Gift Guide: Editor in Chief Elizabeth Hudson's Picks

1) North Carolina Tree Farm Candle

"Growing up, we always had a real tree. But these days, it's easier for my mom to put up an artificial one. This hand-poured candle reminds us both of earlier Christmases, when the scent of evergreen wafted through the house."

2) Snowy Day Tea Assortment

"As a daily tea drinker, I'm always looking for new varieties. These new locally sourced blends from Asheville Tea Company are beautiful to look at and delicious to drink."

"Inspired by our September issue, I went camping for the first time this year. Now that I'm a bona fide outdoorswoman, I'm inspired by all things camping and love this
birdhouse model set that you assemble yourself."

4) Handblown Glass Decanter Set 

"I try to keep my house according to one of my favorite quotes: 'Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.' I think this
exquisite set for Terrane Glass achieves both."

5) Birthstone Pendant Necklaces
"Every year for my birthday, my grandmother would gift me a piece of birthstone
jewelry. I was really excited to see our fresh take on the traditional birthstone necklace." 

6) Biscuits and Jam Set

"As we put the finishing touches on our February 2019 issue all about biscuits, my mouth has been watering for a home-baked taste. This set makes the perfect gift to
satisfy a craving for breakfast-y baked goods."

7) North Carolina Craft Beer Jigsaw Puzzle

"This puzzle makes for a phenomenal way to spend a Sunday afternoon, perhaps with a pour of your favorite North Carolina craft brew. My pick would be the milk stout from The Duck-Rabbit Brewery."

8) Pottery Luminary

"My mother and I have been collectors of North Carolina pottery for more than 20 years. This luminary from Missions Pottery in Lexington makes a beautiful addition to our collection."
