Gifts

As a world-famous historic destination, Alexandria sees a steady stream of visitors, most of which come looking for gifts. For mementos from across the Old Dominion, head to the Virginia Shop or the nearby Christmas Attic, a 40-year favorite with holiday offerings year-round.

Fitting for a locale near the nation's capital, there is an array of international offerings: Indian jewelry and textiles at Indus; wee Irish goods at the Irish Walk; and Ethiopian furniture and jewelry at St. George Gallery. For the ultimate personal touch, check out the Little Monogram Shop, with personalized gifts like hats, briefcases and baby blankets while at Del Ray Variety, shoppers find a traditional variety store with crafts, souvenirs and day-to-day items for any traveler.
