If you have a lot of love for DC, or know someone who does, show it! From clothes to jewelry to stuff for your home or baby, the possibilities are endless. Here are just a few local and online options that I love as gifts for the DC fans in my life.
Hill’s Kitchen, owned by a DC native, has plenty of District pride. Glass ware, kitchen towels, coasters, platters, cookie cutters, cutting boards and much more. You can also get goods for friends who are fans of other states – Hill’s Kitchen carries a line of kitchen towels for each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia.
Dawn Price Baby has onesies and kid-sized t-shirts that let your little one show his or her DC pride.
Cherry Blossom Creative is a local design shop that has, among many great posters, DC neighborhood posters. So this is perfect for your Hill friends, or friends who live in the other corners of our awesome city. You can buy posters online or stop by their stand at Eastern Market on the weekends.
Do you know someone who loves DC history? THIH’s Robert Pohl‘s books — Capitol Hill Scandals, and DC Urban Legends — can both be bought at our local book stores. And don’t forget THIH’s Tim Krepp‘s books, Capitol Hill Haunts and & Ghosts of Georgetown. Robert also recommends: Garrett Peck‘s Prohibition in Washington and Capital Beer; and Canden Schwantes Wicked Georgetown and Wild Women. All can be found on The History Press.
I have always loved this pillow from Uncommon Goods. The Smithsonian carries a line of kitchen towels with the same design if you’d rather shop locally.
These state necklaces are available in all states, and the District of Columbia. I love how many people struggle to recognize the shape of DC when I wear this around town. You can get it in silver or gold here.

Your cat or dog can show DC pride too, with these tags from Aged Gifts.
This typography map is another one of my favorites. You can get it from Axis Maps, which carries similar prints for other major cities.
