Browseabout Books is a nice shop on the main drag that is much more than the name implies. Besides books there are gifts of all kinds, home accessories, candles, candies, kids toys, seasonal items and beach themed merchandise and then also some general souvenirs.

This cute little gift shop/bookstore has a large selection of books that are well organized into different sections. They have a decent selection of travel books as well as extensive contemporary fiction (perfect for finding a beach read).

Oval stickers, tshirts, soap, local books, paintings, fridge magnets... anything you need to remember your stay in Rehoboth is here. Also open early if you want to get a print copy of the Post or Journal.
