Branded Content Editor Stephanie here. 👋 If you grew up in the South like me, it’s probably drilled into your head to never show up empty-handed — you must bring a “Surcee.” That goes for special occasions like dinner parties + baby showers, and even more so for the holidays when you’re probably traveling and staying overnight with family or friends. 

If you want to give a host or hostess gift that’s locally-sourced + a little more creative than just a bottle of wine (no shade — it’s a go-to for a reason), we’ve rounded up 3 unique, GVL-made gift ideas sourced from local shopping platform Surcee

Bonus: These local gift ideas work just as well for stocking your guest rooms with a little GVL love for any holiday visitors. Plus, shopping Surcee is a great way to keep your money local while still getting the convenience of online shopping.

For the frequent entertainer: Match striker and candle 

What could be more appropriate for someone who’s always having people over than something to spice up their tablescape? Surcee merchant Diggs Designs is a GVL go-to for chic homeware goods, and a DIY set combining this match striker with this grapefruit pine candle is perfect for leaving out on dining tables or side tables. 

Thanks to Surcee, ordering these is simple: Just navigate to their website, scroll down to Diggs Designs products, and click “shop this product.” It’s that easy.

For the monogrammer: Paisley and Paper guest towels 

Nothing feels fancier than a pack of monogrammed, foil-embossed guest towels for your guest bathroom when visitors come for the weekend, or for a “thank you for having us gift.” Especially with all the hand-washing we’re doing these days. Paisley and Paper offers dozens of color/font choices.

For the foodie: Herb-infused olive oil 

A high-quality, artisan olive oil can go a long way in elevating a simple dish. You can choose from 10+ different Palmetto Olive Oil Co. craft olive oils + vinegars. Think: Mushroom- and sage-infused oil, Tuscan olive oil, blackberry ginger dark balsamic vinegar + more. We’re drooling.
