Besides photographs of your visit to the red rock formations around Sedona, we suggest you bring home a souvenir that’s tied to the place. For people who appreciate jewelry, there’s no better souvenir than a piece of turquoise-and-silver jewelry crafted by a local Native American artisan. Sedona’s proximity to many Native American communities including the Zuni, Hopi, Navajo and the Yavapai-Apache reservations make this an ideal spot to find a special treasure. Ask your shopkeeper or concierge to explain how you can tell if the piece is authentically Native made.
Another favorite thing to bring home from Sedona is artwork. With many choices to fit your style, it is easy to enliven your home or office with contemporary painting, modern sculpture, Native American pottery, Western art, masterworks, wearable art of all kinds or framed photography. On the first Friday of the month, don’t miss special art receptions at the First Friday Gallery Tours. Most galleries will pack and ship your selections. Art connects at so many levels, that it will spark memories of your Sedona vacation for years to come.
