You already know that all kinds of great products are made in workshops, factories, studios and kitchens across Alabama. Even better, many of them make perfect gifts for the special ones on your holiday shopping list.
Our 2015 Holiday Gift Guide highlights the creativity of Alabama companies, artisans, entrepreneurs and others producing one-of-a-kind items ideal for sharing this time of year. Last year’s list of innovative homegrown products showcased a handcrafted rocking chair, organic socks, fine writing pens and other memorable items ready to be adorned with a bow.
The unforgettable Alabama-made creations in this year’s Holiday Gift Guide include a muscular motorcycle with striking lines, environmentally friendly candles made with recycled wine bottles, and the stone-ground ingredient for absolutely glorious grits.
Down-home gifts are a hit with consumers these days because they have an authentic, artistic feel, says Kathy Milam, owner of The Alabama Gift Co. in Gadsden, which specializes in Alabama-made products. She’s been in business since 2006 and ships items all around the U.S.
