TOP 5 STOPS CHARLESTON FARM­ERS MAR­KET'S HOL­I­DAY MAR­KET

This spe­cial pop-up in Mar­ion Square spans three week­ends in De­cem­ber and has se­ri­ous riches, which change each year. Be on the look­out for Grit & Grace oys­ter-shell or­na­ments, Bar­bara’s Sweet­grass Bas­kets, and Carolina Millinery Com­pany’s hand­made hats.

CROGHAN’S JEWEL BOX

Clas­sic and re­splen­dent, this land­mark shop is the spot for an an­nual Charleston or­na­ment as well as a trea­sure trove of new and es­tate jew­elry.

WORTH­WHILE

The cheeky Christ­mas or­na­ments are ir­re­sistible, and the ur­ban-chic fash­ions are one of a kind.

RO SHAM BEAUX

A won­der­ful spot for house­wares and art, this com­modi­ous shop is also an in­spi­ra­tion stop for light­ing, fur­ni­ture, and de­sign.

CHRISTOPHE AR­TI­SAN CHO­CO­LATIER-PÂTISSIER

The retro-fab­u­lous choco­late hol­i­day fig­ures are nearly too beau­ti­ful to give away (much less de­vour), but they’re worth suf­fer­ing over. So are the as­sort­ments of truf­fles and hand­painted choco­lates.

SWEET DIGS

THE DEW­BERRY

You won’t look at an of­fice build­ing the same way af­ter stay­ing at this bou­tique ho­tel that oc­cu­pies the circa1964 L. Men­del Rivers Fed­eral Build­ing and over­looks Mar­ion Square. The Dew­berry’s in­te­ri­ors are sump­tu­ous, the Liv­ing Room lobby is one of the buzzi­est spots to hang out in the city, and the guest rooms (fea­tur­ing cus­tom Stick­ley ar­moires and sea­son­ally ro­tat­ing in-room cock­tail bars) are ur­bane nests. Rates from $265.
