For us at the Bluff, gift-giving is nothing short of an art form. Selecting the perfect gift does more than check a name off a list—it colorfully expresses how we feel about those who make our spirits bright and just how well we really know them. The characters in our lives are not mass-produced and don’t belong in any one-size-fits-all box, so the gifts we give them should be equally as wild, wonder-filled, and full of warmth. We’ve curated our 2018 Holiday Gift Guide to reflect the passions, pastimes, and endearing peculiarities that make our loved ones so lovable. Full of items with uncommon intrigue made by some of our favorite Southern makers and new artists to watch, this is a list of gifts to remember for the characters you’ll never forget.
