Next month is the husband's birthday, and I already have a few things in mind to buy him. What I need help on is something that is not for sale. Southerners of the US and the Yankees that love them, may I pick your brain?

I really want to give my husband the Southern treatment.
Let's say for a moment that that's an actual thing.
(Also, I understand that not all Southerners do this, and not all Yankees do that.)
The best that I got from my internet search, and the one thing I actually took from it, was that I should always try to have dessert (which I am definitely going to put in to practice, I know he will love that :)) That was exactly the kind of thing I was looking for.
What are some things that make your Southerner feel more homey or more comfortable or things you do that remind them of the south?
What are some things that a Southern wife/spouse/SO might know, that their Yankee counterpart might not know?
I know I'm asking for generalities, but like the dessert thing above, generalities are exactly what I'm looking for.
Also, your best crab cake recipes are welcomed.
Thanks in advance, I really appreciate it.
