The holiday season has arrived and with it comes the desire for holiday gift ideas. Whether you are shopping for someone who lives in North Dakota or who simply has good taste, there are a range of iconic souvenirs and gifts from the area to bring joy to your loved ones this holiday season and beyond.
For the outdoor enthusiasts
Help your outdoor enthusiasts step up their game with a park pass to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and vehicle permit to all 13 state parks. Book an unforgettable experience with a guide for their next hunting or fishing trip or indulge in a cozy weekend getaway with a stay in a cabin or lodge like Coteau des Prairies.
For the bucket list fanatics
Consider adding a few other bucket list stops to your list. Examine skeletons of dinosaurs in Dickinson, hike the trails of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, see for miles from the seven-story viewing tower in the Pembina State Museum, and smile from the shadows of the giant roadside art along the Enchanted Highway. Explore www.ndtourism.com to personalize your trip and invite your loved ones on a vacation to take it all in.
For the sports fans
All sports fans need gear to support their teams on game day. Make sure they are ready for the latest and greatest plays with new gear. Get them ready for the next tailgating or rink-side adventure, deck them out from head to toe with logo-emblazoned beanies to fuzzy socks and keep them warm with a mug or blanket. Splurge a little and gift a few game day tickets or go all in for season passes.
For the arts and culture admirers
Shop one-of-a-kind pieces from small businesses and North Dakota artists like potter Tama Smith from Prairie Fire Pottery, metalsmith David Badman from Badman Designs or glass blower Jon Offutt from House of Mulciber. Your favorite historian will appreciate taking in the culture of the state and its people at attractions like the North Dakota Heritage Center and State Museum, MHA Interpretive Center, National Buffalo Museum, Scandinavian Heritage Park and Fort Abraham Lincoln.
For the food connoisseurs
North Dakota leads the nation in the production of many agricultural products, so it is no wonder you can find many delicious treats here. Stop into Widman’s Candy Shop in Grand Forks to satisfy a sweet tooth with its classic chocolate-covered potato chips. Sweeten the stockings with North Dakota-made honey or go the savory route with sunflower seeds.
