Keep Sevierville, Tennessee close to your heart and top of mind with a special souvenir. With so many shopping opportunities from outlets to boutiques, brand name to one-of-a-kind shops, souvenir options abound, whatever your interests or budget. To help you narrow down the search, here’s a dozen of our current favorites.
Apple butter from the Apple Barn Cider Mill & General Store. The taste destination’s signature creation is homemade right on the farm. Hovering somewhere between the consistency of applesauce and preserves, it’s a tasty way to jazz up toast or biscuits. While shopping, you might also want to grab some applesauce, apple cider, apple cider vinegar, apple spice cake mix, and/or fresh apples for more at-home enjoyment.
Coffee milk from Cruze Farm Dairy. Treat yourself to a waffle cone or other ice cream treat while you’re in Sevierville, but peek inside the display refrigerator on the right before reaching the cashier. It’s filled with several sizes of bottled whole milk, buttermilk, chocolate milk, and coffee milk. Grab several of every variety to enjoy at home, but latte lovers will want to triple-up (at least) on the scrumptious coffee milk.
Fabric from The Cherry Pit Quilt Shop, where nestled among the yards of solids and prints, pre-cut charm packs and jelly rolls, kits and notions, you’ll find some cotton panels showcasing the Great Smoky Mountains that can be made into a wall hanging or quilt. Need patterns, thread, scissors, fat quarters? It’s all here.
Moonshine from Shine Girl, a new distillery helmed by Danielle Parton, a combat veteran and pilot who also happens to be Dolly’s niece. Drawing on her family’s distilling history and her own palate, Parton uses honey, sugar, or molasses in recipes to achieve a smooth taste. Flavors like red velvet, coconut, rose, and lavender are among the temptations.
Knife from Smoky Mountain Knife Works. The “world’s largest knife showplace” sells just about every kind of sharp edge imaginable from camping knives to superhero blades. For something truly unique, forge your own blade from a railroad spike or threaded bolt at neighboring Uncle Hank’s Knives.
Note cards from the Robert A. Tino Gallery feature works by one of the most celebrated artists in the Southeast. Cards are available year-round depicting a variety of scenes inspired by the Smoky Mountains and Sevierville area, from barns to bears, flowers to fireflies, landscapes to fantasies. A new Christmas design is released each holiday season.
Replica Great Smoky Mountains National Park trail signs at Ogle Brothers General Store look like the real thing, with options like Laurel Falls, Gregory Bald, Chimney Tops, Middle Prong, and a variety of other trails. It’s a great way to commemorate your favorite hiking trail. The store’s park collection also includes wheel-thrown pottery trail mugs and locally made, hand-poured candles with park-inspired scents like “Leaves of the Smokies.”
Scented candle from Smell of the Smokies. At this shop you can pour your own candle in a glass jar and pick a scent like “Cozy Cabin.” Label it “Best Vacation Ever” and whenever it’s lit let the aroma carry you back to Dolly Parton’s hometown.
Raw mountain honey from Five Oaks Farm Kitchen may or may not cure what ails you but it will certainly taste delicious whether it’s stirred into a hot toddy or drizzled atop biscuits. Add a jar of Greenbrier Bee Company honey to your breakfast, lunch, or dinner order at this Southern-style eatery.
Bracelets from Loralei’s phonetically express the Southern pronunciation of both “App uh latch uh” and “Su veer vull,” mixing style with fun. These locally made bracelets combine hand stamped metal with brown or black genuine leather. Prefer all metal? There’s also a hand-stamped “App uh latch uh” necklace and one shaped like Tennessee that says “Home.”
Stickers from Chubby’s Deli range from serious, “Great Smoky Mountains TN” to advertorial “Chubby’s Restaurant Home Cookin’ Sevierville TN” to aspirational “Be More Like Dolly” and “What Would Dolly Do?” With a wide array of colors, sizes, and sayings, surely at least one will catch your eye.
Stuffed axolotl from Rainforest Adventures. The attraction’s Amazon Traders gift shop carries zoological themed items sourced worldwide, many of which are handmade and sustainable. We’re partial to the plushies, especially the adorable axolotls—who can resist cuddling a salamander that looks like a tadpole?
