If, like us, you really believe that Tennessee is "America at its best", you might like some of our gifts to ease your homesickness for Tennessee or help someone in need to feel better.

There are plenty of cities that are known by their international airport code, although Nashville's BNA might not be so well-known outside of Tennessee.

Available in black, navy, charcoal or burgundy, these unisex hats are a great way to stay in touch with your home state.

Fans of Finnleys will love our Finnleys mugs. Featuring the Finnleys logo, it's a great way to support a local Tennessee business and remind yourself of home. Everyone can always use a mug, whether you use it to drink hot chocolate, coffee or maybe wine when you can't find a clean glass. The other great thing about our solid mugs is that 100% of the sales goes to one of the charities we choose. That's currently the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which is perfect for our pretty, pink mugs. Not only will you be thinking of home as you sip from your new mug, but you can also feel all warm inside because you're supporting a good cause.
Buying a gift for someone who's homesick for Tennessee but unsure what they would like?

If you know someone who loves Finnleys but you know she's picky about gifts, or you're wary about buying her something that doesn't fit, a gift card can solve both those problems.
Feeling homesick can be tough to deal with. Sometimes you just want to jump on the first flight home or get in your car and start driving.
