Knick-knacks & Home Décor
Every home has at least a few knick-knacks (if not 20) and decorations throughout, and Pigeon Forge is chock full of little keepsakes, trinkets, thingamajigs, and general home décor. Mom obsessed with unique Christmas ornaments, stockings, and wreaths? Mosey over to The Incredible Christmas Place, filled to the brim with everything Christmas…it’s pretty Incredible. Aunt keeps adding kittens to the family? Bring her more of what she loves with the purr-fect gift from the Smoky Mountain Cat House.
And if you’d prefer to buy everyone’s gifts at the same place, venture around The Island that features 40+ stores with everything from stylish fashion and pop culture merch to oil paintings and Paula Deen kitchenware. Opt for the Three Bears General Store — the largest souvenir store in town — which harbors holiday decorations, jewelry, and a Make-UR-Bear Factory. Or grab a few things from the Moon Pie General Store and the Original Book Warehouse, where you’ll find nostalgic pieces, soft pillows, wood blocks with cute sayings, mini tractors, frames, and bestselling books.
