VICTORIA, Minn. — The Minnesota Landscape Arboretum AppleHouse is embracing the magic of the winter season. 

The AppleHouse, which is just 1.5 miles west of the arboretum, is probably most well-known as being the birthplace of the Honeycrisp apple. It's been a prime spot for apple picking for decades. But in the last decade, it's also become known for its Holiday Boutique.

In November, the AppleHouse transforms into a cozy gift shop offering a variety of items, from unique gifts to locally produced goodies, toys, clothes and more. 


"We really curate this store and the gift and garden store at the main arboretum with surprising items," Sarah Jackson with the arboretum said. "Things you're not going to see everywhere. There's just something about walking through here. Everybody says this, you just find things unexpected that are just right for that special person." 

All proceeds from the AppleHouse Holiday Boutique go towards the arboretum. It's open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Dec. 6.
