While it may be easy to drive to Kansas City to a mall to do your Christmas shopping, the experience and quality of products may be different than other options.

The businesses in downtown Ottawa have much to offer when it comes to buying gifts for the holiday season.

If you are looking for jewelry, furniture, sportswear, candles, trinkets, gift cards and much more, Ottawa shouldn't be ruled out as an option.

With new businesses opening in town like Boyd Furniture and Front Row Sports, it gives more opportunity to shop in downtown.

When shopping for the important in your life whether it is your mom, cousin, best friend, brother or significant other, there are several options in Ottawa.

Prairie Rose and Country Living offer home décor and other trinkets that would be absent at many big malls.

If you are looking for a new TV or audio equipment, Audio/Video Concepts has a wide variety of options.

Turner Flowers and Country Store and Ann's Blossom Boutique both offer many options when it comes to flower arrangements and other gifts.

Keim Bakery offers homemade cookies, cakes and other treats that would make a nice addition to the holiday season.

If you are looking to buy earrings, a necklace or other jewelry, Sutton's Jewelry has a wide selection to choose from. For the more rugged people on your shopping list, The Gun Guys has guns, hunting gear and other accessories.

If you are looking for something original or one-of-a-kind, Market Antiques has many options for all styles and tastes.

While these are only a few of the stores in downtown Ottawa that are prime for shopping, there are many others.

There is also always the option of gift cards to these stores and other stores and restaurants in Ottawa. When it comes time to do your holiday gift shopping, give downtown Ottawa a look first.

You might be surprised about what you find.
