Northwest Arkansas Holiday Shopping Guide: Gifts with Local Flair


local-flair-rock-cityRock City Outfitters

Left: The “Call Me” t-shirt is one of the designs Rock City Outfitters is best known for, partly because you have to be a Hog fan to appreciate what those two words — “Call me” — really mean. This shirt is 100% cotton, unisex sizing, and so soft you’ll want to live in it 24/7. Cost is $26.99. Click here to see more or to order it.

Right: We love how the Homegrown Hoodie says so much without using words at all. Whether you were born in this state or have fallen in love with it and put down roots since you moved here, this shirt shows off your love for all things Arkansas. Cost is $34.99. Click here to see more or to order it.

Where to shop: Rock City Outfitters is an Arkansas company founded in 2008, selling primarily through its online shop, at select retailers throughout the state and at regional events. (They also do custom orders for groups and organizations, and they’re the company we asked to produce our Mom Prom t-shirts for the past 3 years… because they’re awesome.)

Left and Right: Some of the most memorable, special gifts to give or receive during the holidays are the ones that are truly personal. The pros at Scott Frame and Art can help you customize a one-of-a-kind framed memory — something like a jersey, tickets, program, pennant or a photo collage. We love these “Frame Your Game” Custom Shadowboxes featuring sports jerseys, which can either be mounted full-length or folded. (See examples above, left and right.) The reason we both have Scott Frame and Art frames in our own homes is because they have the largest selection in Northwest Arkansas and their framing experts make it so easy to pull a project like this together.

Center: There are so many beautiful places in Northwest Arkansas and so many amazing artists, which is why we love to browse the big selection of local art at Scott Frame and Art. They have Artist Originals and Fine Art Reproductions of special places in Northwest Arkansas. If you want to customize a gift of art for a friend or relative, the shop can produce these Fine Art Reproductions in a variety of sizes on canvas, fine art paper and photo paper. The example shown at center above is a Giclee on Canvas called “Crystal Bridges,” by local artist Jane Garrison-Davidian.

Where to shop: Scott Frame and Art has a location at 2603 W. Pleasant Grove Road in Rogers and another shop at 100 E. Joyce Blvd in Fayetteville.

Left: A bad hair day is no problem when you’ve got a cute hat with a little Arkansas pride on it.  This Charlie Southern Retro Arkansas Hat is only $28 and would be a great gift for an Arkansas girl.

Right: We adore this Charlie Southern Marble State Long Sleeve Tee. It’s a fun twist on Riffraff’s traditional state designs — with a marble motif! Proclaim your love for Arkansas, mamas! Cost is $36.
