How To: Last Minute Airport Holiday Gift Guide

How To: Last Minute Airport Holiday Gift Guide

The holidays are about being around the ones you love and gift giving is what keeps them around. (Totally kidding. Kind of.) Flying around the holidays is a nuisance but luckily airports essentially double as a mall where you can purchase the last few items on your shopping list.

We have curated a gift guide based on the shops in the Nashville International Airport; however, it can also work as a template for other airports!

How To: Eat Healthy for the Holidays at BNA

How To: Eat Healthy for the Holidays at BNA

The holidays are upon us and, unfortunately (or not), so are gluttonous meals and desserts. Strict diets and cleanses have their place in January, but balance is still important leading up to the Holiday Season. We’re #thankful for the sweets at the Thanksgiving table, but we’re eating healthy while traveling through the Nashville International Airport. Here are some ideas:

Fresh-Squeezed Juice, Berry Field Bistro (Concourse C):

Choose one of their creations or blend your own healthy juice. Ingredients include Apple, Beet, Kale, Carrot, Spinach, Swiss Chard, Cucumber, Celery, and Ginger.

Egg White Omelet, Gibson Cafe (Concourse C):

A gluten free omelet with tomatoes, spinach, pepper jack cheese, and a baby green salad. Healthy without sacrificing flavor!

Yogurt & Granola, Gibson Cafe (Concourse C):

This antioxidant-loaded breakfast of Greek yogurt and seasonal berries will leave your appetite satisfied and your skin glowing (well, we can hope).

Oh Kale! Smoothie, Freshens Smoothies & Yogurt (A/B Food Court):

This smoothie has one and a half servings of greens and tastes like mango and pineapple. Substitute the mango sorbet for Greek yogurt and add protein powder for a more filling drink.

The Cobb, Berry Field Bistro (Concourse C):

A protein-packed salad to keep you full and energized through your flight and away from the baked goods. Leave off the bacon and blue cheese crumbles to keep it healthy.

How To: Self-Guided Luxurious Tour of BNA

How To: Self-Guided Luxurious Tour of BNA

Airports can be an uncomfortable experience, we get it. You just want to get from point A to point B and there is often lots of waiting in between. However, with a change of perspective and planning, you can have a luxurious experience before your next flight out of the Nashville International Airport. [For other airports check out our Airport Guide]

Vino Volo (Concourse C)

Begin your experience at Vino Volo – a quiet and upscale restaurant to unwind after security. Pick out a wine and ask an employee which food pairing he or she recommends. As long as it is in a plastic cup, you can bring your wine
to the next location.

Massage Bar (Concourse C)

Once you’re finished eating, take your Vino Volo wine to the Massage Bar, where professionals are waiting in a relaxed environment to pamper you. Don’t forget to pick out a spa gift on the way out.

Insider Tip: At this point, you may want to stop by Vino Volo again to refill your cup.
Just sayin’.

Nashville Nails & Salon Center (Concourse C)

Feeling relaxed from your massage, it’s time for Nashville Nails & Salon Center. Didn’t have time the week leading up to your trip for a haircut or wax? False. Nashville Nails & Salon Center offers waxing, barber, and hair care services for men, women, and children. You’ll be rolling off the plane freshly groomed.

SGH Sunglass Hut (Concourse C)

Speaking of vacation, did we hear your son used your sunglasses in his last Houdini skit and they never reappeared? Don’t settle for the ill-fitting drug store pair you’ve had for eight years (how come those never go missing?) and purchase a new pair at SGH Sunglass Hut. You deserve it. Although, we do suggest keeping the new shades high above kids’ reach.

Godiva (Concourse B)

Sadly your flight has started boarding and your pampering tour is coming to an end. Hold onto that last bit of luxury by purchasing some Godiva chocolate for your flight.

Nashville Haunted Houses

Nashville Haunted Houses

One visit to Instagram will surely remind you: ‘Tis the season of pumpkin patches, flannel, and fall foliage. But it is also the season of cobwebs, gory creatures, and ominous sounds. If you’d rather spend your Saturday getting spooked than at the orchard, we have you covered. There are plenty of haunted sites and attractions in the Nashville area that will test your limits. Trust us, every location we mention below does its job. Gone are the days of spending $20 for your school’s 45-second haunted house, featuring the drama club’s fall production understudies.

Insider Tip: If you value your feet and overall safety, wear comfortable closed-toed shoes. And please do not bring the child you are babysitting to any of these sites. Missing out on social plans sucks, but so does explaining to your neighbors why their son is suddenly afraid of the dark.
