I've long been a fan of Charleston Inside Out Magazine as it's the best little visitors guide to the lowcountry. Anyone that visits-- I always tell them to pick up a copy at the airport or the grocery store on their way into town as it contains the best recommendations on where to go, what to do, and the best places to eat. I love that it's a quarterly guide that is always up to date with the latest happenings around town.
This year I was so excited to curate a selection of very special items from local Charleston area retailers for the Winter Issue. Below are a few of my favorite picks for gift giving from Christmas through Valentine's Day, and all of these items can be shipped.

Seaberry Body Products: Old Whaling Company was a must for this list as every single scent they have is amazing, and I love that they manufacture all of their products right here in Charleston. The Seaberry scent is very luscious and has been a fave of mine for years.
Their flagship store is located at 409 King Street, suite 100, Charleston.
Tortoise Serving Tray: Rhodes Home & Gift is right over the bridge in West Ashley. They have a sister store, Rhodes Boutique, 2 doors down that is chocked full of beautiful clothing and accessories.
It was hard to pick just one item from Rhodes as I also grabbed several of their LED trees and other items on a recent shopping visit-- but this tortoise serving tray is STUNNING. It's a great serving piece for yourself or someone who loves to entertain. Rhodes Home & Gift is located at 84 Folly Road Blvd, Charleston.
Gold Party Shoes: Maris DeHart has been a go-to boutique to shop for apparel and accessories for many years. Every single time I wear these gold platfoms people stop me on the street and ask where they are from. The perfect party shoe to add to your sweetie's gift giving list for YOU!
Maris DeHart is located at 32 Vendue Range, Charleston

Charleston boasts some amazing artists, designers, and beautiful boutiques that rival any bustling city. Amidst all of the linking to prime deals from that rainforest company-- I think it's so important to support our local small businesses. Without them our cities lose the flavor that makes them unique.
I hope this holiday season you will choose to support some of these amazing small businesses as part of your gift giving plans. You know what they say-- with every purchase an actual person does a little happy dance. And that's some #goodjuju!
