The Gift:  Laurie Louis is the owner of Laurie Louis Designs, a southern-inspired social stationery and gifts company based in Indian Land, SC. I had the chance to meet Laurie when she hosted an al fresco dinner party at her home, offering guests a first look at her the latest collection that included notepads, coasters, wine tags, lucite trays and more. Her boutique brand is a nod to her mother, who she says (along with her friends) were legendary for creating parties with love and a true example of southern charm.  

The Wrapping:  Laurie shares just a bit of her gifting life…
