Christmas is just a few days away, have you finished your shopping? Some people start all the way back in October, while others prefer to let the panic propel them to the store at the very last minute. We’re not here to shame your holiday shopping habits. We’re here to help. If you’ve found yourself short of a few presents in the final hours before Santa’s supposed to make his jolly appearance, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few of the best Hilton Head shopping spots for last-minute Christmas gifts.

Hilton Head Tanger Outlets

They say the only things certain are death and taxes, but we have to add Tanger Outlets to that list as well. You can find them in most tourist locales, and Hilton Head is no exception. There’s no better way to start off this list than with a Hilton Head shopping spot where you can find more than 100 stores in one place. From Adidas for shoes to Zales for diamonds, you’ll find everything you could ever want right here.

Shelter Cove Towne Centre

Another great place to find a bunch of shops in one spot is at the Shelter Cove Towne Centre. At Tanger Outlets, you’ll usually find mainstream brands, but here you get niche local shops you won’t find everywhere else like ArtWare and Coastal Bliss. Plus, there are several on-site restaurants you can stop in for a bite when you get hungry!

Main Street Village

If you want to spend a day taking a stroll down “main street” while popping in and out of shops or grabbing a gift certificate at a salon for a loved one big on self-care, the Main Street Village is what you’re looking for. This Hilton Head shopping spot also has several dining options to choose from once you work up an appetite from all your holiday spending.

Village at Wexford

Another fantastic holiday shopping spot in Hilton Head is found in the Village at Wexford. They have an eclectic mix of retailers that take the art of shopping to a new level. From specialty rugs to needlepoint and beyond, whatever you’re looking for this Christmas, you’ll find it here. Not to mention the restaurants kicking out mouthwatering scents to lure you in once you’ve worked up an appetite!

Harbour Town

Last but not least is Harbour Town, with its locally owned boutiques and gift shops, award-winning restaurants, and the iconic lighthouse you can tour for some of the island’s best views. You will find everything from clothing to fresh seafood here, so even if it’s the only place you go for your last-minute holiday shopping, you’re good to go!



Whether you’re a tourist in Hilton Head for December or a year-round resident, shopping for the holidays is always stressful. We took a bit of that stress out of the equation with these shopping spots so hopefully, you can grab those last-minute presents before Christmas Eve!
