Your Definitive Guide to the Perfect #FranklinTN Holiday Gift
Holiday gifts can be a tricky thing. We all know that feeling of opening a gift from someone and immediately thinking, does this person even know me? Of course, we whip out our best fake smile and say how much we love it anyway because, well, that’s the southern thing to do right, but bless their hearts! This year, let’s all aspire to be the gift giver they remember for all the right reasons.
We’ve got some #FranklinTN inspired gift ideas for you that are sure to take care of all those hard to shop for folks on your shopping list. From the food lovers to shopaholics and everyone in between, this is the definitive guide to the perfect gift for them all. And if you decide that you need a little something for yourself too, we won’t tell!
For the chef in the family
For the person in the family who is happiest crafting new concoctions in the kitchen, the Historic Franklin Cookbook is the perfect answer. The fabulous restaurants that line historic Main Street draw visitors in from all over the world, and now some of Franklin’s award-winning chefs have shared their favorite recipes for you to take a little slice of their culinary magic home to your dinner table.
For the bourbon lover
The key to a making a good gift a great gift is picking something unique. Well, there is nothing more unique than a first release, and H. Clark Distillery has uncorked its inaugural barrel of bourbon. It is the first (legally) distilled, bottled and aged bourbon in Williamson County in 106 years! Proofed at 106 to commemorate the beginning of prohibition in the state and owner Heath Clark’s monumental role in making distillation legal across the state of Tennessee add a great backstory to these bottles of beautiful “brown water.” Be sure to pick up a bottle soon, though; they are sure to be a hot commodity!
For the sweet tooth
There is never a bad time for chocolate! It is just a scientific fact (or it should be at least), so logically that means any gift gets scientifically better when it includes chocolate. It becomes even truer when you stock up on the mouthwatering chocolates at Seersucker Candy Co. From their award winning Muzzle Loaders to Cherry Bombs and the classic Seersucker Original, you really can’t go wrong with any of them. If chocolate isn’t your thing, you’ll want to check out their bourbon, sangria and rose` infused gummies.
For the music lover
The music lover in your life may have a playlist longer than War and Peace, but nothing beats the experience of a live show! Set them up to attend a live taping of Music City Roots at The Factory at Franklin. They’ll see headliners they’ve known for years along with new artists they can discover for the first time, and may even wind up on TV too! Music City Roots is aired on Roots Radio and airs on PBS stations across the nation!
For the shopper
Is there someone in your family that loves to shop till they drop? You know, the ones that were out the door on Black Friday by 4 a.m.? Well, a gift card to the newly renovated CoolSprings Galleria will make their eyes light up like the Christmas tree! The largest mall in Middle Tennessee, CoolSprings Galleria has the stores to kick their fashion into high gear, fill their house with the latest home goods, or finally pull the trigger on that new electronic toy they’ve been wanting. The amazing menus at new additions like King’s Bowl and Connors Steak & Seafood will keep those shoppers fueled for a marathon day of deal hunting as well.
For the golfer
Is there a golfer in the family always looking for the newest club or gadget to fix their swing? Well, this year remind them that the putter is where they’ll pick up the most strokes, especially when they add a SeeMore Putter to the bag. Based in Franklin, SeeMore putters have been part of iconic golf moments like Payne Stewart’s famous ‘99 US Open win and Zach Johnson’s win at The Masters. When you give them a SeeMore putter, they’ll be one step closer to having their iconic moment next time they hit the links with their buddies.
