The holiday season is upon us, which means the holiday shopping season is in full force and slapping you in the face. You don’t want to scramble two nights before the big day trying to find the only gas station or drugstore open in your area to at least have
something to give your loved one.
Before you devolve into full on panic about your gift shopping, take a breath, and peep this list. We have nine suggestions for presents that any Texan would absolutely love to receive. And if you want these items for yourself, just forward Santa the article. His email is probably Santa@NorthPole.Christmas.
Tacos of Texas
At first glance it was just a box of tacos ready to be eaten. Maybe technology will advance one day where that will be a possibility, but this is pretty cool either way. It’s a book dedicated to Texas’ favorite street food, and travels to every nook and cranny of our state finding the absolute best. If anything else, use this book as a Summer road trip planner.
An Archival Map From The Texas General Land Office
What do Texans love more than Texas? Absolutely nothing. An old school map looks really cool, plus you can trick people into thinking you’re more refined than you actually are. Don’t worry. Theres no need to be ashamed of that Batman poster when you have one of those maps hanging up, too.
Bison Wool Socks From Charles Goodnight’s Ranchland
They’re cozy, warm, and comfortable. It’s cold outside. Easy decision.
Dallas Cowboys Ugly Christmas Sweater
America’s Team is back, baby. If any of your friends aren’t Cowboys fans, then you absolutely need to purchase this, if only just to annoy them.
Beer Cap Map
This will look great hanging next to your old school map. It’s a block of wood, shaped into the outline of Texas, with spots for 60 bottle caps. You can fill it with all of the great craft beers Texas has to offer, or you can just fill the whole thing up with caps from Shiner.
Tumbleweed TexStyles Shirt
The perfect gift for anybody who wants to wear their Texas pride on their sleeve.
Texas State Parks Pass
If you live in a city, you tend to forget sometimes the natural beauty our state has to offer. Cedar Hill State Park is right down the road, and offers a totally different experience unlike any other. Tax dollars already go to aid in the preservation of these beautiful places, so why not take advantage of an investment you already make and visit a park?
A Starter Garden
If you’ve got a close one with a green thumb, these little compact gardens can fit just about anywhere, and are absolutely adorable.
My Texas Market Monthly Subscription Box
Included in the subscription box are artisanal foods and goods from local Texas businesses, and each month is centered around a different theme. For $35 a month, you get between 4 and 6 items, and saves you a trip to the Farmer’s Market!
Any other gift suggestions you can think of? Let us know what else would be the perfect gift for that Texan in your life!
