The holidays are creeping up, and there might be a few special people left on your gift list. We recently featured local gifts under $50. This week, we’re focusing on more indulgent luxury items worth giving to that someone special — or merely dreaming of for yourself.
With items priced from $48 to over $7,000, this list highlights that splurges and swoons are available for a wide range of price points.
Here are this year’s splurge-worthy Luxe Loves, found in Nashville, … The Holiday Edition!
CLOTHING & ACCESSORIES
Everyone could use a fabulous statement bag during the season of holiday soirées. The EMILY is covered in ostrich feathers, lined in satin, and topped with statement handles. All your necessities will fit inside, and a detachable leather crossbody strap makes for easy hands-free styling. Find yours for $450 at Oak Hall.
Hemline has teamed up with fashion favorite Amanda Uprichard to create these exclusive Adora Pants available only at Hemline! Pair these showstopper pants with a flowy white blouse and flats, or a colorful sweater and booties for a versatile look. Fab details include a front seam slit, zippers, and the ability to machine wash. These need to be on your wishlist! They’re $216 at Hemline.
Belts are in, y’all! These B-Low the Belt options are classically colored to match any woman’s style. Loop them on jeans or trousers, or add a little flair to a long, colorful dress! Find yours from $140 to $156 at Emmaline in downtown Franklin.
New to Wedgewood-Houston’s May Hosiery Co-Op (and the talk of Nashville) is Modiste, a fashion showroom that houses some of the world’s coolest current designers and many you can’t find in-person anywhere close by. This aviator jacket by Nanushka is made of soft vegan leather and faux shearling to keep you warm and fashionable. We love the patch pockets, turn-up cuffs, and exposed seams. Find this iconic winter piece for $995 at Modiste.
Sunware wizards Bill Barton and Patty Perreira never cease to amaze us with their new designs and collaborations. Unlock your inner Bond with this limited-edition design that pays homage to the 1965 film, Thunderball. With a classic rectangular frame and polarized lenses, choose from four polished acetate colors — black, chestnut, champagne , and dusk. Find yours for $550 at Barton Perreira, and go by the Green Hills shop to try on lots of styles.
This classic satin shirt will take you through the seasons and the years. Tuck it in or leave it flowing over your favorite jeans or skirt. We love the plunging — but modest — neckline and the thick cuffed sleeves. Find yours for $298 at MODA Boutique.
Lucchese’s Elena style is a short seven-inch seamed bootie crafted from the softest suede and available in lots of rich colors. Perfect for the “casual cowgirl” and impressively rated, these boots are available at Lucchese for $395. Try them on in-store at their beautiful Gulch shop.

Emerald quartz platter
Combining luxurious natural emerald quartz with sterling silver, this platter by Anna Rablabs is the height of elegant tabletop d̩ecor.

Rubber feet underneath protect table surfaces from scratching. Find this at Epergne for $485.
The Rikki lantern is the ultimate lighting splurge. Playful stamped medallions against the hammered iron cage create a stunning contrast that will make any room feel elevated and abundant.
