Where to Shop for Last-Minute Christmas Gifts in Jackson County

Experience Jackson Logo

We don’t need to be the ones to tell you Christmas is around the corner, because it’s plastered in every ad, on every social media platform, and probably keeps you up at night, thinking “I’m SO close to getting my Christmas shopping done,” or “I haven’t even STARTED Christmas shopping yet!” We’ve got you covered. Ditch browsing through various categories on Amazon and shop locally this Christmas! Jackson County small businesses have you covered.

For the person whose gift needs one final touch…

Maybe the gift you got for your loved one is *almost* perfect and just needs one final, personal touch. There are plenty of stops in downtown Jackson that will, quite literally, tie it up with a bow. Jackson Candle Company has handcrafted candles, cocktail kits, and more! Who doesn’t like to light a cozy candle in the winter?! Farm Sudz is also a fantastic option when it comes to those last-minute add-ons. Not only do they have handmade goat milk soap, but they also have skincare, hand cream, and even some gift for your furry friends!

Perhaps you’re shopping for the coffee lover in your life. Since they can never have to much, gift them with coffee beans from some of our local coffee roasters! Jackson Coffee Company is selling bags of their house-roasted beans, which will surely start any Scrooge’s morning off right.

For the person who deserves a treat…

A bottle of wine is a classic holiday gift, but why not make it a bit more personal by shopping at one of Jackson’s local wineries? Cherry Creek Cellars is now offering gift baskets, which can be customized for the wine lovers in your life. What pairs best with wine? Chocolate, of course, or better yet, candy! Jackson Candy and Fudge Factory has plenty of holiday goodies that make for the perfect stocking stuffers. Whether you’re going with decadent fudge or nostalgic treats, Jackson Candy and Fudge Factory has something waiting for you.

For the person who loves hosting…

We all have that one friend or family member that’s always hosting the holiday parties, the game nights, or the girls’ nights. That person would much appreciate another platter or board to add to their spread. Crimson Oak Wood Co. has a plethora of beautifully crafted boards that anyone would be proud to own. Crimson Oak also works with select vendors that curate beautiful homeware that will add beautifully personalized touches to any home.

For the person who doesn’t want more stuff

There may be someone in your life who could do without more things, or simply doesn’t want more gifts this year. We all still want our loved ones to get that warm, fuzzy feeling when they receive the perfect gift, so consider donating to a charity or nonprofit in their name. Maybe there’s a cause that hits close to home with them or an organization whose mission resonates with them. Make a donation in their name, then write it in a card for them to open on Christmas. They’ll still feel whole and grateful, but not because of an object or thing.

For the person who needs a staycation…

The holidays are hectic, and the loved one in your life is due for a night away. New Year’s Eve plans often get pushed to the wayside when all your focus lands on Christmas. Give someone something to look forward to this Christmas and book a local hotel room through Experience Jackson’s Bus with Us program on New Year’s Eve. Experience Jackson is sponsoring a free shuttle service to and from Jackson County hotels and downtown Jackson on New Year’s Eve. A night out, while celebrating safely and responsibly, is just what your loved ones need after a jam-packed holiday season.

Merry Christmas, from the Experience Jackson Team!
