During the holidays, it seems those we buy gifts for tend to fall into one of three categories: the one who has everything, the one who wants nothing, or the one who wants everything. To make this gift selection process even more challenging, we self-impose another level of difficulty, we want the gift to be personal.

Fortunately, Nashville is filled with locally crafted and unique keepsakes perfect for any interest and located in scenic and interesting venues.  We’ve combed through our favorite shops in town to help turn the process from drudgery to more pleasurable experience.
