Newport Holiday Gift Guide 2019

by Candice Sandman

Looking for a holiday gift or even a host/hostess gift with nautical flair? We rounded up some pretty amazing gifts with a nod to Newport that anyone would love! The gifts range in price and most can be sourced locally. If you see something you love, head out this weekend to “shop small” and support local businesses on small business Saturday! There is truly something for everyone: family, friends, teachers, babysitters- just a little something to let them know you are thinking of them this holiday season!

  1. City Map 21oz. Insulated Hydration Bottle I love this gift. Most people use water bottles and this one keep your drinks hot or cold! The best part is that you can add custom text and personalize this bottle with a name or a favorite memory – not from Newport, not to worry they are able to add most cities/towns.
  2. Lat & Lo Bar Necklace Inscribed with the latitude & longitude coordinates of your most beloved place…maybe 41.4901° N, 71.3128° W or maybe another amazing location this is customizable and comes in sterling silver, gold or rose gold.
  3. Anchor Toffee A great host/hostess gift or a gift for anyone with a sweet tooth. These delicious treats are from the flagship store in Bowen’s Wharf. The Almond Butter Toffee is their signature, however they have nut free and dairy free options making it easier to shop for loved ones with dietary restrictions.
  4. Navy Anchor Beverage Bucket Bag Sea Bags hit it out of the park with this bag. It is a tote bag that is also the perfect collapsible cooler with drain holes in the bottom to let the water escape. Love this idea but want a different size/shape bag – head to their shop on Bowen’s Wharf and check them out in person.
  5. REAL FUR Pom Pom Hats This CK Bradley signature Pom Pom hat is a must have, its super warm and super cute. If you haven’t been to their new shop on Bellevue Avenue you need to stop in!
  6. Lemon Butter Hand/Body Lotion I had a hard time selection which item to showcase from Soap & Water. This great shop on Bowen’s Wharf has a little of everything. Their soaps, lotions and fragrances are amazing – and keep an eye out for their ornaments, each year they have something fabulous!
  7. Limited Edition Newport Navy Bracelet Hand crafted in Rhode Island Lemon & Line’s products are quintessential New England. Beautiful and made to last these are great gifts – the bracelets come in a range of prices and styles and won’t break the bank! If you are in town head to their shop on Thames and take a look for yourself!
  8. Newport Map Rocks Glass Newport Historical Society Museum and Shop (located in Long Wharf Mall) has a great little section that showcases everything Newport. I love these glasses, paired with a set of cocktail napkins or a bottle from a local distillery these make a great gift.
  9. Living Newport: Houses, People, Style – by Bettie Bearden Pardee This book has made the list two years in a row. This beautiful book, written by a local celebrates Newport, the properties, the style and the people who live in it. Truly a beautiful book to give and receive!
  10. Anchor Pearlfection Anchors and Pearls, it doesn’t get more Newport! KJP has done it again with this bracelet. To be honest it was hard to pick, I have a few things from their shop on my own wish list this year! Their shop has great gifts for men and women, if you are headed to Bowen’s Wharf you definitely need to stop in!
  11. All Sail Envelope Clutch This customizable clutch from Resails is a fun gift – a name or initials can be added to personalize the gift for your special someone. Want something bigger? Check out their shop in Long Wharf Mall.
  12. Anchored Cocktail Picks My favorite find of the season, these fun cocktail picks are the perfect small gift and would be a great addition to anyones bar. Pick these up at The Newport Mansions Store on Bowen’s Wharf with a set of fun cocktail napkins and you have a great stocking stuffer or host/hostess gift!
  13. Newport RI cufflinks This sweet Etsy find is a great gift for the guy that has everything. At $25 this makes a great gift that doesn’t break the bank – even a great idea for groomsmen.
  14. Anchor Candle This candle smells amazing, imagine summer sea salt scent all year long, heaven! This pick is from the Pink Pineapple, a sweet shop on Lower Thames that has great gifts, clothing and accessories.
  15. Newport Sea Salt This is a product I can’t live without. 100% sea salt, reef to table, family run and owned, best salt I have ever cooked with hands down. Flakey and delicious it will truly elevate your meal! Found at a few shops around town including the Aquidneck Growers Market, Viking Hotel and Newport Historical Society Museum Shop, and Newport Vineyards to name a few.
