Holiday Surcie Ideas

Helloooooo, everybody! Haskell Harris here, dispatching my first post for CCD.

And why not start off with holiday surcie ideas? It is December after all!

Surcies, by my humble definition, are small, thoughtful presents that Southerners give each other throughout the year, just because.

But holidays are really the high time for showering friends, family, and stockings hung on the mantle with these pint-size pretties.

Here are a few of my favorites that I’ll be giving this year:

-Nail polish with a Midas touch. So fun! The below is called “Gold Lame” by Chanel and it’s available via Nordstrom here.


Stephanie Johnson makeup bags via Elizabeth Stuart Design here in Charleston. I love the royal blue and gold look below.

Bellocq Teas No. 44 “Bellocq Christmas” Tea. Yes, the organic tea is very, very good. But the packaging is out-of-this-world beautiful.


Post Script: Dear brides, don’t forget that small items like those seen above also make great welcoming bag and/or parting favors!
