If you have put off buying that Valentines Day gift, don’t fret! There is still some hope for us procrastinators to come up with a pleasing and meaningful gift idea without having to spend a fortune to do it! We’ve compiled some last minute local Valentines gifts from some of our local Beaufort businesses that won’t break the bank, and won’t let her, or him, down.
Palmetto & Moon pendant from Modern Jewelers.
Let her wear her South Carolina pride wherever she goes while making a fashion statement at the same time. The wildly popular pendant is available in a 1/4 ct up to a full 1ct size.
A hand made glass heart by Luke Adams from Beaufort River Glass.
Make sure she knows she’s loved with one of these amazingly designed glass pieces. You may also find other things at the store that she would equally love. There’s so much to choose from at Beaufort River Glass.
Homemade chocolate from The Chocolate Tree.
Nothing says LOVE like chocolate and The Chocolate Tree has it all. From chocolate hearts, chocolate covered oreos and even white chocolate long stemmed roses, there’s a lot to choose from. Chocolate is also a unisex item, perfect for him or her.
While we’re talking about him, another idea is to stop by Bay Street Outfitters and grab him a Yeti cooler or one of these cool tumblers for the truck. Everyone knows that Yeti is a signifier of a rugged, cool lifestyle. Find coolers, tumblers in many sizes, hats, shirts and lots more.
Candles from The Beaufort Candle Company at The Beaufort Emporium.
She loves candles and they’re always a great last minute gift. The Beaufort Candle Company makes each candle by hand locally and offers a variety of scents with a local appeal, like Hunting Island and Beaufort. No, they don’t smell like pluff mud either.
Lollia perfumes from Lulu Burgess.
Perfume is always a good gift and the softer scents of Lollia are sure to please her. You’ll also get some brownie points when you tell her that it’s listed as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things in the latest issue of Oprah Magazine. (we’re really trying to help!)
Local art from the BeaufortPics Gallery.
Gift the gift of art and let her hang her favorite local scene in any room of the home or even the office. Local photographer Phil Heim has dozens of canvasses to choose from at his Bay Street gallery.
A gift card to her favorite local restaurant.
All of Beaufort’s fantastic restaurants also offer gift cards in any amount you need. Grab one for her from her favorite local spot for her next girls night out or from a spot she hasn’t tried yet, setting up her next foodie adventure.
Of course, these are just a few ideas. Each of Beaufort’s local businesses have something special and unique to offer. Whether you’re looking for that one of a kind gift or something that says ‘I love you’, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for.
Happy Valentines Day!
