Fear not, however, North Conway is filled with great gift ideas this holiday season. Read on for some nice ideas for the teachers on your list and for hostess gifts too.

Every hostess would love one of the incredibly cool fork and spoon figurines found at the Naked Bohemian. Here you’ll find a wide variety of handmade wine caddies, yard ornaments and more.

Remember, all of these come tax-free so what you see on the price tag is what you pay!

Here are this week’s “finest kind finds”…

 
* Skiers and Boarders: Great deals on 2012 and 2013 skis and boards at Joe Jones’ Sun & Ski Sports in North Conway; look for recreational Nordic skis too. For those seeking Nordic/Telemark skis, Eastern Mountain Sports at Settlers’ Crossing also offers the region’s largest collection of equipment for back country terrain.

Contest Winners

The winning photo! Lori and Barbara with Santa.
Congratulations to Lori & Barbara for submitting 

the best photo depicting the fun of shopping 

Village to Village!

Lori and Barbara note: “We have a great time in North Conway, enjoying the scenery, village shops, restaurants and, of course, the bargain shopping… You’ll notice in the photos the special shirts we made for this year’s event… the moose on the shirt says “Love,” and a reference to our time in North Conway.

We have what we call “The Bank of Moose.” We have a savings/checking account into which we each deposit a set monthly payment. This money covers our hotel, meals and gas for our trip each year. Our November “payment” has already been made toward next year’s trip.”

Lori and Barbara’s photo with Santa received the most likes on the  Mt. Washington Valley Chamber’s Facebook page in our  Shopping photo album, and is the winner of our Shopping Photo Contest. Lori and Barbara have won a shopping getaway complete with overnight accommodations and gift certificates to North Conway Village stores and restaurants! Congratulations, Lori and Barbara.

A big shout out also goes to “The Bag Ladies” who submitted a number of photos and garnered several hundred likes for their photos. Great job to all eleven of the “Bag Ladies” – we hope you’ll return again!

Winner of the #VillagetoVillage hashtag campaign:
Deb W. from Falmouth, MA.

Deb will be awarded an overnight stay at Colonial Motel and a collection of gift certificates and gift cards for North Conway shopping and dining. Congratulations, Deb!

Here’s the story that Deb shared: “What started as a family getaway has morphed into a much loved Ladies Weekend. Three friends have grown to eleven and one day into four. We sport matching jackets custom embroidered with “Bag Ladies” and earn merit badges for shopping attendance and achievements. There is an initiation of new members, DJ dance party with line dance instruction, practical jokes, Yankee swap, competitions and lots and lots of laughs. The shopping spree started it all but the friends and the fun keep it going year after year.”

Problem Solved

Your shopping problems, solved!
Have a question about where to locate a hard-to-find item, or find the perfect gift for your next door neighbor? We’re here to help! Send your questions via email to PR@mtwashingtonvalley.org
Here are solutions to several shopping dilemmas we’ve uncovered, all easily solved in the stores throughout North Conway.
Q: I like to give locally made or Made in the USA gifts at the holidays. Where could I find things that were locally made?

A: There are a number of options to find locally made gifts in or near North Conway Village. A few that come to mind immediately are the chocolate gifts made on premise at the Bavarian Chocolate Haus in North Conway. Their truffles are especially popular at holiday time. Zeb’s General Store in North Conway Village is known to have the largest collection of New England-made specialty foods in the country, so you can’t go wrong there. In fact, everything at Zeb’s is made in New England. The White Mountain Cupcakery, with locations in Settler’s Green and North Conway Village, makes delicious cupcakes.Visit the Skinny Towel Company in the pink Handcrafters Barn, near North Conway Village or the Funky Bubble in North Conway Village offering locally made Kearsarge Mountain Goats Milk soaps and sundries. Fields of Ambrosia in Norcross Circle also offers made-on-premise soaps and fragrances and right next door, Jewelry by Timothy W. Psaledakis & Friends, specializes in custom-made-to-order jewelery. Frontside Grind in North Conway Village will create a customized roasted coffee too (10 lb. minimum) and the League of NH Craftsmen offers art pieces, jewelry, pottery and gifts for the whole family, made in NH. Essence of Art on Kearsarge Street offers a wide range of affordable gift ideas, all made on premise by disabled adults. There are so many places! This is just a few ideas.

Q: We’re expecting a heavy snow winter.  I’m looking for gift ideas to keep the kids busy on snow days.
A: You have a number of options. Visit the Toys R Us Outlet in Settlers’ Green, the toy section at Zeb’s General Store or Toy Chest in North Conway for some popular toys. However, here’s an idea for something new and different: The Brookstone Outlet in Settlers’ Green has a product called Sänd. It’s 95-percent fine quality sand and 2-percent polymer, so it sticks together and doesn’t end up all over the table or play surface. You can mold it and it feels really cool to the touch. It’s a nice departure from Play Doh, and easier to clean up. A nice size package is $19.99.

Holiday Tree Festival at Settlers’ Green

Get them something for the kitchen! Food is always a great gift during the holidays. It comes in all sizes, fits all styles and you can never get enough of it. Foodies love kitchen gadgets and Mt.

Start at the Handcrafters Pink Barn and cottage where you’ll find a wide variety of specialty foods from kitchens throughout New England. Here you may also stumble upon handmade towels, pot holders and more for the kitchen.

Sawyer River Knife and Trading Co. in Norcross Circle is the perfect spot for kitchen-krazy fun! There’s a full line of quality cutlery and kitchen knives in the store, plus tons of fabulous kitchen gadgets and cookware.  We loved the colorful freezer “crushed” cups, shaped to fit in the hand perfectly. There’s just so much to choose from in here, it’s a virtual foodie find!

