Great West Village Gift Ideas — Picking Up Prime Presents Makes Holiday Shopping Fun at This North Texas Mecca

There's Something For Everyone in The Village

BY // 11.30.20

Don’t look now, but the holiday season is upon us. Yes, it has arrived, and we’re here to remind you that the gift list you’ve been working on needs to be ready. Go ahead and complete it this week, and be sure to include your kids’ teachers — they’ve been doing heroic work this year. Of course, the usual suspects are on your list — your significant other, parents, sisters and brothers. It’s the season of giving (and, of course, receiving).

Of course, searching for the gifts for all those on your list needn’t be trying. In fact, it can be fun. And actually get you away from just sitting in front of your computer screen. For the gift giving oasis of your dreams is available right here in North Texas.

There’s nothing better than taking a stroll in West Village, “Uptown’s Downtown” in Dallas, and personally selecting gifts for your lucky recipients. There really is something for everyone — friends, family, and colleagues — in the Village.

Need some inspiration? We’ve put together a list of gifts that will make anyone on your list happy. And they are all available in West Village.

The Perfect Gifts

Let’s begin with Kendra Scott, the jewelry brand created by a mother of three in 2002 whose style and elegance are unsurpassed. The Jack Small Statement Earrings in Vintage Gold Teal Crystal ($98) and the Jack Statement Stud Earrings in Gold Jewel Tone Mix ($68) would look great on your assistant and your sister — buy both for any woman and you’ll be their shining star.

Kendra Scott’s Jack Statement Stud earrings make an excellent gift.
The Jack Small Statement earring will wow them.

Who doesn’t like a bag or two (or many)? Nicole Kwon knows that your list is going to feature at least one handbag, and the KWONN Black Shopper ($595) and KWONN Camel Shopper ($560) will delight any woman of taste. They are made from non-animal vegan suede, are washable, scratch proof, and made by hand in New York.

The KWONN Black Shopper bag makes the proper statement.

Looking good and feeling good go hand in hand, and the Face Haus understands that well. The holiday season can be stressful, and 2020 has been beyond stressful already. Why not share some joy with someone special on your list by gifting them a gift card for a luscious facial experience at Face Haus?

And there’s a bonus here: Make that gift card worth $125 or more and you’ll receive a free product and a gift box. That’s a no-brainer.

A Face Haus gift card can de-stress and restore even the most stressed-out person on your list.

Staying with the relaxation theme, Spa Habitat is the source for a variety of organic pampering services — including massages, facials, manicures and pedicures, and waxing  — sure to put a contented smile on your partner’s face. Choose from Spa Habitat’s lineup of rituals, select the dollar amount you wish to bestow, and get ready for profuse appreciation.

Our suggestion: Peace & Love for Two, a three-hour treatment including the Green Peace massage, Classic Farm to Spa Facial and the wonderful Organic Foot Ritual ($594). (Don’t forget to treat yourself.)

Massage, anyone?

Looking your best can involve lipstick and lip care, and you can be sure that gifts from MYX Blend Bar will make delectable stocking stuffers for all the chic women on your list. Under the Mistletoe, a classic red shade, is perfect for the holiday season. Pair it with a Balmshell Lip Balm, a MYX marvel containing a blend of tripeptides that helps increase collagen production and plumpness, and they’ll be singing your praises well into 2021.

MYX’s Under the Mistletoe lipstick makes a perfect stocking stuffer.

The people behind Nickel & Suede have a laudable guiding mantra: “We are all about inspiring women to be brave and try new things.” Who doesn’t like that?

Courage really is contagious. We bet there are more than a few women on your gift list who are brave and courageous, so why not celebrate them with some statement pieces they’ll wear for years? The Hammered Gold Aster Hoops combine the look of metal and the feel of leather ($45), and the Rock Star Gift Set ($107) is a trio worthy of, well, a rock star. (Nickel & Suede’s pieces are designed and handcrafted in the United States. And yes, that is premium Italian leather as well.)

The Rock Star Trio will have them front and center this holiday season.

Allen Edmonds, founded in 1922, is an American treasure. Boots and shoes, briefcases and bags, belts and wallets. . . if leather is your thing, Allen Edmonds is a must for the men on your gift list. The options are diverse and varied — from traditional, to classic, to contemporary, the brand has it. We like the idea of Bag and Boots, because we’re all itching to get away in style.

Customize your gift package and book your hotels. We recommend the Saddle Leather duffel bag ($750) and the Liverpool Chelsea boot (on sale for $345).

Get that special man on your list a travel bag and pair of boots from Allen Edmonds.

West Village is the place to be this holiday season, and its boutiques, shops, restaurants and other diversions await you. Shopping is more fun when you do it in person — and this is a true, safe retreat in Dallas. For more on the West Village difference, check out its full website.
