the southern girl's gift guide

Whether you’re a southern girl yourself or searching for a gift for one, this list has got you covered.

Books are always a good idea and two cute options are both from the staff at Garden & Gun. The Southerner’s Cookbook is a book of recipes and stories, from biscuits to more obscure regional specialities. The Southerner’s Handbook is filled with essays on topics from food to fashion to culture, all from G&G writers like Julia Reed and Roy Blount Jr.

A southern girl will always appreciate gifts for the kitchen. Gift her a jar of hot cinnamon peach preserves from Georgia brand Blackberry Patch or a cute magnolia-printed recipe box to store all of her old and new recipe cards.

Some practical, yet cute gift ideas are a set of gardening tools to be used in her kitchen garden or a cute pouch from Draper James. I love the What Would Dolly Do pouch and the Hello, Sugar option. A gift that will surely get a lot of use is a set of personalized notecards to be used for thank-you’s or just a quick hello. Serving both a practical and aesthetic purpose is a sweet Homesick candle with the scent of her home state.

In the fashion department, Cinq a Sept’s cute Bonjour, Y’all tee blends two favorite cultures. In the hot months (which is pretty much every month in the south), we need all the hats we can get. I recommend Southern Tide’s straw hat or this adorable, seersucker ball cap from Anna & Ava.
