Indianapolis Gift Shops

A traveling parent or loving spouse knows that they can’t come home from a trip empty handed. Here are a few suggestions for stores and Indy-only gifts that are sure to make a warm welcome home.


If you’re looking for an Indianapolis T-shirt, coffee mug, photo book, or postcard, the Visitor Center is for you.  It’s also a great place to seek out information on what to see and do during your stay.

 

MASS AVE BOUTIQUES

When a local wants a gift, they turn to Kristin Kohn and her team at Silver in the City. What started as a showcase for locally made silver jewelry has grown in a eclectic collection of gifts and home decor. Browse a collection of Indy-pride t-shirts (317), coffee table books (The Hoosier Mama Book of Pie), stationery (Grumpy Cat notecards), unique home décor items (garden gnome salt and pepper shakers) and some items that defy categorization (zombie cribbage set).


You can endlessly wander aisles full of predictable toys at a big-box store or you can discover a new world of offerings for your favorite little one at Mass Ave Toys.  From cutting-edge educational toys to retro games (Classic Sorry!), you’ll have as much fun shopping as your kids will have receiving their gift. The staff understands how hard making a decision can be and are eager to help you match a unique toy with your unique child.


While this shop may be located on Mass Ave, you won’t find any mass production on the shelves of this local boutique. Homespun specializes in handmade goods from 200 artists across the US and Canada. You’ll find jewelry, housewares, food, and apparel adorning the shop – much of it with Indiana(polis) ties.

 

MUSEUM SHOPS

Indianapolis Museum of Art Store

IMA Gift Shop

As if the grounds and galleries weren’t enough, the Art Store is a worthy destination unto itself. Tucked inside this free museum is an incredible collection of museum reproductions (mini LOVE sculptures are a favorite), books, handmade jewelry, and items for the creative kid in your life. You can also pick up everyday objects by European and American designers.


For a definitive Indiana gift, you can’t go wrong perusing the two-story shop inside the Indiana State Museum at White River State Park. Want a Monument Circle Christmas ornament? Check. How about a guide to the 92 County Walk that adorns the outside of the museum? Check. A Buesching mastodon tusk? Check. If you want to take a piece of Indiana home, this is the place for you.

FOOD FAVORITES

Just Pop In! Popcorn

Just Pop In!

When twin sisters Mandy and Carly were ready to start a business, they pulled inspiration from childhood days popping popcorn on the stove with their grandfather. Today, Just Pop In! is a signature Indy snack, and their popcorn can be found at events, restaurants, hotels, and their storefronts in Broad Ripple and in the Indianapolis International Airport. For local flavors, go with the Sun King Dark Chocolate Osiris or the Smoking Goose Carmel, Bacon + Cheddar.


Best Chocolate in Town

Best Chocolate In Town

Since 1998, Elizabeth Garber and her team of chocolatiers have been crafting premium quality chocolates on the north end of Mass Ave. The company has always been community minded, and you’ll find their amazing truffles on the menu at foodie favorite R Bistro and The Jazz Kitchen in Broad Ripple. With unique flavors like Port Win & Fig and Ginger Wasabi alongside traditional flavors like Amaretto and Tiramisu, you’re sure to find a fit for your chocolate cravings.


St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail Sauce

St. Elmo Shrimp Cocktail Sauce

It took years to figure out how to effectively bottle the legendary sauce that is an Indianapolis rite of passage, but they finally mastered it. Going to St. Elmo and ordering a shrimp cocktail for unassuming visitors is a tradition for locals, and now you can take some home to light up the taste buds of your friends and relatives. You can promise that their sinuses will be cleared and they just may shed a tear (of joy).

 

SPORTS

Colts Pro Shop

Colts Pro Shop

Even when there aren’t 70,000 roaring fans in Lucas Oil Stadium, you can still come by the Colts Pro Shop in the northeast corner of the stadium (there is another location in Circe Centre mall) to get Colts apparel for your football fan. From t-shirts and hats to authentic jerseys, if you bleed blue, this is the place for you.


Pacers Home Court II

Pacers Home Court

Upon entering the Pacers Home Court, you’ll first notice the planet-sized basketball with the beloved mascot Boomer doing a handstand on top.  Beneath that is a bounty of gear for blue-and-gold fans. Modern gear and retro throwbacks will make sure you wear your Pacers pride in style. You’ll also find a range of collectibles, basketballs, and knick knacks to showcase your team loyalty.
