Holiday Gathering Gifts

Cheese Board

The holiday season here! It’s a time to slow down, spend time with family and friends and make memories that will last a lifetime. As you make plans to partake in holiday festivities, consider these Nashville-made gift ideas for your hosts. We’ve curated the perfect list of gifts that will delight anyone you’re visiting. Support local businesses by shopping small this holiday season!

Plant Shop

Belle Meade’s Creekside Garden Center has a variety of festive plants that will brighten anyone’s day and home for the holiday season.

Ranger Station Candle

Ranger Station Candles are made with soy-based wax, sustainably sourced fragrance oils and contain lead-free wicks. Another cool feature is when the candle is finished, the wax can be removed and voila you have a drinking glass.

Cheese Board

Porter Road Butcher is a destination for more than just meat. Stop in their East Nashville outpost and browse a variety of local cheeses and cured meats for the perfect charcuterie board; a crowd pleaser for any holiday gathering.


Dozen Bakery’s handmade pies are irresistible. I’m personally not the best pie maker, but luckily, Dozen is close by. Choose from a variety of flavors, but get your order in soon if you want one for Thanksgiving.
