With just over two weeks left until the big day, the season for Christmas shopping in Myrtle Beach is upon us.
If you’re at the beach this time of year, there’s no reason not to take advantage of all the awesome retail spots we have to offer, whether it’s the malls, outlets or tons of awesome specialty shops.
But even with all this shopping to choose from, finding the right gift for the guys in your life can be a tough task if you’re not sure where to look. Here’s a look at some of the best shops in Myrtle Beach for men, take a look and see what we to offer the guys on your list:
For the golf lovers
It’s no secret that Myrtle Beach is a golf lover’s paradise, and no place is that more true than at the several huge golf superstores located around the area. Whether you’re looking for new clubs and balls, golf apparel, or great gifts and accessories, you’ll find them at places such as Martin’s PGA Superstore near Broadway at the Beach, Golfsmith Xtreme near Coastal Grand Mall or Golf Dimensions Superstore in North Myrtle Beach. Or if you really want to gain some bonus points, help him get a start on next golf season now, by booking a 2015 Myrtle Beach golf trip here!
For the cave dwellers
If you’ve got a cave dweller on your list — a guy who loves to add to his man cave’s random collection of sports stuff, rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia or historical artifacts — then Broadway at the Beach has several fun gift shops for you. There’s Klig’s Kites, filled with gag gifts and sports memorabilia, The Man Cave Store, chock full of manly memorabilia and even the Vintage House, with a little bit of everything when it comes to old-school and new school gifts.
For the athletic types
For those with an athletic guy — or even just an armchair quarterback — on their list, there’s a double dose of Tanger Outlets shops waiting for you. Both the U.S. 501 and U.S. 17 locations of Tanger Outlets Myrtle Beach house several outlet shops for top sportswear brands that offer great discounts on everything from shoes and clothing to sporting goods and accessories. At the 501 location you’ll find Nike, Columbia, Reebok and Under Armour, while the U.S. 17 location offers brand stores for Adidas, Puma, Reebok and North Face.
For the hard workers
If you’re shopping for a rough-and-tumble, “works with his hands” type of guy or just trying to send a subtle hint to your “weekend warrior” that its time to fix a few things around the house, perhaps you’ll want to check out one of the great tool shops in Myrtle Beach. You can start out by tooling around at Workshop Tools in Myrtle Beach, and then hop across U.S. 501 to the Direct Tools Outlet at Tanger Outlets.
For the geeky guys
If you’re shopping for someone who’s serious about their fantasy, there’s several awesome specialty shops in Myrtle Beach to cater to this crowd. You can stop by Player’s Choice at Myrtle Beach Mall for old-school video games, comic books and novelties, visit the Kryptonite Character Store in Barefoot Landing for all your superhero needs or visit X-Con Comics in downtown Myrtle Beach for great artwork, comics and games. Or if your geek is more “computer nerd” or “pop culture junkie” also check out Apple mecca CityMac at The Market Common or RetroActive, a kitschy nostalgia shop at Broadway at the Beach.
For the beer snobs
There are beer drinkers and then there are beer LOVERS. If you know a guy who never met a type of brew he wouldn’t rty, drives out of his way to pick up that new IPA or spends his weekends holed up in a garage mixing hops then a trip to the Homebrewer’s Panty is a must this holiday season. Although its a bit off the beaten path in downtown Conway (about 15 miles west of Myrtle Beach), this locally-owned shop is a beer lovers dream with everything you need to brew your own beer, plus tons of great gifts, beer-themed treats and more. Or if you’d rather just give your guy a taste of the local flavor you can also stop by Myrtle Beach’s own New South Brewery and fill him up a growler or two of great brew from the beach. We recommend the White Ale.
For the cigar aficiandos
Know a guy who enjoys a good puff or two? Take a trip to one of the several quality Myrtle Beach Cigar Shops. Even if you don’t know your Cohibas from your El Cheapos, you can check out spots like Tinder Box at Broadway at the Beach, East End Cigar Co. in Myrtle Beach or Nick’s Cigar World in North Myrtle Beach, and have an expert help you choose something nice for the smoker in your life. Nick’s even has cigar & wine bar right next door, so if you get worn out from all that shopping feel free to stop for a nice glass of vino to relax.
For the lawn jockeys
Is there someone on your list who’s already counting down the days until spring so he can get back out and start working on his perfect lawn and garden? If so, perhaps a trip to the Hammock Shops Village in Pawleys Island is in order. This quaint shopping center has tons of unique specialty shops with great gifts for the garden including the Audubon Shop And Gallery, Barefoot Elegance and the Original Pawleys Island Hammock Shop — home of the world-famous Pawleys rope hammocks.
For the biker boys
For guys who like to hit the open road on their bike and feel the wind blowing through their hair, Myrtle Beach Harley-Davidson offers plenty of ways to get your hands on some great biker gear. In addition to the main shop, just south of Myrtle Beach on Kings Highway, H-D has gift shop locations at Tanger Outlets, Broadway at the Beach and another full service location Harley Shop at the Beach, located on U.S. 17 just north of Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach. Not a Harley guy? That’s alright. You can still find great biker gifts at Jamin’ Leather off of U.S. 17 Bypass in Myrtle Beach or at Redline Powersports off of U.S. 501.
For the guys who have eveyrthing
They always say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and never is this more true than during the holidays. No matter what type of guy you’re shopping for there’s few that wouldn’t appreciate something tasty in their stocking. Whether it’s a bottle of spicy hot sauce from Broadway at the Beach’s Pepper Palace, a bottle of sweet Muscadine wine from one of the area’s great wineries or a savory treat from The Olive Oil Shoppe at Barefoot Landing, you can’t go wrong with food and drink as a gift.
