Local Gift Guide 32

Locally Made Gifts for Everyone on Your List

In Asheville, we like to keep things local—and that includes our gifts. Lucky for us, our mountain town harbors a bounty of makers, crafters, artists and chefs stitching and whipping up unique gifts this holiday season. All the gifts in our Local Gift Guide are made right here in Asheville (with a few Carolinian crafters thrown in). You can grab gifts for everyone on your list—from temperamental tykes to cuisine connoisseurs—without a trip to the mall, and support local artisans to boot.  

For the Foodie

Asheville’s cuisine scene is one of the best in the state. Give your favorite foodie a taste of Asheville with one of these unique and flavorful offerings, crafted from local ingredients.

For the Homemaker

If your giftee is more likely to stay home than hit the town, these gifts will help turn their space into the cozy enclave of which they’ve always dreamed. 

For the Wee Ones

When Christmas morning comes, spoil the little ones with locally made gifts with a fun twist that’ll cement your position as the Cool Aunt or Uncle. 

For the Gentleman

Men are notoriously difficult to buy for—but they don’t have to be. Local designers like leathersmiths In Blue Handmade make timeless gifts your man will love. 

For the Local Lady

From Grandma to your sassy bestie, these gifts run the gamut. Asheville’s artists appeal to the young, old, and everything in between with their Christmas gifts for women.
