For the New Homeowner – Lakeside Mercantile:
Lakeside Mercantile is filled to the brim with fantastic housewares, gorgeous clothes and accessories, and loads of other gifts. Located in the heart of Dadeville, this spot is one of our go-to’s whenever we’re looking for a great gift. Some of our favorite items at Lakeside Mercantile would be perfect for a new Lake Martin home owner, especially these Lake Martin pillows!
For the New Mom – Cloud Nine:
If you’ve never been to Alexander City’s Cloud 9, get yourself there immediately. Besides being one of the best shops for apparel and wedding gifts, they happen to have a great selection of items for babies and kids. Winter means there are plenty of opportunities for adorable warm weather baby accessories, and this cable knit hat has us smitten. Pick one up for the new mom and watch her melt before your eyes.
For the Hostess – Catherine’s Market:
Catherine’s Market is our own Lake Martin gem. A grocery store like no other, you’ll find exceptional foodstuffs, wine, and more within its Russell Crossroad walls. Pick-up locally made jam or a great bottle of wine for any hostess gift needs you have. And while you’re there, stay for lunch. It’s a full experience that you simply can’t miss, especially during the holidays.
For the White Elephant Exchange – Children’s Harbor Thrift Store:
While a thrift store might not be your first place to shop for the holidays, you should definitely consider stopping in the Children’s Harbor Thrift Store. All of the proceeds help fund camps and activities for chronically ill children and their families which means you can feel good as you shop. Select a gift for your family white elephant exchange here. We’re sure you can find a buried treasure!
For the Co-Worker – Alabama Street Makers Market:
Office parties can sometimes be a bit of a challenge in the gift-giving department. Enjoy a worry-free gift exchange knowing you’ve brought something special to the party. The Alabama Street Makers Market is the spot to find handmade goods. These hand-lettered ornaments would be great for an ornament swap, or you can pick-up a gift basket for a gift with a larger limit. Either way, add this shop to your list.
Happy holidays from the Lake Martin Team! We hope your season is filled with peace, love, joy, and many blessings.
