The Best Christmas Shops at the Beach

Drawing names for a holiday gift exchange?

Or do you have an extensive list to conquer? A gift from Myrtle Beach is a great answer to both. And there are a few Christmas shops you should visit on your winter trip.

They’re also great for items to give that Grand Strand touch to your holiday decor. Ready to shop?

Tips for Holiday Shopping

Most of us either rush out on Black Friday or wait until Christmas Eve is near. Here’s advice for a better way to handle the holiday.

  1. Use cash or debit

How do lighter post-holiday bills sound? Dividing cash into envelopes for each recipient to stick to your budget. Pay off credit cards as quickly as you can.

  1. Make a list

Make it easy on yourself, and do like Ol’ Saint Nick. Check it twice! A list will help you keep track of who is done and who is left — and where to go next.

  1. Have a plan

Look at who you’re buying for. Are there stores you could shop for more than one in? Plan your stops, first to last. It’ll keep you from running in circles.

5 Christmas Shops on the Grand Strand

1. Christmas Mouse

It’s impossible to overlook the season’s magic when you shop at any of the three Christmas Mouse locations. If you’re looking for something Christmas — or other holidays, for that matter — this store has it. It’s a great store with a massive assortment of gifts at reasonable prices.

TRY THIS: Check out their line of beach-inspired ornaments. We love the driftwood crabs and one with a Santa and a moose decorating a lighthouse.

2. Christmas at the Beach

You’re guaranteed to take an armful to the checkout counter at Christmas at the Beach. Find tons of beautiful ornaments, and other holiday knick-knacks in this amazing shop. They carry all things Christmas, in a vast selection. The vibe and music contribute to a festive atmosphere.

TRY THIS: Visit other shops in Broadway at the Beach while you’re there. Hit Crocs for comfy shoes, and Cariloha, which specializes in bamboo items.

3. The Dickens Christmas Show and Festival: Nov. 10-13

There’s a lot of pride that goes into putting on this annual shopping experience. And happy people make a trip each year for the Dickens Christmas Show and Festival. There are many vendors with a Victorian marketplace theme and period clothing. The kids will love it, too. 

TRY THIS: This event features several festivals, from which sales benefit local charities. Check out festivals of trees, tables, wreaths, and more.

4. Carolina Pottery

It’s a shopping attraction year-round. Carolina Pottery is also an excellent spot for Christmas. Located in Tanger Outlets in Carolina Forest, they carry everything. Visitors come back each time they visit the Grand Strand because new items arrive all the time. Come see and feel the items you’ll buy.

TRY THIS: Think outside of beach and holiday themes. There are so many gift ideas here. It’s 50,000 square feet of home goods, seasonal items, and more.
