GIFT GUIDE | NASHVILLE HOT SPOTS
We might should rename this gift guide, Surviving The Holidays in Nashville, because honestly each of these places help me gift give, look my best and feel my best during this hectic time of the year. But don’t worry, you can definitely still reap some of these benefits even if you do not live in Nashville.
Of course I couldn’t look or feel my best without fresh lashes and that’s all thanks to my girl Suzanne at City Lash. I swear that she is the best in town and as a bonus, she’s the sweetest person you’ll ever meet.
I love snacking on Christie Cookies during the holiday season, Santa isn’t the only one who needs cookies. And they just opened up a new location on 12th South which is dangerous. The great thing about Christie Cookies, is that they deliver and ship tins of cookies which are perfect for holiday gifts OR bring a dozen as a hostesses gift- I promise, everyone will thank you.
MY GIRL Karee. You know her, you’ve seen her and she’s the reason that my face glows. She’s the real deal. I received her glow facial a few years ago as a Christmas gift from Steve and that was the beginning to a beautiful relationship with forever glowing skin. You cannot go wrong with any of her products.
E. Allen has been one of my favorite boutiques in Nashville and it’s all thanks to Elizabeth Allen. She is the gem behind E. Allen and she was generous enough to give you all a code! You can use LANDYN25 in stores and online! (Offer ends 12/31/18)
Holidays got the best of you? I know they’re starting to get to me. From cooking to gift shopping, picking up my kids from school and juggling their school activities- I can’t catch a break. One of my favorite places to hit when I need a relaxing afternoon or massage is Escape Day Spa. They create the perfect atmosphere where you can forget that your kids left their lunch at home. HA.
I love the holiday’s, because every year I am reminded of how much I love Nashville Toffee Company. We always pick up a tin or two at our local Whole Foods and snack away. These make the perfect gifts + stocking stuffers.
You girls know I love Hemline. It’s been one of my go-to stores from the beginning! They always know just what I am looking for every time I pop in. Mary Maddox, the owner, was so kind enough to give a discount if you mention my name! 20% off! You can do this in stores or call over the phone to make a purchase. (Offer ends 12/4/18)
MY BALOON GIRLS. You know I love to throw a party and you better believe any party that I throw, Vroom Vroom will be involved. PLEASE go to them for everything. Yes, they can really make a balloon for any occasion. PLUS, for you out of state gals, they have started sending personalized balloons (deflated) right to your door- you just have to get them blown up. They are the best!
The Perfect Pair is the sweetest boutique right in the heart of Green Hills. They always have the best girls working there and the best style. The Perfect Pair is giving 25% off jewelry under $75 (exclusive to in town shoppers).
I love a good blow out because that means I can go even longer without washing my hair. HA. But seriously, the girls over at The Dry House really know how to give a good blow out. Whenever I need one, they are some of the first people I call and even for makeup! They did my hair and make up for the St. Jude’s Fashion show, and I was blow away (like always). Hair: Rachel Kulp Makeup: Aubrey Jones. Seriously, make an appointment for your next big night out or holiday party.
Import Flowers, a local Nashville hidden gem. This place is truly magical, especially if you love creating your own floral displays. I’ve used Import Flowers for years when I want to create something of my own. PLUS, they will even ship to you. Remember, they shipped Belinda all her goods for her thanksgiving table.
Love + Lion are the girls behind the custom tattoos and personalized mugs. They’re taking the world by storm with their fun creations. They would be perfect to use for your holiday party or even a hostess gift. They can pretty much do ANYTHING. They were also kind enough to give a discount with the code LANDYN for 20% off.
I recently discovered FLWR this past year but it did not take me long to get hooked. They have one of the best flower delivery services in Nashville and every. single. arrangement that I have had delivered looks like it was meant to be in a magazine. Their work is beautiful and would make the perfect gift to anyone this season.
The Showroom. My LIFESAVER when it comes to renting dresses in Nashville. They actually just dressed me for the St. Jude’s runway show and are dressing me for a few upcoming events this season. I have used them for gala’s in the past, as well as events like CMA + Swan Ball. You can never go wrong there when you need a dress.
Getting back on the work out train because I know that I need to! I am just a better wife, mom and friend when I do. SHED will definitely keep me in shape this season, especially when all those extra cookies start to add up. Sometimes it just feels good to sweat and I know I always feel great when I leave there.
Melissa has been a dear friend of mine for years now and she has some of the best hook ups when it comes to hair, beauty and styling products at Parlour 3. It’s a MUST GO in Nashville. She’s got everything. Hair, make up and even spray tans, which is a must in the winter of course.
