Rogers, Arkansas is a gem. Downtown Rogers, Arkansas is a HUGE GEM. Lovingly referred to as “The Bricks” for the brick streets and buildings that compile to make this little corner of the world, downtown Rogers truly has so much to offer. Between the restaurants, the park/public areas, the stores, the businesses, etc. there is so much more to do and see here then might initially meet the eye. I took a deeper dive into exploring downtown and realized it was a perfect place to take care of ALL of my Christmas shopping for my friends and family. This post highlights several places on “The Bricks.” There are so many more places to get excellent holiday gifts besides these, but we will certainly highlight those another time. For now, let’s get to gifting!!
For the ladies and lads that love to whip up something in the kitchen, this one’s for you. Honeycomb Kitchen is your one stop shop for all things cooking related. I love the idea of giving an experience as a gift. Honeycomb offers cooking classes. The best way to do this is through a gift card that your loved one can then use to sign up for a class online. In addition, to cooking classes, I also was really loving there Christmas oven mittens as well as some of their jams and jellies! Honeycomb is truly adorable and I know where I’ll be going when I need to stock up my kitchen!
Everyone at some point in their life has wanted a bike for Christmas. Waking up, running downstairs, and seeing a bike under the Christmas tree, and test riding it in your pj’s is just a dream! GPP Cycling has bikes for all sizes, all styles, and all ages. They are also fully stocked with all of your biking accessories such as helmets, energy snacks, water bottles, sun glasses, etc. Give the gift of a bike this Christmas!
The gift of a book, a perfect gift for all ages and for either friends or families. Trolleyline Bookshop is stuffed to the brim with every kind of book you could imagine. From Nancy Drew to historical fiction to sci-fi and more, there is a book for everyone. Make it personal and write a little note inside the book to make it special for your to come!
The Dotted Pig
The Dotted Pig is the perfect place to shop for hostess gifts, neighbor gift exchanges, stocking stuffers, or for decorating your house. They have so many beautiful ornaments to choose from! The Dotted Pig also had these adorable Christmas lanterns that would be the perfect stocking stuffer for your little ones. One of my favorite pieces at the store was certainly the engraved utensils with such fun sayings on them. They were all so adorable I just don’t know how to choose!
Not sure what to get, give the gift of food! It’s really hard for pizza not to put a smile on someone’s face. Stop by The Rail, A Pizza Company, and grab a gift card or several for those friends in your life that you know could enjoy a night out with a slice of pizza in hand!
Brick Street Brew
Like I said before, I really love giving the gift of an experience. Make your own fun “night out” coupon or grab a gift card to Brick Street Brew. This is such a fun gift for a date with your man or lady, a gift to your parents to enjoy a night out, etc.
This Christmas let’s have a “Holiday on The Bricks” and shop downtown Rogers for all your gift giving needs. Thanks downtown Rogers for all your character and fun. Shop local and Merry Christmas!
Huge thanks to the lovely and local photographer of all these pictures, Candace Woesch! Go check out my previous post on her as well as book her for all your holiday photo sessions and beyond.
