In addition to name-brand apparel and jewelry, Bo-Tiki carries local art as well as gifts perfect for bestowing upon seagulls after trading life stories on the beach.

The experienced staff at Gulfport Florist artfully handcrafts fresh flowers into themed or custom arrangements to suit any occasion. Winter-themed designs include the two-taper centerpiece: a low bowl filled with two red candles, red carnations and roses, and fragrant pine ($44.95), ideal for dressing up dinner tables or vacation campsites. Shoppers can welcome a newborn boy or girl into the world with a dainty white basket of daisies and yellow or pink roses ($45.95). The red roses and stargazer lilies of the Love and Romance bouquet commingle in a white ceramic vase adorned with a heart ($59.95) to create a sweeter Valentine's Day surprise than a backpack filled with moistened Jolly Ranchers. Patrons can pick up bunches of blooms in the store or have them delivered for an additional fee ($8 Monday–Saturday).
Lace tablecloths, decorative flowers, and china cabinets filled with ornate teacups and saucers lend A Corner Of England the ambience of a vintage parlor. In these whimsical digs, Danielle Bruning and her mother, Julie Hicks, brew certified organic tea leaves harvested from two century-old gardens in Assam, India. The women pour fragrant brews of black, green, and antioxidant-loaded white tea into teacups, along with concoctions of their own devising that they flavor onsite. Their Green Tea Delight blend, for example, marries the classic potable with chamomile, mint, ginger, and fruit peel.
During the bistro’s signature high tea, guests snack on housemade scones and cakes or savory bites of sausage rolls, quiche, and croissant sandwiches. Parents can stop in with children for a kid-friendly tea experience as tykes dress up in faux-fancy hats and gloves while sipping from cupfuls of a juice-tea blend. Quenched cross-cultural caperers can relive their high-tea hijinks or recreate the boston tea party in the neighbor’s pool with bags of dry tea and teacups, available for purchase.
Greenpiece Collectables' owner, Tina McIntosh, goes to great lengths to forge friendships with members of the community visiting her sunny storefront by assembling a spread of fresh-baked bread, coffee, and tea every morning for passersby to take delight in. The shop's friendly staff members––many doubling as working artists––guide treasure hunters through an ever-changing trove of new and vintage wares and even accept requests to track down particular antique heirlooms or long-lost left socks. In the evenings, Tina transforms her shop into an event space for public soirees, including a weekly Girls Night Out.
Though most vintners have made their wines from grapes, the Shook family turned their focus to other fruits. Starting in 1991, they began fermenting batches of juice from mangoes, red raspberries, limes, and oranges. In 1997, they opened their farm winery—a small barn-shaped building shaded by trees—where licensed winemakers and distributors ferment and bottle dozens of varieties of exotic wines stamped with the Sunshine Tree, the Florida Department of Citrus's mark of quality. Their eclectic selection encompasses citrus, tropical-fruit, berry, stone-fruit, and vegetable wines, each made entirely from the juice indicated on the label. The winery also makes and distributes wine-smoothie mixes and wine pouches, sherries, ports, and champagnes.
