For Moms & Dads who love this region, many of our local shops offer Lake George and Adirondack themed gifts & items; and those who can not shop here locally, check out the online stores! For your convenience, this shopping guide is categorized into types of shopping items, as well as type of shopping venues. Whether you are looking for Antiques & decorative arts, candles, or jewelry for Mom – fishing supplies, sporting gear & books for Dad – or candy, music, Lake George photos or Adirondack prints for both… you will surely find the perfect gift! If your schedule does not allot time for gift searching, then perhaps you may want to give a gift certificate. Surprisingly, gift certificates can be a very unique gift option. They can be a way to introduce a fun, exciting, or fitting idea that Mom or Dad would never otherwise try. Because the Lake George Region boasts tremendous Outdoor Activities, Attractions, Dining, Lodging, & Professionals/Services, there are virtually unlimited gift certificated options to choose from.

Take them on a scenic drive, or go on a family picnic – there are so many beautiful picnic spots in the region. Perhaps Mom may wants to take family pictures at area scenic spots, go to a museum, or take a boat cruise on Lake George. Dad may prefer to walk a nature trail, go hiking up Prospect Mountain, take a charter fishing excursion on Lake George, play a game of tennis & golf, or try white water rafting on the Hudson River.
