Still have some holiday shopping to do? We have a few ideas.
New books by local authors: Rock Creek Park A to Z, by David and Lorraine Swerdloff (at Politics and Prose). A Nation on Trial, by Margery Elfin (via Amazon or P&P online). The Demon in Business Class, by Anthony Dobranski (at Politics and Prose).
Gift cards/certificates to the local restaurants.
Create a locally-made gift basket with jars of Comet Pizza sauce and honey from neighborhood bees at Little Red Fox, chocolates and cheeses from Soapstone Market, and pickles and other delectables from Bread Furst.
Unique pottery and other hand-made pieces at Terasol Bistro and Artisan Gallery.
Stock your friend’s bar/bar cart at Calvert Woodley Fine Wines & Spirits, Van Ness Wines and Liquors and Sheffield Wine & Liquor Shoppe.
A book or gift certificate from Politics and Prose is always a fine gift. Pick up a gift for yourself, as well.
Shop Hillwood Museum’s elegant and distinctive array of merchandise. Hillwood’s museum shop is a hidden gem, away from the hustle and bustle of the mall, and with a delightfully curated assortment of gifts that you won’t find online. Or, give the gift of membership to family and friends, so they can enjoy the magic of Hillwood throughout the year.
