Our First Annual Holiday Gift Guide is here! We are so crazy about our local businesses, and wanted to provide you with an easy way to shop our local favorites and connect with local businesses this holiday season!

For those that offer online shopping, we’ve linked them so that with a simple click you can grab these great holiday gifts, and support local businesses at the same time. We encourage you to stop by these awesome locations and say hi in person! Don’t miss the chance to #shoplocal and #ShopDestin30a this holiday season.
We’ve got a GIVEAWAY happening at the end of the post for your chance to WIN some of these gifts before Christmas!
Best gift ever for your girlfriends? A sippy cup for wine! Made of real glass with insulating sleeve in pretty colors (lavender, peach, turquoise, grey). The secure lid means you can stow your wine in your purse and then just turn the lid to sip when you are ready for some wine! This Shark Tank winner makes a great gift … or grab one for you AND one for your friend!
From Karin, Owner of Drift Home & Gifts 30A :
Come on by DRIFT Home & Gifts 30A for your holiday gift shopping! We’ve got something for everyone you love. Inspired by my love of the coast, I started DRIFT to help create beautiful beach homes that are the center for entertaining and enjoying our family and friends. We have filled our shop with furniture, pillows, rugs, local art, jewelry, gifts and lots of home accessories. Don’t miss our “coastal kids” area to outfit a beach bunkroom and grab gifts for the kids. We love to offer a fun shopping experience including beach music, a cool drink and a warm welcome!
Snuggle much?! This Christmas, we’re SO excited to highlight LA Green’s softest brushed rib knit set. With it’s matching slippers, it is sure to be the perfect gift this holiday season. Great for girlfriends, sisters, and anyone else who loves a snuggly soft pj set.
And for the chef in your life (or the friend with a great kitchen) we are kinda obsessed with these Lovely Y’all Flour Sack Towels! Great for friends, teacher gifts, or add ons in a fun holiday gift basket (and up for grabs in our giveaway!)

These O-Key Rings from Summer House Lifestyle are one of their customer favorites, and we have to agree. They’re perfect for the sophisticated (sometimes hard-to-shop-for) women on your list! Tons of color options from tans, to blues, to blush, and the hot pink number seen here (our personal fave!)
Tucked away in Uptown Grayton, Summer House Lifestyle is packed with perfect gifts for the home, beautiful jewelry, and a children’s section with bedding, prints, blankets, and totes to make any nursery (or new baby gift) swoon-worty. Definitely check them out!
South Walton Stitchery
Who’s ready for the weekend?! Everyone needs a good weekender and South Walton Stitchery can provide not just the bag, but the embroidery to personalize it. From monograms, to logos, to a fun saying, South Walton Stitchery can give your gift that personal touch. We love this Embroidered Weekend Tote Bag, but the options are endless. They have various items in the store ready to be embroidered, or you can bring in your own. From onesies and bibs, to throw pillows, hand towels, beach towels, hats, and even bathrobes, adding a personal touch with embroidery makes it extra special.
The Shard Shop
When we saw these at Mary Hong’s Shard Shop, we knew they had to be on the list. We love our local artists, and this Shard Worx Art Kit makes such a great gift! So perfect for creatives, kids, or anyone who needs a little beach-inspired DIY in their lives.
From Mary Hong, artist + kit creator:
ShardWorx Art Kits are a new and fun way of making art using glass and resin on canvas! The result is intoxicating! Simply lay out your design with crushed glass on your canvas and drizzle resin over it! Your art will be dry and ready to hang in 12 hours. Each kits contains everything you’ll need to create custom art at home.
