Holiday Gift GuideSHOPPING LOCAL

Here’s a selection of amazingly cool, Space Coast gift selections we wanted to showcase for your holiday consideration.

Whether you are searching for a unique handmade item, a gift for those who seek adventure, something antique or coastal themed, gift certificates for dining out, a one-of-a-kind piece of art or to purchase a gift with the goal of donating to a favorite charity, the options are endless on the Space Coast.


No matter what the décor or style of a kitchen, unique and pretty stoneware can add beauty and functionality to anyone’s kitchen cupboard. Best of all, hand-made, one-of-a-kind pieces can be mixed and matched with other dinnerware, to complement them or used individually. 

Whether a set of coffee mugs, a serving pitcher, exquisite serving or soup bowls, or even a handy spoon rest, all of Melbourne master potter Deborah Speer’s handmade stoneware is lead free, food safe, dishwasher and microwave safe.

For a gift that is practical, useful, and extremely functional, yet unique and unlike any other, you can purchase the pottery via eBay, or it can be purchased at the Breakers Surf Art Gallery in Satellite Beach.
