When it comes to holiday shopping, there’s nothing better than keeping it local.  Some of my favorite shops are right here in our  little beach town, and the best part about it is these stores are also accessible to you online.  You too can have a a little slice of the beach under the tree for your holiday!

I’m a big fan of the SEASIDE® Marine Diffuser from Pizitz.  This marine scent adds the perfect hint of beach in a room and smells divine!
DejaVu is the perfect boutique inspired by the feminine and bohemian styles of yesterday but modernized for today’s trend conscious woman.
By the way, I am in LOVE with this – a specially curated box of goodies from DejaVu, called the Bird Nest.  It’s a monthly subscription program that delivers pure fabulousness in a box the first of the every month:  in this box includes an assortment of hand picked DejaVu accessories right to your door step!  The adorable nests will ALWAYS include a Deja Vu coupon, something sparkly, something sweet, something for your hair, and a fabulous surprise.

    All my favorite stores! Bought the Trophy Husband shirt months ago for my husband’s stocking, but of course I ended up giving it to him the day it arrived!
