Finding the perfect holiday gift can be a challenging task, especially if you’re searching in soul-sucking malls and shopping plazas. Add some joy to your holiday shopping by buying one-of-a-kind Christmas presents on Martha’s Vineyard. While many shops on the island close during the shoulder season, you can find gifts for everyone on your list at one of the many craft fairs, gift sales and festivals during the holiday season. This Martha’s Vineyard holiday shopping guide will help you find gifts for the whole family, and maybe even a little something for yourself.
Holiday Shopping Guide for Martha’s Vineyard
Featherstone Center for the Arts Holiday Gift Show
There’s nothing more special than a handmade gift from the island. Featherstone Center for the Arts hosts their annual holiday gifts show in the month leading up to Christmas. Stop by and browse through gifts galore, from jewelry and purses to pottery and paintings. You can take pride in knowing that whatever you purchase, it will be one of a kind. In the spirit of the holidays, all sales benefits from the gift show will go towards local artists and the Featherstone Center to help keep art alive on the island.
Oak Bluffs Open Market
While Oak Bluffs Open Market is open through the summer and fall, this Martha’s Vineyard staple moves inside for the holiday season. With two markets held, one at the end of November and another in early December, the Oak Bluffs Open Market is ready to meet all your holiday shopping needs. And because most of Oak Bluffs regular vendors return for the indoor market, it’s easy to plan your shopping trip.
