Need a new last-minute holiday gift idea? We've got a few that might help. From chocolate to art to something for the golfer, it can all be found right here at the Lake of the Ozarks!
1. Golf Gear
With the number of golf courses and pro shops at our fingertips, if you’ve got a golfer on your list it should be easy to find something they would love! Visit any of the many pro shops from Eldon to Osage Beach, Camdenton and Versailles that offer all kinds of gear for the golf course. A gift certificate for a few rounds of golf wouldn’t be a bad idea either!
2. Sweet Treats
Who doesn’t indulge a little during the holidays? Shop small by visiting locally-owned stores like Blair & Co. Confectionery, Osage River Popcorn, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory and Grandmas Candy Kitchen for a wide selection of chocolates, candy and boxed gift items. Some also have more than just food so you can get even more of your shopping done.
3. Boat Gadgets
We are all dreaming of warmer weather so we can go boating again. Check out any of our local marine dealers that have shops filled with boating-related items. From floaties to T-shirts and any other product or service a boater would need, you’ll find lots of sea-worthy gifts. The nautical or fishing enthusiast in your life will have something to look forward to. Only 96 days left until Spring!
4. Stocking Stuffers
Dogpatch on the Bagnell Dam Strip and Ozarkland in Osage Beach and Camdenton have lots of cool and unusual items that would make perfect stocking stuffers. Both stores have been around for years and have Lake of the Ozarks souvenirs and unique memorabilia for both kids and adults. You will have fun just looking around, and might even find something for yourself.
5. Unique Gifts
If you want something more artsy, Lake Milieu in Osage Beach and Bill Wood’s Art Center and Gallery in Camdenton have some great local artists and vendors on display. Paintings, pottery, jewelry, tea and other homemade items are available for purchase. What a great way to support local businesses and find something different.
