It was a pleasure to scout Charleston Magazine’s Holiday Gift Guide for their November issue. Hunting high and low I scoured the city and it’s limits to find unique gifts from local boutiques and designers. My mission did not disappoint as I discovered new shops from Mt. Pleasant, Kiawah, Johns Island, West Ashley, and downtown. Charleston once again proves to be a shopping destination that offers a variety of merchandise that can excite anyone of any age and background. The guide features gifts from shops including The Commons, The Finicky Filly, Michael Mitchell, Gwynn’s, Celadon, Charleston Revisions, Arsenal Designed, Croghan’s Jewel Box, Rapport, Sugar Snap Pea, Magnifilous Toy Emporium, Bits of Lace, Stella Nova, Copper Penny Shooz, Out of Hand, M.Dumas & Sons, Preservation Society of Charleston, The Shops of Historic Charleston Foundation, Curiosity Vintage, Moon & Lola, GDC Home, Surface Craft Gallery, Southern Protocol

Tink + Tiger is Charleston’s newest label that you need to keep an eye out for. If you think PJ’s are just something you wear indoors, think again. Amanda Greeley, the designer of Tink + Tiger, makes pajamas that women feel good about being seen in. This former New Yorker fell in love with Charleston, just as her parents did when they honeymooned here many years ago. Her new home has inspired her collection in many ways with coastal colors and a care free attitude. Her made in the U.S.A. pajamas are a well edited collection of timeless designs and feel good fabrics consisting of 100% silk and cotton. Tink + Tiger will make you think twice about having to get dressed in the morning.
