5 of the Best North Carolina Christmas Gifts
1. Give the Gift of Travel
Sometimes, the best gift is an experience. There’s no better experience than a few days in the mountains of North Carolina! As soon as you step foot onto the parking lot at Orchard Inn, you immediately feel refreshed and rejuvenated. When you give the gift of travel, you’re opening the door for the recipient to have experiences they won’t find anywhere else. We recommend a gift certificate to Orchard Inn so they can choose which dates they would like to stay, but you can also book a stay as a surprise for your sweetheart.
2. A Massage in the Mountains
The hustle and bustle of everyday life can be stressful, and many of us don’t do nearly enough to help deal with the stress. A spa treatment in the mountains is an incredible gift! The Spa at Orchard Inn has gorgeous mountain views and a calming atmosphere. Our gift certificates can go toward spa treatments, and the recipient will love knowing that they have a relaxing spa day in their future.
3. A Farm-To-Table Dinner
How many people treat themselves to a nice dinner as often as they should? Our gift certificates can be used at our restaurant, Newman’s. Newman’s Restaurant is known for its farm-to-table cuisine that specializes in fresh, local ingredients. Our dinners include hors d’oeuvres and multiple courses. This is the perfect gift for your sweetheart, a family member that deserves a night out, or even your boss!
4. Some Local Wine
There’s something so much more special about buying local. Anyone can stroll through a store and pick out a bottle of wine, but purchasing a bottle or two from a local Western North Carolina winery takes some thought. If you’re in the area, you can always pick up some of your favorite bottles. Otherwise, many of the wineries will ship wine to you or the recipient of the gift! Parker-Binns Vineyard is always a great choice because they are known for delicious, innovative wines that are created from fruit grown right at their vineyard in Mill Spring, North Carolina.
5. Tickets to a Show
There are tons of venues in North Carolina, and the Flat Rock Playhouse is one of the most historic. Not only is it the State Theatre of North Carolina, it’s also just 20 minutes away from Orchard Inn! Tickets to an upcoming show make an excellent gift– it gives the recipient something to look forward to.
