A classic, eye-catching timepiece

A fine timepiece is the perfect Valentine’s gift and can offer years, even generations, of good use, reminding its recipient of your love with each turn of the wrist. From classic Swiss designs to British works of art, from incredibly affordable pieces to luxurious high-end products, Brentwood Jewelry’s selection of watches has something for everyone. A visit to our shop to see our collection for yourself will be just what you need to find the perfect gift for him.

An artisan hand-poured candle

For the past seven years, Southern Firefly Candle Co. has been bringing a bit of Southern charm into customer’s homes through their expertly curated luxury candles made locally in Nashville. Fragrances like Wild Iris, Indiana Honeysuckle and Grapefruit Mangosteen appeal to those who appreciate more romantic smells, while candles like Tobacco Barn and Campfire are made with a more masculine sensibility in mind. Or go for a Tennessee whiskey candle – whichever scent you choose, you won’t be sorry.

Brightside Bakeshop is all about spreading joy with their delectable small-batch artisan baked goods. Relatively new to the Nashville food scene, this little bakeshop produces sweet and savory brioche rolls, croissants and croissant rolls with seasonal flavors that change weekly. Last year’s special order Valentine’s box (hand-delivered!) contained chocolate covered strawberry, chocolate turtle and salted caramel pecan brioche rolls as well as their signature cinnaroll – we can’t wait to get our hands on this year’s goods.
