Perfect for the beach, tailgate, or picnic in a park, Seabird Society outdoor blankets are oversized (76”x76”), have a water-resistant bottom layer, sewn-in straps for easy carrying when your hands are full, and zip pockets so you won’t lose your keys, phone, or sunglasses. They even come with four stakes to secure the blankets into the ground.
Purchase Seabird Society blankets directly from their website or shop in-person at Fieldshop by Garden & Gun in downtown Charleston.
MacBailey Candle Company

The brainchild of a Charleston couple, MacBailey Candle Company is a line of soy candles made with no additives and poured into vessels purposely meant to be reused in any way the buyer chooses. The hand-poured concrete vessels are one-of-a-kind with a solid, industrial feel, unlike the typical glass container.
Purchase MacBailey candles online or in their downtown Charleston store.

Sohp Shop, a clever line of soap created by kids for kids, is the perfect stocking stuffer for the children in your life. Washing hands has never been as important as it has been these past two years during the pandemic, and these soaps make hygiene a fun activity for kids. Inside each cube of soap is a prize waiting to be revealed.
Purchase Sohp Shop soap online or at the Tiny Tassel boutique in Charleston.

Beautifully handcrafted from blade to sheath, the distinctive design and quality wood and steel make these knives the envy of every oyster roast and become a gift to pass down through generations.
Purchase Williams Knife Company knives online.

A unique accessories company that started with a handmade gift of a bowtie made of duck feathers, the Brackish brand has grown to include pocket squares, cummerbunds, jewelry, and more, each made with sustainably sourced feathers, taking between four to five hours and 15 sets of hands to complete. Brackish gifts are sure to become heirlooms.
