When giving gifts to your favorite girls, avoid a one-hit wonder with these little numbers. Some might call them music to their ears. We prefer off-the-charts cool.
Nest’s nifty Bar10der tool makes cocktail lovers bubble over. Her medicine never looked so good, thanks to Jonathan Adler’s new flame-stitch flask (pictured). Hiatus Spa + Retreat’s Winter Wonderful treatment includes a body scrub, Vichy shower, and massage; it’s topped off with a sparkling pomegranate cocktail.
Roll the dice with Haikubes. Turn your favorite photo into fine art on birch wood (or regular ol’ canvas if that’s your jam) from Austin’s Gallery Direct. Continue the A-town trend with Son of a Sailor, which makes edgy jewelry, and a painterly calendar by Leah Duncan.
Marfa-based El Cosmico Provision Company provides cool loot for the casa, such as Topo Chico glassware, painted pottery, and vintage South American wool blankets. Stock her cupboards with Fort Worth’s In a Pickle Foods. Simply Pressed’s custom letterpress coasters are a glass act.
The nose knows Thirdman’s exclusive new unisex fragrances for Neiman’s. Scardello’s Best of Texas gift basket ($55) includes stinky cheese, chocolate, and honey. Can’t beat a holiday pie (pumpkin butterscotch, brown butter pear, s’mores) from Downtown McKinney’s budding Layered Bake Shop.
Don’t miss Dixie Goods Company’s dog collars in mod fabrics. Outfit her little Tubark Shakur in the coolest doggie sweater ever, fill his belly with healthy treats, or hire The Dog Photographer’s Mica Ringo to snap a pic. For cat ladies, meow thinks this print purrs.
Now rock on with your holiday self.
