It's the most stressful time of the year! Time to do your holiday shopping. You've got so many people to shop for, and so few ideas about what to get them. Fear not, Holiday Shopper, we've come to the rescue. Take a gander at our 2018 Holiday Gift Guide to find something for everyone on your list. We have separated our guide into different types of people as well as defining gifts, shops, and experiences perfect for that kind of person. You might even be inspired to get something for yourself (don't worry, we won't tell).
You’ve had to ask them what a .JPG is, you’ve asked them how to convert to a PDF, and they have definitely asked you if you had it plugged in. We’re talking about the tech guru. They always have the most cutting-edge technology, and the coolest gadgets. Help them stay ahead of the curve with these gifts.
Kids can be some of the easiest, or most difficult people to shop for. There is rarely an in-between (any parent can attest to this). Your heart wants to get them something that will make their eyes light up, but at the same time, your mind wants to get them a gift that they can use and won’t be thrown away by New Years. We’ve got you covered on both fronts.
Pets are a part of the family. Sometimes, they are the MOST important member of the family. They are cute, furry, adorable, wonderful, amazing, fantastic…can you tell we love pets? There are those who dote over their pets like they are their children. They throw birthday parties for their pets, they event buy them Christmas gifts. They’re going to appreciate when you show up with a gift for their furry friends.
You know those people that light up the room when they walk in? They are the life of the party. What do you get these people? You want something to match their energy, something that will wow them. Now you can light up their holiday like it’s a house party.
We all have that one friend, the one with expensive taste. They like glitz and glamour and all things opulent. This could be the year that you are ready to spoil them, really spoil them. These are gifts that you can splurge on, while still keeping things unique. The best sparkle is the sparkle in their eye when they see one of these luxurious gifts.
We all have that one friend. The one who is always on the cutting edge of fashion. They always look impeccably put together. They never have a bad hair day. Their accessory game is on point. What do you get this person? You want to wow them with your gift. Luckily, you can.
Sometimes they’re covered in paint, and other times they are asking you to run lines. Your artsy friend sure is…creative. You want to foster that creativity and let them express themselves. They appreciate art, and you want to show them you do too. Much to our relief, you don’t have to go to an exclusive art auction to find great artistic gifts.
As hard as it is to believe for some of us, there are people who like to stay fit and go outside (trust us on this). Ok, maybe that is dramatic. We like to get out some too. Let’s say you have one of these dynamic adventurers in your life. You want to get them something that will help them on their next adventure, or help them keep their sleek physique. It just so happens we are in the foothills.
Autumn is in full swing, and as of this week it is actually starting to feel like it. It is time to break out the sweaters, scarfs, and pumpkin spiced lattes. (Ok, we’ll be honest, we’ve been drinking PSLs since early September.) Soon, the fall foliage will be at its peak. That means it’s time for what the locals affectionately refer to as leaf lookin’. There is something about the swaths of color that really drives people wild, us included. We’ve gathered together some of the best places in the Upstate and adjacent for you to see the leaves in all of their splendor. You better be-leaf it Upstaters!
