Christmas in Georgetown is a festive time where the streets are bustling with holiday shoppers and there’s a distinctive quality in the air.
With so many shops and boutiques, you can find gifts for everyone on your list this Christmas in Georgetown.
Don’t miss out on holiday specials. We love Sassanova’s (1641 Wisconsin Avenue) 12 Days of Shopping, where each day a new item will be featured for 30% off. From dresses and clothes to necklaces and scarves, this is a great place to start your gift-giving search.
Christmas in Georgetown is also very visually festive! While in Georgetown this holiday season don’t miss Georgetown Glow from December 12 until December 14, this is the first-ever Georgetown GLOW event. Georgetown GLOW is a weekend long event, celebrating the holiday season, art and the beauty of Georgetown. Public art displays by local, national and international artists will be on display throughout Georgetown . The featured works of art will be displayed along M Street, the Book Hill section on the 1600 block of Wisconsin Avenue, Washington Harbour, and in office building plazas south of M Street.
Don’t miss the third annual Holiday Window competition where local boutiques decorate their storefronts with holiday themed window displays. This is a fun opportunity to gather your family and explore the beautiful storefront window displays throughout Georgetown.
There isn’t a shortage of shopping options in Georgetown in fact it’s a go-to shopping destination for DC locals. For the accessory loving lady in your life, head to Charm (2910 M Street NW) for a wide range of jewelry and designer accessories (by hard-to-find designers); it almost guarantees your gift will stand out and be unique. For the dapper gentleman in your life head to Hugh & Crye (3212 O Street NW). Hugh & Crye specializes in upscale men’s clothing – the attentive service there pretty much ensures you’re in great hands. For the art lover in your life, we recommend a visit to the Claude Taylor Photography Gallery (1500 Wisconsin Avenue NW).
