Holiday Gift Guide: Shopping Local in Savannah, Ga
Posted on December 04 2017
It’s almost that time of year again- the time of year where we get to show our friends and family how much we truly appreciate them! We know it can sometimes be stressful finding just the right thing to give as a gift, but we’re going to help you get a head start on holiday shopping at some of our favorite local spots in Savannah. Listed below are foolproof gift ideas for even your hardest to shop for loved ones (from your sister to your mother-in-law!). Happy Holidays!
E. Shaver, Bookseller
For that girl you know that’s a total bookworm, try buying something from one of Savannah’s most popular bookstores, E. Shaver. Independently owned since 1975, E. Shaver’s has a uniquely curated selection of gifts and with something from every genre, there’s bound to be more than a few books you’ll have to choose between for a perfectly thoughtful gift.
ShopSCAD has a great selection of gifts for the art-enthusiastic girl you know! Everything sold is made by art students at the Savannah College of Art and Design, which makes their products truly one-of-a-kind. For a great home-ware gift idea, we suggest this beautiful pillow designed by SCAD alum, Katy Skelton.
One of our favorite local spots for unique handmade leather goods is Satchel. Made in Savannah, their bags are super unique- which makes these leopard print handbags perfect for the girl you know that’s an avid shopper and already has just about everything.
Wild Flower Gypsy
Looking for a gift that will appeal to the beauty-obsessed girl? We’re currently loving Wildflower Gypsy. The salon and apothecary is a brand new addition to Savannah’s local shopping scene with plans to open in December 2017. Checkout their online selection of holistic and organic skin and hair care. One of our favorites is the Gypsy Garden Bath Soak that has calming, skin softening salts and nourishing oils.
When strolling the streets of Savannah, it’s hard to resist stopping in at the Paris Market. As one of our favorite shops for gift inspiration, Paris Market’s plethora of products makes it easy to find something for everyone. For this gift idea, we decided to feature something that might work if you’re unsure of what someone might like as a gift (for example, your brother’s girlfriend). The “Savannah” candle is a Paris Market exclusive and acts as a unique gift idea that anyone will appreciate. Add in a bag of their almond shortbread cookies (a collaboration with Byrd Cookie Company), because who doesn’t love something tasty?
Another favorite of ours for natural beauty products is Nourish, which offers a wide variety of natural bath products at great prices. For a great gift, we recommend something soothing and luxurious like their Savannah Garden Bath Fizzie.
If you’re seeking gifts that emulate elegance and sophistication, check out our sister store, Harper Boutique, which is the perfect stop for holiday dresses. Whether it’s your mom, your grandmother, your sister, or your best friend, Harper’s merchandise is perfect for their modern and unique style.
Don’t forget to do some holiday shopping at Red Clover! We’d love to help you pick out some stylish accessories that’ll be a hit with just about anyone, and the best part is, they won’t blow your budget! Here are a few of our favorite gift ideas that are shop-able online!
1. Globe Trotter Scarf
Tried and true, giving a scarf as a gift will be sure to make anyone of any age happy. On season and never out of style, a warm scarf is the perfect present. We love the whimsical print of the Globe Trotter Scarf! The vibrant pops of red will brighten up any outfit.
2. Hazey Grey Necklace, $20
If you’re looking for a gift that’s a little more elegant, we suggest the Hazey Grey Necklace. The beautiful teardrop, stone pendant is on trend and will be sure to wow anyone who receives it. The colors of this necklace also allow it to easily transition into spring.
4. Mystic Moss Cardigan
Looking for an alternative to a sweater? Everyone loves a good cardigan, especially one like the Mystic Moss Cardigan. Made from a chenille material, the cozy-ness of it will be sure to wow your most fashion-conscious friend or family member. The color makes it easy to throw on over any outfit and the silhouette is super flattering!
5. The Best Brown Handbag
Whoever receives The Best Brown Handbag will definitely get tons of use out of it due to it’s versatility. The natural color goes with everything and the vegan leather bag comes with a smaller crossbody inside. This gift is truly great for any age!
