As we anxiously await (and cautiously brace ourselves for the craziness of) the holiday season, we are treating ourselves to a leisurely month of shopping. This month calls for transitional clothing pieces, seasonal decor and some well-deserved pampering. We present to you a list of 19 great FINDS for your November and (early) holiday wish list!
FOR YOUR FALL TRENDS
If there’s one thing we know to be true about fall in Nashville, it’s that the proper day’s dress can waiver based on a constant fluctuation in temperature. For that reason, we seize any opportunity to find a light layer that can both provide warmth and help postpone the use of a heavy coat. This suede jacket from SVM Boutique is just transitional piece your wardrobe needs. Get it for $74 at the store’s Brentwood location.
If you’ve been on the hunt for a cute and versatile black bag, this leather COACH satchel from FLIP is the November find for you. With a long, chain strap and plenty of room for your daily essentials, this $198.98 bag is a steal and an excellent go-to for your casual day-to-day outfits and your dressier evening ensembles as well!
The Leslie from Johnston & Murphy is the bootie you need this season. Available in black Italian calfskin, forest Italian oiled suede and pictured here in mushroom Italian calfskin, this comfortable bootie is ideal for any fall festivities you have planned. Don’t worry, it even has a zipper on the inside! Find it for $198.
This cashmere topper from The French Shoppe will ensure that you have a fabulous layer to keep your arms warm while not putting a damper on your chosen ensemble during dressier holiday events. Choose from black, sky blue, lavender, pink and grey for $120 each!
FOR EARLY GIFT SHOPPING
Alphabet charm necklace
Personalized items make the best gifts! This season, give someone the new Judith Bright alphabet charm necklace, available in 14K gold-filled, rose gold-filled and sterling silver. For an extra touch, add her birthstone to any necklace for $10. Stack multiple letters for an entire set of initials or even spell a short name! Find it for $58.
We’ve found one of the simplest and chicest ways that guys (and gals) can stay organized as they travel this season. Swing by Onward Reserve before you head out of town to pick up one of these Filson travel packs for $55. They also make a great holiday gift!
FOR YOUR SEASONAL DECOR
Though we adore a touch of color any time of the year, our eyes were drawn to these beautiful red planters from Bates Nursery and Garden Center. Perfect for the holidays, they’re available for $36.99 to $59.99.
Perched on a mantle or resting on a dresser, topiaries are the touch that can tastefully finish any area of your home. This particular topiary can complement your holiday arrangements or provide year-round decor in spaces that need some interior greenery! Plant, $95, and Turkish olive jar, $85, are both available at GasLamp Too.
As you shop through the collection of handwoven oriental rugs at Nashville Rug Gallery, we bet you’ll be dreaming up new ways to incorporate them into multiple spaces in your home. Get this colorful Turkish 1.7-by-2.10-foot rug for $115, or walk out with any of the other beautiful selections in this size!
Stack them, fill them or simply let them sit and do their thing. These metal bowls from Merridian Home Furnishings can be used in a number of ways to decorate your home with accessories that will last through the seasons. Dress them for the holidays when you feel festive, or fill them with fresh flowers when spring rolls around. They are available in 9.5-inch, 10.5-inch and 12.5-inch sizes, with prices ranging from $19 to $29.
As you welcome a multitude of guests into your home this season, the time to add even more coasters to your collection is now. These bundled packs of four marble coasters from Ashley Meier Linens + Interiors will protect your surfaces with a tasteful touch! They would also make an excellent hostess gift. Find them for $20.
FOR PRE-HOLIDAY PAMPERING
This Red Carpet Facial in a Box from Olga Lorencin gives you all the essential steps for that seasonal skincare you’ve been needing. Some of our trusted expert friends at the store have whispered that it is truly the “best $100 you will ever spend.” Get a holiday glow with this facial treatment for $105 at The Cosmetic Market.
Housed on the lobby level of Noelle, Keep Shop is a boutique that boasts luxury items from Nashville artists and creators. Our friends at Lemon Laine have created a Hydrating Facial Oil exclusively for Noelle, made with marshmallow root and oatstraw-infused jojoba oil, frankincense, jasmine, neroli, evening primrose and rosemary antioxidant extract. This November, give your skin (and nose) the gift of this special serum! Find it for $65.
OI hand balm & body wash
This season, treat yourself (or someone else) to two products from the line that everyone is talking about: Davines. The OI hand balm, available for $21, will protect your hands from the harsh changing temperatures, while the $26 OI body wash will leave your entire body feeling super soft. Visit Shine Salon to snag these two products and book your end-of-the-year ‘do now!
FOR A SATURDAY
Disco cup (& wine slushie)
If you’ve ever enjoyed a wine slushie from Grinder’s Switch Winery, you know that these specially flavored frozen drinks are just the sweetest treats to add to your wine tasting experience. The crowd-pleasers are available for $3.29 per glass, but when you put them in one of these disco ball cups for a total of $11.99, you double the fun and walk away with a festive keepsake.
FOR THE HOLIDAYS (FINALLY!)
COLOR is fulfilling our holiday decor dreams! The Christmas tree meets the snow globe with this spectacular $45 piece. Powered by three AA batteries and standing at 13.5 inches, this bright light will illuminate your home for the holidays in the best way!
Holiday Goo Goo Cluster
In honor of TPAC’s White Christmas show opening November 13, everyone’s favorite Goo Goo Cluster brings us our newest holiday sweet obsession. The “White Christmas Premium” is a white chocolate shell filled with dark chocolate peppermint ganache, crushed chocolate sandwich cookies and peppermint nougat with a peppermint bark base. Get it online or in stores for $7.99 each through the end of the year and at TPAC concessions when you see White Christmas, November 13-18. A very merry (chocolate) Christmas indeed!
HiFi, a Nashville-based cookie company, brings you the sweetest indulgence via your favorite childhood foods (think Cocoa Krispies and Cosmic Brownies) in cookie form, each named after some of the biggest names in music. Order this “Fall Mixtape” assortment from SB Shop for $30 and enjoy four different flavors of 12 delicious, individually wrapped cookies. If you’re unable to travel to see everyone this season, send a box to your loved ones to tell them that someone from Nashville is thinking of them!
