2017 Weekender Gift Guide: Shop Small, Y'all!


I hope you are following my #WeekenderGiftGuide on Instagram so you can take advantage of all of the giveaways and discount codes I'll be sharing through December 12!   This guide will hopefully help you out with those people on your list that truly stump you- from your aunt you only see at Christmas to your hard to shop for husband.  The following companies have sponsored this post, and together we want to encourage you to support small businesses when you shop this year!  

1. For Your Merry Gentleman


For a lower King Street store (read: often fancy), Vieuxtemps sure has some hilarious finds for your man.  Maybe he needs a champagne saber?  Or, perhaps he'd love a flask to take tailgating (it's masked as a pocket survival guide book).  My favorite are these "________ regrets his behavior" cards.  I might know who's tree I want to put those under sometimes, ha!  You can also just keep it classy for your male holiday host, father-in-law, or colleague with a nice bottle of Jack Rudy tonic or local sea salt.  You have plenty of options, so head by Vieuxtemps the next time you're on King Street, or shop their web site for plenty of gifts under $50.


-King Bean Coffee Roasters-

The way to my guy's heart is definitely inside a coffee cup.  King Bean is known for their holiday roasts, which will probably sell out long before Christmas!  "Peace & Joe" is one blend that pleases everyone in our household despite our different tastes, and I'm excited to try the 'Mistletoe Java' this year, too!  This is a gift that works for everyone from your bestie to your coworker to that distant relative that's impossible to shop for.  Shop their entire holiday collection here and use code weekender2017 for free shipping!

2. For the Stylish Southerner

-Humanité Boutique-

I have loved following this boutique on Instagram since earlier this year when I met the founder, Erin Smith, at The Southern C.  I love Erin's concept of bringing affordable fashion to all ages & sizes.  She gives back to charities close to her, & we can shop & support from afar via their online shop.   They will even be touring with a mobile boutique in 2018 so be on the lookout!  BTW: if you're looking for inspiration on creating an awesome video for your business, you need to follow Humanité right now!  Check out her fresh and fun video content here & here

DON'T MISS our Instagram giveaway December 9!  We are giving away this Y'ALL sweatshirt & a pair of Y'ALL socks, too!

I bet you've noticed me posting about Jackson Davenport lately- have you stopped by yet?!  You're definitely going to need to go in ASAP because they are having 20-50% off ALL of their sunglasses through the holidays.  We might have to put a pair of shades under the tree for ourselves, ha!  You can find brands you know and love like Ray-Ban & Costa, but I've also been discovering some really awesome companies that you usually wouldn't even find in SC (i.e. Caroline Abram & Mykita). 

3. For That Person Who Already Has Everything

(or for your lovely wife who loves to travel, hint hint!) 

-Magical Mystery Tours-

Imagine giving your significant other a red envelope that contains a whole surprise trip location & itinerary that you open at the airport!  Magical Mystery Tours is like a modern day travel agent and is all the rage right now- they've been featured in Oprah Magazine and The NY Times!  Control freaks like me, don't worry: MMT has you fill out a survey with all your preferences i.e. ideal climate, budget, and travel dates.  Weekend trips start at $900, and you can mention code WEEKENDER in the notes for $50 off a trip.  Or, if you're not quite ready to give the gift of a whole vacation, email to get a gift card!

4. For the Coastal Collector

I always love supporting family businesses, and this one has been around for more than 30 years!  Who doesn't love strolling the beach and seashell collecting, so these Florida artisans bottled that moment up in a modern & stylish way. offers 3"-5" globes in multiple sand colors, and they even have a candle version! Doesn't this one look so cute styled on a shelf?  Make sure you use code CWHoliday2017 to get 10% off your next purchase.

I first discovered this talented artist at The Southern C, where she gave us some adorable oyster print notecards.  I recently discovered she also has an array of prints and even some awesome pillows.  Personally I am running out of wall space, so I love the idea of incorporating art via throw pillows!

You guys know I'm all about the pineapples, so I'm SUPER excited about our December 7 giveaway; Alexandra and I are giving this pineapple print away on Instagram!  We'll also be activating the code CHSWEEKENDER so you can get *15% off of prints, pillows, and notecards!  *This discount code is only good for 24 hours starting on December 7.
