Holiday Shopping Ideas

JONESBORO, AR -- With Christmas less than a month away, many are looking for creative Christmas presents for their loved ones.

There are many people in the area that have home businesses, making everything from jewelry and accessories to pieces of art.

"I have a home business and all of these other women have home businesses and its just a great way for us to get together and sell our things," said Reagan McNeil.

Finding the perfect gift can be hard, but there are several home businesses who may have what you're looking for.

"Edith's jewelry definitely is unique, and my paper products you can't find anywhere else in town," said McNeil.

This Christmas I'm making a lot of personalized ornaments and personalized wall hangings for doors with families names on them," said designer Lane McKinley.

Another gift idea you may not have thought of is the gift of pottery.  Art and Soul in downtown Jonesboro features hand painted pieces that would be a great and unique gift.

For that person who has everything there's the gift that keeps on giving, Pampered Chef.

"We have things for enthusiastic cooks like forged cutlery or cookware.  Everybody loves our stoneware, even if they just cook slice and bake cookies or frozen pizza.  You can even buy entertaining and serving pieces for people who don't cook," said Amy Livers.

Many of the designers and business owners already have many of the items ready for purchase.  The extra touch of personalization can take a few minutes or a few days.
