The Gift That Keeps on Giving – Wishlists at The Hive and Shoe Hive!

Help us help you get what you want this year. Come fill out a Holiday Wishlist at The Hive and The Shoe Hive so you don’t have to dread what’s under that gift wrapping. The long and short of it – we are here to help!

We have all been there right? Our loved ones want so badly to get us something special but feel like they are shooting in the dark. We so badly are hoping for something very specific but are a little embarrassed to just come out and say it. Let us take the awkwardness out of it for you by filling out a wishlist at both of our stores.



Here is how it works:

  1. Come to The Hive and The Shoe Hive and ask for help filling out you wishlist.
  2. Walk around our stores finding the perfect items and fit of your dream gifts.
  3. Leave the contact information of you husband, partner, parents, and/or children – who ever needs a little guidance in shopping for you this year.
  4. We take care of the rest!

What is the rest you ask? Contacting your loved ones and gift wrapping! Let’s just say we make it easy on everyone.

For those whose husbands, fiancés, boyfriends, or brothers need a little extra encouragement (or incentive) to shop, we are hosting our 7th Annual Men’s Night on Wednesday, December 18th from 6pm – 9pm. They will be well taken care of as we offer beer, bourbon, brats, and cigars…not to mention free holiday gift wrapping. So, make sure you have your wishlists filled out before then so we can make sure to personally invite your person!



Still in need of some encouragement and inspiration? Keep reading to see what your favorite Hive and Shoe Hive employees have been given in past years…it’s ok to laugh with us and see what we are urging our loved ones to gift us instead this year!



  • The latest from Penelope
Truly a local girl, Penelope was born and raised in Alexandria, Virginia. Penelope graduated from James Madison University (GO DUKES!) with a degree in International Relations and is now getting her Masters in Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University. While she never expected to work retail, she has found a second home in her Hive and Shoe Hive family, and has discovered the shoe and clothing addiction she never thought she had. An avid traveler, if not working or going to classes, Penelope is surely on a plane to a country she has yet to see.

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.
