Shopping is always fun in Savannah, but especially during the Yuletide season, the "giving spirit" is alive and well throughout the city’s many shops, boutiques and gourmet markets.
For a unique selection of gifts, ShopSCAD offers specially crafted items by Savannah College of Art and Design students, alumni, faculty and staff. You'll find distinctive items such as one-of-a-kind cutting boards made from fallen timber, to stunning handcrafted jewelry, art work, accessories and more.
If you're looking for soft handbags and leather goods for someone on your list, be sure to visit Satchel. Along with being able to purchase the bags and accessories you see there, you can design your own.
Jewelry is always a hit for Christmas and some of the best–and most reasonably priced–pieces can be found at ZIA Boutique, a Broughton Street store offering unique handmade jewelry in a worldly ambiance.
The "health buffs" on your list will appreciate anything you give them from Verdant Kitchen - especially their Ginger Pecans. This self-styled "gourmet and wellness" company focuses on food and snacks made with ginger and turmeric.
For the children on your list, a visit to Punch & Judy offers everything to designer diaper bags to plush stuffed animals and cute clothing.
Savannah-made treats make great gifts for family, friends and colleagues. Pick up delectable cookies at Byrd’s Famous Cookies @ City Market and local honey at Broughton Street shop the Savannah Bee Company.
