Gift buying is a challenging chore during the holiday season. However, Lake Placid’s shopping opportunities make it fun and easy. Lake Placid has gift shops for every need, whether you’re seeking locally produced chocolate, keepsakes to remember your Lake Placid visit, or something to mark a particular occasion. 

You can spend an entire day shopping in Lake Placid’s gift shops. However, if you’re on a time crunch, Whiteface Lodge has you covered. Not only do we offer comfortable accommodations in the Adirondacks, but we’re happy to extend our local expertise to eager travelers. Here are some of the gift shops you might want to visit while holiday shopping in Lake Placid.

Irish Treasures

Visit Irish Treasures and get your hands on valuable jewelry, housewares, clothing, and much more handcrafted by Irish people. This is the perfect shop to buy a meaningful gift from someone with Irish heritage. Buying a present from this gift shop might come with an intense feeling of belongingness to a new culture or your own culture if you happen to be Irish too. 

Adirondack Chocolate

For the sweet tooth in your life, head to Adirondack Chocolate. The Adirondack Chocolate artists have created small-batch cocoa masterpieces for over forty years. You might even be able to see the chocolatiers in action if you visit their chocolate factory in Wilmington. When you visit their establishments in downtown Lake Placid and Wilmington, you’ll think you’ve won the lottery when you see the selection of cordials, truffles, turtles, fudge, nonpareils, and hand-dipped pretzels, to mention just a few.

Everyone could use some new home or business decor, and the best place to go for decorations of all kinds is in Adirondack Decorative Arts & Crafts. This store features souvenirs, crafts, lanterns, glassware, Adirondack literature and posters, furniture, decorative accents, and so much more. With the store’s wide variety of offerings, there’s something for everyone.
