Easy Gifts & Finds from the Coziest Chattanooga Spots


It can be overwhelming to try and think about all the teachers, neighbors, and party hosts all at once this season. Sometimes you just need someone to tell you where to go. I feel like these spots are warm, cozy, and thoughtful gifts for anyone.

  • Trader Joe's Wine, Wreaths, and a small cheese board with this $3.99 Candle (below.) Pick just one or all goes together!
  • Trader Joe's Chocolate Passport set for the traveler in your life.
  • Bread from Niedlovs Bakery (their sourdough is my favorite with soups.) I also want to try their Pizza Nights (Every Friday from 5-9.)
  • Best Cappuccino in Chattanooga easily goes to Velo Coffee Roasters. Support local with a gift card.


Tips for to personalize small gifts this year.


  • Add your family Christmas card to your child's Teacher's gift.
  • A hand written note of "thank you for hosting." or "thank you for investing in my child this year" is the probably the most cherished of gifts anyone could receive.
  • Bake Bread or Cookies and wrap up in a clear bag with berries&twigs from your yard. Put a cute to and from Holiday sticker from Home Goods and done!
  • Print Sticker Wine bottle labels for your Christmas Party Favors or hostess gift with your family's Christmas card pic or message and place over an inexpensive wine label from Trader Joe's (my go to is www.cocobonwines.com)
  • Think outside the box this year and maybe get your child's teacher a clutch for her next date night? Nordstrom Rack just opened which has great prices on these.
  • And finally, I know most people want a gift card but you can always add a small Starbucks $5.00 one inside the clutch then everyone wins.
