Fun fact about me: I am a notorious procrastinator. Whether it’s scheduling an appointment or packing for a trip, I can almost guarantee that it is done last minute. Unfortunately, holiday gifts also fall victim to my procrastination and I spend the days leading up to every occasion and holiday in a store instead of with family and friends. However, the Town of Farragut has shops filed with gifts that are perfect for anyone. For any gift recipient, you can find just the right thing here in Farragut.
For the guys:
When I think of my dad, one of the first things that come to mind is his chair in the living room that he sits in every night. If the man in your life’s chair has run its course or it’s time for him to finally get the go-to living room chair, check out Amish Excellence. They will work with you to design a custom piece of furniture that will be the perfect fit for every home. For the car enthusiast, stop by Pure Magic Carwash for a gift certificate so they can keep their ride looking good when they ride into the new year. For the fitness enthusiast, grab a new pair of running shoes from Fleet Feet or a membership from 9Round Fitness.
For the girls:
One of my best friends is always finding new ways to decorate her space; for her, I’ll stop by McEntire and Mayes Interiors to get a fun piece of artwork. Art can take all types of forms, so if interior design isn’t a concern for one of your gift recipients, check out International Flair Jewelers. Here you will find unique necklaces or bracelet charms that celebrate East Tennessee’s rich culture. If fitness is a larger concern for your friend or family member, check out Campbell Station Jazzercise and give them a 10-class package so they can sweat their way into the new year.
For the host & hostess:
We all love holiday parties and would hate to show up empty handed at the door. For the livelier hosts, swing by Campbell Station Wine & Spirits or Dixie Lee Wine & Liquors to grab a bottle of their favorite wine or whiskey. Do your hosts exude Farragut pride? The DW Designs is the perfect place to find a candle, shirt or hat for them. Does your host love a handmade gift? The Shoppes at Homespun is a one stop shop that will have just the thing to wow your host.
I realize not everyone waits until the last minute. You had every gift purchased by the day after Thanksgiving, down to your dog groomer and mailman. But what happens when you run out of gift wrap? Lucky for you, Linda’s Hallmark is just down the street, ready with bags and tags for all your purchases.
Whether you’ve waited until the last minute (like I have), overlooked your second cousin once removed or just found out that your daughter is bringing her college boyfriend home for the holidays (what was his name again?), hopefully this Farragut gift guide gives you the inspiration you need. Farragut is home to many shops and artisans that make the perfect gift for anyone on your list, hopefully this guide gets your holiday shopping started right in your backyard!
