The holiday season is upon us! This is such a fun time to come together and celebrate with family and friends. If you’re looking for gift ideas for the holidays then consider shopping small! I love supporting businesses around Texarkana as I find the perfect gift for everyone on my list. I’ve curated ideas for every taste and budget to share with you. Happy Shopping!
Taste & See on Richmond Road is perfect for finding a delicious treat! From coffee to chocolates and gelato they truly have it all. You can choose your own treats or a curated gift box of chocolates! They also have yummy hot chocolate bombs. My personal favorite treat is the dark chocolate sea salt caramel truffles, they are delicious!
For The Fashionista
Apricot Lane is a great place to find something for the fashionable lady in your life! Help her stay on trend with a warm sweater or puffer vest. I’m also loving their shoe selection like the Vintage Havana sneakers. They have some of the cutest items to give as a gift!
Crocker’s Jewelers is a great place to find a sparkling accessory! They have something for all price points. If you’re looking for a gift under $100 then check out their ENewton or Kendra Scott jewelry lines. They’re perfect for everyday or special occasion jewelry gifts! Another great idea would be a gift certificate for their new permanent jewelry. I recently got a few bracelets myself and love them!
For The Bath Queen
Buff City Soap is a new place that has all the things to pamper yourself! If you’re looking for a gift for a bath lover then you can choose from bath bombs, salts, and truffles. They have ready made gift sets and mini items for stocking stuffers! My personal favorite scent is the narcissist because it makes all my laundry smell amazing.
Did you know Julie’s Deli has more than casseroles and a yummy lunch menu?! They also sell lots of dip and drink mixes. I love their espresso martini mix! You can also find adorable seasonal items like decorative dish towels, serving pieces and cocktail napkins.
For The Home Decor Obsessed
J Brown for the Home is a great place to check out for something special for the home! There are so many great options. I especially love the luxe fragrance lines they carry like Nest and LAFCO! They have divine scents in both candles and reed diffuser styles.
Lindsay Kate Designs truly has it all! Shop online or in person and choose from children’s clothing, customizable paper goods for parties, fun jewelry, and the cutest clothes! I recently purchased a custom Nutcracker painting and can’t wait to check out more of their holiday items.
Something for the Traveler
A toiletry kit or small tote is always a great gift idea for a traveler! Choose from classic styles from either Vera Bradley or Jon Hart. I love that these items can be personalized with initials as well. Add an insulated tumbler from Corkcicle for the perfect pairing and gift for the person on your list who is always on the go!
Stocking Stuffers for the Whole Family
Dreidel has Rowe Casa products of all kinds for the entire family which would make great stocking stuffers! I also love their fun home decor and candles. They have an entire children’s section with clothing from newborn through toddler, essentials for both ages plus a selection of small toys for stocking stuffers! Another personal favorite is all the cute, functional organization journals and writing pads.
Something Gorgeous for the Home
Merchant House has some of the most eye-catching pieces of furniture and home decor pieces! I love their coffee table books as a great gift for anyone. They are so gorgeous and look stunning in any home!
