Holiday Gift Inspiration from the Shops on the Plaza

Posted on 28th November, 2017

This season, La Quinta Resort & Club’s own Shops on the Plaza is where holiday gift-giving inspiration begins with a curated selection of unique fashions for women and men, fine accessories, desert curios, home accents, children’s toys, and much more.

If fashion-forward women’s resort wear and accessories are on your list, visit Citrus, Audrey’s, and Greta’s to find the perfect look from top designers Trina Turk, Lily Pulitzer, and Lululemon just to name a few.  In addition, The Bungalow Shop and Polo Ralph Lauren, both specializing in designer styles – with an eye toward gentlemen – are the ideal for upscale, today-traditional apparel.


In The Marketplace Gift Shop, tasteful home accents for appreciating year round and at the holidays, including limited-edition ornaments, crafts by local artisans, and even original acrylic paintings of our iconic resort by our artist in residence are sure to evoke fond memories of past desert visits and those visits yet to come.  And in the spirit of true personal relaxation choose from various creative blends of organic ingredients for bath teas, essential oils, candles, and aromatics; and from our retail boutique of exclusive spa products, including selections from the Skinceuticals and Zents lines.

To the delight of all ages, Lollipops, our children’s toys and sweet shop, welcomes you to find the softest, most creative, fun – and even delicious – treats for toddlers to age twelve, with an occasional coloring book for “big kids” to express themselves, too!

With such a bounty of boutiques and shops, ideas, and notions it can be fun to share the experience of the Shops on the Plaza.  A retail gift card is perfect for that special someone who loves to explore and discover on her own.

And while we wrap your gifts from the Shops on the Plaza – a complimentary service that includes free local delivery, of course! – take in the view of the holiday decorations from the Top of the Plaza and enjoy a festive cocktail, including the new classic “The George Bailey” — a tip of our hat to Frank Capra’s holiday classic It’s A Wonderful Life and all that it means to La Quinta Resort.

From holiday stay to getaway to hideaway, La Quinta Resort & Club offers all that you could possibly wish for from a desert destination.  And the timeless tradition of caring for our guests is our gift to you.

Happy Holidays and a Joyous New Year!
