During your holiday in Kentucky you should make sure to find the perfect gift for all your family and friends. Nothing says Kentucky better than a bottle of bourbon, or maybe you’re looking for a unique work of art or a tasty treat. 

Kentucky Bourbon & Bourbon Balls

Whether you shop in the big cities or visit one of our unique small towns, there is something special for everyone....

Did Someone Say Bourbon?

Share a taste of Kentucky’s signature spirit! Pick up a bottle of your favourite bourbon from a local distillery after doing the tours and tasting them first yourself of course! You can even put a gift set together with a bottle of bourbon cream from Buffalo Trace Distillery or Boone Co. Distilling Co and a pack of root beer or hot chocolate – both are tasty combos! Also buy some bourbon balls (chocolate and bourbon in equal yummy goodness!).

Outlet Shopping

The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass is the largest Outlet Shopping centre in the state of Kentucky and the newest shopping destination. Save 25-60% in 90 well-known designer outlets including, Coach, Banana Republic, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH, Nike, North Face, Under Armour & Vera Bradley.

Kentucky’s Beautiful Horse Country

A horse may not fit in your gifting budget or your suitcase, but we’ve got a few ideas that will! Visit the Kentucky Horse Park, Kentucky Derby Museum for Derby fans, Churchill Downs and Keeneland! Or arrange a tour with the Horse Country organisation.

Local Shops with Unique Artisan Finds

Check out one of Kentucky’s artisan communities – from well known favourites such as Paducah and Berea, to smaller local favourites like Pikeville and Georgetown. Local shops are the ideal place for that gift – Artizan Made in Paducah and the Kentucky Artisan Centre in Berea both offer handmade works of art from Kentucky artists and crafters.

Learn About the Sounds of Kentucky

Did you know that Kentucky has many famous musicians? There are always great gift ideas and holiday memorabilia at any of the music museums, like the US23 Country Music Highway Museum, the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame or the Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame and Museum. A truly unique musical gift would be a handcrafted Appalachian dulcimer – the official state musical instrument.
