It’s time to deck the halls and stuff the stockings. We’ve rounded up some of the best stocking stuffers from companies across Texas if you’re looking for something a bit more chic — and local — than coal.
It’s Christmas in Texas, so obviously we love this Mini Boot Ornament from Austin-based Tecovas. It can go straight from the stocking to the tree. Write 2022 on the back or a little note for a small, personalized touch.
For those 21+, add a splash of excitement to their stocking with a canned spirit from Dallas-based beverage company RancH20. There are lots of choices to choose from, but we love the Ranch Water (obviously) and the Classic Marg (because we are in Texas, after all). Or, if they’re a vodka fan, add a mini bottle of Tito’s Vodka, handmade at Texas’ first legal distillery just outside of Austin.
Now that you’ve added sips, let’s talk bites. Stuff the stockings with handmade tamales from Duncanville-based The Tamale Company, mini hot sauces from Austin-based Siete Foods, or social enterprise Bonton Farms’ Honey Butter. For something sweet, try custom, decorated cookies from Houston’s famous Michael’s Cookie Jar.
For the homebody, these coasters from Argyle-based entrepreneur Jenn Thatcher are the perfect touch. Available in blue, blush, and — our personal favorite — watercolor longhorn.
Anything from White Rock Soap Gallery is also a great choice for the homebody in your life. While their soaps are obviously beautifully crafted, their Whiski Designs Soy Wax Candles feature some pretty chuckle-worthy designs.
Add some personalization to their stocking with custom art from Kate Posthaste Designs. The Dallas-based educator and artist turns memories into mementos and creates watercolor art, personalized stationery, and more.
Accessorize their stocking with a piece from Dallas-based Hazen & Co.’s holiday collection – we love the Rowe Earrings.
For some serious bling, add some sparkle with a ring, bracelet, or necklace from Houston Diamond Girl Lindsey Leigh Jewelry.
Of course, we can’t forget about our four-legged friends. If you’re stocking a canine stuffing this year, add a treat from Austin’s Barkin’ Creek Dog Kitchen & Bath. The dog kitchen uses USDA-quality, human-grade, meats, fruits, and vegetables, so you can feel good about what your pup eats.
