For a truly memorable gift-giving experience, look beyond the ordinary and explore the extraordinary selection of apparel and accessories at Uptown Park’s women’s boutiques, many of which are owned by locals who know exactly what Houston shoppers want. These are not just the same gifts you’ll find at every other mall.

Instead, these are true specialty stores with distinctive, stylish flair.

BB1 Classic is known for its decidedly European flair and tailored touches, so finding the perfect gift for the woman who likes to stand out is a snap. M Penner’s women’s boutique is well-appointed with fine Italian scarves, jewelry and handbags exclusive to the Uptown Park store. Pop next door to Elizabeth Anthony for the best in American and European fashion designers and shop everything ready-to-wear, jewelry and handbags available only at Elizabeth Anthony.

Lovers of pretty, lacy things will find more than 100 brands of intimate apparel at Top Drawer Lingerie. Give the gift of a bra fitting and then gift card a shopping spree or delight her with buttery soft pajamas, robes and other decadent must-haves.

Cigar aficionados will appreciate the selection of cigars at Embajadores Fine Cigars, while the gift of perfect hair is just a DryBar gift certificate away. Jewelry meets art at High Gloss, a boutique featuring artist-made jewelry, accessories and design objects. Add something sparkly from Lewis Jewelers this season.
