Here’s your chance to host the holiday event people talk about all year long. You and your guests are invited to gather between our shelves after hours, to treat yourselves to Camilla Kitchen goodies, letting the holiday spirit flow with our curated selection of wine and beer, and enjoy having the store to yourselves. Enjoy time with your favorite people in one of your favorite places, and knock out your holiday shopping. It’s all the things you want in a party, just not at your house and with about 500 more books.

On the Wish List

lunch & lit season pass

The perfect gift for the Lunch & Lit regular, this season pass includes six to twelve event tickets and an M.Judson Tote Bag!

a book subscription

All year long, we offer a book subscription service called Letterbox, but during the holidays, it's especially popular. Through Letterbox, we help you gift books a little differently.  Choose from themed book subscriptions–think Beach Read, Fantasy, Crime, etc.– or a personalized option called "My Letterbox", which is curated to individual interests and reading likes. The Letterbox book subscription package comes with an amazing book, a personalized note explaining why we chose that book, and a Camilla Goods bookmark. When you purchase My Letterbox, we’ll immediately send a questionnaire that will help us make a personal selection.  Whatever package you choose, you can scale your subscription service to the time frame that fits your desires and budget. 

a gift card

What a classic choice! Our gift cards are good at both M.Judson and Camilla Kitchen, so it's a well-rounded gift. Please see a bookseller in-store to request one. Unfortunately, our gift cards do not work on online purchases, nor can you purchase one online. If you would still like to request one, you may do so through our contact form here.

page pairings season pass

In the heart of Greenville...

We’ve enjoyed having the official City of Greenville Christmas tree in front of our store since 2019. The lighting of this incredibly big tree is one of our favorite nights of the holiday season in Greenville! This free city event includes food trucks and vendors, live music, and a special visit from Santa Claus. As for us, we’ll be open for business, as well as sporting a new Hot Chocolate Cart on the front steps. Come enjoy some Hot Chocolate, cookies, (even wine) on our patio during this kick-off event! The official tree lighting will take place between 6:15 and 6:30 PM.

For more than 75 years, the parade has signaled the start of the Christmas season in Greenville. Each year the parade attracts thousands of visitors downtown to view the holiday floats and activities. We’ll have our new Hot Chocolate Cart out on the front steps by the Christmas tree for you to enjoy. You don’t want to miss this!

This holiday season, Greenville is holding its Inaugural Greenville Gingerbread House Exhibit. Participating restaurants and chefs will be creating “Greenville-Inspired Edible Creations” which will be on display for public viewing at the Residence Inn/Springhill Suites starting December 1st. On Christmas Eve, the winners of the Media’s Choice Award and People’s Choice Award will be announced. 

We are so excited that Camilla Kitchen will be participating! Make sure that you stop by to view the Gingerbread creations (we’ve got quite the design) in the month of December and vote for your favorite!

Glide your way into the holiday season at United Community Bank Ice on Main. Greenville’s only outdoor ice rink is a favorite winter tradition, with a variety of promotions and special events scheduled throughout the season. And it’s just down the street from M. Judson! Stop by for a Hot Chocolate from our Cart on Saturdays, or warm up before and after your skating between our shelves.
