It happens every holiday season. You get caught up in the tree decoration, cookie baking, and cheesy Hallmark movies and push the holiday shopping off until the very last minute. Thankfully, here at Charleston Flower Market, we’ve got no shortage of perfect presents for those few stragglers left on your gift list. Here are a few ideas for finding the right holiday present for everyone on your list before Christmas arrives:
Everyone loves one last gorgeous piece of holiday decor. A magnolia wreath for the front door or over the dining room mirror would be especially enjoyed. Flowers are always a reminder of how much someone’s friendship means to you, and for people who may have downsized and don’t put up a lot of decorations a festive bouquet would be a thoughtful gift.
Your stylish friend or cousin will enjoy sprucing up their wardrobe with something new and fresh for the new year, like a scarf, sweater or purse. That favorite teacher in your child’s school would love a fabulous new tote to carry papers back and forth next semester. Pick up some cute new socks or gloves to keep on hand for those unexpected gift needs. No matter what your budget, we've got plenty of wardrobe additions to grace your friend's closet in the upcoming year.
No matter which friend is left on your gift list for the season, everyone always has room for a new candle. We have many freshly scented candles in the shop, perfect for cozying up the house throughout the winter. From calming beach scents to the fruity aroma of your friend’s favorite wine, candles make the perfect gifts to keep your loved ones warm into the New Year.
Every woman loves new jewelry, and the holidays are the perfect excuse to adorn both yourself and your best girlfriends in some sparkly new trinkets. It’s always a delight unwrapping a new set of earrings, a necklace or cuff in a trendy new style. If you see something that really speaks to you, chances are your BFF will be thrilled to receive it and show it off over the holidays as well. Be sure to treat yourself to something as well!
Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a thoughtfully given gift card. Sure, a gift card is one of the easier last minute gifts, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t appreciated by their recipients! Especially when it comes to those more particular friends, a gift card lets your loved one do the shopping and pick something they're sure to love. Whether it's to their favorite restaurant or local boutique, a thoughtful Christmas card and a gift certificate or card make a lovely gift for any last minute additions to your holiday gift list.
