Best Stationery + Gift Stores in DC, MD, + VA
Below you’ll find a list of the cutest stationery, home goods, and gift stores in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area (better known as the DMV). I stuck to this area because MD and VA are huge and it would be impossible to cover both states completely.
I’ve only listed small boutiques, and I’ve been to each one unless otherwise noted. I believe it’s important to support small businesses and I also love giving unique gifts and picking up unusual pieces for my home.
