You may be thankful for the new iPhone, or your bike that hasn’t been stolen yet, but it’s usually the free things we tend to be the most thankful for. Sure, family and friends are high on the list. But we’ve found a few more free things you can be thankful for this year, like live music, yoga, and new art exhibits.

MONDAY. The Brillers, a local Americana folk quartet, are performing on the deck at the Pour House tonight. It’s a nice setting to enjoy the weather before it takes a turn for the worst again.

TUESDAY. Jewelry is always a smart go-to gift when you’re Holiday shopping. Browse the latest pearl selections at the Mikimoto Trunk Show on at Kiawah Fine Jewelrywhich continues through Wednesday. If you like music of the Meters, see local funky jam band Wadata when they perform at the Recovery Room starting at 9 p.m. Or if you’re in the mood for something unusual, Vive Le Vox, a punky roots and hillbilly trio from Florida, will be performing at The Mill.

WEDNESDAY. Sisters Jordan and Jessica Igoe will perform at Juanita Greenbergs on King Street with their original sound of indie, pop, and Americana.

FRIDAY. Black Friday won’t be easy if you’re still in a food coma, so shed some Thanksgiving pounds with a free yoga class at Holy Cow Yoga Center. Head to the Village Green on Kiawah for the Freshfields Village Holiday Festival, where they’ll have family-friendly activities like Santa visits, train rides, face painting, and live music.

SATURDAY. Small Spaces, an exhibit by assemblage artists Hirona Matsuda and Nina Garner, will open at Greenway Studios. They’ve incorporated vintage and antique items into their collaborative work. At the Barnes and Noble in Mt. Pleasant, Thomas McQueeney will sign copies of his new book, The Rise of Charleston: Conversations with Visionaries, Luminaries, and Emissaries of the Holy City.
