I went to several jewelry stores to have my grandmothers ring reproduced. Everyone told me that level of handwork was not done anymore. Pampillonia told me they do it all the time. They reproduced my family ring to perfection it was not inexpensive but we are ecstatic at the out come

Much like an old-fashioned ice cream parlor, Georgetown’s Thomas Sweet serves up three dozen varieties of homemade ice cream, frozen yogurt and fudge. From rich and creamy basic flavors to more adventurous creations, such as homemade Amaretto or coffee Oreo creations--plus low-fat, low-carb and sugar-free frozen yogurts--there’s a special treat for sweet tooths and carb-counters alike. Indecisive? Ask the attentive staff for a sample (or two, or three) or try one of their legendary "Blend-Ins"-- it's hard to go wrong by choosing a topping and have it whipped into any flavor. The cherry on top? Portions are generous, and the pricing is fair.

Right on M st Lululemon is a great stop even for a short glance. The welcoming design does not push any merchandise at you and allows you to easily see the employees and bright clothes. The yoga study on the second floor is unique because it actually allows customers to exercise at the store and meet people with the same interests at the same time. The staff is also very friendly and willing to help you find the perfect yoga mat, water bottle, and spandex color combination.

I love oddball little home accessories, so it's no surprise that Tabletop is one of my favorite stores. This store has everything you can think of to add some pop and personality to your home--salt shakers, pillows, rugs, picture frames, bar supplies, kitchen supplies, etc---and it's all funky. Like a lot of these cute little stores, Tabletop also offers off-beat handbags and homemade jewelry, making it an ideal stop for gift shopping.

Going to this Target really depends on your car situation and tolerance for city traffic. If you're going only to pick up a few specific items, then metroing to this Target is a good idea. If you happen to live within walking distance, then this is also the store for you. However, if you need to drive there, I'd find another Target or similar store in MD or VA. The problem with this Target is you basically have to pay a 2 dollar cover charge just to go, and that's only if you spend an hour there. Also, traffic is seriously awful. I've sat in 20-minute lines just to park. My recommendation: look at a map and other store locations before committing to going to this one.

When you're looking for a fun gift for a housewarming, or something to bring to a host/hostess other than a bottle of wine, head to Tabletop. This adorable store has some of the most fun and unusual accessories for your home and life that you won't be able to find anywhere else. Almost every item is a conversation piece and would make a memorable impression. Don't forget to join the mailing list before you leave!

It's an unlikely place for a women's clothing boutique, what with the surrounding office buildings and suit-clad M-Street-types, but Unique Boutique is a small nook for lunchtime shopping and workday wardrobe emergencies. Got a last-minute invite to an after-work cocktail reception? No problem--Unique Boutique has a collection of stylish frocks, from short, satiny numbers to longer, refined gowns that would be suitable for any of Washington's myriad galas. Toward the back, find tights, handbags, jewelry and everything else needed to complete the look. There's more casual fare, too; look for the table of True Religion jeans, as well as shirts, blouses, and a sizable sale rack. Just don't spend the entire paycheck on that lunch break.

A huge part of what makes a shop great is the service, and Hu's has it. I've always been greeted warmly here and the salespeople are never standoffish or pretentious (unlike many boutiques in Georgetown). They carry an excellent selection of shoes and some other accessories (like purses) from many designer names, some of whom you can't find elsewhere in DC: Alexander McQueen, Lanvin, and Costume National, to name a few. The salespeople are eager to help especially if you're looking for something specific, they will personally bring you a selection of shoes if you're not exactly sure what to try on. Expect to pay big bucks here, however - because of their designer-caliber selection, it's hard to find shoes for less than $200. But if you've got the money, spend it here.

A good all in one stop for your dessert needs. The ice cream is moderately priced and always good, but still no where near Dickey's or Max's.

The store is a bit south of the main Friendship Heights drag, but it's like an old-fashioned emporium--an international one to boot, with foods from Mexico, Germany and Britain. On the top floor are fresh groceries, international foods, and a massive wine selection. If you're buying a case of wine, they have a discount, and if you're trying to figure out what to serve at your dinner party, they offer knowledgeable recommendations. But that's just upstairs. Tucked into a corner is the escalator to magicalness. On the lower level of the store is an impressive array of home wares for any home and any occasion, as well as a full pharmacy. Shoppers will find aisles chock full of luggage, glassware, dishes, soap (plain and fancier kinds, like Pacifica), make up, note cards, microwaves, aprons and wheelchairs.
