Step aside, Santa. The elves at Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches have rounded up some of our favorite gift ideas this season in our handy 2021 Holiday Gift Guide. Check everyone off your list with some of these great presents, below.
The Royal Swim at Marineland Dolphin Adventure
We give this gift two fins up! Marineland Dolphin Adventure’s Royal Swim is full of thrills—dolphins even propel participants through the water by pushing against the soles of their feet. Other interactive activities include a dorsal tow, handshake, caresses, and more.
Horseback Ride on the Beach with Equestrian Adventures of Florida
This year, it’s all about dashing through the sand. Gift your adventure seeker a bucket-list present—a horseback ride on the beach with Equestrian Adventures of Florida. They’ll love trotting down our beautiful cinnamon-colored sand atop one of these beautiful, gentle creatures.
A Unique Piece from Gallery of Local Art
One-of-a-kind is the way to go for the art enthusiast on your list. Discover a wide selection of art in a variety of mediums at GOLA in Flagler Beach. We love the Soul Signature collection by artist Mimi Eagleton. Her paintings are full of colorful, vibrant swirls and are intended to bring “optimum health and wealth, infinite beauty, love, wisdom, safety, compassion, peace and radiance” to the viewer.
A Class at Down to Earth Pottery
Perfect for all skill levels, the classes and workshops at Down to Earth allow participants to craft their own work of art. From hand-making decorative pumpkins to designing and creating silver jewelry to wheel throwing classes, there’s something for everyone.
A Bottle of Wine from Flagler Beachfront Winery
If you’ve got a vino lover on your list, then a bottle from Flagler Beachfront Winery is a must. Choose from dry reds, whites, mid sweets, and sweet wines—all made right here in Flagler Beach. And if you’re not a grape guru, never fear. Owner Ken Tarsitano has more than 20 years in the wine industry and can help guide your through the selection process.
The Golden Lion Café’s Key Lime Tartar Sauce
A Florida twist on a popular condiment! The Golden Lion’s key lime tartar sauce is zingy and creamy, perfect with fish, shrimp, and chicken. You can purchase it directly from their website or in the restaurant’s gift shop.
A T-shirt and Stickers from Florida Workshop
Got a Flagler Beach fanatic on your hands? Go with a locally made tee and sticker combo from Florida Workshop. There’s several of each to choose from; we like the Enjoy the Ride tee. It pays tribute to the iconic A1A roadway with a drawing of the highway, as well as waves and palm trees, on the back. For stickers, the pier pelican option is super fun and trendy.
Bath and Body Products from A Scent to Remember
Body butters. Sugar scrubs. Lip balms. A Scent to Remember has plenty of products to help your self-care guru relax and unwind. The shop has a Master Aromatherapist who sources essential oils from 17 different farms and distilleries around the world.
A Spa Day at Golden Magnolia Resort
There’s no better present than a little pampering. The Golden Magnolia Spa offers plenty of luxe services: therapeutic full body massages, rejuvenating facials, and relaxing manicures and pedicures. It’s perfect for anyone who needs a little extra peace this holiday season.
With his sharp red suit, it’s obvious Santa knows style. And when it comes to ladies fashions, Coastal Mermaid Boutique does, too. Shop a wide selection of colorful sun hats, blouses, dresses, jewelry and shoes—perfect for the fashionista on your list.
Beautiful baubles are always in season. Add a little sparkle this year with jewelry from Sea Casas. Choose from handmade necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more. Our favorites are the pieces with sea glass—a wonderful nod to vacations in Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches.
Santa’s elves would be impressed! Local craftsman Tom Cornell makes these darling wooden vehicles by hand. Choose from trains, firetrucks, jeeps, police cars, and more. And unlike those mass-produced plastic thingamajigs, these toys are heirloom quality.
Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches is a dog-friendly destination—so you know we couldn’t leave man’s best friend off our Christmas list. At County Road and Company Boutique, you’ll find plenty of gift ideas for your furry sidekick. Shop pet bandanas, food bowls with witty sayings, tags, bag holders, and more. There’s plenty of goodies to get those tails wagging this year.
Sometimes you just need a “wow” gift…and just like Santa, we’ve got it in the bag. Book your special someone a surprise vacation to Palm Coast and the Flagler Beaches. Spend the winter holidays at Hammock Beach Golf Resort and Spa, where you’ll find luxury accommodations, fine dining, and exquisite ocean views. There’s also plenty of seasonal fun: activities in recent years include S’mores and Star Gazing, Movies on the Lawn, Story Time with an Elf, and much more.
