From gorgeous locally-made jewelry to Arkansas-made candles and cards that are laugh-out-loud hilarious, Bang-Up Betty’s gift shop and jewelry store in the Argenta Arts District has something special for your Valentine with extended holiday hours to take the panic out last minute shopping. This unusual, quirky and colorful shop is filled with handmade jewelry, funny and sweet cards, kid-friendly knick-knacks, donut bath bombs, thoughtful home decor and clever gifts – including lots of local pottery, art, candles, tea and more.
Here are some of our favorite Valentine’s Day gift ideas that will make your sweetheart never suspect last minute shopping…
A Valentine card that comes with a cotton candy bath fizz packs a little extra treat. Funny magnets like the “princess of feral cats” fit perfectly inside Valentine cards. Rainbow cake, but make it socks! Celebrity keychains make great gifts for men, women and teenagers. Uncork the Valentine’s Day wine in style with a gold beetle corkscrew. Custom-stamped jewelry like this “love nest” keychain are Bang-Up Betty specialty. A feather quill pen adds a touch of fancy to your life. Sea salt is one of the many flavors of chocolate and candy at Bang-Up Betty.
Handmade jewelry, like the “strong as hell” necklace, is another Bang-Up Betty specialty. The store is filled with hundreds of pieces of Arkansas-made jewelry, so you’re sure to find something perfect for your sweetheart whether they’re into strong, motivational mantras or sweet honey bees and golden unicorns.
Once you pick out the perfect piece of jewelry (may we suggest this dolphin necklace from Bang-Up Betty’s ocean-themed Seven Seas Collection), make sure you have a jewelry box that’s as special as what it contains. A gorgeous incense holder on the table next to it doesn’t hurt either.
This shop is known for its hilarious and unique greeting cards, and these lovey-dovey cards come with a bath bomb built into them. They’re fun for kids and adults.
Light up your loved one’s heart and their home with a fun, colorful decorative pillow. Bang-Up Betty has lots of unique and well-curated home decor to make any space special. We love the heart hands pillow for Valentine’s Day.
This gift shop has a smorgasbord of fun socks – like the snack-themed ice pop, rainbow cake, sandwich and lollipop socks.
