Did you know you can order Bird Bakery treats online? If you can’t make it to your nearest Bird in San Antonio or Dallas, order a loaf of Pumpkin Bread to gift to your holiday host.

Looking for the perfect hostess gift for a Texas holiday fiesta? These colorful cocktail shakers will be a standout on anyone’s bar and make for a phenomenal gift with a bottle of Tequila or Mezcal. They are from a fantastic local boutique called Felix Modern, located right in San Antonio. It has a great online store, too.
These delicate chocolates are truly a work of art. Pick up a box at Cacao & Cardamom in Houston for gifting your host or stuffing a stocking (as long as they’re not hanging over a fireplace!). You can order them online, too.
Made by the fabulous Settle Ceramics in Austin, these “brushed in blue” wine carafes make the best gifts. When this beautiful ceramic piece is not being used to decant a bottle of red, it also makes for a gorgeous bedside flower vase.
Pop a bottle of bubbly and light up this festive sparkling candle from high-end Houston home store, Kuhl-Linscombe. This is one of my favorite holiday scents and surely will win some bonus points for a stocking stuffer or Christmas gift (especially if it comes in tandem with a bottle of Champagne!).
Vinglace is a Houston company started by a couple who turned tragedy into triumph – and an incredible product, too! I am in love with these glasses. They not only keep your wine cold, but also protect your glass from any breakage! Also, feel-good bonus: a portion of all of their proceeds are donated to breast cancer research.
