The YES List – Yes Louisville’s Holiday Gift Guide [#ShopLocal]

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Which, ironically, comes with lots of potential stress over finding something special for all the people on your list.

While we 100% do not believe that gifts make the holiday, we also LOVE finding things that we know our family & friends will enjoy! So, we decided to put together a list of some of our local favorites to inspire your holiday shopping!

We’re rolling the list out gradually over the next few days, so REFRESH for more of our faves & enjoy shopping LOCAL!!!

1 The New Blak

The New Blak is a Louisville based fashion company creating original designs utilizing the skills of local seamstresses! They seek to empower women through conscious fashion & WE LOVE IT!

2 The Beer Syrup Company

The Beer Syrup Company reduces craft beers into simple syrups that can be used on everything from waffles to ice cream to grilling glaze! Beer Syrup is also great as a cocktail mixer. We featured their Semi-Dry Cider Syrup in our Berry Louisville cocktail at our Yes Louisville Launch Party!

Their Kentucky Breakfast Gift Bag includes all 3 of the original flavors in 5oz bottles; Bourbon Barrel Stout, Pecan Nut Brown and Chocolate Porter. The gift bag also includes a few of their favorite Kentucky Proud products that are breakfast staples in the Bluegrass; a 5.5oz bag of Weisenberger Mills Pancake Mix and a 4oz bag of Red Hot Roasters Organic Coffee. $35

With all these combined at the breakfast table, it will make you proud to have shopped local with Kentucky made products! Available online & at 5-0-Lou!

4 Weightless Float Center

Life can be stressful & it's hard to take time to decompress. This holiday, give your loved ones the gift of relaxation & stress relief with a 90-minute float at Weightless Float Center in Distillery Commons!

Don't let the idea of floating throw you off. It's sterile to the max, you're only in about 8 inches of water, you don't have to close the lid (so no fear of enclosure) & you have complete privacy! Our staff is wild about floating & loves the many benefits that come from dedicated time to turn off our brains & let our bodies & minds recharge.

Other benefits of floating include: pain management, increased blood circulation, increased immune function, heightened senses, improved athletic performance, & MORE! Weightless also has massage & sauna services available. Grab a gift card or book a float for someone today...& it's okay if that someone is yourself.

90-Minute Float - $60
