For the rest of us, holiday shopping can be stressful. To ease the tension, Eliot on 4th has put together a list of some amazing retailers with equally stellar gifts to delight even the pickiest of your loved ones. Here are some ideas for presents:

For those with a sweet tooth:

Stroll down to Harper Macaw’s pop-up boutique at The District Wharf. This fine chocolatier offers artisanal chocolates like Bourbon Barrel Aged 75% Dark Chocolate, and a selection of Brazilian blended and single estate bars. Every chocolate purchase also aids in the company’s objective to help tropical reforestation. So, it’s a gift of deliciousness with a side of saving the rainforest.

For the literature lovers:

There is a literally a book for everyone. Politics and Prose is a place that can help you find one for everybody on your list. There’s a location at The Wharf you can walk to or if you happen to be near Friendship Heights, the flagship store would be worth a stop. At either location, you’re sure to find a gift that will add something substantial to the recipient’s life.

For the foodies:

There’s no shortage of amazing restaurants near Eliot on 4th. Consider a gift certificate to one of them. Think Bluejacket or City Winery for the wine and beer aficionados, Whaley’s or The Salt Line for seafood lovers, or Station 4 or Masala Art, less than a block away from Eliot on 4th.

For the artful character:

Being so close to all the Smithsonian Museums puts you in an ideal space to pop into any one of the gift shops and walk out with some cool, educational, ‘designy’, or artful presents for the holidays. You can even browse online by museum to narrow your options before you even leave the house.

Hopefully this gives you a jumpstart on your gift-giving odyssey this year. And maybe while you’re at it you can gift yourself a beautiful new apartment in SW DC at Eliot on 4th. Schedule your tour today to coincide with your upcoming shopping spree!
