Ah, holiday shopping! While it can prove slightly stressful if you aren’t able to find the perfect gift for a loved one, this annual activity is full of excitement and holiday cheer. And if you know where to shop, you’re sure to find everything you need—and can support small businesses in the process! Today, we’re guiding you to the best holiday shopping experience, with seven small shops to patronize in Savannah this Black Friday!
#1 Christmas on the River
So, this might not be a destination for gifts, per say. But, for festive goodies to get yourself in the Christmas spirit, there is no better stop than Christmas on the River! If you’re feeling stressed already about shopping, we recommend making a trip here to center yourself in all things holiday joy. It will put you right in the mood!!
#2 Punch and Judy
If you’ve got little ones on your list, Punch and Judy is a must! This boutique has been family-owned since 1946, and it is a wonderland for the kiddos. This is especially true during the holidays, as the staff always incorporates themed gifties like seasonal dresses, stuffed animals, and more.
If you have a creative type in your circle and/or want to support the efforts of local art students, shopSCAD is your destination. From jewelry and pottery, to photography, paintings, and décor, there is something for just about everyone. Plus, shopping here will be almost like visiting a gallery—a fun excursion for you even as you productively check items off of your list!
For many, the most cherished holiday gifts are beautifully made, sure-to-last practical items. Does that sound like someone in your life? Well, head on over to Satchel! The studio and store offers handbags and leather goods of the utmost quality in an array of styles.
#5 The Book Lady Bookstore
When you’ve got a bibliophile to buy for, it might feel overwhelming to find a book they want but don’t have. Enter, The Book Lady Bookstore! With a collection of rare and out-of-print finds, you’re sure to stumble upon a gift to wow your book lover.
It’s spa time! Really though, who doesn’t want to receive a decadent, luxurious bath and body product for the holidays? The beauty of this gift type is that many of us would enjoy it but won’t buy it for ourselves. Make a stop at one of Nourish’s two Savannah locations to find delightful bath bombs, soap bars, and more. While you’re there, pick yourself up a Georgia Christmas Bath Fizzie! It’s divine!
#7 The Cottage Shop
If you’re thinking of purchasing something delicate and lovely for one of your loved ones, The Cottage Shop is going to be your shop! With fine china, silverware, and products from trendy glassware companies like Corkcicle, the 1946-founded boutique has a robust selection for your browsing pleasure!
So, put your comfy shoes on, grab your purse, stop into your favorite local coffee shop (might we suggest Bitty & Beau’s or The Coffee Fox), and head out for a shopping spree in Savannah this Black Friday! We hope this list helps you find the perfect something special for everyone on your list.
