They’re the little people in our lives but they acquire a lot of stuff, and fast. Shops like these four local favorites that stock their shelves with necessities for kiddos like myriad sock monkeys, colorful tutus and embroidered cardigans aren’t helping the situation. Whether you’re shopping for your niece’s birthday or your bestie’s first baby, here are the stops we recommend looking in to. It’s likely you’ll find a little treasure for you, too. (Never have we used the word “cute” so much as we did in these four stories. Sometimes, there just isn’t a better word for the job.)
Kinder Winkel: Despite the wide array of cute products, Kinder Winkel is easy to shop and fun to browse. You’ll enjoy children’s artwork, banners swinging overhead, bookshelves stocked with parenting guides and children’s reads … and the blessed sale rack. We see good stuff marked down every time we go. We daresay Sandy has never looked quite so cute. Read the entire post here.
The Children’s Hour: Three parts boutique (women’s, children’s and gift) and another part children’s bookstore, the Children’s Hour is the kind of place that, if threatened, we’d gladly put on our fight faces for. It’s one of Salt Lake’s gems, offering locals some hand-holding in terms of style forecasting, but warm enough to make you feel at home. Read the entire post here.
All Tucked In: You can browse a handful of European shoes for ladies, scan jewelry from local designers, spy gorgeous satin ruffled dresses for little gals, shop for popular children’s games, find a cute frock for you, and thumb through lots and lots of books for the kiddos in your life—you’ll even get recommendations from resident experts.

Four and Twenty Sailors: It’s fun when the place where your Grandma used to take you to pick out a special “Easter dress” as a kid turns out to be the same place where you wouldn’t mind treating yourself to an “Easter” dress, top, pant or shoe in your adult life. There’s nothing quite like a personal attachment to a local boutique. Read the entire post here.
