The #RelentlesslyOriginal Holiday Gift Guide
If you’re looking for average gifts, step aside. With family and friends across the country, you want to get them something relentlessly original – something unique to the Wichita region that they can’t receive from anywhere else. If that’s you, read on. Use this as a tool to make your holiday gift-giving the best it’s ever been.
[Gifts for the Out-of-Towner]
We all know someone with roots in Wichita that moved out of state. Here’s your chance to show your loved one not only that you’re thinking of them, but also how much the community has changed since they moved. Order the “Boomerang Box”, an ICT Box full of locally-made goods with materials showcasing development, new businesses, public art and more. Let’s help Wichita natives realize it’s the perfect time to come back. Act fast! Deadline to order is Dec. 8
Includes goodies from Reverie Coffee Roasters, Lola Candle Co, Cocoa Dolce, Spicy J's and Heartlandia
Gifting loot from local businesses will make your friends and family envious of the #RelentlesslyOriginal life you live in Wichita. Visit the businesses listed below that are notorious for their one-of-a-kind gear. (These are great gifts for locals, too.)
COFFEE AND SPECIALTY TEAS
Gift coffee and tea that's only found in Wichita. It’s easy to ship, tastes outstanding and supports the region’s local businesses. These stellar businesses might have branded merch for sale, too.
You can’t go wrong with gifting art created by a member of Wichita’s flourishing arts community. If truly unique is what you’re looking for, truly unique is what you’ll get. Visit any of the galleries and shops below and check out their social media channels for limited-time pop-ups by local makers.
WINE FROM THE WICHITA REGION
Wow your guests with wine produced in Tornado Alley. The perfect pairing with your holiday feast is waiting – ditch the ordinary stand-by and try a local bottle of Moscato, Chardonnay or Pinot Noir.

Tickets to Concerts, Plays, Musicals and More
Give the gift of experiencing local performing arts at the region’s best venues this holiday season. Roxy’s Downtown and Mosley Street Melodrama both offer holiday shows that consistently sell out. And, with a diverse array of artists, musicians and shows, there’s a performance for every taste and niche.
Wind Surge Gear
Wichita’s double-A baseball team Wind Surge has the coolest gear. From hats and shirts to teddy bears and golf balls, help your friends and family stock up before the 2022 season. Wind Surge swag is great for out-of-towners, too.
