Flamingo Magazine is always rounding up the best of Florida. This gift guide is no exception. Impress everyone on your Christmas list with dope gifts unique to Northeast Florida. Love local, y'all.
For the free spirit
What do you get for the person who is always off on an adventure in Iceland or the Caribbean? Case and Drift's beautifully made Turkish towels make dope travel companions. They can be worn as a shawl, sarong, blanket on freezing flights and more. You can find them locally at Sailors Siren in Jax Beach.
For the outdoorsy type
Invented in St. Augustine, these durable, hands-free coolers can go with you from fishing trips to tailgates to boozy hiking trips. Ya girl can vouch for the hiking. I don't do nature without beer in my cute lil sea foam colored IceMule. The Classic has an inflatable air chamber built in so it can float along while you kayak the Intracoastal.
For the coffee addict
Bold Bean has been a Jax staple for years. On the days you can't swing by for their perfect pour over, make the (almost) perfect cup at home with the Bold Bean Barista Package. It comes with fresh-rasoted beans, SIC Cup's insulates tumbler and the cafe equipment you'll need from adjustable grinders to digital scales. This is also a great gift for a loved one who just moved and could use a cup of Jacksonville's best when they get homesick.
starting at $420
For the art lover
Jax Beach artist Claire Devoe creates whimsical designs through photography collages and paint then transfers them to fabric to create one-of-a-kind bags. This The Time of the End day bag is just the right size to hold your makeup touchup necessities or emergency chocolate. Never leave home without emergency chocolate.
For the foodie
This could technically be a gift for them AND you. A true foodie might thank you for this one by making you a tasty meal. You know a farm is legit when Jax restaurants create menus using Congare and Penn ingredients. The Fit Foodie Gift includes jupiter brown rice, seasonal shrub (AMAZING for cocktails), purple rice and pecan oil.
