The holiday season is upon us once again with Thanksgiving next week and then only 29 days till Christmas! The Ava Gardner Museum Gift Shop has great, unique gifts for the classic film buffs and Ava fans in your life. While this year has been strange and challenging, the joy of gift giving remains.
Buying from our gift shop also supports our mission to preserve our collection of priceless artifacts relating to Ava's career and private life, and to share Ava's story through exhibits, physical and virtual. Find some highlights of our gift shop below and browse the full shop online or in store at the Ava Gardner Museum. Stay tuned as some of the items seen below will be added and restocked soon!
For Classic Film Fans:
For film fans of all ages, a classic film on DVD or Blu-Ray is a perfect gift. We have a variety of films including Ava's acclaimed performances in Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, Show Boat, and Mogambo.
Books about Ava's life and her Hollywood career make great gifts for the bookworms in your life.
And for budding Ava fans, an Ava Gardner Museum coloring book or stuffed corgi, Ava's favorite dog, will ignite their love of classic films.
For Ava's Biggest Fans
Outfit the biggest fans in your life with Ava gear they can wear proudly. Apparel, tote bags, face masks, and more showcase their love of Ava and classic films.
A Taste of Home
Our gift shop sells classic candies and Gardner Family recipes. Share a taste of Ava's home state with these unique gifts.
For those who deserve more than a lump of coal, fill their stockings with Ava swag. Bookmarks, notecards, magnets, coffee mugs, and more all make great stocking stuffers.
Ava Advocate Program - The Gift that Keeps Giving
For the biggest Ava film fans in your life, consider gifting membership in the Ava Advocate Program. Membership includes free admission to the museum for a year, a 15% discount in the gift shop, and the 2021 Ava Calendar, featuring images of Ava from Pandora and the Flying Dutchman, in honor of our recent exhibit about the film.
Or consider honoring the film fan in your life by making a donation in their name to the Ava Gardner Museum.
It wouldn't be a 2020 gift guide if it didn't include some virtual products, would it? Gift a classic film fan (or yourself) with admission to our virtual exhibit about Ava's role in Pandora and the Flying Dutchman. Get a great view of the artifacts currently on display at the museum (plus a couple of extra features) from the comfort of your own home. A great gift for those who cannot visit the museum!
