DIXON, CA (MPG) - Inside the Mother Houseplant Boutique where one would expect to find healthy green foliage to make great gifts, one will find Tianna Ching displaying hair scrunchies, stationary, art, jewelry, designed T-shirts, ornaments, and beautiful scarves among the plethora of plants.

“We created holiday boxes, too, that sell for $25 for small and $35 for large,” she said. “It makes gift-giving easy.” There’s even unique macrame plant holders if you’re wanting to dress up a simple plant.

This company at 350 West A Street is one of dozens across town that has sprouted new retail. In the past few years, Dixon entrepreneurs have increased their retail footprint and today, almost every place open for business has created walls, racks, or cupboards brimming with perfectly wonderful gift ideas.

Cheery and bright colored-door mats with matching garden flags are new at Solano Baking Company in the Safeway Shopping Plaza. Kara Benz, daughter of owner Kendra, was busy filling the racks with charming cookie cutters with recipes attached, aprons, coffee sets, honey, and wine glasses.

Still boasting a large variety of pretty doughnuts or Christmas cookies, the muffin loaves of banana, apple, or cinnamon bread with pretty ribbon are always a great way to say you care. Their friendly staff is happy to help.

We’re not forgetting the do-it-yourselfers in town as we found Amos Metz Equipment and Rentals had a selection of safety glasses, Fastenal had a huge selection of tools, and there’s Carthart jackets, gloves, and great work boots at Tractor Supply not to mention grills, shop-vacs, and lots of lawn and yard equipment at Ace Dixon Hardware and Lumber.

For the outdoorsy folks, there is the spacious showroom of Pacific Flyway Outdoor Sporting Goods and KUIU High Performance Hunting Gear stores at 1690 and 1920 North Lincoln Street respectively. For the car enthusiasts, check out Napa Auto Parts, O’Reilly’s, or AutoZone even for simple pleasures like fur steering wheel covers.

Algood Ink offers gift certificates for a tattoo in downtown plus he has a unique idea of etching wine bottles that can be personalized for someone special.

For the real Holly-Jolly Christmas types, there are these: Pip Wine Bar that also does gift certificates and put together nice Christmas baskets, Michael’s Market with a huge selection of hard liquor, and even Ruhstallers for some of the best tasting beer brewed locally.

For your 4-legged family, there is Higby’s at 8470 Currey Road with all kinds of supplies specific to horses, but livestock as well"'same as Tractor Supply.

Gift certificates are available at all our restaurants and there’s just too many too list but certificates are also great for classes like at Busy Bee Yoga, In Stitches, It’s All About the Scrapbook, Ramtown Karate, Every Baking Moment cake Decorating, and even Pip’s Wine Bar Pairing Class or excursions. Even Bangkok Garden is now offering a Thai Cooking Class.

For herbal enthusiasts, there are a variety of goodies including cookies at Dixon Wellness and Highway Dispensary.

For clothing, you’d be surprised how many places Dixon now sports and all within easy walking distance downtown. There is Bella Moda inside the Linde Lane Tea Room, the A-List on the corner of A and First Streets, Kula’s Tanning Salon (yellow door on B Street) and Uptown Collective on North First Street which offers men and women’s clothing and accessories in addition to scented soaps, candles, baby items, and more.

Sweet children’s hats, gloves, and scarves are found inside Cynde’s Salon & Boutique along with home decor items and a nice selection of classy jewelry.

For the western or old-time toys and clothes, check out Robben’s Department Store which, by the way, is the oldest department store in California last we checked.

With cloudy skies and more rain forecast for this coming week, why brave I-80 when all your Christmas shopping can be done right here in Dixon where your sales support your local business owners and the community?
