Local Gift Guide 2022

by Kate Mazariegos

I’m so excited to finally write this post! The past couple of weeks, I have been talking with local shop owners and creators to put together a collection of gifts that you can shop from locally this holiday season! I met so many people, discovered many new-to-me local creators, and just had a great experience reaching out to the community. We have so many kind, talented people in Owensboro that are worthy of the extra time and energy it may take to buy local. I tried to include many price points and gifts for different ages and interests.

Below is the gift guide and links to all products available online to make it as easy as possible. If there is no link, they are easily discoverable on Facebook & Instagram. Also, I will be featuring each one of these businesses on my Instagram stories over the next month, their lovely shops, and other popular gifts available. If one thing was apparent when I was putting this guide together, it is that there is an abundance of local goods out there-it was so hard to pick just one! I ended up making one geared towards women, and one towards men.

Harlow & Co. Sweatshirt | Hampton & Co. Earrings | Kelly McClelland Art | Waverly by Amy Bellamy | Clay Formation Earrings | Bloom Box by Bloom with Bridget | Bubble Bee Designs OBKY Sticker | Puzzle from Meadowhouse Flower & Gifts | Ultimate Candle Co. Snow Day Candle | Jackie Blue Handmade Apple Watch Band | Hampton & Co. Mary Bracelet | Blend by Alex | Stemless Tortoise Glass at Julep Home & Gift | The Journals Prompt by Jessica Boarman | Clutch from Byron & Barclay | Pitcher from Walker Custom Ceramics | OBKY Kitchen Towel | Formation Clay Car Diffuser

And now for the men, though I know quite a few women that would enjoy some of these! A few items on this guide are not necessarily Owensboro-made, but all are Kentucky made.

Hide & Timber Hats | Blanton’s Reserve Bourbon | Clayton & Crume Mint Julep Coasters | Fulton & Roark Palmetto Solid Cologne | Hill View Farms Chipotle Habanero Sauce | Bourbon Barrel Char for Grilling | Italian Bergamot + Cedar Woods Candle | Woven Leather Ice Bucket and Cocktail Shakers with Tray | Brew Bridge 1947 Lager | Fleece Pulover at J.J. Fosters | Andria’s Candies Bourbon Balls

I hope you found this helpful and I hope you shop small for some of your Christmas gifts this year! Come back in a couple of weeks when I have the local host gift guide up—let hosts know you appreciate them! Thanks for reading!
