Something for Everyone on Your List: Holiday Gift Guide 2017

Gift an experience your loved one will never forget:

  • Visit the historic Dock Street Theater for a festive performance of the Christmas Carol
  • Gift tickets to your nature-loving relatives for the Southeastern Wildlife Expo coming up in February
  • Be a tourist in your own town! Historical carriage rides, walking tours, Charleston Harbor Cruise or a visit to a local plantation is always appreciated.

Buy Local this Holiday Season by visiting these stores:

  • Your special someone will love a unique piece of jewelry from Croghan’s Jewel Box
  • You can’t go wrong with a gift certificate to their favorite local restaurant, or perhaps a new one they haven’t tried yet!
  • An out-of-town relative who loves the Holy City would enjoy a subscription to Charleston Magazine
  • Fill a sweetgrass basket with some locally curated goods—tea from Charleston Tea Plantation, spices from Charleston Spice Company, and some Lowcountry Olive Oil
