2. Banyan Tree
I discovered Banyan Tree when I was out one evening in Tremont with a friend. When you walk into Banyan Tree you are immersed in local vibes, unique gifts, and trendy fashions all in one. You can see why I am excited to share this local boutique with my readers for the holiday season.
When I went on my site visit I met with Marina, Head Stylist, who showed me some of her favorite holiday gift ideas for the holiday season.
The first items Marina shared with me were from Banyan Tree’s exclusive line called Figwood. Figwood is locally designed here in Cleveland by Banyan Tree’s owner, Christie Murdoch and made fair in Indonesia. The clothes are made for comfort purposes, and fit easy for any body type. The line also includes a unique jewelry line of charms that offers bangles, necklaces and earrings that one can add different charms to. I fell in love with the jewelry pieces she showed me and all the Ohio charms you can add to make a piece show your hometown pride, while also looking chic.
Marina was also wearing one of their basic shift dresses from the line which is easy to style and wear anywhere. She also showed me a look in another color. Lastly, Marina showed me all their leather handbags from the line. I really like the versatility of this shoulder bag and it would make a perfect gift for one of your best girlfriends this holiday season.
Banyan Tree also offers home goods and glassware items. These are gifts on my holiday gift giving list. On my first visit to Banyan tree I purchase the Cleveland wine glasses, they come in plastic so they are perfect to use anywhere. I always get so many compliments on them! Besides the Cleveland glassware they also have other quirky dishes and Figwood Cleveland wood signs that come in different dimensions and designs. There is so much to see and look at it’s hard not to want to fill your home with their items.
Gifts for Everyone
As you tour Banyan Tree you realize they really do have a gift for everyone on your holiday list. Besides all the chic fashion and unique jewelry pieces they also have merchandise for that special person in your life. They have a kids and baby section as well a section for the yoga fanatic in your life. I loved discovering all the goods Banyan Tree has to offer and you will to this holiday season.
