Chocuterie from Olive & Sinclair  

Scott Witherow is an absolute wiz with chocolate. His chocuterie program is a play on making dessert look like cured sausage and he has hit the ball out of the park. He includes everything any good sausage should have from the netting and mold on the outside (string and powdered sugar) to the perfect little bits of fat on the inside (white chocolate and marshmallow).

Handmade Kitchen Utensils from White's Mercantile

A high quality kitchen spoon is not just a souvenir, but something you'll use and cherish for a lifetime. Not to mention the fact that every time you use it, you'll remember your found memories of Nashville.

A Pair of Imogene + Willie Jeans

Handmade with the care and quality that you can expect from Nashville artisans. Matt and Carrie Eddmenson are great people who take pride in what they do and it shows. Don't miss out on the other accessory items they carry as well.

An "I Believe In Nashville" T-shirt

It's such a great design and logo that you can't help but want to wear it everywhere. My daughter wore her onesie from them all the time.

A Red Boot Koozie from Robert's Western World

This shows people two things -- first is that you are cool enough to know to go to, and have been to, Robert's Western World, which is hands down the best honky tonk in Nashville. Second, it lets people know that you are also a connoisseur of some of the finest can beer in all the world; beer that needs to be kept cold for optimal enjoyment; beer that has changed the lives of many, PBR.
