Now we can’t imagine our tree without her.

Just as it is never too early to get that box of keepsake ornaments down from the attic, there is no such thing as having too many ornaments, either. So, if you’re in the tradition of getting a new one (or four) a year, we have just the place for you to check out. Nestled on New Orleans’ famed Magazine Street, between Octavia and Joseph, sits Hazelnut, a boutique filled with unique home goods and fantastic gifts. Owned by native son of New Orleans, Broadway and television star Bryan Batt, whom you may recognize from Mad Men, and his partners Tom Cianfichi and Katy Danos, Hazelnut is the spot to shop for all kinds of gifts when you find yourself in the Crescent City.

Over the weekend, a few items popped up on the shop’s Facebook page that we think are absolute must-haves for the holiday season.

 

Now, we have all the respect in the world for the late, great, Prince, but our eyes are on those two Southern icons on either side. How adorable are these Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson Christmas ornaments?

Hazelnut New Orleans

The caricature of our Smoky Mountain Songbird displays Dolly’s signature red lip and even fringe adorning her blue shirt. With Dolly on your tree, do you even need an angel on top? And that's not all. Your tiny, tree-sized Dolly could forever sing a duet of your favorite Christmas carol when you pair her with a Willie Nelson ornament. This festive trinket features Willie sporting his trademark braids and bandana across his forehead.

If you can’t get to New Orleans, you can order these snazzy baubles for just $24.00 each by calling the shop directly at 504.891.2424. Many of their regularly stocked items also make great gifts for your holiday list or for year-round hostess, birthday, thank you, or just because presents. You find all sorts of wonderful items on Hazelnut’s website here. Hazelnut even has a signature New Orleans Toile that is exclusive to the shop. We love the coasters, and this great guest towel.

Don’t delay, these treasures won’t be around for long. We think adding Dolly and Willie to your tree this year will add just the right Southern touch.
