Holiday Gift Guide 2020

Shop local this holiday season by visiting the museum for unique gifts – like hand turned wooden bowls and Wake Forest-themed t-shirts, ornaments, and books. We’ve put together a gift guide to showcase some of our favorite items in the museum store. Happy shopping!

These wooden bowls are hand turned by Wake Forest resident Bob Ford. Some of our favorites are the magnolias, pecans, cedars, and orange bowls. Bowls crafted from trees on Southeastern’s campus (Wake Forest’s original campus) are labeled. Bowls and plates range in price from $15 to $100.

"Wake Forest: Where the College used to be" printed on grey t-shirt.

“Wake Forest: Where the college used to be.” We say that a lot, especially when we’re working with Wake Forest University students in Winston-Salem. This t-shirt ($20) was designed by House of Swank in Raleigh and is a must have for all Wake Foresters.
