Are you hoping to squeeze in some last minute shopping before the New Year? If so, you may want to read through our Saint Simons real estate agencyâ€™s three quick tips for holiday shoppers.
They may just help you finish all of your seasonal shopping on the island with time to spare.
#1: Hit the Hot Spots Early
On Saint Simons Island, there are several charming places to shop for the holidays.
Two of the regionâ€™s most popular spots are St. Simons Island Pier Village Market and Redfern Village. As a matter of fact, the Pier is such a hot spot, that it has a history of attracting celebrities like actor Luke Wilson. He was just there in early December 2013. Because of that wide spread popularity, our Saint Simons real estate agents suggest visiting the areas at off peak hours or carpooling to the shopping districts with friends. That way, you are less apt to have trouble finding a parking spot.
#2: Consider Gift Certificates
Gift certificates for St. Simons Islandsâ€™ restaurants, day spas and fitness centers would make perfect last minute gifts too. Sometimes you can even pre-order the certificates by phone or online. There are many businesses on the island that offer such services. Among them are the Island Day Spa, Kimberlyâ€™s Back Porch and Suite Retreat 104 Salon & Spa.
#3: Visit Museum/Attraction Gift Shops
Lastly, why not finish your last bit of holiday shopping at one of Saint Simons tourist attractions? They tend to have interesting gift shops on site with items that you’re not likely to find anywhere else.
Some of the places to consider visiting in that regard are the A.W. Jones Heritage Center, the Maritime Museum Store, Fort Fredericaâ€™s Bookstore and the Arthur J. Moore Methodist Museum.
