Give a Unique N.C. Holiday Gift This Season

Looking for the perfect gift for the art or history buff in your life? Look no further than our historic sites and museums!

For history lovers, the gift shops at many of our history-related venues offer unique toys, books and other gifts spanning centuries of North Carolina history. From gift baskets, specialty foods at the N.C. Museum of History to model planes, trains and automobiles at the N.C. Transportation Museum, there’s truly something for everyone on your list. A wide range of books and posters from North Carolina Historical Publications are also marked down between 50 and 75 percent, now through Dec. 31.

For those more inclined toward art, the N.C. Museum of Art and SECCA offer a wide range of gifts from artisan-crafted jewelry and pottery to posters, prints, games and more. The N.C. Arts Council also offers guidebooks for exploring North Carolina’s rich heritage and gives you the chance to help projects come to life in your loved one’s name through its new power2give website. The Arts Council has also put together great suggestions for the book lover in your life here and here.

Tickets to a North Carolina Symphony concert or for admission to one of our historic sites make great stocking stuffers, while gift memberships to the any of our venues are something your loved ones can enjoy throughout the year.
