Saint Helena is known for being in the heart of wine country and therefore one of the most popular items which travelers bring home to those friends and family members who were not able to join them on their Saint Helena trip is a bottle of wine.  These bottles are most frequently bought at the local wineries during wine tasting tours.  However, there are also numerous little shops throughout Saint Helena which cater to this specialty shopping interest.

For those visitors who want to buy their wine from a more well-known location, St. Helena is home to a branch of Dean & Deluca ( http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction... ).  In addition to picking up bottles of local wine from this famous store, visitors can pick up local cheeses and produce to either enjoy themselves or to use for gift baskets to take home with them.  The Woodhouse Chocolate Factory is a good stop for getting a little something extra to throw in those baskets.

Heaven and Earth is a great beauty store and salon.  They have wonderful product that is hard to find anywhere else like Bumble and Bumble, Murad and Bare Minerals.  All wonderful.

St. Helena is a shoppers heaven.  Check out the websites below for more shopping info.
