The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - Some­thing other than cologne and ties for dad can be found at Holmes for Men. Check out their line of “Peach State Pride” items. SJ Cor­re­spon­dent Poinsettias are a tra­di­tional gift at Christ­mas, and Bussey’s Florist in Cedar­town has a va­ri­ety to choose f

Bet­ter to give than to re­ceive is a motto for many dur­ing the hol­i­days, and the county’s lo­cal busi­nesses have some­thing for any shop­per look­ing to put a smile on a loved one’s face.

The op­tions are vast, but each store has at least one spe­cific item that has been sell­ing well as a gift or would make an ex­cel­lent gift.

Cedar­town’s Holmes for Men, 235 S. Main St., is sell­ing items that could please any sharp dresser on Christ­mas morn­ing, but the store’s “Peach State Pride” hats seem to be the pop­u­lar gift for lo­cals. For $29.99 each, the hats come in a va­ri­ety of col­ors and de­signs.

Holmes is open on Mon­day through Thurs­day from 9 a.m. through 5:30 pm. And 9 a.m. through 12 p.m. on Wed­nes­days.

Rock­mart’s Now and Then, lo­cated at 106 E. Church St., is filled to the brim with po­ten­tial gifts, but own­ers Bob­bie Fuller and Tina Lanier have sug­ges­tions for hol­i­day shop­pers look­ing through the store’s col­lec­tion of an­tiques.

“For younger peo­ple, we have the lo­cally made jew­elry and bracelets,” Fuller said. “We have im­ported dough bowls, dec­o­ra­tions, and more for older peo­ple.”

Now and Then is open from 10 a. m. through 6 p.m. on Mon­day through Satur­day and 1 through 4 p.m. on Sun­day.

Cedar­town’s South­ern Charmed Bou­tique is sell­ing gifts in the form of cot­ton dec­o­ra­tions. A trend­ing dec­o­ra­tion, the plant is fill­ing homes in the form of stalks, birches, and much more.

“My cot­ton is what’s sell­ing right now,” owner Wy­lene Wor­thy said.

Cedar­town’s f l orist and gifts, lo­cated at 302 N. Main St., is of­fer­ing Christ­mas gifts in the form of flow­ers. While maybe hard to wrap, wak­ing up to fresh flow­ers on Dec. 25 would be a unique present for any friend or fam­ily mem­ber.

“There are fresh flow­ers of all kinds,” owner Shirley Bussey said. “We have Poinsettias and gift items- just a va­ri­ety.”

Bussey’s is open from 8 : 3 0 a. m. t hrough 5 p.m. ev­ery day Mon­day through Satur­day.

Rock­mart’s Dis­count Mall, lo­cated at 124 S. Mar­ble St., is sell­ing nu­mer­ous items that could work as gifts, but the store’s purses seem to be a pop­u­lar choice for in­di­vid­u­als. Vary­ing in price, the store of­fers brand name purses and hand­bags that could please fe­male loved ones. Those in­ter­ested in other lo­cal shop­ping should give down­town Rock­mart and Cedar­town a visit where other stores may have the per­fect gift for your needs.
