It City.

NASHVILLESKYLINE

We fell in love with Nashville before it was the “it” city of the South.  Don’t get us wrong - we swoon over celebrity chefs bringing their flare to the Nashville food scene just as much as the next foodie, but that’s just icing on the cake!  What we love most about Nashville are the people. 

I know, I know….you’re thinking “how cliché!”.   But it’s true. 

For the most part, Nashvillians are genuinely friendly, creative, and supportive.  It makes Nashville the place we are proud to call our home.  In fact, if you ask us about how much we like Nashville, you’ll find it’s hard to get us to stop gushing!

We love being a part of this city and we love getting to see and experience all of the amazing contributions people have brought to Nashville that make it what it is today. 

Our favorite things to do and our favorite foods to eat just so happen to be centered around local small businesses based right here in Music City.  Businesses that have grown through a whole lot of work, determination, and a lot of local love! 

We wanted to contribute something back to our community that supports the amazing work these artisans are doing.  We couldn’t think of a better way than to bundle them together in beautifully packed gift crates for you, for your family, your friends, employees, and clients.

At High Note Gifts, we’re getting to share the things that we love and it doesn’t get much better than that. 

I should mention that we’re also pretty obsessed with music, chocolate (but who isn’t?), encouraging other entrepreneurs, good food, new adventures, finding the perfect gift, serving our community, and spending quality time with family and friends.  

We’ve got a lot of amazing things to introduce you to and we can’t wait to share them with you here.  Feel free to post comments or reach out to us directly with questions, comments, suggestions……or if you simply want to chat about food, music, Nashville, or whatever else makes your heart happy!     

In a day and age where it seems like there is never enough time and always more to do, we’re honored that you would read our blog and we hope to hear from you soon!
