It is nearly mid-December, which means that our Black Friday and online binge shopping orders should have all arrived and we are sifting through what we have for people and what we don’t. Might be too risky to shop online at this point and in our small little town, it is important to know where to go to get the perfect gift for those left on your list locally. Also, it is important to note that our husbands are just now, maybe not yet, remembering that it is their job to ensure we have presents too… and if not, then now is the perfect time to stuff your own stocking and gift yourself some things from Santa!
Here is where we are going to look for local last minute shopping favorites:
Farm + Yard : it’s not too late to cash in on their 5% off sale which ends December 16th for playsets (the gift that keeps on giving all year!). We love their products that come with free delivery & install. A chicken coup would make a great gift for mom too!

Lyn Taylor Color : Besties, mother in laws, sisters, teachers, etc. a color consultation with Alex Cook is a phenomenal gift idea and will change the way they (or you!) shop and dress to your best advantage. Find out what your ideal color palette includes and you will feel beautifully empowered for years to come. We LOVED having Alex come present our Waco Moms Executive Team’s colors at our annual holiday dinner party!

Lanes on Austin : Ask anyone who knows her and you’ll find out that this is Katie’s favorite store. Walk in and take a look around, and you’ll see why! With gifts for hostesses, teachers, moms, sisters, girlfriends, future brides, etc. you cannot go wrong. They have a huge Mackenzie Childs stock, beautiful dishes and decor, monogrammed leather goods, art, candles and so so so much more. Looking for something timeless and elegant that you might not need (unless you are hosting Christmas dinner or a party!), but you/they will definitely want? This is the spot.

Gracefully : Never have I ever received so many compliments on my dainty and elegant earrings and necklaces than when I had on the ones I purchased from Gracefully at our fall Waco Moms event. Grace designs not only beautiful pieces, but they are well made, high quality and affordable! Grab them for your girlfriends to let them know you are thinking of them this Christmas! You can purchase her designs online or at various shop collaborations such as For Keeps Coffee Shop off of Bosque and Ramble & Co. downtown!
J. Hilburn on Washington : Because when he looks his best, it is just as much a gift for you as it is for him! Fathers, father in laws, brothers, etc. can be tricky to shop for outside of Bass Pro Shop (where you know they already bought themselves everything they wanted anyways). We are SO impressed with the space at J Hilburn and their team of expert stylists. Gift the gift is custom fit clothing with a measuring session and keep their measurements on (digital/app) file so that ordering future gifts and clothing needs happens with ease. I still do not understand how men’s sizing works exactly, but I am beyond confident in the team there to steer us both in the right direction. They also have great leather goods, shoes, sweaters and such on hand for easy and luxurious gifting for the man of your house!

Le Danni Fine Jewelers : We LOVE to sparkle and the team at Le Danni has an amazing selection of affordable and splurge-worthy gifts that any mom, mother in law, daughter, husband, etc. will feel spoiled with. They also have both natural and lab grown diamond options which means that you can have bling on a budget! Their jewelers will give you expert guidance and will make sure you enjoy your shopping experience as much as you (or they) will love the gifts you come home with!

Splendid Oaks Chocolates : When in doubt – get them chocolate! Clients, colleagues, teachers, hostesses, in-laws, literally everyone loves getting spoiled by chocolate that could double as artwork. Their locally made artisan chocolates are made with the highest quality ingredients. Now with 2 locations, one in Waco and one in Woodway, popping by for a quick, easy, delicious and beautiful gift has never been easier, Wacoans! If I don’t have 2 boxes of 32 under my tree, someone will be in trouble!

Revitalize Skin MD : Stuff our stocking with allll the moisturizers, cleansers and serums this Christmas please! Plus maybe a gift card for a facial or other treatment couldn’t hurt either! My husband LOVES my moisturizer so much that he now has to have his own. We love their their physician led team that only provides the highest level of proven products ensuring that our money is well spent and our faces are fresh all winter (and year) long!

We love all of these local brands and encourage you to give them, and the many wonderful others we didn’t mention, your business! Shopping local benefits more than just those that we shop for.
