What could be better? So if you’re looking for some last minute gift solutions – see below for all their ideas with their comments on each:
So in our opinion, you really can’t go wrong with any of these gift ideas!! Happy shopping!
Not only does Fritz Orr create the most beautifully handcrafted wooden canoe and stand-up paddles you’ve ever seen, but he also gives a percentage of his sales back to the camps he loves so dearly – Camp High Rocks for boys and Camp Merrie-Woode for girls. This is one of the many reasons we love him.
Fritz Orr, III – famed wood craftsman on Taigan who even won Garden & Gun Magazine’s “Made in the South” awards – is donating 50% of the proceeds from all sales of his “High Rocks Paddle” and “Merrie-Woode Captain’s Paddle” to each camp’s respective Campership Funds. These funds give more children the opportunity to experience the joy and companionship of summer camp – one thing Fritz is extremely passionate about.
His paddles are functional works of art well suited at home on display as well as on the river, and of course they make an amazing gift for your outdoorsy loved one. Purchasing a paddle means you’re helping a deserving young girl or boy who would not otherwise be able to experience the joy of these two camps.
So how can you help and be a part of this effort? Purchase either the “High Rocks Paddle” or the “Merrie-Woode Captain’s Paddle” in his shop on Taigan. This is the perfect gift for your family member or friend and also gives back to a great cause.

We’re excited to introduce FOSTER’S MARKET!
Foster’s Market is a gourmet food market and cafe, focusing on scratch made Southern Cuisine. The awesome food, the superior service, the staff, the fun and the unexpected are what makes the Foster’s experience a unique and rewarding one.
Why we chose Foster’s Market:
Sara Foster and her husband, Peter Sellers, moved to Durham, North Carolina and opened Foster’s Market in 1990, introducing great seasonal prepared foods to eat in or take out, specialty grocery items, locally roasted coffee and select wines. Foster’s immediately became a wonderful gathering spot for Durham residents and Duke University students, professors and employees. Over the years Foster’s Market has won many awards from “Small Business of the Year” to “Best Lunch Spot in the Triangle.” Sara also received the award for “2010 Restaurateur of the Year” from the North Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association. We’re thrilled to have Sara’s signature items and cookbooks on Taigan!

We’re thrilled to introduce MËNAJI MEN’S SKINCARE!
Mënaji products were formulated with the expertise of Michele Probst and a team of dermatologists and chemists to focus on and enhance the natural healing properties of men’s skin. “Healthy skin looks best,” Probst says. “So, put your best looking face forward with Mënaji Skincare’s all natural, undetectable products.” The face is the first thing you look at, so take it seriously.
Why we chose Mënaji Skincare:
Michele Probst is a beauty expert and professional makeup artist with a celebrity clientele. After several years of working on male clients, Michele was encouraged to create a line of men’s skincare and grooming products as they continued to ask for an easy, at home regimen. With this, Michele began developing products geared specifically towards men to cover up blemishes, dark circles, or scratches that are undetectable and easy to use. Along with her concealing products, Michele began to focus on healthy skincare products. Thus, Mënaji Skincare was born.
