    And finally for our last gift guide post…..our Top 5 Savannah gifts to give this Holiday season! Enjoy!

    #5 River Street Sweets’ Pralines

    Made with fresh cream, Georgia pecan halves, butter and sugar, this sweet treat is a Savannah staple! Don’t believe us? Just as for a sample while you’re there. They’re so good, once you try them, you’ll be hooked. Pick up a box (or more!) this holiday season for a friend with a sweet tooth, you’re Great Aunt May, teacher, mailman – whoever! This gift is a sure hit across the board.

    #4 Byrd Cookie Co.’s Benne Wafers

    Known as “the seed of good luck,” benne seeds have been part of Southern recipes for generations. Rich in flavor, Byrd Cookie’s thin, crisp cookies are sweetened with a blend of maple and brown sugar for a true one-of-a-kind taste. It’s safe to say that this 300-year-old recipe is a crowd pleaser.

    #3 Paula Deen’s Original Cookbook from the Paul Deen Store

    The Lady & Sons restaurant has long been a destination for anyone familiar with Paul Deen, her sons, and good, Southern cooking. The Paula Deen Retail Store is located right next door to the restaurant, and houses many products from the Paula Deen line, as well as some of her personal favorites. Not only can you find her original cookbook, you’ll also be able to pick up some helpful kitchen gadgets and goodies while you’re there.

    #2 Savannah Bee Tupelo Honey

    When it comes to honey, Tupelo Honey is the “gold standard” all other honey varieties are measured. White Tupelo Trees bloom for just two weeks every spring in Southeastern swamps. Savannah Bee’s Tupelo Honey has buttery undertones and a mellow, clean-finishing sweetness and compliments a variety of foods.

    #1 Autographed copy of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil available at E. Shaver Booksellers

    It may be years since The Book, as it’s known in Savannah, was published, and even longer since the actual events occurred, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t still talking about it! An autographed copy of the infamous novel is at the top of our Top 5 Gifts list and can only be found at E. Shaver’s.
