What are some of the "Best-Of's" in Savannah, GA?

I am hosting my wedding in Savannah, GA this June. Ia m from Louisville, KY and will only have a few days there before the actual wedding. All of my guests are from out of town and I would like to make gift bags for each of them filled with wonderful goodies you can only get in Savannah. It can be anything. Any ideas?

May sound strange, but the Savannah Bee Company is a great store in Savannah. All types of honey and honey 'supplies'.

Definitely something from River Street Sweets. I usually buy a Savannah wall calendar for my parents when I'm there. It has beautiful photos of Savannah each month. You can find it at most gift shops in Savannah. The store Nourish has some Moon River Brewery beer soap that I usually buy when I'm in Savannah. I'm sure they would give you a discount if you bought several. This soap is popular so you would want to order it ahead of time.

And Byrds Cookies on waters Ave. Alittle far from downtown. Look for it downtown in shops.

Here's a link to Savannah City Market which is a 4 block square of restaurants and shops near Bay Street. They have some great shops that sell a lot of GA products. You could call a few or email them. Or wait until you arrive and pick some things out for the wedding gifts. Good luck.

Lowcountry Luxe candles in the "Savannah" scent make wonderful keepsakes. Cookie tins or treats from Byrd Cookie Company. Savannah Bee Co. honey sets…River Street Sweets or Savannah Candy Kitchen pralines…Savannah Toile items are very popular here too.

All of these mentioned have websites and bulk ordering options where you could make arrangements in advance and pick up when you get to town.

SavannahBruce is right with Byrd Cookie Company - but I'll take it a step futher and say Byrd Cookie's Scotch Oatmeal Cookies!

P.S. - They're even better when they are stale. I ain't lyin'.
