Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane-wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of fashion jewelry, home décor, and gifts at The White Butterfly in Jackson.
Alluring patrons with a magenta storefront and flora-adorned porch, The White Butterfly is stocked with a continuously updated inventory of elegant and eclectic gifts. Reaffirm bonds by draping a friend's front in an 18-inch Essence of Life necklace ($18), which comes with uplifting charms that read, "Faith," "Love," and "Failure." Outfit a naked wrist in the rhinestone radiance of the gold-buckle fashion bracelet ($42) or accent a bare shoulder with a brightly patterned purse ($40+). Patrons can snag a pair of airy SwitchFlops ($36+) to allow breezy zephyrs to whisk away lint tumbleweeds. After vivifying epidermal landscapes with the lavender auras of Crabtree & Evelyn hand-therapy lotion ($18), mobile makeup artists can primp in the reflection of a jewel-encrusted, butterfly-shaped compact mirror ($29).
The White Butterfly's multifarious selection of home décor includes picture frames, decorative plates, and whimsical figurines ($20+). Bridgewater candles ($13–$25) freshen domicile air for visits from foreign exchange students, in-laws, and in-laws posing as foreign exchange students to test your hospitability.
