Shoppers search for the perfect gift at Christmas Village at LOVE Park.

Review site Yelp has given Philadelphia five stars when it comes to shopping local.

In a list of the best gift-giving cities in the country, Yelp ranked Philadelphia at the top. To calculate the rankings, the website had to analyze millions of reviews to see which businesses in popular holiday-shopping categories mentioned the word "gift" most often.

The top 10 cities on the list are:

  1. Philadelphia
  2. Honolulu
  3. Seattle
  4. Oakland, California
  5. Portland, Oregon
  6. Oklahoma City
  7. New Orleans
  8. Burbank, California
  9. Brooklyn, New York
  10. Denver

In a season of giving, Philadelphians enjoy an abundance of local shops with unique and charming goods. Reading Terminal Market is marvelous all year round, and a new Holiday Market just opened at Dilworth Park to complement the nearby Christmas Village at LOVE Park.

The wide array of options can make it hard to choose just what to buy. If you're still stuck what to stuff in your stockings, check out PhillyVoice's gift-giving guide, parts one and two.
