Ever notice how you find much cooler stuff to buy on vacation than you ever find at home? Maybe it`s something in the salt air. At any rate, shopping on Alabama`s Gulf Coast truly offers something for everyone. Whether you`re looking for cheesy Alabama souvenirs that the kids can take home or a closet-full of Hawaiian shirts for your husband, you can shop `til your credit card drops. In addition to Alabama gift stores, beach boutiques, art galleries, souvenir shops and furniture stores, you`ll definitely want to check out Tanger Outlet Center.
