Gifts That Bring a Taste of Arkansas

Posted on November 18, 2014 by Georgeanne Yehling | 2 Comments

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.

I didn’t realize the My Brothers salsa was an Arkansas product! We love that stuff!

And Bonta Toscana of course. :)

Fun post! I am always looking for things like this to send to ex-Arkansans. Do you know of places that package some of these together for you for mailing? Thanks!
