This year in Birmingham has been all about collaboration to make it through these challenging times, and the holiday season is no different. Here are a few Birmingham businesses combining their efforts to curate unique items that would make great gifts:
Chocolata x Yogi Dada
Artist Yogi Dada lent her colorful style to Chocolata’s signature chocolate bars to create a work of art. The Prophesy Bar, for example, is wrapped in Dada’s art. And the bars support a worthy cause. Fifty percent of the proceeds go to providing art supply to local Black artists through Forstall Art Center. More designs are available in the Dea Art gift set. You can find them here.
POSE x The Summit
Cultured To Create — a group of artists that include REV client Asthetik Bham — are hosting POSE. It’s a one-of-a-kind selfie museum through Jan 3 at The Summit. Get your holiday picture fix in 10 uniquely decorated rooms by appointment. Tickets are $25 and children under four are admitted for free. Even better? Santa is located in the museum this year. More info here.
Cottage Noir x Woodlawn Jewelry Co.
Two Woodlawn Street Market vendors are definitely more in this case. Cottage Noir—a lifestyle brand powered by our very own Woodlawn Urban Main Community Coordinator, Jason Avery— and Woodlawn Jewelry Co. launched a gender-neutral earring line. The neighbors used the architecture of Avery’s 1917 cottage as inspiration. Learn more here.
Naughty But Nice Kettle Corn Co. x other local small businesses
Naughty But Nice Kettle Corn Co. has taken collaboration to another level by partnering with not one but TWO other entrepreneurs! The first was a limited-edition bundle that included a comfy tee from Magic City T-shirts, a gallon of their kettle corn and a snack-sized bag. There’s also a box collaboration with Michelle’s Chocolate Lab that features a mini bag of hot cocoa kettle corn, a made from scratch marshmallow and a brownie. Shop here.
Shu Shop x Harvest Roots Ferments
Looking for a savory option? Look no further than this holiday pack. Shu Shop and Harvest Roots are offering a box packed with flavor that features everything from kimchi to hot sauce to mustard. The box also comes with recipe cards. In-store pick-up is still available. Order here.

We’ve talked about sports, but downtown has so much more to offer! Downtown Birmingham has so many experiences in store for you, which can also turn into life-long memories. And lucky for you, we’ve created a tool to make all that exploring so much easier!
Ever host an event where you ordered way too much food and end up with more leftovers than you can even fathom? We’ve been there too – until we learned about Magic City Harvest! Magic City Harvest is an organization working towards ending food waste & hunger in the Magic City. They acquire perishable food from schools, wholesale food distributors, restaurants, caterers, churches, event venues and grocery stores to donate to 30 community partners on the frontlines feeding the city’s hungry neighbors.
We are approaching the finish line for the 20th Street Refresh, which calls for a celebration – and you’re invited! The City Center Business Improvement District (BID), funded by downtown property owners, is partnering with the City of Birmingham and REV Birmingham to celebrate a refreshed Birmingham Green. Come join the party on May 20th from 4 to 8 p.m (with a special celebration happening at 6 p.m.)!
