The Season of Gifting

Last week we shared with you the news of our first ever Holiday Pop-Up that we are hosting. While we pop-up at many places throughout the holiday season, we thought it would be fun to try it the other way and have some other local stores, artists, and businesses pop-up inside The Shoe Hive. But we are getting in on the gift action as well!

In order to help everyone get ready, we have stocked our shelves with gifts for all different ages and all different prices. I love making buying trips to the gift show and part of the fun is finding things that just make you smile. That is basically how I pick what will be on our shelves during the holidays. I walked by the Lip Licker display at I stopped dead in my tracks, pivoted and could not take the grin off my face. It was like my childhood had been given back to me. I mean, if a S’well bottle with Elsa or Anna doesn’t make a little girl smile this time of year, what will?

So, if you just need a little something or if you are looking for that gift that is going to wow someone, we have you covered.

Stop by Thursday and all gifts and accessories are 20 percent off, and we will wrap it up in special gift wrap just for the holidays. Keep your eyes out for our expanded gift guides in our Shoe Hive emails. We have plenty of options.



  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
