Washington DC Christmas Gifts
DC at Christmas – Bright lights Big City
Washington lights up in December when the city turns on its Christmas lights and puts on a show for everyone.
The focus of it all is the National Christmas Tree found near the White House. While not as big as that found in front of the US Capitol, it’s a touch more special, because around it you’ll find a tree for each state or territory.
DC feels like a capital, and it offers up so many opportunities that you’ll never be short of inspiration when it comes to buying Washington focused Christmas gifts.
A photography tour is an ideal way to guarantee a friend or relative gets to capture all the best images of the city – thanks to the skills of a professional photographer, their next images will need framing, not cropping.
Food fans could be filling up on festive fare thanks to DC’s food cruises, and with wine tasting tours also on the menu it could be a very merry Christmas indeed!
There’s no chance of a relative opening a Christmas gift and looking unexcited; scuba sessions and indoor climbing should get pulses racing, while for the out and out adventure fan, there’s tandem skydiving.
Christmas is always a time for indulgence, for sharing, and for a little romance. So why not treat someone to a food cruise? This way you’ll both get to indulge in excellent food as you float through the capital.
Part of the fun of Christmas is the anticipation, yet when the Christmas lights go on everyone knows that Christmas is coming and the season of goodwill is well and truly upon us.
Don’t worry if you don’t make the lighting ceremony in DC, there’s always the moment you switch on your lights at home, setting the scene for another happy, family Christmas.
