Gifts with Local Flair in Northwest Arkansas

Hello Local

Left: Hello Local’s Exlusive Northwest Arkansas Latte Mug

When we visited the Hello Local store in Downtown Springdale, we fell in love with this latte mug! You know how some mugs are just the perfect size and feel just right in your hand? This is it. It’ll get you plenty caffeinated for the day, and it’s perfect for anyone who loves coffee, hot tea, hot cocoa or Northwest Arkansas. (This would also be a lovely gift to send home with any relatives who are visiting Northwest Arkansas for the holidays!) Cost is $16. Click here for more info or to order online.

If you’d like to give some local coffee with this mug, ask for the “NWA Coffee Tour Gift Box.” Not only does it include our new favorite mug, it also contains 7 two-ounce bags of whole bean coffee from some of our area’s favorite coffee roasters, including Arsaga’s, Kennedy Coffee, Mt. Comfort Coffee and more. Cost for the Coffee Tour Gift Box is $36. Click here for more info.

Right: Pack Your Own Local Gift Box

With the goal of becoming a one-stop-shop for everything local, Hello Local’s Downtown Springdale store is packed with local products from more than 40 Northwest Arkansas small businesses.

To help make gifting local easy, the store will provide a free, fully-printed gift box for customers to fill with goodies that include items like local mugs, coffee, chocolate, jewelry, candles, t-shirts, sipping chocolate and more. Create a personalized gift that’s affordable and fully local from our friends at Hello Local. The retail price on the “Pack Your Own Local Gift Box” varies based on what you choose to include in the box, which makes it a great way to fit it into any gift-buying budget.

Give the gift of good taste with Fresh Harvest, a Northwest Arkansas favorite. Fresh Harvest Tasting Room (which just opened a new location in Rogers) offers the freshest ultra-premium extra virgin olive oils from around the world, fused and infused olive oils, gourmet oils, barrel-aged balsamic vinegars of every flavor you can imagine, gift packs, pasta, sauces, olives and more. Over 90 items to taste and explore, and it’s all organic. Oils and Balsamics range from $13 – $28. Gift packs and flights range from $10 – $55.

Pasta, gluten free pasta and sauces cost $6.99 to $9.99. Spanish olive varieties are $9.50. You can also find a wide range of accessories starting at $9.

The difference is amazing.)
