The Dallas Gift Shops PaperCity Staffers Return to Again and Again

Guaranteed Hits Only

BY PaperCity Dallas // 10.21.21

The temperature has dipped below 70 degrees and long-dormant Highland Park Village string lights have flickered on once again. I think I even saw a leaf fall the other day. We all know what that means — it’s officially gifting season in Texas. In an effort to shift focus from Amazon to the brilliant shops and boutiques around the corner, we pulled the PaperCity team to discover their favorite year-round gift stores in Dallas.

The following neighborhood destinations cover Bishop Arts, Knox-Henderson, and beyond, in addition to every gifting category you might be looking for. With selections vetted by a team that truly loves to shop (perhaps too much), you can rest assured the following stores have the guaranteed hits to make everyone in your orbit feel special.

Travelers staying at the adjoining Adolphus Hotel can find a deodorant, bath products, or any travel goods they may have forgotten (they just so happen to be the chicest versions of those items imaginable), but locals can appreciate the edited selection of hard-to-find brands, delicate jewelry, Stetson hats, and more effortlessly giftable goodness. – Caitlin Clark
