Local Gifts for Keeping 417 Strong
Social distancing might be keeping us away from friends and family but that doesn’t mean we’re not thinking of them. Send a smile—and a gift—to make your favorite person’s day a little brighter with the help of these local retailers and businesses.

• The Merry Moore Boutique is now offering care packages, available in two sizes. The small care package comes with a motel-style keychain, a 3.5 oz. soy candle, a hair tie and a card with a personalized message. Feeling generous? Upgrade to a large care package including items from the small package plus a market bag or pouch and a salt water sandal or any item from the sale tab online.
• Know someone in need of a little pampering? Send them one of the three new quarantine kit options from Acacia Spa for some much-needed TLC.
• For the friend who’s always reppin' local threads, give them the gift that keeps on giving. 5 Pound Apparel’s T-shirt Club sends out a newly designed t-shirt each month starting April 20. Sales also help support Ozarks Food Harvest.
• Sign them up for Vino Cellars’ wine club and your friend will receive two bottles of premium wine each month. Or you can always go fifty-fifty—a bottle for you and a bottle for a friend.
• Macadoodles is currently offering delivery of anything in store from its Independence location. Why not create a gift basket with all your friend’s favorites to be delivered straight to their door? Note: All deliveries must be at least $25 with a $5 delivery fee.
• Send a gift full of adventure, hope or laughter with Pagination Bookshop’s delivery. Order online to have your favorite books or book shop favorites sent directly to friends and family with a personalized message.
• Don’t forget the kiddos (and kiddos at heart)! Hurts Donut in Branson is offering donut decorating to-go kits.
• Help Monroe House support other local businesses with their new fundraiser t-shirt. At the end of next week, the boutique will share the profits of the shirt with the top two nominated small businesses so grab a tee for you and your friend!
• Don’t forget the simple joy of receiving a card in the mail. Check out Culture Flock’s line of unique greeting cards to show a friend how much you care.
• Keep your friends up-to-date and entertained while staying inside with a yearly subscription to 417 Magazine.
