Choose a local gift that will make your host feel special.

With the holiday season upon us, calendars are filled with parties and gatherings. Whether you are invited to a Friendsgiving or holiday cocktail party, it’s always a good idea to thank the gracious host or hostess with a gift.

Coffee Beans | Yanis Coffee Zone

Have a hostess that is constantly on the go? Coffee beans from a favorite, local coffeeshop provide a thoughtful and warm gift.

Popcorn Party Mix | Ready Popped

With a variety of flavors from loaded baked potato and caramel zebra to the classic kettlecorn, a popcorn party mix makes the perfect hostess gift. And if you really want your gift to pop, you can have the popcorn put into one of their seasonal tins.

Flowers | River City Florist

A beautiful gift for any home, flowers are great for all seasons, and a silk arrangement can become a favorite decoration for years to come. A holiday array with red poinsettias and holly is a perfect gift during the Christmas season.

Growler of Beer | Last Flight Brewing Company

For a beer lover, a growler of handcrafted beer is a unique and reusable gift. Get a classic glass growler or a thermal growler when you visit. Have fun choosing from different flavors like Belgian Dubbel, Raspberry Sour, or one of the latest seasonal flavors.

Playing Cards Set | Historic City of Jefferson

For those hosts who love game night, bring a deck of cards. These special playing cards combine fun and history by showing photos and information about Local Landmark Award recipients throughout Jefferson City.

Candles | Southbank Gift Company

Featuring 31 individual streets or neighborhoods to pick from, these candles are a unique and personalized gift. If they don’t have the street you are looking for in store, you can request a personalized order.

Jarred Items | Dogwood Vintiques

Jarred items like Honeysuckle Acres’s Cinnamon-Creamed Honey from Dogwood Vintiques provides a tasty, and locally produced, gift — perfect for a hostess with the mostest.
