A collection of my favorite items from Texas based independent businesses, sure to delight any woman in your life:
2. The Citizenry lava tray set of two ($155): A Dallas based company that works with artisans from around the world, featuring a collection from one particular country each season. These lava trays are sourced from volcanic rock in Mexico and made by a group of five artisans in Guadalajara.
3. Kristin Miller diamond cuff ($85): A boldly simple Deco inspired bronze cuff, that includes hidden engraving on the interior. Easily bendable for size adjustment, perfectly complimenting most wrist sizes.
4. Benjamin Soap Co. soy candle, bath salts and soap ($7 - $16): Made in Austin, with the mission of making pure, additive free products affordable for everyone. The soy candles are a personal favorite of mine, featuring wood wicks that add another delightful layer of scent. The Apple Mint, Woodberry and Cedarwood Sage scents are amazing.
5. Lilco Studio amigo card ($5) and Dolly Parton print ($90): I always like to have a stockpile of creative cards on hand for sending, and love these from the Dallas based letterpress studio. (Also, how awesome is this Dolly Parton print?!)
6. Foremost fair isle socks ($22): Foremost is a Dallas team that designs one monthly, small-batch collection for each gender, featuring pieces that are American made and exceptionally well priced. These socks are knit in Pennsylvania at a family owned mill using Italian spun merino & cashmere blend yarn.
7. Maggie Louise Confections chocolates ($13 - $85): Almost too pretty to eat, I'm obsessed with these chocolate pieces of art! This Austin company ships countrywide, and has lots of fun gift box themes and mouth-watering flavors.
8. Kristin Miller variant studs ($45): No jewelry lover could resist these simple but eye-catching studs, that can be worn with anything.
9. DIRT succulent nest ($32) and living stones in cactus skeleton set of 4 ($67): A floral shop in the Bishop Arts area of Dallas that I could spend days in. They ship these cute little arrangements that feature unexpected materials like cactus skeleton and "living stones" (apparently they are a type of succulent!).
