Retail Therapy: Lowcountry-Inspired Gifts from the Bluff

Written by Palmetto Bluff

Dec 13, 2022

The Lowcountry is known for many things: abundant natural beauty full of century-old oaks draped in Southern moss, quintessential Lowcountry architecture steeped in southern charm, authentic Lowcountry flavors from BBQ to oysters, and views like no other.

It’s also known for its storied artisans, tradesmen, and local makers, so what better way to get your holiday shopping done and support local businesses than by giving a locally crafted gift to someone special (even if that person is you!).

With the holidays right around the corner (plus shipping delays and stock shortages), there’s no better time to shop locally. We’ve compiled the perfect list of places at the Bluff that offer Lowcountry-inspired gifts sourced from local makers to help make this year’s holiday season merry and bright.

From Boathouse Row in Wilson Village to the hotel at Montage Palmetto Bluff to Moreland Village (and everything in between), shop locally this holiday season by exploring the retail offerings at Palmetto Bluff. Some of the best Southern makers and artisans call this area home, and we’re proud to feature their wares in our specialty shops and boutiques.
