Holiday Gift Show

  • 1:00 PM5:00 PM

Make your list. Check it twice. Get ready to get your gift on! Our annual must-shop Holiday Gift Show marks the beginning of the season and promises something for everyone on your list. An eclectic mix of 40 artisans and vendors makes this one-day event your one-stop shopping destination. Our curated collection of treasures is a diverse assortment of home décor, jewelry, candles, eats, toys, kids’ activities, apparel, handbags, men’s items, and holiday-themed ornaments and soaps, to name a few. Among the perennial favorites are Michigan’s own Cherry Republic, Hickory Tree Farm Apiaries, KNOWN Goods Co., Roeda Studio, and Beer City Dog Biscuits, along with Jellycat plushies and Simply Noelle apparel and accessories.

New this year are West Michigan’s own Heather Lane Pottery, a studio offering personalized ceramic ornaments; Foliage Effects, with unique horticulture aesthetics combining houseplants, antiques, and upcycled planters; and Peggy Bishop Cards, handcrafted creations that include greeting cards, gift tags, and bookmarks.

Also joining our festive roster are Spiral Light Candles, uniquely long-lasting and luxuriously scented tower candles that melt within, and one-of-a-kind Soruka handbags and wallets handmade from sustainable, upcycled leather. We’ve even added new holiday-inspired Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park goodies such as ornaments, puzzles, mugs, and coasters.

Get here early to get the best selection, as many gifts do sell out. Better yet, make a day of it! Refuel in the James & Shirley Balk Café after you shop, then explore our beautiful gardens, exhibition spaces, and sculpture park, or take a class. The Holiday Gift Show is free for members and included with admissions for others. And as a member, you’ll enjoy a 10% discount on your purchases.

We look forward to surprising—spoiling!—you.
