Firefly Essentials delivers moisturizing products straight to your home; these products battle the itchy, red, and uncomfortable skin brought on by dry air and wintry weather. More than 25 varieties of handmade soaps are available—including bar blends ($4.50 per bar) such as coconut breeze, lemongrass, and cucumbery melon—that transform the body into a tasty treat for nocturnal, closet-dwelling trolls. Goat-milk-based body lotion will ensure sleek skin by wicking away spilled nacho cheese, while beeswax lip balms formulated with cocoa butter, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, and tea-tree oil will soothe the mouth pillows after a season of chappage. Otherwise, opt for one of Firefly's quick gift sets, like a four-pack of natural soaps tied in raffia ribbon ($16).
Behind Bear Creek Gardens, a stone path leads to the bright-red door of a cabin with quaint white shutters. Inside, owner Frannie Daughrity stocks the shelves of her boutique with unique gifts and French-inspired home décor infused with country charm. She spends hours curating her collection, filling the cozy shop with items that are handcrafted, locally made, or too unique to pass up. If you ask, Frannie can tell you the story behind many of her items—such as the beeswax candles handcrafted by a former pro-skateboarder and her husband, who dropped out of their fast-paced lives to start making candles in a 1970s Winnebago.
The staff at Kaitlyn’s Loft bedecks their storefront and virtual shelves with colorful, inimitable gift items designed by name-brand manufacturers and personalized by the shop’s on-site engravers and monogrammers. The Simply Violet tote by Vera Bradley brandishes paisley patterns and ample storage space for well-written novels and unwritten autobiographies ($34.50), and the grapefruit body butter by Archipelago grants skin the gift of softness ($30). Toss around fresh greens with the handmade Soho salad servers ($40), or adorn fashion-forward appendages with glistening beads, charms, and pendants by Chamilia ($20+). The baseball bib shields wearers from spaghetti spills and foul balls, and the rubber duck hand wash swathes mitten fillers in soap and suds.
Nestled into the countryside around the basin of the Appalachian mountains, the Blackberry Ridge Golf Club's championship course undulates through hills, rivers, and dense forest. Despite its changes in elevation, the Club prides itself on maintaining speedy greens and a few less-than-forgiving fairways, as showcased on the signature 600-yard par 5. Though the course displays few hazards aside from the natural bodies of water and sentient trees that offer caddy tips on multiple holes, the subtle gradients of the terrain offer an entirely different set of challenges. Off the course, a driving range provides golfers with a chance to practice their skills, and the clubhouse features a snack bar with homemade barbecue sandwiches, ice cold beers, and other snacks.
