Five tips to stay on track (and become the favorite gifter)


Our thoughts (and taste buds!) are already on Thanksgiving, and before we know it, Christmas will be here too. If you’re already planning presents, you might agree with us that as much as holiday gifts bring some of the greatest moments, planning and shopping can be sometimes overwhelming.

We have prepared five gifting tips to ease the process. 

1. List it all

Making a list of who you are buying for, and what kind of presents is the first step to staying on budget and narrowing your search. Assign each of these fortunate humans (and pets)  an approximate budget so when you look for ideas, you can stay on track.

2. Look for deals and compare prices

Once you have your ideas down on paper, see if you can score a deal on some of them. Black Friday and Cyber Monday offers are a great place to start. Remember to compare prices, both online and in person. Sometimes stores might give you the online price without having to worry about shipping costs or delivery times.

3. Plan a shopping trip

Once you have your list lined up, why not make shopping fun? Hotel rates in Myrtle Beach are low during the winter months and often offer plenty of good deals. From some of the top fashion brands at Tanger Outlets and Barefoot Landing to local shops and restaurants at Broadway at the Beach and Market Common, there are very few things you can’t find in and around Myrtle Beach. At the end of the day, make sure you enjoy some well-deserved ocean views from your room.

4. Try to buy local

Although there will be always some gifts that you might not find around your area, there’s always an opportunity to buy locally. From handmade art to curated selections of goodies, local stores can provide the most unique and original gifts.

5. Gift experiences

There are so many ways to get creative with your holiday gifts, and Myrtle Beach has plenty of experiences to choose from. How does a beachfront stay with free attraction tickets sound? Check out our deals— and master the art of the perfect gift.
