Our Five Faves

Best Triangle shops for last-minute gifts

Posted December 22, 2014

A look at some of the gifts available at Deco in Raleigh.

We are a week away from Christmas. If you are still shopping, check out our list for the best places to grab those last minute gifts.

A Southern Season (Chapel Hill) - From cooking classes to locally made cheeses and desserts, this place is foodie heaven! They have great pre-made baskets featuring North Carolina products or just make your own basket. Head to the main store in Chapel Hill, or, if you are just in the market for a gift basket hit their pop-up location in Cameron Village. 

Nofo at the Pig (Raleigh) - Lots of fun and unique gifts at this shop and restaurant located near Hayes Barton Cafe. I love their painted plates and candy/sweets bar! They also have some fun novelty gifts.

The Cotton Company (Wake Forest) - Handmade crafts, jewelry and more are sold at this collection of shops in downtown Wake Forest. And make sure to drop by the back of the store where local artwork is sold.

Deco (Raleigh) - With more than 60 local artisans' work on display, this is a great place to shop for home decor, accessories, games, toys and just about everything else! They are located on Hargett Street.

Whisk (Cary) - This kitchen store has everything from cookware to localized coasters. You can even attend cooking classes here. It is the perfect place to grab a gift card. If you are trying to find the right gift, ask the very knowledgeable staff for some advice. The store always has something new!
