• Local Nashville Gift Guide for Mother’s Day

    May 8th, 2014

    Mother’s Day is almost here! Why not celebrate your mama in style with goods from local Nashville makers?! Being a part of the small biz community here in Nash has given EOH the inside scoop on some of the best artisans and creators in our area. We’re always wowed and encouraged by the beautiful products our fellow makers are creating out of Nashville…And we’ve found some seriously pretty gifts we can’t wait to share with you!

    As a first time mama + small biz owner here in Nashville, this post is all about two things Emily and the EOH team really believe in – celebrating motherhood & shopping local! Take note on some creative gift ideas…

    Personalized Stationery from EOH Anything monogrammed or personalized shows that extra touch of thought + care. We love these floral stationery notecards designed by the EOH team perfect for your mom to mail to far-away friends, kids at college, or grandkids across the country. And if your mama is anything like ours, she appreciates the old-fashioned art of an handwritten note!

    Floral Workshop from Consider the Wildflwrs Give something you’ve never given before this year! We love the idea of gifting an experience like an art class or a floral workshop. Your mom can sneak off for a little alone time while she learns a new skill or perfects an old one. Purchase a class just for her or add another so her friend can tag along! Consider the Wildflwrs curates earthy floral classes for locals to learn more about flower arranging…complete with goodie bags, snacks, and refreshments.

    Jewelry from Miriam Designs This new jewelry company is founded on creating handmade + hope-filled goods. They teach women coming out of addiction how to make with their hands and create something beautiful. Pick up a delicate necklace or pretty pair of earrings all while supporting other mothers and women in our city.

    Kitchen Papers from Hester & Cook These playful placemats and table runners have been sold in shops like Anthropologie and Paper Source across the country, but they are made right here in Nashville, Tennessee! We love the ease of Kitchen Papers because you can tear off sheets of paper goods as you need them, and then toss them in the trash when the party is over. Perfect for the hostess that likes simplicity and a quick clean-up!

    Art Prints from Chelsea Petaja Chelsea is an artist in town (married to renown photographer Tec Petaja) who sells delightful watercolor art prints. This one features a sweet e. e. cummings quote about love. She has others with quotes from some of our favorite creatives like Van Gough, Anne Lamott, and Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    Yarn from Camellia Fiber Co. Got a crafty mom thats always creating things with her hands? Camellia Fiber Co. produces gorgeous, thick handspun yarn out of her darling studio in Nashville. Plus, all her products are all-natural!

    Celebrate your mom + the women who have helped you grow on May 11th! It’s so special to take the time to give them a little something in love and thanks for all they have poured into our lives. And if you are a mama, an aunt, or a special friend- Happy Mother’s Day from us! We are grateful for people like you!
