Make this Holiday one to remember with show-stopping, funny, and handmade gift options for the ladies in your life – whether that's your girlfriends, partner, sister, or daughter. We've rounded up several ideas from the wonderful Downtown Knoxville shops that are sure to be one of the best gifts they've ever received. And at all price points! Remember to shop early and support local!

A Boutique Outfit from Bliss & Tori Mason Shoes

If you're looking for a one-stop shop for every girl on your list, Bliss & Tori Mason Shoes won't disappoint, as they offer a bit of everything for everybody – clothes, accessories, novelties, kitchen items, and much more. We recommend working with the staff to put together a complete outfit, head to toe, for the lady on your gift list. From clothing to jewelry to purses and shoes. You'll leave with a few, fun bags full! 

Oven Mitts & Tea Towels from Earth to Old City

Y'all. Your ladies will love the hilarious oven mitts and tea towels that Earth to Old City carries. Not only are they super cute, but they are practical, and will bring a smile to their face. What more could you ask for in a gift? Make a stop by this long-standing "scruffy little gift shop" on Market Square for these kitchen accessories, plus so many more special gift items.


The Cocktail Garden from Union Ave Books

Have a cocktail connoisseur on your list? The Cocktail Garden from Union Ave Books shares recipes focused around seasonal flavors and produce, from summery raspberries to herbs like basil and thyme. Pair the recipe book with local favorites like Knox Whiskey Work's Fleur de Vie, a floral liqueur made with rose buds and lavender. Or PostModern Spirit's Elderberry Gin Liqueur with just the right amount of sweetness finished with their citrusy Giniferous Gin. Or both!


Hand-Poured Candles from Jacks

All-natural soy candles, hand-poured in Clinton, TN, have made their way to Jacks of Knoxville in a variety of sizes, three wick dough bowls, and room spray. We love the Vanilla Chai, Tennessee Flapjack, and Butterscotch (all smell like heaven). Gingerbread, Fresh Cut Christmas Tree, and Frankincense & Myrrh will be available mid-November. Once in store, you won't be disappointed by other pretty gifts you'll find!

Ceramics from Rala

Just wow! Handmade, rustic, and oh so beautiful, the collection of handmade ceramics at Rala is where you'll find a perfect gift. We particularly love this yellow and white floral dish from Blanket Fort Studio in Knoxville, but take a look at the entire collection. There's sure to be one that's just right for the person on your gift list. 

Tote Bags from Eddie's Health Shoppe

Adorbs and great for carrying to the supermarket or local farmers' market. These Moonlight Maker tote bags from Eddie's Health Shoppe are made in Asheville, and feature other punny sayings, like "Let that shiitake go," and "Avocardio." Shop in-store for these cuties!

BrĂ¼Mate Tumblers from Bliss & Tori Mason Shoes

Not only are the BrüMate Insulated Cans and Tumblers really cute, but they create for a perfect drinking experience, maintaining perfectly chilled temperatures until the last drop. These stylish tumblers keep sodas, seltzer, wine, spirits, and beer fresh and cold throughout the day. Shop Bliss & Tori Mason Shoes for a variety of colors and glitters; there's a BrüMate for any personality. 


Aromatherapy Blend Roll-Ons from Earth to Old City

A sweet, relaxing gift for your gals! Elevate their everyday with a roll of these aromatherapy blends found in-store at Earth to Old City made with all-natural ingredients. These pure essential oils come in a variety of different scents for every moment, to help reduce stress, relieve headaches, and unwind for the day.

Shop in-store or online!

Most of the gifts featured on this list can be bought online and shipped right to your door. Hello, local & convenient gifts! However, there's something special about shopping in-store for the holiday season. So, shop early! The weather is great, plus it's easy to walk from shop to shop with wide sidewalks downtown. Feel safe knowing that masks and physical distancing are required. See you downtown! And check out our other gift guides!
