4 Atlanta Spots for Last Minute Holiday Escapades

By Caroline Perrott & Lauren Finney Harden | December 2, 2020 | Lifestyle

Did you leave it to the last minute? Put these places and things on your December list.


BEAUTY AT YOUR DOOR Aviary Beauty + Wellness recently launched Flight Club boxes. A variety of full- and trial-size products are curated by owner Amy Leavell Bransford, and December’s box includes serums and creams from Luzern and a dimple tumbler from Atlanta-based brand Utility Objects. (Past brands have included Lord Jones, Supergoop and Binchotan.) The box is also loaded with a gratis grab bag of items including sachets, samples and curiosities, perfect for anyone looking to experiment with their beauty and wellness routines. –LFH


A CHRISTMAS VILLAGE Having a case of cabin fever? Head to Buckhead Village. Visit Biltong Bar for holiday treats as the reimagined South African jerky resto trades in its normal decor for tinsel, pine and a good dose of holiday spirit. Or, if shopping sounds like a better prescription for the at-home blues, Alice + Olivia’s Buckhead Village District store is doing a toy drive with Good+Foundation from now until Christmas Eve. Checking a gift off your list and doing good all at once can really put you in the holiday spirit! –CP


SHE IS HERE Atlanta Contemporary celebrates the female perspective with She Is Here, a multigenerational, multicultural and multidisciplinary roster of female artists’ work. The pieces celebrate common themes of identity, femininity, motherhood, body image, aging and reflection. Timed tickets through January 2021, 535 Means St. NW –CP


HAPPY RETURNS It’s a homecoming for Bobo Intriguing Objects, which is now open at The Works—in the very same building from which it used to operate. Owner Mark Sage is opening a retail storefront and will operate his robust trade business from the location as well. Look for his signature “antique Belgian aesthetic brought into the 21st century with a Southern spin,” which includes unique antiques, Bobo’s in-house brand and an additional category of gifts, including an international magazine program; Sage’s own candle, rug and hardwood flooring lines; and unique products found nowhere else in the country, such as limited lines out of Japan. –LFH
