The Local Gift Idea List: Food and Drink Products Made in Nashville


Readers often ask if I have a list of Nashville made products that could be put into gift baskets for the holidays or out of town guest bags for weddings. Up until now, I didn’t have an actual list. Usually I would just rattle off a few ideas that quickly came to mind, but the four emails I’ve gotten in the past four days prompted me to create this post so I can reference it from now on.

As I learn of new locally made products, I’ll keep this updated. If you notice that I’m missing something, please leave a comment and let me know.  You can click on the names of the products/companies to go directly to their websites.
