2018 NATIVE Gift Guide

For our sixth NATIVE Gift Guide, we decided to do things a little differently. As usual, we featured products from nearly fifty local businesses, but this time, we pulled items with some explicitly Nashville-y archetypes in mind. We like to think this guide has gifts for the person who can speak on Iron Maiden’s discography with authority (this guy definitely prefers the Paul Di’Anno albums); gifts for the person who says “Anchor down!” way too often (you only get a pass on game day); and gifts for the person who is perpetually posting from wineries and farmer’s markets (seriously, what do these people do for a living?).

We hope the fictional Nashvillians we’ve created in these pages not only make you chuckle, but also inspire you to buy local for the thrash aficionado or SEC fanatic in your life. Because whether you spend your Saturdays combing through record store bargain bins or tailgating, you’re a Nashvillian. And Nashvillians should try and support the people making stuff in this city.
