This is a great local candy shop that makes its own pralines, taffy, divinity, and other treats. They also sell a wide range of more standard commercial candies but the real treat is, of course, the home-made stuff.
There is a competitor, a very similar shop, called River Street Sweets, which is every bit as good, just in slightly different ways. They are on the same street only a short distance from each other. I suggest trying some candy from each one if you haven't been to them before. Reasonable people can easily differ on which is better and I think they are about equal, since I slightly prefer each one on different things.
What to buy: Their pralines are great, as is their divinity. They make great vanilla taffy and other flavours, too. Try to get fresh taffy! It's incredible when it's just been made.
What to pay: It depends.

Even if you don't like candles, you MUST visit this store. It offers beautiful decorative candles. It smells soooooo good there!
Also, you can watch a candlemaker at work.
What to buy: Candles, of course.
I bought a "pie candle" -- crafted fruits are arranged in the crystal dish and covered by transparent wax. My friends at home thought it was a real pie. They are not stupid, either. It really looks like a pie until you literally stick your nose into it.
Many craft stores are offering pie candles. This store offers truly realistic "pies."

The Oglethorpe mall and another shopping area out that way just aren't as good as they could be. If you are looking for something that you can usually find at a mall, perhaps you could go here, but I would try the downtown shops first. They are more fun and it's always good to support local merchants
What to buy: There is a great place on River Street where you can watch people make incredible candles. Also, I believe it's called the Savannah Candy Kitchen also on River Street...they have wonderful things to choose from.
What to pay: less than you would in most major cities

The largest shopping centre in Savannah and, I daresay, between Charleston, SC and Jacksonville, FL. Every one of the abovementioned categories rents space by the month at Oglethorpe Mall.
What to buy: Of course you can get anything under the sun here, but I would concentrate on buying uniquely Southern things (cookbooks, postcards, etc.), especially if you're from out of the area.
What to pay: It depends on what you're looking for. If it's not too terribly upscale, not too many U.S. dollars will leave your wallet.
