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

  • Lessons related to their favorite hobby: Know a golfer? Aspiring artist? Fitness buff? Golf lessons, an art class or series of classes, and class passes to a boutique gym are easy to get and give.
  • Tickets to the Southeastern Wildlife Expo: As one of Charleston’s top events each year, this Expo has a wide range of activities to choose from. Perfect for the sportsmen, wildlife or nature lover, artists and conservationists in your life.
  • Tickets to a Wine & Food event: With a wide range of activities, including lunches, dinners, educational events, tasting tents and more, the Charleston Wine & Food Festival is an all-around crowd pleaser.
  • Tickets to local theatre: The Footlight Players and Charleston Stage gift certificates are a thoughtful, unique gift. Treat someone you love to a night out on the town. Pair it with a gift certificate to one of your favorite local restaurants and this gift will make for an evening to remember!
