When visiting Nashville, hell over high water, I was making it to Draper James.

If you aren’t familiar, Draper James is Reese Witherspoon’s Southern inspired boutique and it’s freaking ADDDDOOOORABLE. Opening just over a year ago, Nordstrom has already picked up her clothing line! But going to her storefront in person is even better.

Every detail’s Southern perfection. They offer you sweet tea while shopping! Everything else is just as thoughtful. From blue and white ribbon price tags, to the painted wall mural, to the unique items they sell. It’s unlike any boutique you’ve ever seen.

If you ever go to Nashville, I highly recommend making your way to the store front. It’s an experience in itself and worth the destination! Plus the area is filled with coffee shops, home stores and restaurants. A great excuse to see a different part of town.

the best draper james gift ideas

red mittens || vintage toast rack || dog collar || linen cocktail napkins || ‘hello darlin’ loafers || ‘cheer’s ya’ll’ coasters || enclosure notes || red table runner || hat || boots || hair ties || vest



Support You Team In Style: No matter if you’re in high school, college, an alumni or a proud mama, support your favorite team in any color with these darling mittens! If you’re not a big jersey or t-shirt kinda gal, these allow you to wear whatever you want and still look supportive! Easy to store in your handbag, pop these on in a flash and they’ll keep you toasty warm too.

The Must Have Brunch & Desk Accessory: How is this even possible? Draper James says it perfectly. This vintage-inspired silver-plated toast rack makes brunch so much better. (Really—piled on a plate, toast gets soggy, but held separately in a rack it maintains its delicious crunchiness.) But this also makes a pretty piece on a desk as a display for stationery or as a holder for linen cocktail napkins. I actually found one at a garage sale and use it to organize our bills. If I’d known DJ had one, I would have bought it here! NOTE: this is sadly not available online but they have them in store! I bet if you gave them a ring they’re southern hospitality just might work in your favor.

Fashionable Doggie: Pretty sure every girl’s best friend needs this. Hey Larry, I’m looking at you. Woof!

Dress Up Your Cocktails: There’s just something about linen cocktail napkins that make even a Coca Cola look fancy!

Effortless Casual Chic: Sometimes we just need to be comfy. But we shouldn’t have to sacrifice looks for comfort. These slipper loafers let you have it all! I’d wear these to a tailgate, running errands, weekday dinners and so much more.

A Fun Hostess Gift: Add these cute coasters to a bottle of wine and you’ve got yourself an extra fun hostess gift. Cheers y’all!

Make Your Friends Smile: I adore these enclosure cards! Traditionally used inside of a gift, but also great for little notes of gratitude, a surprise in a packed lunch or in your sweetheart’s pocket!

A Stunning Tablescape in One Second: Every table looks more pulled together with a pretty table runner. Cut this one to fit your table or use it as gift wrap—the bows are already there, so why not? Plus, it’s made from recycled paper, so there’s no reason not to stock up! The red is PERFECT for the holidays and comes in blue too.

Guaranteed Great Hair Day: LOVE this hat – especially for Fall!

Jack Rogers Has Done It Again! I love how Draper James and Jack Rogers teamed up to make these classic cold-weather boots! It’s so hard to find boots that are both adorable AND waterproof! Here you are.

How To Style Your Pony Tail: These little hair ties are just a little something special and unexpected. How cute would these make for stocking stuffers?!

Fall Staple: A vest makes even your old sweatshirts look chic! If you don’t have one or in need of a new one, this one is darling! It’d go great with your mittens too.

Southern Fried T-Shirt: I picked up this t-shirt at the store! It’s so cute and comfy and all the girls working there were wearing it.
