Great St. Louis Gift Shops

Whether there's a special occasion upcoming in your Google calendar, or you just don't dare show up back at home without a souvenir for the kids, our choices for gift shopping will make it easy to knock out your list!

Craft Alliance

This gallery dedicated to contemporary fine craft also houses a stellar shop where you’ll find the beautiful and the functional, all handmade by artisans. From one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces to more lovely takes on the everyday (quirky pewter measuring spoons, handsome wooden boxes and so forth), it’s way beyond the big box. 

Bowood Farms

Nominally, it’s a garden shop and nursery. Except that it also features a lovely restaurant (Café Osage), and a terrific shop with small-batch cards and stationary, luxurious natural perfumes, neat kids’ gifts and toys, and of course, vases/planters/containers…in case you actually buy a plant. 4605 Olive St., 314.454.6868

Enchanting Embellishments

Do you have that person on your gift list who’s a little over-the-top? Who wouldn’t wear one necklace when fifteen would do? Who tells it like it is (and might take a nip from a flask now and again while doing so?) You might find the perfect present for her here: statement jewelry, elegant tableware, cheeky accessories and so much more. 4732 McPherson Ave., 314.361.5300
