Shop Local | Tennessee Gift Baskets from Maryville-Based Clover Hill Trading Co.

Summer is a time for celebrations...from weddings to baby showers, birthday festivities and housewarming parties. And there's nothing like a thoughtful gift to make a meaningful occasion that much more memorable.

I love finding new and unique gift options that make people feel special and I recently stumbled across an awesome local company with some great gift baskets.

Clover Hill Trading Co., based in Maryville, Tennessee, offers carefully curated gift baskets filled with local goodies that are sure to delight everyone who receives them.

Owner Stacey is an artist who believes there is nothing like receiving a gift filled with items crafted locally and I completely agree! And our region of East Tennessee has some incredible makers and artisans creating lovely wares.

Clover Hill Trading Co. baskets come in a variety of styles with products and goods for different occasions. Local potters, farmers, candle makers, coffee roasters, and apiaries have been carefully selected and sourced for these splendid baskets.

Joyful Morning Gift Basket | Clover Hill Trading Co. 

This gift basket is sure to get your morning started on the right foot. It has nearly everything you need for a "joyful morning" from locally roasted coffee to handcrafted pottery made right in East Tennessee. Yes, that's a mug from none other than McQueen Pottery, a favorite of mine whose wares grace the tables at Blackberry Farm and other fabulous eateries. 

This basket also includes wares from Knoxville Chocolate Co., Smokey Ridge Apiary, and Laurel Mountain Candles. 

This would be a perfect gift for a bride and groom to enjoy on their first morning as a married couple.

Clean Slate | Clover Hill Trading Co. 

This summer has been hot....and I'm not just talking about the weather. The real estate market in East Tennessee has been on fire with buyers competing for fewer homes than in many years.

But for those lucky folks who do manage to snag their dream home, why not give them a memorable housewarming gift?

There are plenty of other reasons to celebrate a clean slate...perhaps a new stage in life, a new job or a new way of thinking. This gift basket will help clean out the cobwebs (literally and figuratively) in style!

Gourmet Charcuterie | Clover Hill Trading Co. 

July is National Picnic Month and what better way to celebrate the occasion than with a really grand picnic? Clover Hill has you covered with their Gourmet Charcuterie gift basket.

Including tasty snacks from East Tennessee's Century Harvest Farms, plus fruit, local chocolate, goat cheese and more, this basket will make your mouth water.

There's no reason a gift can't be for yourself...so consider this awesome ready-made picnic for your next soiree!

Fireside | Clover Hill Trading Co. 

This might just be my favorite Clover Hill Trading Co. basket because it reminds me of another favorite of mine: fall. Cooler weather, crisp leaves and nights spent around a crackling fire. 

This basket includes everything you need to make your next fireside experience more delightful, starting with a wool blanket, kindling and matches, plus your very own s'mores kit. Add a bottle of wine and the locally made insect repellent, and you're all set. 

Perfect for your next romantic getaway! 

Clover Hill Trading Co. offers hand delivery within 30 miles of Maryville, TN and if you want to send a basket to someone who doesn't live nearby, there are shipping options available too. I have friends all over the country who would be tickled to receive these beautiful baskets...how about you?
