I know there are some of you out there who are incredibly organized, started your shopping two months ago, and are just putting the finishing touches on your gift wrap tonight. But then there's those of you who are just getting started tonight. This particular Santa Fe blog is for the latter.

Santa Fe, New Mexico is actually a very popular shopping destination, known for its unique stores and small boutiques. In Santa Fe, even when you do last minute shopping, you can still get a very personal, one-of-a-kind gift...

For your Mom, the Art lover

This is Santa Fe's historic shopping center, known for its numerous art galleries (more than 100), unique specialty shops, restaurants, and historic adobe architecture. The best part is, the galleries are open late just for holiday shopping!

Back at the Ranch

What's Santa Fe without a good Cowboy store? Specializing in the largest collection of handmade cowboy boots in the world, Back at the Ranch is a high-end Western boutique known throughout the world for its custom-made and in-stock boots. You can even custom design your own logo, brand or theme!

For your girlfriend (you can never go wrong with jewelry)
Charlotte Jewelry
66 E San Francisco Street
Santa Fe, NM 87591
Stunning stainless steel, sterling silver, 18K gold, palladium and platinum jewelry. You can make a gift really personal by creating your own jewelry piece, by changing it from a ring into a pendant or bracelet.

For your co-worker, you didn't realize she was going to get you something!
108 Galisteo Street
Santa Fe, NM 87501
This is the everything store of Santa Fe. It's a mix between a boutique, a general store, a shoe store, a jewelry store, and a clothing store. Find everything from fashion, jewelry, and folk art to unusual kitchen and table top decor.  They have a ton of holiday discounts running right now so it's a great place to stop before Christmas.

The one thing you never have to worry about in Santa Fe New Mexico is the "every day" or the "mass produced." Santa Fe, the City Different, is all about being just that - different!  Whether that be the shops, or the Santa Fe homes and the communities that surround them. For example, the traditional and historical setting of the Tesuque Village, home to the Tesuque Pueblo, but also home to stunning real estate of other Santa Fe homeowners. Or what about Railyard Real Estate, which boasts live-in art studios, but also 13 acres of open space. Words really do not do Santa Fe Real Estate justice. You have to come see it for yourself. When you're ready to take the next step to buy or sell your Santa Fe home, please give me a call.

Until then, wishing you a very Merry Santa Fe Christmas!
