Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogues, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of merchandise at Knoxville Soap, Candle, & Gifts.
This charming gift shop lathers happy feelings with an array of all-natural products made by local artists and artisans. Melt a sweetheart's heart by surprising her with a piece of hand-crafted jewelry (starting at $24) or guiding her to a seat beside a new flickering candle ($8–$16). Chocolate-cake and brownie-scented candles help to seduce noses lacking their own teeny ears for romantic sonnets, and luxurious bath salts ($10) and sugar scrubs ($22) transform regular tubs into tongue-tickling vats of sweet-and-savory soup.
Knoxville Soap, Candle, & Gifts
More than 20 local artisans gather to display their handmade wares at Knoxville Soap, Candle, & Gifts. Their all-natural, bar- or ball-shaped soaps are fully biodegradable and made in Tennessee. Handmade candles give off sweet scents such as cupcake, brownie, and chocolate cake, recreating the smells of a baker's warm kitchen or nightly bath in leftover batter. Upon request, staffers can wrap these and other gifts—such as earrings, necklaces, and scarves—in complimentary wrapping paper any day of the year.
