Everyone knows Miami Beach hotels are anything but average – even the gift shops offer more than sunscreen and “Miami Beach” t-shirts. From selling Guiseppe Zanotti and Philip Lim to terrariums and moss wall installations, these Miami Beach hotel shops are just as much of a destination as the hotels themselves.
Plant the Future at 1 Hotel
Plant the Future at 1 Hotel is far from your traditional hotel gift shop. While this outpost of Wynwood’s popular botanic design studio and retailer may not offer sunscreen and lotion, it does offer a chance to take a piece of nature home with you from your vacation. Keep it simple with the purchase of a dish garden, terrarium or figurine that houses cacti and other unique organic greenery, or go all out and purchase a custom installation of your very own moss wall similar to the ones found throughout the hotel.
BASE Delano at The Delano
Tucked away in The Delano, you will find BASE, the pioneer that paved the way for the market of unique hotel shops. The collection of items found in BASE includes an abundance of rarities and exclusive items – and we would expect nothing less from the store’s curator and creative director Steven Giles. The lifestyle retailer carries everything from collectible vinyls and urban wear, to MYKITA shades and designer collaborations, making it the mecca for all hip, savvy shoppers.

Cowshed at Soho Beach House
Soho Beach House may be an exclusive member (and guest) only club, but that is exactly what makes Cowshed such a desirable shopping destination. From the beach bags and bikinis, to the clothing perfect for a night out on Miami Beach, Cowshed has a diverse and chic collection that you wont find in any department stores. The store is also home to an extensive range of Cowshed bath and body products that will make your vacation, or staycation, even more indulgent.
Limited Edition and The Edition Hotel
Limited Edition, cleverly named after the hotel it can be found in, redefines the retail experience with an expertly curated collection by Steven Giles, Creative Director of BASE. The shop is loaded with exclusive and uncommon items and designer collaborations including hand-made MYKITA sunglasses, Philip Lim x Linda Farrow handbags and Limited Edition NIXON time pieces. Books, vinyls and magazines from around the globe, as well as Comme Des Garçons parfums and Walt Cassidy jewelry can also be found in the store to make your collection of travel possessions all the more special.

Ida and Harry at The Fontainbleau
Ida and Harry, named in honor of Brook Soffer’s grandparents, changed the resort-shop game when it opened back in 2008. The lavish boutique carries over 50 top designer names in clothing and accessories for both women and men. Emilio Pucci, Edie Parker, Haute Hippie, Guiseppe Zanotti, Valentino and Dsquared2 are only a few of the designers you will be donning on your Miami outings after a quick browse through the luxuriously curated shop.
