Freshfields Gift Guide
It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week, which means it’s time to start knocking out that Christmas list. Whether you’ve got a big family, lots of friends, pets, or even a wish list to drop some hints, Freshfields Village has something for everyone on your list. I popped into several stores at the village to highlight some standout gifts just for you!
Bluemercury has such a great selection of skincare and beauty products for both men and women. Their selection of Jack Black men’s grooming products are some of my husband Gus’s favorites. You can choose from gift sets to full size products that are perfect for stocking stuffers. The Molton Brown Stocking Filler Collection of bath and shower gels are a heavenly sample of scents from Orange & Bergamot to Rhubarb & Rose. The Lune + Aster Swipe + Celebrate lip gloss set features 5 of their best selling shades. This is perfect for the teenager in your life. The Tocca Crema Veloce Set includes 3 of their most popular hand creams. Enriched with natural extracts from coconut oil, shea butter and aloe, this cream will keep your hands hydrated through the dry winter months.
Urban Nirvana has been a staple for self-care in Charleston for decades. From their spa to their retail shop, it’s easy to pamper the one you love. These adorably packaged bath bombs are the perfect stocking stuffers for your little one. For the men in your life they’ll appreciate the sneaker cleaning kit and karaoke soap on a rope. But let’s not discriminate because these are actually great gifts for the ladies too. Anyone can benefit from some extra skin moisturizing by this CoCo Glow coconut oil and the Hemp Body Butter.
Give the gift of a sweet smelling experience at Palmetto Scent Studio. You can book a session to create a unique custom-scented products such as candles, body washes, sugar scrubs, body creams, hand soaps, fragrances, and even hand sanitizers. If you want to grab and go with something that’s pre-made they have these seasonal gift sets or choose from 120 pre-made candles.
Another great local business that is a go to for the furry family member in your life is Dolittle’s. From yummy treats to chew toys, they have the cutest selection of gifts for your cat or dog. They even have dog treats that give back to shelter dogs. And how cute is this chew toy’s take on a Cupcake wine bottle?
Indigo Books has every kind of book for all ages and also some great stocking stuffers and holiday stationary. For the art lover this Jonathan Green book so beautiful and so Charleston. He is an African-American painter best known for his vibrant depictions of Gullah culture in the Lowcountry.
Peyton William has the most beautiful handmade jewelry made right here in Charleston. Made out of semi-precious stones set in modern designs that are both stunning and classic. Her jewelry is like candy for those jewelry lovers like me.
Locally owned GDC Home has all of the accoutrements to make your house festive this season. Their selection of ornaments are witty and fun. Let’s make it a Betty White Christmas!
If your man likes to sip on home made cocktails this book is full of easy recipes and advice from GDC Home.
Looking for the perfect gift for everyone on my list was a pretty easy task at Freshfields Village.
