Left: We’re betting your people don’t have this! Isn’t it cool? It’s a Himalayan Salt Plate with a stand that’s made in Northwest Arkansas. This beautiful, pink slab of salt was originally mined in the Himalayas, then hand-crafted down to individual cooking plates. The owners at Honeycomb said cooking food on salt plates actually uses less salt than when cooking with ground salt, and imparts a rich, subtle flavor you can’t get anywhere else. Use it on the grill or even freeze it to serve cold foods.  If your gift recipient enjoys hosting dinner parties, they can allow guests to cook their own food right at the table when you purchase the locally hand-crafted black walnut serving stand.  The stands are made in Rogers, by artisan wood designer Don DeSpain. Each stand is one-of-a-kind.  8×8 salt plate $29.99, 8×8 serving stand $85

Right: Rise and grind! Skip the waste and get your caffeine fix in style with Presse by bobble. The 2-piece stainless steel coffee press brews delicious coffee in just 3 minutes.

Cooking classes at Honeycomb Kitchen Shop: Honeycomb also offers a wide range of cooking classes in a fully-functioning kitchen located right in their store. Wouldn’t a cooking class be a grand gift to give someone who has everything?  Honeycomb works with local culinary talent to host unique classes. They’ve done all kinds of classes already since opening this year, including pizza making, wine and cheese pairing, local cuisine, and even mixology classes. A gift certificate to one of their classes is a great gift for anyone interested in food and cooking. Or? We’ll just say it: a gift to yourself! Wouldn’t a cooking class be a fun date night or night out with friends? Classes typically range from $35-$50 per person.

Where to shop: Honeycomb Kitchen Shop is located at 213 W. Walnut St., in Historic Downtown Rogers.

Community Creative Center

Painting, pottery wheel & other classes for the grown-ups: Some people are harder to buy for than others. They don’t need one more “thing” to cram into their houses — or more to the point, they don’t need one more thing to dust! That’s where gifts like classes come in. Community Creative Center is not just for kids (although they have some awesome classes and workshops to the littles, too). Maybe your mom, or your friend, or your friend’s mom has always wanted to learn to paint or throw pottery. See? Perfect gift. And it doesn’t collect dust.

Art parties for the grown-ups: CCC also has parties just for the grown-ups. Within walking distance of Dickson Street in Fayetteville, Community Creative Center is the ideal spot to gather some friends and come play in the clay. Party prices include instruction, supplies, and light refreshments for each. CCC’s adult art parties are perfect for occasions like Girls’ Night Out, birthdays, anniversaries and reunions. The group can make a mug, work on the pottery wheel, make chip & dip platters and more.

Community Creative Center’s location: 505 W. Spring St., Fayetteville
