Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide: What's Hot in 2018

It's inevitable, last minute shopping happens to the best of us. Time is running out before Christmas celebrations, and you haven't found all of your gifts yet! Luckily, we have put together a last minute gift guide with popular options from local shops in Murray, KY just in time for the holidays.

Maple Street Market Goods

The shelves at Maple Street Market are full of Kentucky Proud items sure to please a "shop local" enthusiast. Located in Downtown Murray, gift options include Spring Valley Jams, Inky Squid Handmade soaps, handcrafted pillows and jewelry!

Buff City Soap

For the skin lovers: the newest addition to town, Buff City Soap, is a plant-based soap company that hand makes the soap on site. The pride they take into each product shows with the quality and variety of scents to choose from. They can customize products with your favorite scents, and you can even make your own face masks! Find other gifts like bars of soap, bath bombs, body scrubs and so much more. Gift sets are also available for purchase!

Red Bugs' "The Locals"

Aside from having beautiful, quality yarn available at your fingertips (no pun intended), Red Bug has a hidden secret. The beloved yarn and crafts store in town also sells other handcrafted items through an area in the back of their store called "The Locals." Featuring a wide array of items from local crafters, we are positive that your last minute gift can be found here!

Holiday Farmers Market

Your favorite summer vendors from the Murray Downtown Farmers Market came back during the holidays to fulfill those last minute gift needs. Items ranging from doll clothing, handmade jewelry, wood signs, and ceramic pieces are all available. Saturday, December 15 is the last day for the market and the hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., so don't miss it! The market is located right next to Mugsy's Hideout in Downtown Murray.
