(Guests of Beach Properties can also take advantage of restaurant specials!) Dine by the water, chat with locals, and enjoy the seasonal festivities of Hilton Head in winter. 

3. Unique HHI-Made Gifts

Looking for the perfect gift to give friends and family for the holidays? Hilton Head is a great place to start. Locals and visitors alike love gifting authentic Hilton Head sweetgrass baskets during the holiday season. These can be used for functionality or simply for decoration. You might even be tempted to purchase one of these hand-crafted pieces for yourself! Sweetgrass baskets add a touch of style and Hilton Head culture to any home. Visit the Gullah Sweetgrass Gallery to find your own handmade basket. Although Hilton Head doesn’t have an official downtown scene, shopping in Main Street Villiage is ideal if you’re looking for a quaint downtown feel. Explore various locally-owned shops and enjoy the uniquely crafted goods. You are sure to find something that catches your eye!
