With the holidays quickly approaching you might want to look around town for some one-of-a-kind gifts. Shopping locally is a great way to support the small businesses of our friends and families who dedicate their livelihoods to providing beneficial services.
Memberships to Local Attractions
Many people are now interested in receiving experiences rather than material things. A membership to one of Pine Bluff’s local attractions is sure to delight anyone on your gift list. A membership is a gift that keeps on giving by being able to participate with a member’s discount for most of the events, classes and programs throughout the year.
The Arts & Science and Aquatic Centers offer memberships of varied levels and rates such as individual, age, groups, monthly and daily. Remember to pick up those King Cotton Classic Basketball tournament tickets while you are checking off your list.
Speaking of local attractions: The ARTSpace on Main has retail art, jewelry, cards and unique gifts all created by area artists. It is a great place to browse and be surprised by the items that catch your eye; things you didn’t know you needed until you see them.
The Arkansas Railroad Museum has a gift shop that offers just about everything railroad. They have postcards to select from that you might need to send those elementary students with their assignment of collecting a post card from all 50 states.
Delta Rivers Nature Center’s gift shop offers items the kids and the kids at heart in your family will love to have in their collection.
Gift Cards to Locally-Owned Eateries
Pine Bluff is full of flavor. Local restaurateurs have invested in our community, and they offer a vast array of cuisine. Keep in mind that many of our restaurants cater as well, so you can give yourself the gift of time by hiring a caterer during the holiday season. We have local restaurants that you can pick up a gift card or several for those family members or friends that are just as busy as you are and still need to eat.
