Nashville Gift Ideas For Ladies

Nashville Gift Ideas For Ladies

by Jen Bua

A few weeks ago, TJ shared a rundown of Nashville-made gift ideas for the guys in your life. I’m following up with a similar roundup for ladies you love (though some of these gifts would be great for just about anyone).

We’ve been sharing gift ideas on the blog for a few years now, but we’re focusing on homegrown gift ideas this year in part because we’ve seen such an amazing explosion of creativity and entrepreneurship in Nashville, Franklin and nearby recently. At this point, it’s easy to stay 100 percent local and finish up your gift list with great choices. To us, that’s something worth celebrating in and of itself.

So, here, 12-days-of-Christmas picks for Nashville-made gifts for ladies:

Lavender Holiday Collection gift set from Music City Suds

Bath/beauty-related gifts are always good for ladies whose Santa list is a bit of a mystery to you. But big-box gift sets can get pretty predictable. Music City Suds’ creations — from all-natural soaps and bath salts to soy candles with names that nod to our town’s musical exports (Lady Anti-Smellum body sticks, Kiss Kristofferson lip balm) — are not at all predictable. I really like their themed gift collections, like this Lavendar one, with bath salt, soap and a lotion bar in a reusable burlap gift bag. ($25, available via

Cascade Necklace from Suzanne Myers Jewelry

It’s really hard to buy jewelry for someone else. But I think when you go simple, clean and classic, you’ll almost always land on something your giftee will really love. Nashville’s Suzanne Myers has some beautiful designs that fit that bill, like this Cascade Necklace, with five hand-cut sterling silver petals making up a two-inch pendant, including both a sterling chain (with Myers’ unique clasp) and interchangeable leather strap. ($162, available by emailing

i+w x s.e. sherrick clutch at Imogene + Willie

What I said about jewelry definitely doubles for bags/clutches/etc. Which is why I like Imogene + Willie’s clutch collaboration with Nashville artist Susan Sherrick. It’s a simple design (with the always cute I+W plus detail), made with quality material (pebbled cowhide) by a great local company. Plus it comes in three sizes and can be folded over or used full size. ($180, available via

Small Deep Rectangle Platter from 400 Moons

A way to help a loved one pretty up their holiday snacks serving game, handmade here in Nashville. ($22, available via

Emil Erwin No. 118 Belt

Bags from Nashville leather artist Emil Congdon of Emil Erwin are heirloom-quality products, and that level of quality and design means they’re not low-budget picks. But if you’d like to share some Emil Erwin quality with a loved one at a lower price point, you can’t go wrong with their No. 118 belt. These have a slim, classic design made with high-quality leather and hidden adjustment holes that leave the look clean — plus, they’re guaranteed for life. ($90, available via

Oculus Cuff from Amanda Valentine

You might’ve caught Nashville designed Amanda Valentine on Project Runway. If so, you know she’s highly talented. And if there’s a fashion diehard and/or big PR fan in your life, here’s a good way to bring Valentine’s work into their holiday haul: an Oculus Cuff bracelet that makes a commanding statement. (From $275, available via

Wyoming Cowl from Josie Faye

Keep someone on your list cozy this winter and looking as cute as they are warm. These cowls are made here in Nashville with handspun, 100 percent USA-bred wool yarn. ($160, available via

Bottle of Prichard’s Double Chocolate Bourbon

I know a few ladies who appreciate a good bottle of bourbon, and I’ll guess you probably do too. Prichard’s Double Chocolate Bourbon adds that extra bit of decadence via a partnership with East Nashville-based chocolatiers Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co. (Most likely available at your favorite liquor store, usually around $60 for a 750 ml bottle)

The Original Bell Jar Table Lamp from Southern Lights Electric

Know someone who appreciates rustic/industrial style? For those folks, I love this table lamp from Nashville’s Southern Lights Electric — it’d look good anywhere from an office desk to a living room side table, and it comes with an exposed filament Edison-style bulb to complete the look. ($135, available via

Mehari Blanket from fashionABLE

First cool thing about Nashville-founded fashionABLE: By purchasing their products, you’re helping provide training and employment to at-risk women in Africa. Second cool thing: Items like this handwoven blanket are really beautiful. ($78, available via

Greeting cards set from Pop-in-Greetings

A cute stocking stuffer: assorted patterned cards with interchangeable letterpress greetings that your giftee can keep around for all the greeting card-appropriate events that come up in life (congratulating, get-well-sooning, etc.). ($22.50, available via

Mixology candles from Paddywax 

Another fun stocking stuffer for friends/family members who love a good cocktail: Nashville’s Paddywax creates hand-poured, soy wax blended candles scented to honor classics of mixology like the Sazerac (whiskey/lemon) and Old Fashioned (whiskey/orange). Snag a few to give someone you love a stocked bar without the hangover. ($16 each, available via

Any of these pique your list interest? Have any other Nashville-bred suggestions to share? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
