Holiday Gift Guide: Shop Local Wilmington

Around Town

Shop Local Wilmington

When you buy something from a maker or a small business owner you’re buying more than just an object. You are directly supporting a friend or neighbor AND putting money back in the local Wilmington, N.C. economy is never a bad thing. As small business owners shopping local is near and dear to our hearts. Drewe and Kate wouldn’t have been a possible business venture without the love and support of our community taking a chance on a new concept.

We wanted to take a little stress out of holiday shopping by showing you are favorite local gifts – we wouldn’t blame you for keeping some of this for yourself, plus the best part of shopping locally is that you don’t have to wait 3-5 business days to enjoy your new treats.

The Deal: Spend $150+ and get a $25 gift card

Drewe’s Pick:

Calla Long Sleeve Mini Dress  I adore anything with a ruffle detail and this dress is perfect for any holiday get together.

I also LOVE this framed “ji raya ubud” abstract print by Brooke Eagle Art ($100). These travel inspired abstracts are some of my favorite pieces by Brooke.

More about the piece, “This street in Ubud is where we experienced so much culture in Bali. during our time there, there was a royal cremation ceremony which included a parade down the street full of traditional balinese clothing, music, dance and giant figures covered in fresh flowers were built on top of a series of huge bamboo grids. i could (and should) write a whole blog post on this ceremony! Ubud is such a peaceful place filled with rice terraces and rainforest, waterfalls, temples, and unlimited delicious and colorful vegan food. don’t leave without trying out kismet- a delicious vegetarian restaurant. i got the vegan nuggets (you literally would never know the difference) with the asian salad bowl topped with tempeh and satay skewers. it is making my mouth water just thinking about it, yum. Read about the rest of the collection here.

Kate’s Pick:

I am ALL about comfort during the holidays and when I saw this perfect stonewash robe I knew it was meant to be. Paired with one of MISSIO’S Sun-Soaked Citrus Candle and I am all set for a Hallmark movie binge.

Tiny wallets are the future! We are always amazed by the craftsmanship of Ruby Assata’s leather goods. Every tiny wallet is made by hand and numbered. They are the perfect size for any bag and feature two slots for cash or cards. Our favorite part of the tiny wallet is the gorgeous hand screen printed “luncheon” lining. These are the perfect gift for literally anyone on your list and the perfect way to give someone a gift card.
