Holiday Gift Guide

Associate Decorating Editor Jennifer Berno shares a sampling of our 2009 holiday gift guide.


[MUSIC] Hi. I'm Jennifer Berno, Associate Decorating Editor at Southern Living Magazine. This year, Southern Living has done your Christmas shopping for you. We've gathered budget conscious gifts for everyone on your list. All made right here in the South. Here's a sampling from our 2009 gift guide, featuring 25 Christmas gifts made by southern hands. Frosted Christmas cookies. Chrissy Schubert, daughter of famous baker Sister Schubert, has gone into the family business, and her meticulously iced cookies baked in Andalusia, Alabama taste just as good as they look. Buy by the dozen for stocking stuffers. [MUSIC] Simply honey,Magnolia Honey, a women run business in Woodville, Mississippi works with a local beekeeper to harvest their light flavored honey which they package with a reusable dipper. These make great gifts for teachers and neighbors. Chain Navy Bag Tag. These sturdy, melamine luggage tags, printed in Thomasville, Georgia, come in 27 patterns and make a bold personal statement for any traveler. Plus some of the proceeds from the sale of these tags go to breast cancer research. So it's a gift that gives back. Sugah candle. Every Southerner responds to this term of endearment. The Sugah floral-scented soy candle by Savannah's Low Country Luxe is lovingly poured and packaged in an organic linen bag with crisp white embroidery. A portion of the proceeds goes to the March of Dimes. [MUSIC] Recycled sweater scarves. Fredericksburg, Virginia artist Joni Ulman Lewis has a knack for reinventing things. Her patchwork style scarves make brilliant new use of old sweaters, and they make great gifts for anyone in your family.
