Holiday gifting season is the Olympics for a #Black Southern Belle. We pride ourselves on giving great gifts and will go to great lengths to find them. And we love nothing more than to off our Southern Pride particularly to our friends and family who may not be as fortunate to be Southern 🙂
I recently went on a tour of Southern Season in Mount Pleasant, SC and it I have quickly added it to the list of one of my favorite stores for gift giving. As a store with truly southern roots and headquarters in North Carolina, they know all about southern gift giving and we are delighted to share some of our store favorites with you. and hopefully make your holiday shopping a little easier. We have provided a list of some of our favorite southern inspired holiday gifts all of which you can get at Southern Season. You can always buy it online but trust you NEED to make a trip to the store and make sure to block off a day!
On my first trip, I picked up a soul food inspired cook book and champagne inspired cocktail napkins and if my husband didn’t come along I would have picked up about 20 more things (he is not southern and believes in something called budgeting…)
We loved hundreds of things but in order for me to get this article published before the 2016 Holiday Season, here are a few of our favorites. These are signed sealed and approved by Black Southern Belle and if you happen to stop by the store make sure to let us know!
Southern Inspired Gifts 2015 Holiday Gift Guide
These gift baskets should be included on the Southern VIP list of gifting. They can be specialized or pre- made and of course my favorite are those inspired by South Carolina 😉
EVERYONE LOVES BISCUITS
Nothing is more southern than a butter milk biscuits. Southern Season can make them for you or you can purchase some artisan products and show off your culinary skills at home. These make perfect gifts for the southern foodie in your life!
BAGS AND ACCESSORIES OH MY!
So maybe you are getting a gift for a non foodie or someone who is not in love with southern food (if that is even possible), we have you covered. Southern Season had a plethora of fashion and accessories to complete your southern styled life and also perfect for gifts!
MORE CANDLES = MORE HAPPINESS
You can never have enough candles. This statement is a fact. Especially if the candle is named after a Southern town. Show your southern pride to your family and friends. They will show off your home town and their home will smell like heaven. Either way you win 🙂
COASTAL SOUTHERN CHINA
These are not your mom’s gold rimmed antique China sets but she will still love them as a gift. Perfect for her to show off to her friends at her next gathering. This gift is sure to please the southern hostess in your life and maybe pick up some of them for yourself (on my list of things to do next).
SOUTHERN INSPIRED READING
Holiday season means time for reflection and a little bit of reading. What better gift to give than a southern inspired book and this one is our favorite 🙂 I am sure you can guess why.0
