Ah, the holiday season. For some of us, that means traveling to our friends and family out of state for gatherings and fellowship. And you know that Mama always taught us to bring a gift when we come.
Why not bring one of these gifts to your host this holiday season (or any season, really?). Every single one of them features at least one Arkansas-made product. We've sorted them by occasion--they're sure to make holiday prep a little easier and bring a little taste of the Natural State to your host.
