  1. I bought a small magnet photo board a couple of years ago that says “My Favorite Things” across it. It is in my kitchen and holds pictures of my sweet little ones. I love it!

  2. Wow! Thanks for the opportunity!! I will be buying many presents no matter what!

  3. I purchased scented soaps for a hostess gift! Enjoyed shopping at all the booths!

  4. I have never been before but I am looking forward to checking out all of the booths this year! My Brother-in-law is on my hard to buy for list!!

  5. I haven’t been to the boutique show before, but I’m incredibly excited!!! I am hoping to find gifts for all my 13-year old, picky daughter, Mindy. She’s not easy to buy gifts for anymore!

  6. My mother-in-law is hard to buy for. IF she wants something, she just buys it herself.

  7. Just need new fresh ideas for gifts, and love to be able to give unique or hand crafted items.

  8. I have bought soaps for teacher gifts in the past. And last year my Mom bought my son a rubber band gun for Christmas. He still loves it!

  9. At the last boutique show, I just looked as I was newly pregnant and didn’t know the gender quite yet. I’m excite to go this year because I have a great two year old that LOVES fun clothing and accessories!!

  10. I have to say the hardest person on my list are my two neices. They are 16 &15, and VERY picky. They like “preppy” but unique things. So unique sometimes means peace signs, tey-tye, patchwork, and these are things that they aren’t a fan of, so I owuld love to find something for them maybe for their room, for Christmas that will make them go “AWESOME!”…..goodness knows I haven’t heard that since they were about 5! LOL!

  11. My father-in-law and mother-in-law are the hardest to buy for. I am excited to see what they have!!

  12. been waiting on this show since last years!!! can’t wait to do some christmas shopping!

  13. I would love to go boutiquing with my new Daughter in law. I have raised 4 boys and now have a beautiful young lady to share with!!!!

  14. Definitely my mother-in-law. She doesn’t decorate house much, doesn’t dress up much (mostly sweats and t-shirts) but she does like to cook and entertain some. So maybe I might find a cookbook or a nice serving tray? This is my first trip to the NWA Boutique Show and I’m coming all the way from Clarksdale MS to attend. SO EXCITED!!!

  15. I have not been to a show, we recently moved to NWA. I’d say my mother-in-law is hard to shop forbut by looking @ the pics posted I’m confident I can find something!!

  16. I would like to enter the drawing for the gift certificates to the Boutique this weekend.

    The hardest people to buy for is my mom and my mother in law. Why? For different reasons. My own mother has no hobbies, and does not shop for herself often. It is hard to identify a real style that she goes for. As for my mother in law, she has so much. So I am often looking for fun and unique gifts for both of them.

  17. Since my husband died several years ago I buy myself something special for my birthday and Christmas….he always was good at picking me something unique as a gift. Never been to the NWA before but plan on buying myself something and putting it under the tree from myself….the difficulty will be making the choice of what special gift to buy.

  18. I bought a very cute bedside table for my niece last year at the boutique show.

  19. My sister is the hardest to shop for! She isn’t the most girly girl but she does like having unique pieces of jewelry and clothes so I’m hoping by going to the boutique show I’ll find the perfect thing for her.

  20. So many cute things from that show…how about my turquoise owl bookends that are just perfect!

  21. I’ve never been to a boutique show before, but would love to attend! My mother is definitely the hardest to buy presents for.

  22. SOOO curious about this event! Never been before, and really want to this year. Working on coaxing a friend to join me! — my parents are the hardest to gift. Mom is very crafty, so I’m hoping to find some inspiration here!!!! (and sneak in a couple things for myself).

  23. At the last boutique show I was pregnant. My mother-in-law bought be a cute little handmade burp cloth, it is currently one of my favorites! 🙂

  24. Last year I was a vendor and a shopper. This year only shopping and have no doubt I’ll find it all at the show. It’s going to be a totally “handmade” Christmas at our house this year!

  25. I’ve never been to the event but I’m hoping to find a gift for my mother-in-law who is So hard to please! Haha

  26. The last time I attended the show I purchased some very cool headbands for my daughter. They have alot of neat things out there!

  27. The hardest people to buy for is probably the mom’s. Mine and the hubby’s. Never know what to get. Always wanting to get them the best.

  28. I think my grandma is the hardest person to buy for – she has everything she needs.

  29. My sister is by far the hardest person to buy for…she has everything, and is a picky purchaser. 🙂

  30. I’ve never been to a boutique show, but if I won I would shop for my sister-in-law. She is definitely the hardest to shop for on my list!

