Located inside the Vulcan Park and Museum visitor center, The Anvil is the aptly-named gift shop where you can find a gift for everyone on your holiday list. Yep, you read that right — The Anvil has locally-made goods and Birmingham-centric gifts for even the toughest person on your list.  Just wait until you see the socks!

The Anvil has a much larger selection than you would generally expect from a museum gift shop. You won’t find kitsch-y throwaway knickknacks here. From Birmingham-themed t-shirts and Vulcan-themed socks to books about Birmingham beer, you’ll be covered for the holidays. Bonus:  you’ll be helping to support the Vulcan Park and Museum.

Give A Handmade Good

The Anvil is stocked with handmade goods. A Birmingham “dirt shirt” t-shirt made from local red clay or hat would be the perfect gift for your best friend who loves all things Birmingham and wants to support local artists. A blown-glass Vulcan ornament is a great gift for your parents or for yourself! The shop is full of handmade Earthborn pottery, Crave candles and Color the Ham coloring books.

The shop also stocks many gift options that may not be locally- or hand-made, but that are Birmingham-centric, like the Birmingham Beer book or a college-football mug. You can find Auburn, Alabama and UAB colored Vulcan socks as well as Magic City t-shirts. May we suggest a bobble-head Vulcan for the big-headed guy on your list?  What about a fuzzy headed Vulcan doll for the toddler? Gifts like these are a great option for a friend who loves to visit you in Birmingham, but may not live here. That way, you can gift them a piece of Birmingham to have with them always! Who doesn’t want a little more Birmingham in their life?
