Georgia is, in my opinion, one of the more beautiful states in the wonderous nation of the United States. From lush green fields to red clay surfaces, rolling hills, and a whole lot of Southern charm; there is not much to not like about Georgia. Savannah specifically is an excellent spot to travel to should you find yourself so inclined. Savannah is located on the coast of Georgia, separated from South Carolina by the actual Savannah River.
Georgia has long been celebrated for its Southern charm and all of the hidden jewels that encompass the city. If you are lucky enough to visit Savannah in the warmer months, you will find yourself immersed in the sights, sounds, and the smell of lush green parks, babbling rivers, and sweet Magnolia blossoms. Travel down the cobblestone streets along River Street, take in the unbelievable historic architecture, and enjoy the history of the world. While visiting Savannah make sure to check out the following souvenirs.
1. Savannah Bee Company Goods
Being that Georgia is such a warm climatic state makes it ideal for bee raising or beekeeping as it is more commonly known. This makes for a market filled with goods from honey to mead and a variety of beauty products. As you may or may not know, honey is extremely good for you and your body as well. One of the more beneficial products that can be found at a number of suppliers around Savannah is a skin treatment. More specifically, the Royal Jelly Night Time Rejuvenation Treatment. It is an excellent way to awaken skin cells and wake up to softer skin.
2. Local Cultural Apparel
With each new region of the world comes a different type of cuisine. Even across the United States of America, you will find many different cultures with a variety of different types of meals to enjoy. In this aspect, Savannah, Georgia is no different. From shrimp and grits to a variety of other seafood favorites, find yourself some local attire that represents your love for these foods. Even if this visit prompts your first attempt at these dishes! With plenty of shrimp and grits attire –you will find much in the way of food appreciation.
3. Men’s Gifts
Looking for something special for the man in your life? Perhaps you simply have male friends back home who might appreciate a souvenir. Either way, there are lots of men’s gifts to choose from in Savannah—especially if the man in question enjoys his seafood.
For example, Salisbury makes the cutest silver crab claw key ring. Additionally, you will find functional lobster mallets, crab knives, gift packs with Old Bay seasoning and mallets, and more. Last but not least, if you or your friend is a host of sorts, you will also find Georgia-relevant serving trays.
4. Lively New Plates
Are you in the market for some new plates? Whether they are for your home, vacation home, or for a friend, there are many adorable boutique style stores in Savannah in which you can find new plates. Not only can you find unique pieces of dinner and serving ware, you can also find complete sets to help you stand out. The designs on these plate sets are so unique, I, in fact, have never seen dishes like them. Clearly, it is a specialty possessed by the glass crafters in this area.
5. Irish Tea and Coffee
Whether you are Irish or not, there is much to learn and take in from other cultures. For example the Irish. When the Irish first came to America many of them settled in New York, with some extending down to states further South and even West. This was especially so due to the fact that they were not met with immediate approval and acceptance in New York. In fact, it was quite the opposite. With so many traveling down the coast, you can be sure to find your share of Irish goods. The best pieces, in my opinion, are their tea and coffee. They are great for just you or for having company!
6. Soy Candles
Practically anywhere you go is going to have candles for sale. Even some gas stations carry candles depending on where you find yourself. However, it is not common to find things like soy candles. In Savannah, you will find large soy wax candles already stored in glass jars or soy wax candles in travel tins. These are quite handy in case you need to fill your car with better smells. Soy candles typically burn longer, they are non-toxic and biodegradable and feature cool burning wax.
