It's time to get on the bandwagon of buying local this Christmas; let's #SHOPSMALLYALL!  Your friends and relatives will love getting a little piece of Charleston or something handmade this year, so here are some local finds for the special guys and gals in your life.  At my house, my pup is one of those special gals, so I also added a couple of pet friendly ideas (so Fido doesn't feel left out). Some of these products may be sponsored or affiliate links, but all gift recommendations are my hand-selected picks.  Thank you for supporting small businesses, including my own!
