Holiday Shopping in Watertown

Holiday shopping can be a daunting and overwhelming task. That said, there’s something endearing and nostalgic about stepping into stores where you can see and touch the merchandise, chat with the sales associates, and check out the holiday decor while picking out the perfect gifts for everyone on your list. Here are our top suggestions for holiday shopping in the Watertown area.

For one-stop shopping head on over to The Arsenal Project, where you can hit up a variety of stores to find gifts for friends and family of any age. The candle lovers on your list will appreciate a gift from Yankee Candle in one of their festive fragrances, such as Festival of Lights or Candy Cane Lane.  The gamer in your life will be thrilled if you popped into GameStop for one of the largest selections around. Other crowd pleasers like Foot Locker, Bath and Body Works, and Forever 21, will make your trip super efficient and you’ll leave feeling like a holiday shopping ninja. 

To get even more of your shopping wrapped up - pun intended, of course - head on over to the Watertown Target at 550 Arsenal Street. The Target shopping experience is always super convenient and you can get everything you need: gifts for the fam, lights and ornaments to trim the tree, ingredients to make the holiday dinner, and the perfect outfit to wear to that holiday work party.

If you’re looking to shop on a slightly smaller scale, then head on over to Westcott Mercantile at 63 Leonard Street in Belmont. This “modern general store” offers a mix of both vintage and new products as well as crafts from local and regional artisans. Fastachi, at 598 Mount Auburn Street in Watertown, stocks a wide variety of nuts, nut products, chocolates, and gourmet snacks. Their Fastachi Nut Gift Baskets are handmade and artfully arranged and are sure to be appreciated by even the pickiest person on your shopping list.  And check out Watertown Main Street Florist at 76 Main Street for that perfect holiday themed flower delivery. A sure way to score some extra brownie points (or a kiss under the mistletoe, perhaps) with that certain someone special!
