewalk. // 4518 Lee Highway, Arlington
