Where to Buy Christmas Gifts Made in Our Hometown
With only a few shopping days left before Christmas, you don't have to go far to find a local gift that raises the bar.
At Pure Sodaworks in Chattanooga, a little bit of fizz, could be the perfect fit under the tree.
If your loved one is more of the green thumb type, try the top of Signal Mountain, where the orchids are surely worth the hype. Just ask the owners of Lines Orchids.
At the Savannah Oaks Winery in Delano, the end product could be the perfect way to ring in the New Year, made in a town that doesnt even have a red light.
But if bubbly isn't your pick, Old Mills Kettle Corn made in Chickamauga could just do the trick.
Still on our Holiday list of local gifts, Sensa-Calm's weighted blankets made in St. Elmo that help children with special needs.
Or what about Worm Works organic fertilizer from their working worm farm in Etowah.
If you're looking to add a kick to your cake, Tennessee Moonshine knows just what to bake.
And whether you're stocking will be stuffed with some steel (with a tomahawk from RMJ Tactical)
or a tech-savvy find is more of your deal (like Variable, Incs Node),
buying a gift made right here at home,
if it's made out of ribbon (from Hixsons Ribbons and Bows, Oh My)
or something that shatters (from Ignis Glass)
means the money stays local,
and sometimes that's all that matters
