Looking for a gift that will provide the best memories for the holiday season? Why not give an experience gift instead of buying more stuff? Our Fairfax City Elf Hunt – Experience Gift Guide celebrates some of the best ways to experience the city.
There’s nothing quite like the cinema and Fairfax City’s Cinema Arts Theatre at 9650 Main Street isn’t one to miss. With a focus on first run indie and foreign films (blockbusters run from time to time), it’s the perfect gift of experience for the cinema lover in your life.
Have a gift recipient who’s adorned with amazingly expressive art and loves to color outside the lines? Give them a gift from Dixer Worldwide Tattoo at 10560 Main Street, #308. Emmanuel Chavez Galicia is the professional tattoo and multimedia artist behind, “Dixer”. With a gift from Dixer, their next piece will be artwork tailored to their individual style that compliments their current ink.
Don’t give a typical fragrance gift set this year. Instead, show the fragrance connoisseur in your life a more personal gift with a custom olfactory scent created by you at DIY Scent Studio, 4007 University Drive. DIY Scent Studio is a perfumery located in the heart of Old Town Fairfax that will help you explore the unique art form of creating your own perfume. With over 80 smells on the perfumery organ, there’s no limit to what you can create!
Give the gift of art! At Paint Your Own Pottery, you’ll create memories and personalized works of art at their studio located at 10417 Main Street. With hundreds of pieces and glazes to choose from, nothing could be easier and your creativity can be endless. It’s so easy and fun, you’ll want to paint more than just one!
Ace is definitely the place in Fairfax City! As the local hardware store serving Fairfax City, Twins Ace Hardware at 10301B Main Street has everything for any type of project but also friendly and knowledgeable staff making it the place for those on your list that are makers or just like tinkering. There’s also a number of community events and demos throughout the year. Be sure to shop their holiday grill specials through Christmas Eve.
