Holiday Gift Guide from the Dixon Museum Store

It's a week before Christmas, and some of you still don't have gifts for everyone on your list.  Confession: I don't either. Time really gets away from me, especially around the holidays.  BUT there is no reason for stress, because the Dixon Museum Store could easily be your one stop shop for those last minute gifts you need.  With the help of the staff, I have put together a gift guide for many of the people on your list.

We will start with the kiddos.  Everyone wants their child to be intelligent, and kids just want to have fun.  That's where Eeboo brand comes in.  They have great games and gifts for children that are both educational and fun. You can make the children on your list and their parents happy. 

I also threw in something Star Wars just for good measure. This Family Field Guide makes a good gift for Star Wars aficionados and those like me who know very little about "the force."

Next on the list are the hard to buy for women in your life.  Whether its your niece, your friend or your mother-in-law, it can be difficult to find a gift that suites each woman's unique taste.  


For the woman on the go, the pursecase, as seen on Shark Tank, is a great option.  It holds her phone and all the essentials for going out on the town. We carry it in iphone sizes 4, 5, 6 and 6+, and they range in price from $25 to $35.


For the hostess or the more sophisticated woman on your list, these Table Art serving utensils by Michael Michaud Design are a unique and beautiful gift. They are also good for impressing your Mother-in-law.


The Dixon Museum Store is full of jewelry in all different styles and price ranges.  These are a few of my favorite pieces.  With so many styles, the jewelry collection in the store could really fulfill your gift needs for any of the women on your list, but these I picked out for my fashionable best friends.  The ring is by Anne-Marie Chagnon, an internationally renowned jewelry artist who has created jewelry for Cirque du Soleil.  Many of her pieces are available at the Dixon, and more are on the way.  This ring is $64.

The Zenzii earrings are a fun, trendy gift at a great price.  They are only $15 and come in many different styles and colors.

The purple earrings are by Ayala Bar.  She is based out of Isreal, and her designs blend natural elements and glass with assorted metals and fabrics.  There is a huge selection of her pieces at the Dixon and they are all amazing.  This pair of earrings is $102.

Hostess gifts are always a necessity this time of year, and there are a lot of good options in the Museum Store.


First up are LilyO's French Tea Towels by artist Tom Vieth.  He is an American artist living in France, and he paints French scenes that have been printed onto these tea towels, as well as scarves. The tea towels are $16 each.

Next are Dixon exhibition catalogs.  These make great coffee table books for family, friends and your favorite hostess.  They range in price from $5 to $40.


We also have a good selection of holiday ornaments that are good for ornament exchanges and little "happy" gifts to give to hostesses, friends and neighbors.

And for all those left on your list that really have you stumped, we have gift certificates and gift memberships available in the store.  Gift memberships are my personal favorite.  I got them for my parents and my in-laws last year and they were a hit.  It really is the gift that keeps on giving.

For all of you parents of young children, the Dixon Education Department is having a "Drop and Shop" this Saturday from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.  You can drop your children off at the Dixon for some fun activities while you go get some holiday shopping done. It's free and for ages 5 and older. More information here.

Happy holiday shopping!
