The holiday season has officially arrived in Greater Wilmington and we’re shouting out a few uniquely perfect gift ideas for those hard to shop family members. Whether it’s the  aunt who loves  finer things or the cousin who has everything... these gifts are sure to impress!  

1. Give a Time Honored Tradition 

This year, Le Cavalier at the Green Room is bringing back a long-standing tradition of the historic hotel it resides in -  afternoon tea! On Friday afternoons through the holiday season (November 26 - December 17) enjoy custom tea blends with inspired sandwich pairings, pastries and more. Make your reservation here- https://www.lecavalierde.com/event/friday-afternoon-tea-1/  

If you can’t make a Friday tea time or, if you’re looking to put something under the tree this Christmas season, look to Centreville Café. They provide an afternoon tea experience year-round! Just make sure to reserve your spot a minimum of 48 hours in advance. Learn more here - https://centrevillecafe.org/      

2. Grab a Unique Item at a Local Museum Shop 

Visit Greater Wilmington’s local museum shops during the holiday season for gifts you can’t find anywhere else. The magic of the season comes alive in unique shops  with incredible one-of-a-kind items like art, jewelry, Delaware specific items and more.  

3. The Year-Round Gift  

Would you rather give a gift that lasts a day or an entire year? This holiday season give your family the gift of a membership to one of Wilmington’s local attractions. An annual membership allows for visits throughout the year to explore ever-changing exhibitions and nature’s seasonal colors. Plus, additional benefits such as special guest rates, early access to special event tickets, members-only events and much more. A museum or garden membership is the gift that gives all year long.  

Whatever you gift, wherever you go, Wilmington and the Brandywine Valley has something for everyone to enjoy. Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season!
