Everyone loves to find the best holiday gifts for their loved ones… especially at a great price! Styleblueprint.com – a Nashville based lifestyle publication (with impeccable taste) recently featured several of our great artisans in a story about the top 50 gifts of 2013 that are all under $50 and Southern foodie gifts. What could be better? So if you’re looking for some last minute gift solutions – see below for all their ideas with their comments on each:


“Nye’s Cream Sandwiches is located in Wilmington, NC, and was a Martha Stewart American Made Audience Choice Award nominee. We’ve sampled these and they are DIVINE. Order the following sample pack from Taigan: Pumpkin Cranberry Spice, Apple Pie and Caramel Latte and Blackberry Cobbler”



“For those who understand that a “Yes, Ma’am” and “No, Sir” are words we hand down from generation to generation, this poster is perfect. Warning: Mother-In-Laws: DO NOT SEND TO YOUR DAUGHTER IN LAW. (She will talk about you for decades if you do.) But, otherwise, this is a fun gift for a sibling, especially one who has left the South and misses it!”



“We first found out about Schermer Pecans through The Southern C Summit. The gals that run this know their Southern food and they oohed and aahed over this product, with good reason. Have your gift be likewise received! $44 for a set of three.”


grey salt

“The grey color indicates a high content of minerals and nutrients (not found in the iodized salt we all grew up with). This salt is collected using wooden rakes, ensuring that no metal ever touches it. At just $12, this salt makes a great gift.”


nugget hoops

“These earrings are a great take on the traditional hoop. Seriously, we all are kinda hoping they end up in our own stockings. Teeny-tiny metallic beads are threaded onto the fine hoops, creating these light earrings that you, or your gift recipient, will reach for time and time again. Designer: FriedaSophie”


fudge 2

“Made in small batches in Montogomery, Texas, this fudge is loaded with goodness: ‘there’s more crunchy, nutty, coconutty per square inch than a Texas mile. That’s OUR fudge factor – where small isn’t really small at all. One taste and you’ll know, we’re not messin’ around.’ Intrigued? Us, too.”


cream cheese

“Made in Thomasville, GA, by Sweet Grass Dairy, this cheese has converts to GA cheese throughout more than the Southern region; the accolades pour in from all over. Send some of this cheese to your own cheese monger and then send some to yourself as well.”


ham biscuits

“We thought the price was too high until we broke down and bought some. Damn, these are good. I mean, slap your mama, open the front door and scream, bang on a pot GOOD.”


So in our opinion, you really can’t go wrong with any of these gift ideas!! Happy shopping!
