‘Tis the season to get shopping, and we’re here for it. Between Small Business Saturday on November 30, Junior League of Columbia’s Holiday Market December 5-8, and Five Points A Starry Night on December 6, you can take care of everyone on your “nice list” with a little Columbia SC know-how and a few tips from our 2019 gift guide.
For the Culture Vulture
For the Adventure-Seeker
For the Craft Beer Lover
The only thing cooler than a cooler of craft beer is slipping in some local Columbia SC craft brewery swag. Start with Steel Hands Coffee Lager and Tropical IPA and River Rat Red along with t-shirts and hats with the breweries’ unique logos.
For the Hostess with the Mostess
Head to Saluda Avenue in Five Points for The Gourmet Shop’s gorgeous array of Vietri or Hester & Cook platters and serving pieces or that perfect bottle of wine. While in the district, stop by Gibson’s for gifts from luxe candles to unique tea towels, soaps and stationery.
For the Accessory Magnet
Scout and Molly’s of Columbia in Forest Acres boasts an impressive selection of Mignonne Gavigan’s statement jewelry. M Boutique at Cross Hill Market offers multiple local designers including Sugar and Lola’s ultra-wearable pieces crafted of metals and stones.
For the New Homeowner
Nothing cozies up bare shelves like a stack of books. Craft an artful selection from Ed’s Editions in West Columbia and tie them up with a pretty ribbon. Pop into the Junior League of Columbia’s Holiday Market or The Collective for treasures like Post House SC colorful throw pillows.
For the Foodie
If you need a hostess gift or stocking stuffers, make an impression with a selection of truffles from Uptown on Main Street, infused oils from The Crescent Olive on Devine Street or delectable popcorn from Cromer’s in the NOMA district.
