Alon’s Bakery & Market
Whether you want to entertain or give the gift of food, Alon’s Bakery & Market in Dunwoody carries a wide range of gifts and specialty selections from regions all over the world. My first time in this European style market, I was impressed with the made-from-scratch selection of baked breads, European-style cakes, handmade pastries, gourmet sandwiches, freshly prepared foods, fine cheeses, and more.
Alon’s Bakery and Market is not just the place to pick up freshly baked goods, but also it is the perfect place to take friends or family for brunch. Using fresh, quality ingredients, their tasty breakfast and lunch items make for a great meal! Plus, the overall ambiance of this restaurant gives you the feeling you are visiting an authentic European market. It just has that hustle and bustle feeling of a busy cafe that serves everything.

Spruill Art Gallery
Nothing warms my heart more than supporting small businesses and local artists. Artists spend countless hours handcrafting beautiful pieces for us to enjoy, and there is no better to show your support than heading to the 25th Annual Holiday Artist’s Market at Spruill Gallery in Dunwoody.
From beautiful hand blown glass ornaments to cozy knitted pieces, Spruill Gallery has a holiday artist market you don’t want to miss. Support these local artists and find a unique gift for the people on your list. You can even give the gift of a gift card so your recipient can get whatever warms their heart.
Lolli & Pops – Perimeter Mall
Lolli & Pops, the purveyor of sweetness, is a such a fun nostalgic place to shop for unique gifts this holiday season. Every corner of this old-timey sweet shoppe is filled with wonders to delight both adults and children. Full-length glass cases full of fine chocolates and shelves full of candies!
From the packaging to the outfits the chocolatiers wear make this one of the most magical places in Perimeter Mall.
An oasis of sweetness, you’ll find the stuff chocolate dreams are made of here: truffles, macaroons, gummies, classic candies, and so much more. Personally, I fell in love with a few of the truffles. My absolute favorite is the Glitz & Glam truffle.
Gift the chocolate lovers in your life something they will remember! I’m pretty sure Santa would LOVE it if you left him some truffles or macaroons on Christmas Eve!
You can even find the perfect gift for the wine enthusiast in Dunwoody! Vino Venue, as the name suggests, combines a restaurant, wine bar, wine store, wine and culinary classes, and so many other unique experiences into one location. In my honest opinion, Vino Venue is brilliant. I love the concept of a venue that brings the patron so much more than just a restaurant. In fact, the day that I visited there was a ginerbgread house class going on for children. How cool is that! A place where mom can enjoy a glass of wine and chat with fellow moms while the kids decorate gingerbread houses!
Have you ever seen or heard of an enomatic wine dispensing machine? This unique wine station allows patrons to sample various wines using a Vino card that looks much like a credit card. You simply insert the card and make your selection. Then select how much you want to taste. The wine is automatically poured into your glass and the amount is deducted from your card. This is a great way to sample some of the more expensive wines without having to commit to an entire glass or bottle.
Whether you want to dine in the restaurant or create a custom wine basket for someone, Vino Venue is a gift in itself and definitely provides your recipient with something to remember.
