Holiday Ideas You'll Both Love 

Love isn’t defined by material things, but when you do have the occasion to spoil someone special, how about a holiday shopping trip to Hershey and Harrisburg to find a unique gift that fits their personality instead of a “one size fits all” box and bow? Browse our small shops and galleries to find that special something for that special someone.


Unique Shopping

Get artsy with handmade jewelry, clothing and more at the Millworks Art Gallery. Be cultural with tickets to holiday concerts and shows or admission passes to museums and art galleries. Shop small in a big way at Midtown Scholar Bookstore, one of the largest independent book stores on the east coast. Little ones on your list? Toys on the Square has an incredible collection of both classic games and play sets as well as the latest toy trends.

When the “practical” gift truly is the “perfect” gift, wrap up the latest styles from your favorite brand names at The Tanger Outlets at Hershey and area malls. Remember, tax-free shopping for clothing in PA!


Sweet Treats

Treat everyone on your “nice list” to treats from Hershey's Chocolate World Attraction. You'll find flavors that won't show up in the box stores plus clothing and collectibles to reflect their “taste” in sweets. Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a giant Kiss!

All that holiday shopping made you hungry. Treat yourselves to romantic holiday dining and authentic cuisine, or stop in a cozy café to be in and out in enough time to get right back to the sights and shopping. Little Amps Coffee Roasters' spot on State Street has the perfect view of the PA State Capitol and its holiday tree and lights.

Relaxing At The End Of The Day

All that eating made you thirsty. Stroll Downtown Harrisburg to enjoy a seasonal cocktail. Warm up in the tasting rooms of the region’s wineries and breweries. Wine and growlers (keep it cold!) make great holiday gifts.

All that sipping made you sleepy. Make a gift out of the trip itself and spend a holiday weekend in Hershey and Harrisburg. Spend the night at the luxurious Hotel Hershey. Before heading home, relax with a Chocolate Spa treatment. Pick up a spa gift card as a gift or as a treat to yourselves to come back and indulge all over again.
