Each month, Southern Living will feature a staff member who'll share his or her favorite Southern made products of the moment.


Since it's Christmas time, and Abbi is Southern Living's very own Christmas fanatic, here are some of her top five Southern-made picks for the season.

Via Walker Creek Confections

Almond Toffee; Walker Creek Candy Company from Alexandria, TN: "This almond toffee has a sweet crunch and the perfect amount of creamy chocolate, making it an easy hostess gift."

Via Polish & Co.

Sweet Caroline Nail Polish; Polish & Co. from Greensboro, NC: "I don't usually wear seasonally-appropriate colors, so this bright robin's-egg-blue makes sense on my nails year-round – including December."

Via Nashville Jam Co.

Apple Bourbon Jam; The Nashville Jam Co. from Nashville, TN: "This cinnamon-spiced jam tastes like an upscale version of apple butter, and would make a great holiday appetizer when paired with goat cheese and crackers."

Via Thistle Farms

Holiday Room Spray in Balsam Fir;Thistle Farms from Nashville, TN: "A quick spray fills the room with fresh-picked fir scent, and the proceeds go to a great cause."

Via Southern Firefly Candle Co.

Kentucky Vanilla Bourbon Candle; Southern Firefly Candle Co. from Brentwood, TN: "This candle fills the room within minutes with a good, old-fashioned-bourbon-meets-vanilla scent."