If you’ll be seeing your foodie friend soon, there are multiple options for edible gifts in Settlers’ Green and North Conway Village.

Problem Solved

Your shopping problems, solved! 
Have a question about where to locate a hard-to-find item, or find the perfect gift for your next door neighbor? We’re here to help! Send your questions via email to PR@mtwashingtonvalley.org.
Here are solutions to several shopping dilemmas we’ve uncovered, all easily solved in the stores throughout North Conway.

 

Q: Our boss loves his motorcycle and rides it to work every day but struggles with bringing his brief case too. Any ideas for a boss gift?

A: The Travelpro Outlet in Settlers’ Green has the solution to this quandary and the perfect gift. All of their computer cases have a slot in the back that allows travelers to slip the case over the pull-out handle on a rolling bag. The same slot has been known to work well on some backrests of motorcycles solving the problem of bringing the computer when traveling on the bike!

Q: My 8-year-old son loves everything about meteorology. It’s tough to find things in toy stores for him. Got any suggestions?

A: Yes! We have the perfect idea for you! Visit the Mount Washington Observatory Weather Discovery Center in North Conway Village and don’t miss the gift shop there. You’ll find everything from weather stations, to books to one-of-a-kind weather gifts. You can even purchase some of their unbelievable photos shot at the summit from their photo gallery on smugmug. Also, be sure to take your son there. It’s the only museum in the country totally dedicated to weather, right in the heart of North Conway Village!

Grab a shopping buddy, hit North Conway’s outlets, shops and independently-owned stores and start crossing gifts off your holiday list! Read on to get some great gift ideas for the kids this holiday season, where the “finds” are in the Valley and all about how to win a gift certificate for your shopping getaway.

What’s Hot this Holiday Season for the Kids

Kids are always so much fun to shop for during the holidays. Full of wonder, the holidays are all about bringing smiles to the faces of the younger set.

From infant to “tweenager,” North Conway is packed with ideas for toys, apparel and goodies that the kids will love.

Here are a few great ideas for places to go for holiday gifts for kids:

You won’t be able to resist the Piggy Paint for your kids this holiday at The Funky Bubble. It’s about as natural as mud, but much more colorful! It’s also a non-toxic, odorless and eco-friendly way to paint just about everything.

The gift shop at the Weather Discovery Center offers some great one-of-a-kind gifts and books for your budding meteorologists.

Looking for a new lunchbox for your little one? The Chef’s Market of North Conway has the most adorable collection of metal lunch boxes for the kiddos on your list!

 

Toys R Us Express, in Settlers’ Green, is filled with all the Legos, dress up, dolls, trucks, games and hot holiday toys for the kids. This is a great spot for stocking stuffers and “under $5” gifts too.

It’s easy to find gifts for the kids in North Conway! Click here to find out where you can find chocolate treats made in the shape of their favorite sport, where to find warm boots and glittery party shoes, and much more.

Finest Kind “Finds”

We’ve scoured the stores in North Conway for the best treasures, special offers and finest finds so we can share them with you. Some are reminders on where to find the best deals, others are very special discoveries or novelties for holiday shoppers.
 

Remember, all of these come tax-free so what you see on the price tag is what you pay!

Here are this week’s “finest kind finds”…

Royal Doulton/ Wedgewood offers a clearance section starting at 40% off (as the holidays near, the sales here get even better!). No seconds, just first quality collectables, dinnerware and glassworks.
* Skiers and Boarders, check out the Clearance Loft at Joe Jones’ Sun & Ski Sports in North Conway for some great apparel. You’ll also find nice sales at Olympia Sports, also in the Village, and Bob & Terry’s Sports Outlet, on Route 16 between the Village and the outlets.

Problem Solved

Your shopping problems, solved! 
Have a question about where to locate a hard-to-find item, or find the perfect gift for your next door neighbor? We’re here to help! Send your questions via email to PR@mtwashingtonvalley.org.
Here are solutions to several shopping dilemmas we’ve uncovered, all easily solved in the stores throughout North Conway.
Q: My mother and father are walkers, but I worry about them falling in the winter when there’s snow on the ground.

 
A: Visit the Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) store at Settlers’ Crossing. Their Microspikes traction systems are perfect for winer! They are slip-on traction that easily fits over shoes or boots and offers plenty of traction for the winer. They are very popular and EMS carries a number of different styles.

Q: One sister is rather large and the other is rather small. Any ideas where I might find sweaters or dresses for them this holiday season?

A: We have two ideas. Lane Bryant at Settlers’ Green stocks apparel and lingerie sizes 14 to 28 (and bras up to 48DDD). The store is filled with great holiday and winter apparel. Dress Barn, also in Settlers’ Green, offers not only a petite section but also a Misses section with selections up to size 24.
Q: I’m looking for the perfect gag gift for my friend. She’s turning 50 this year.
 
A: We’ve got it! Visit Zeb’s General Store in North Conway Village for a Portable Hot Flash Fan. It fits in a purse, it really does work, and it’ll get a smile. There’s a nice collection of “hot flash” signs and gifts there too. Finally, if she’s a TV fan, we loved the Big Bang Theory Sheldon bobble head doll or the Duck Dynasty Year of Beards calendar at BAM! in Settlers’ Crossing.

Won’t You Shop and Stay a Little Longer?

With so much to see and do in the Mt. Washington Valley, why not stay a little longer? Along with tax-free shopping, hike the mountains; attend events and enjoy the holiday festivities; dine at unique restaurants and then stay the night and do it all the next day too!
