Great Local Gift Ideas in Birmingham

Take a friend for a local cup of coffee and hammock time at Upswing.

A demonstration project designed by REV Birmingham, Upswing’s goal is to “prove and improve downtown’s market for retail.” Local start-ups will use converted shipping containers on the lot across from the Pizitz Food Hall. Colorful hammocks and rocking chairs are the perfect space to hang out and use the free wifi. Upswing will also host events at the space including yoga, dancing, outdoor movies and more. Visit for more information, calendar of events or to donate.
