‘Tis the season to shop! Britons know how to queue; New Yorkers know how to hail a cab; Los Angelenos know how to find the beach; and Houstonians know how to shop. Ever since the city struck liquid gold, the finest brands and boutiques have dropped a pin on the Texas gulf, well aware that Houston visitors and locals alike had a keen eye for the crème de la crème. The legacy of that appreciation for quality lives on today — no matter the occasion or holiday, Houston is guaranteed to offer the perfect token to show your friends and loved ones how much they mean to you.

As the leaves change and the weather cools, Christmas jingle bells and the soft light of menorahs make our worlds more merry and bright. Our extended Holiday Gift Guide has something for each occasion: Shower your loved one with the sparkle of diamonds from the premier jeweler, de Boulle. Mosey down to Pinto Ranch to be fitted for a pair of handmade boots and bundle up in all things western. As for the home, discover Kuhl-Linscomb‘s emporium of upscale goods including décor, furniture and kitchenware. Whether it’s for your significant other, your home or your little one, we point you in the direction of the perfect gift.

Discover our cover girl, Caroline’s, picks for her favorite items on our thoughtfully curated list. If you dig her style, be sure to follow her @houseofharper, for more gifting ideas as the holidays approach.

Happy shopping!
