Your Arch-Centric Holiday Gift Guide
The weather outside is frightful – and do you know what else is? The fact that December 25 is only 12 days away! That’s right, time’s running out for holiday shopping. If you’re stumped on gift ideas, we are here to help. Here are a few Arch-centric items that are sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face this season.
A Box Full of Treats
Our park partner Jefferson National Parks Association has put together three holiday boxes that include an array of themed gifts for many interests. For example, the Kid’s Collection box includes three Arch children’s books by local St. Louis authors, as well as a fun activity book, a plush squirrel stuffed animal, colorful photo frame, matching water bottle and a fun slap bracelet. Be sure to check out the Color Block Collection and the Starry Night Collection boxes too. Now available for purchase online or at The Arch Store, located in the Arch Visitor Center.
(Pro tip: Become a Partner of the Park and SAVE! JNPA members receive 15% off all orders.)
A Tram Memento
Now here’s a unique gift idea: Give a piece of the Arch’s tram system with a Cable Arch Memento, which is made from the tram cable used to transport visitors to the top of the Arch. The cable Arch comes two sizes: small and large. Now available for purchase online or at The Arch Store, located in the Arch Visitor Center. (Again, JNPA members receive 15% off all orders.)
An Over-”arch”-ing Experience
The Tram Ride to the Top of the Arch and the St. Louis Riverfront Cruise are two St. Louis traditions. Give the gift of an unforgettable experience at the Gateway Arch and the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch with a gift certificate that can be used towards Tram Ride to the Top and Documentary Movie tickets at the Arch, cruises aboard the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch, and for purchases from the Riverboats’ Gift Shop. To purchase a gift certificate, call 877-982-1410.
The Gift of Membership
Help protect and sustain the Gateway Arch for decades to come by giving the gift of membership to the Gateway Arch Park Foundation! Members receive many extra perks and benefits such as free Tram Rides to the Top of the Arch, complimentary downtown parking, discount on cruises at the Riverboats at the Gateway Arch, special event invitations and so much more.
Plus, now through the end of the year, all new memberships and membership renewal upgrades are being matched by the Gateway Arch Park Foundation’s board of trustees.
