2010 Holiday Gift Guide: Nashville Locals
This gift guide is for all my pals who live and love Nashville and the Middle Tennessee area. The following ideas are all made here in Tennessee! Plus, you’d be supporting our economy… we need it especially after the rough year we’ve had.
Guys… this is the cutest thing I’ve seen in a while. Baker Buddy is a business started by a 10-year-old boy in Green Hills (Leif Gossett) who makes his own pies and then delivers them himself (with the help of his mom). So stinking adorable. No website available, just his Baker Buddy Pie contact info and menu in PDF format.
Murfreesboro’s Aden Creations has for sale some very tasteful and inexpensive jewelry definitely worth checking out.
Nashville Wraps… this place is a recent find, and oh my goodness. Why have I not ever shopped here before? It’s a gift-wrapping supply super-online-store! Raffia! Bags! Ribbon! Oh my!
Nashville’s MaryInk is a favorite Etsy shop of mine. Great designs and tees.
Ever since college, I have loved Thistle Farms, the social enterprise run by the women of Magdalene House — a residential program for women who have survived lives of violence, prostitution and addiction. The Magdalene women make amazing goods, including candles, lotions, etc. Just great stuff.
Christie Cookies! A Nashville landmark! These cookies are magically soft and very yummy. You can even personalize your own tin!
There is a shop in downtown Franklin (just south of Nashville) called Rock Paper Scissors, and it’s this awesome stationery and gift shop. I love it! (I also love their blog that I recently subscribed to.) They have wonderful holiday ideas, and if you don’t want to run down to Franklin, you can buy online in their shop.
L-o-v-e these photos by Nashville’s Meghann Langford. All are very affordably priced.
