They call that briskly shrinking shoulder season between Thanksgiving and Christmas “the Christmas creep,” but it’s a slice of retail that’s already on the endangered list. Some stores get their holiday gear up the day after Halloween. Most people don’t mind the festivity. That’s why stores like Disney’s Days of Christmas exist! This boutique – loaded down with all things Mickey & Co. for the holidays – is open all year. Custom ornaments and other goodies delight visitors on the hunt for special keepsakes, but families cannot exist on “Christmassy” gifts alone. That's why we’re including lots of variety in this Orlando shopping round-up. For the dog lover in your life, we submit Winter Park's Doggie Door, though their wares reach beyond the pet passionate into the realm of travel, wine and more. And speaking of wine, sommeliers at the Wine Barn are happy to recommend you an ideal bottle at a perfect price point (and a gourmet brick-oven pizza while you consider). Are there any cigar aficionados in your circle? Look no further than Corona Cigar. Make its downtown location the last stop on your excursion. It not only has just about any gift your tobacco enthusiast might want, you can reward yourself with a smoke and a drink once all the shopping's done.
