Make it a Kansas Christmas!

A friend had the question. What to give the son-in-law? He lives in another state and will be back from Afghanistan by the time he gets the holiday goods.

Here was her great solution which was prompted by an article Crawford County Convention & Visitors Bureau director Craig Hull wrote in his Pittsburg Morning Sun column.

So far her gift basket of Kansas products includes:
Grannie's Homemade Mustard, Hillsboro
Knackie's Bear-B-Cue, Inman
Art & Mary's Potato Chips, Cheney
Voran-Goertzen Peppernuts, Goessel
Circle's Pecans, McCune
Helmuth Bakery Homemade Noodles, Hutchinson
Blacksmith Roastery Coffee, Lindsborg

He'll just love this!

She could add:
A Caramel Apple MarCon pie or any other delicious flavor, Washington
A bottle of Kansas wine
Schlaegel's Homegrown Popcorn, Whiting
Buffalo meat, Smoky Hill Bison, Assaria
Muffin mixes, dried soup mixes, Louisburg

You could go to one-stop shopping and order most of these from Kansas Originals Market near Wilson! Click here, then under the catalog, click food products. Or, go visit them at the Wilson exit, just north of I-70.

Add Kansas art or photographs!
Add Kansas music! Ann Zimmerman, Kelly Hunt, Diamond W Wranglers, and so, so many more!
Add Kansas books!

For more ideas, here's an online Christmas shopping guide!

Giving Kansas is a meaningful gift. So instead of "Get Kansas" we're suggesting "Give Kansas!"
