The house is decorated. Cards are in the mail. And you’re already on track to meet your annual caloric intake of hot chocolate and peppermint bark. But in all the merriment of the season, you fa-la-la forgot to knock out that shopping list.
Don’t worry. You can still have yourself an Arkansas-made holiday with these affordable and locally sourced gifts:
Often referred to as “Arkansas’ own Chihuly,” James Hayes’ delicately crafted blown glass pieces make a beautiful statement in any home.
Lambrecht Gourmet Tins
With glazed pecans and four toffee flavors to choose from, Lambrecht’s gift tins are perfect for any sweet tooth or snacker on your list.
Loblolly Hot Cocoa

‘Tis the season for procrastinating. This year, forget the last-minute scramble by picking up one of these Arkansas-made gifts (all of which are available at Tipton & Hurst) before your holiday festivities begin.
