Holiday shopping for your friends and family can be a difficult task. Especially if you have someone on your list who seemingly already has everything. Luckily, we have so many wonderful boutiques in the Keys that offer an amazing selection of gift items. Below are a few of my favorite finds from around the Keys that would make amazing gifts for the fashionista in your life.
Give the gift of relaxation. Every girl would love to spend a night away while getting pampered with her special someone or her girlfriends. Buy a gift certificate for a spa treatment and a night stay at Hawks Cay on Duck Key. Their Calm Waters Spa offers an abundance of spa services including massage, facials, mani pedis, and hair cut, color and styling. In addition, she’ll be able to enjoy the whirlpool, dry sauna, and eucalyptus steam room before or after her treatments. For room rates and spa services go to HawksCay.com or call 888.395.5539.

In addition, they’re made in the U.S. and are machine washable for easy cleaning and come in a variety of colors and prints perfect for everyone on your list. Go to GalleryMorada.comor call 305.664.3650.
Give the gift of Chocolate. The Key Largo Chocolate Shop located at MM 100 sells the most mouthwatering, handmade truffles that have ever existed, literally. Hand-pick them out at their location or order them online at KeyLargoChocolates.com and have them shipped directly to your friends and family. My favorites… almond toffee, milk chocolate caramels with sea salt and key lime dark chocolate truffles. They also just started selling boxes of 4 truffles that hook onto a wine bottle and would make a wonderful hostess or host gift for that next holiday party you attend. Want to give a more interactive gift? Key Largo Chocolates offers classes for adults and kids on how to make truffles. The adult classes are served with wine and are a great way to celebrate the holidays with your girlfriends. Call 305.453.6613 for more information.
