So one of the things I absolutely love about my job is my opportunity to gift. It seems I am constantly having to create hotel gift drops (a little goodie bag/box a guest receives upon arrival at their hotel) or client gifts. For me, this is super duper fun and I try to put a lot of thought into the whole experience - branding, quality, and messaging. Since Atlanta is the flagship location for Teknion's southeast region, I try to really lean into that spirit (our natural hospitality and charm) and intentionally use products made below the Mason-Dixon line for my gifting. In my quest for amazing southern products I have stumbled across some gems I just have to share. They are great gift ideas for anyone you want to treat to some southern hospitality.
I use this stuff ALL THE TIME because it is beautifully packaged in just the right quantity (2 oz bag) and at just the right price!
Bang Candy Co.
Really stellar branding. They sell a few other candies, but I have only ordered the marshmallows, mostly because I just love opening these little cute boxes!
Also beautifully packaged and spongey, fluffy, goodness.
Five Points Baking Co. cheese straws
Doux South canned goods
A southern delicacy in a variety of flavors. These pecan bags are so cute I wanna use 'em as a backpack! Ha!
Haypenny smores kit
Ready-to-make smores. Need I say more?
G Momma's cookies
Piper & Leaf tea
Savannah Bee honey
Going to the Savannah Bee Company flagship store is a must-do anytime we are in Savannah. We simply love their products and taste-testing different honey flavors! I actually buy their honey straws for quick, mess-less honey that's easy to add to tea and doesn't result in a super sticky container. #aintnobodygottimefordat
I am always on the hunt for more gourmet products made by talented southerners, so if you know of any good ones, send them my way!
