2018 Holiday Gift Guide
Looking for that perfect holiday gift? We have plenty of one-of-a-kind items to choose from in our Cheekwood Mansion Gift Shop and our brand new Garden Gift Shop! Stop by one of our gift shops when you’re here for Holiday LIGHTS to knock out some of your holiday shopping. Whether you’re looking for unique handmade jewelry or holiday goodies to display this season, we’re open year round to meet all your gift giving needs. Check out some of our highlights below for our favorite gifts of the 2018 holiday season!
Award winning textile artist, Erin Bassett, has transcended the art of jewelry making with her wearable silk accessories. Based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Erin Bassett Artistry sculpts, designs, and creates textile art for the home and body. In store you’ll find necklaces and lapel pins made with the finest colored silk. These gorgeous creations are made by boiling the silk to form permanent designs. The necklaces are made for style and comfort, and there are a multitude of options to choose from in our shop.
If metal is more your style, Sarah Cavender Metalworks has plenty of intricately formed pieces available. Sarah Cavendar uses a technique she developed that begins with screening brass, then treating and forming the mesh into beautiful creations. Each handmade item is plated or oxidized, finished by a process of hand painting with bronze powders in a base of lacquer, and then sealed. Our shop has a variety of Sarah’s pieces to choose from ranging from colorful floral necklaces to complex insect sculptures.
Our Lock and Key collection at Cheekwood has pieces you won’t find anywhere else! Tony Perrin, founder of Lock and Key, learned the art of bead weaving from an old family friend, and now brings a sense of modern eclecticism to a traditional form of artistry. Each piece is hand beaded, and many of his designs are loomed with the ball-and-chain interweaving technique. Additionally, Perrin uses a metal clay kiln to sculpt pieces specifically for Cheekwood. Many of our Cheekwood collection pieces use embossings of leaves found on property. Our Cheekwood exclusive Lock and Key collection would be the perfect gift for Cheekwood and nature lovers alike! Looking for more than just jewelry? Our shop offers key chains, cuff links, and tie clips too!
We also offer plenty of themed items to get you into the holiday spirit! You can never go wrong with a scented candle. For all the chefs in your life, we have plenty of kitchen items available in store. Check out our gleaming glass Christmas trees that will make the perfect addition to any holiday traditions!
Be sure to stop by one of our Cheekwood Mansion Gift Shops during your next visit! Both shops are open daily, and will be open each night during this year’s Holiday LIGHTS event starting November 23! Our mansion gift shop is located on the ground floor of the Cheekwood Mansion, and our Garden Gift Shop is located in the Frist Learning Center Courtyard, right across from Café 29 and next to the stables. From gardening gloves to wearable art, there’s something for everyone in the shop!
