Palmetto Dunes Holiday Gift Guide: Shopping Small this Holiday

The holidays are fast approaching and we know that everyone is looking for that special something for the loved ones on their gift list. We know that Black Friday Deals can be a huge help when it comes to finding gifts at a steal, but if you’re looking for a truly unique gift that says a little bit more, local boutiques often beat out big box stores. This year, celebrate Small Business Saturday with our top picks for small business and specialty stores in Hilton Head Island.

Nash Gallery

More than just a gallery, Nash Gallery always has a wide variety of unique items for even the pickiest of people on your gift list. TripAdvisor member ChristinaCatLvr says “This is a 100% artists driven gallery and nothing is mass-produced like other shops on HHI. They have gift items at all cost levels so [there’s] lots to choose from.” We couldn’t agree more!

Christmas on the Harbour

Since we’re talking about Christmas gifts, this has to be a must-stop on our list! Christmas on the Harbour is one of the many amazing shops in Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina, and despite its name, it is open year round. Find the perfect ornament or stocking stuffer, or get their friendly and knowledgeable staff to help you pick out the perfect present.

Neptune’s Niche

This gift shop, located steps from the iconic Neptune Statue at Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina, is a veritable one-stop shop for stocking stuffers and thoughtful gifts—especially if the person on your list loves Hilton Head Island.


Those who appreciate the finer things in life will love a special something from Taffeta, the European fashion boutique in Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina. Family owned and operated for close to 30 years, this shop finds clothing, shoes, and accessories from Europe and brings them to Lowcountry!

Tradewinds Trinkets and Treasures

Hilton Head Social Bakery Rum Cake

Local Restaurants

If you’ve visited Hilton Head Island, you know the food here can’t be beat! Treat the foodie on your list to a special meal with a gift card to their favorite Hilton Head restaurant—or introduce them to one of your own! Shelter Cove Harbour and Marina has some of the best restaurants (and some of the best views) around, and they all offer gift certificates. Stop by Scott’s Fish Market, San Miguel’s, Mediterranean Harbour or Bucci & Murray’s for outstanding casual dining, or grab a gift card from Bistro 17 or ELA’S if you’re looking to impress with something more upscale. Shopping for someone with a sweet tooth? Don’t miss Hilton Head Social Bakery for specialty baked goods or a gift certificate so they can choose their own.

Pro Shops

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the incredible selection at each of our golf pro shops! Stop in to find the perfect gift for the golfer on your list. We carry brands such as Peter Millar, Greyson Clothiers, Free Fly, Odyssey Golf, and more! Our Tennis & Pickleball Center has an incredible pro shop, too. One of the largest on the island, it’s stocked with top brands in exercise, tennis, and pickleball gear. For a gift that keeps on giving, talk to a member of staff about gifting a golf or tennis membership!

Palmetto Dunes’ Local Stores

Hilton Head Outfitters is known for its rental equipment and outdoor adventure, however, its shop also has an incredible array of gifts for people of all ages! Choose from comfy sweatshirts, awesome tees, beach gear, fishing equipment, and tons more for the outdoor enthusiast on your list. And while the General Store is obviously an excellent choice to stop for breakfast, did you there is a wide selection of gifts on offer there as well!
