If you live in Indianapolis and have not been to this little gem of a chocolate shop, you are missing out. My personal favorites include the Lemon Chiffon truffle, the Key Lime truffle, and the Sun King Weemac truffle (named after one of our local breweries). My husband is partial to the chocolate covered Oreo cookies, my mother loves the Kanga bars and my sister likes their peanut butter crunch. During the holiday season if you visit the store, they will give you free samples of gelato and/or hot chocolate. Have I convinced you yet?
The Lilly House is part of the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) and these two place should definitely be on the holiday to do list if you live in Indy. The Museum is free and contains three floors of art the covers everything from Impressionist to African Art. The gift shop is out of this world (a great place to pick up a Christmas gift or two) and the Nourish Cafe is a delicious place to grab a sandwich or salad for lunch. Also included on the grounds of the IMA are the Lilly House and the greenhouse. Guests can tour the Lilly House free of charge and ogle at the beautiful decorations then you can visit the greenhouse and purchase a poinsettia.

Monument Circle is a cool place to walk around during the holidays. They have the lights up on the monument itself and other decorations lining the streets. You can take a carriage ride through the city and see some of the other monuments and the canal.
I love shopping local and the holidays are no exception. These are just a few of favorite places to go for Christmas gifts. Handmade Promenade is a pop up store that only hangs around during the holidays, but the rest of these places are open year round. Check em’ out.
One of the benefits of living in a city is that there are a lot of cool things to do around the holiday season. Some of these events include: Christmas at the Indianapolis Zoo.