  31. We went to last years boutique show and my friend bought some really cool razorback novelty items. My other friend is hard to buy for and she really wants a chalkboard from there so I would love to WIN for her!

  32. This would be my first trip to this boutique show! I am always looking for that unique outfit for my girls or something sporty for my son!

  33. I bought these great elastic beaded bracelets at the last boutique show I went to. I wear them all the time.

  34. I love the boutique show! I bought beautiful jewelry from Jenny Mooney and her ADDITION collection at the Maude booth. I wear it all the time!

  35. I’ve never been. I would love to find something for my dad, who is so difficult to shop for.

  36. I bought a cute little owl lamp last year for my daughter’s nursery. I love it & I love the Boutique Show!

  37. I loved the car trash bags they had last year. So much nicer than the grocery sacks I’ve used in the past.

  38. My brother is the hardest to buy for!!! I’ve never been to this show, looking forward to going!!

  39. my sister is hardest to buy for. She owns her own shop in Florida. I dont think Ive ever been to this show.

  40. my sister is hardest to buy for. She owns a store in Florida. I don’t think Ive ever been to this show.

  41. I enjoyed the boutique show so much last year! We bought my toddler a “monster” hooded towel and he still uses and loves it!!

  42. Girls afternoon out this year! Last year I bought my daughters first Christmas ornament! It was so special!!!

  43. The hardest person to buy for on my list would be my Mom… she has everything… but I hope to get her something great this year… (I say that every year!!)


  44. Last year I purchased a super cute pink Christmas tree for my nieces room – she LOVED it so much she kept it up until the lights went out!

  45. I have never been. I would love to find something for my daughter – not so easy to buy for but that purse from Keep It Gypsy looks right up her alley!!!

  46. I have not been to the NWAboutique show. It would be a great opportunity to buy my mother – in – law and sister in laws gifts. They are so hard to buy for. Its fun to shop at the craft shows to find just the perfect thing. It looks like a lot of fun.

  47. There was a great booth last year with adorable t-shirt necklaces. I’d love to win!

  48. I have never been to the show but would love to go! The hardest person for me to buy for is my mother in law! I struggle with what to get her every year!

  49. Last year I went to the show and bought these adorable necklaces for my nieces. They loved them!

  50. A couple of years ago I bought this fabulous little clock made out of a CD. I love it because it is small enough to be placed just about anywhere.

  51. I’ve never been to the show before…but one of the hardest people to shop for, in my family, is my father in law. Seriously. He’s got everything he could ever need/want already!

  52. I have never been, but looks like a fantastic shopping event! My hardest shopper is my step-daughter!

  53. The person on my Christmas list that is the hardest to buy for is my Mom. She needs for nothing and if she wants something she buys it, therefore making any sort of gift buying a difficult decision.

  54. I Love the show! I loved the cute Christmas advents from a couple years ago, as well as the purses and jewelry! There’s lots of fun Arkansas stuff too- can’t go wrong with HOG STUFF!!

  55. I bought some super cute necklaces for my daughters and nieces at the show last year.

  56. My first year to the show – looking forward to buying gifts for myself!

  57. The hardest people to buy for are the ones that already have everything! That’s when shows like these come in handy.

  58. My mom is the hardest person to buy for… She has everything… So it results in Gift cards to her favorite places. Which isn’t as fun for me!

  59. I’ve bought name plaques for both my girls’ doors and now i need one for my son’s.

  60. I have wanted to go to this for the past 2 years!! My husband is so hard to shop for!!! I am thinkin something Razorback!

    🙂 Thanks!!

  61. I lI’ve looking for unique jewelry. My mom is so hard to shop for, but I can usually find something at these events.

  62. I think the hardest person for me to shop for is my dad. It seems like he has everything, do it’s hard to pick out something.

  63. i bought the CUTEST Razorback dress for my daughter 2 years ago and would love to find another one this year!

  64. Can’t wait to go! My daughter has a friend that loves unique jewelry, so I know Christmas will be super easy this year!

  65. I haven’t been to a boutique show before sooo… the hardest person to shop for on my list is my Dad. He’s usually interested in the big electronic things that are out of the Christmas budget range, and he doesn’t have many hobbies! After 30 years I think I’m officially out of ideas now!

  66. I bought a cute A line Razorback football dress for my daughter. She still wears it!

  67. I bought the cutest metal headband from one of the vendors last year. I wear it all the time!

  68. My Grandma is the hardest to buy for. At a certain age, I suppose some people just have all they ever wanted, would be fantastic to find the gift that makes her pause.
