Georgia Profile - WishBox

Georgia Profile

Posted on December 22, 2014

Georgia lies in the heart of the South, therefore in the heart of the unique Southern culture of the states. Sweet Tea is a staple in many households, words are longer and sweeter like the summers, and there are no strangers. "Hey, y'all" and "How are you?" are common greetings between all people. 

This sweet southern state has brought us the beverage giant Coca-Cola, but here at WishBox, we like to focus on the smaller gifts this state has brought us. Some of our favorite companies hail from the Peach State. Barking Cat Jewelry, Evergreen Candles, Fire & Flavor, Go Plates, GrillGrates, Habersham Candles, Salcia Salts, Savannah Bee Company, and Southern Culture Artisan Foods are all from Georgia. Each company was inspired by the southern culture in some way, whether it be food, tailgating, the coast, or nature.
