New Nashville Holiday Gifts for 2018

A few of your favorite gifts from last year have returned for 2018 like our Music City Holiday, Country Christmas, and Gourmet Holiday gifts. But we’ve added a few new Holiday options to choose from this year and we couldn’t be more excited about them! We’ve tried to ensure there’s something here for everyone. Each gift is designed using 100% locally sourced goods from right here in Nashville, Tennessee. They’re all carefully curated and beautifully wrapped with a complimentary handwritten note for the highest quality gifting experience. Without further ado, allow us to introduce the new guys!

If we haven’t pre-designed something that’s perfect for what you need, we would love to help customize something for you. Email us at gifts@highnotegifts.com and we’ll have our gift concierge reach out to help right away!

What Dad Really Wants for Father's Day: The Food Edition

Bourbon, Bacon, BBQ and Brunch.  It's what Dad really wants.  

Looking for a great gift idea for Father's Day?  Take our advice and send Dad one of these great gifts, or treat him to brunch at one of the best spots in Nashville.  Check out our top recommendations below and let us know what you're getting for your Dad this Father's Day.   

Bourbon

Now Dad can have the smooth taste of Bourbon in a unique way through Apple Bourbon Jam spread over fluffy buttermilk biscuits, Bourbon BBQ seasoning that adds a bold flavor to the grill, Bourbon Pecan granola for the perfect snack, and an award winning Bourbon Brittle to satisfy any man's sweet tooth.  

Bacon

Our Artisan Snack Box includes five great tastes from Nashville including Wildflower Honey Shortbread cookies, Prohibition Popcorn, stone ground chocolate, teriyaki beef jerky, and Bacon Brittle.....yes, BACON brittle!  If your Dad likes Bacon, he's going to love this perfect blend of sweet, smokey, and savory.  

BBQ

Barbecues are a Summers staple for Dads everywhere.  A grill, some good sauce, and the perfect seasoning blend will turn burgers, chicken, pork, and more into a mouth watering backyard BBQ experience. 

Brunch

Most Father's don't ask for much in return for all the sacrifices they make along the way, but don't they deserve a little pampering of their own sometimes?  Spending time with Dad over brunch seems like the perfect gift to us and Nashville has some of the best brunch options around.  You might even be able to squeeze in a little Bourbon, Bacon & BBQ into your brunch for the ultimate Father's Day gift food experience.  Here are a few of our top recommendations for places to take Dad this year: 

1. Tavern - This Midtown bar and restaurant has been one of the top spots for weekend brunch for years and there's a reason it's still a popular spot.  The food is good, there's a full bar, a patio, and TVs everywhere so you can catch the game while you're catching up over brunch.  Try the Cheddar Cheese Biscuits with chorizo gravy, the Nooner, or the Tavern Burger. 

2. Chauhan Ale and Masala House - This unexpected brunch spot is one of the best brunch menus in town for true foodies.  Inspired by Executive Chef Maneet Chauhan’s Indian roots, and her love for Southern cuisine, this is a unique brunch selection, but you won't regret anything on the menu.  Try the "What Came First, the Chicken or the Egg?", Elvis' Favorite waffles, Bacon Chicken Deviled Eggs, and don't leave without the Stop Monkeying Around bread that tastes like dessert for brunch. 

3. Etc. -   One of the few really great places to eat in Green Hills, this new spot from Chef Deb Paquette is intimate and casual and still a bit upscale.  Dad will love the classic Bistro Steak and Eggs with fried potato salad and don't miss out on the sour cream coffee cake. 

4. Saint Anejo - If Mexican food is more his speed, the perfect blend of brunch items and Mexican inspired food flavors coupled with a fantastic atmosphere can be found at Saint Anejo each weekend.  You can't go wrong with a single item on the menu, they've got a fantastic bar, and they have a great patio for when the weather is perfect for outdoor seating. 

Of course Nashville is filled with great brunch spots and if you're ambitious, maybe you want to even try your own hand at making Dad a Father's Day brunch at home so he never even has to put on real pants! Because isn't that the dream? 

Whatever you decide to do this Father's Day, know that if you're lucky enough to have a great Dad, you should celebrate him, say "thank you", and embrace the gift of time well spent with him whenever possible. 

To Father's everywhere, Happy Father's Day from Nashville, Tennessee! 

Gifts to Send Them Off to College

Leaving home for College can be exciting and scary all at the same time.  If you’ve just sent your baby to college and Nashville is home, consider sending a care package that will remind them of home and let them know how much you love and miss them already.  Or if your college student is in Nashville for school now, send something locally so they can get a taste of their new home. 

There’s nothing better for a college student than receiving a gift in the mail to enjoy and maybe even share with new friends or roommates.

Here are a few gifts we think would be perfect for them:

Taste of Nashville 

Taste of Nashville 

A small basket of sweets from Nashville makes an easy heartfelt gift that won’t involve you having to spend time baking homemade cookies, finding a container, and shipping them on your own.

Healthy Goods Basket 

Healthy Goods Basket 

If you’re not a fan of sending sweets, our Healthy Goods Basket has a host of snacks to keep their energy up without the sugar crash!

Gourmet Music City Basket 

Gourmet Music City Basket 

This shareable version of our Nashville made goodies is perfect for snacking on in dorm rooms and making new friends over a bag of gourmet granola or Tennessee honey shortbread cookies.

Leather Wrap Journal 

Leather Wrap Journal 

Send something simple they’ll use every day to jot down reminders like “Call Mom” and “Make Travel Plans to Go Home for Christmas”. 

Weather your child is one or twenty-one, they’re still one of the most important people in your life.  Every gift we send comes with a complementary handwritten note from you.  Let us help you make reminding them how much you care as easy as pie by choosing a gift we can ship for you.
