So. You waited until the last minute to knock those last few friends and family members off old the Christmas shopping list. It happens to the best of us.

Dallas KNOWS what Rose Couture can do you for — and Fort Worth is about to find out, too! Their luxurious Fort Worth location opened recently, and we absolutely love the vibe as much as we love the amazing work they do! Their services include Gel-x, dip and acrylic manicures, pedicures, waxing, and lashes. A gift card here is like giving your pal a visit to heaven.

High Five Nail Bar in the Oak Lawn area is offering more than just a basic mani-pedi! This enhanced salon features nine pedicure and manicure packages, perfect for all budgets! Plus they offer facials, and massages to create the ultimate girls’ day experience! Every service here includes a complimentary cocktail or glass of wine from the bar! You can have happy hour and get your nails done all in one place!


4. keeks

When in doubt, a designer handbag will usually get RAVE reviews from the woman in your life. Keeks is Dallas' (well Plano's, really) go-to for gently pre-owned designer bags and accessories. They're stocked with more than 4,000 unique and gorgeous handbags from brands like Hermes, Givenchy, Louis Vuitton, Yves Saint Laurent and Chanel. Here are some ideas under $500, and here's what's currently on sale. Happy hunting.

This late-night Dallas nail salon is open until midnight, and it is a TOTAL vibe! Life can get busy and it can be difficult to find time for yourself. At Nail Bloom they believe that self-care is an important part of life and they are open late into the night to provide that for you. There is also a $25 pedicure special where you can get a quick and budget-friendly pamper if you need to get in and out. This salon believes skincare is not only meant for your face, but for your entire body. Their services incorporate skincare ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin E, aloe vera, and retinoids. Other services include waxing and lashes.

Heading to a holiday party soon, but don’t know what to bring as a White Elephant gift? Well, the search is over, because the party favors at Spec's are bound to get stolen twice! Our fave finds at Spec's, which has nearly 40 locations in the DFW area, include their espresso martini kits, mini rose cocktails, Fireball ornaments, the Veuve x Smeg Champagne fridge, various ranch water packs, the spiked hot cocoa kits, wine pairing baskets, and the Kraken run + tiki mug set.


14. talking out of turn

Talking Out of Turn is Oak Cliff's cheekiest stationery shop, and we love it here. The playful product line is packed with great gift ideas like candy-colored planners, stationery, stickers, self-care products, and home goods. They’re often emblazoned with a cheeky phrase or a fun pattern.


15. Quicklotz

Quicklotz in Hurst is one of the hottest hotspots for severely discounted treasure! Get Target brands and more, and they're constantly restocking, so even if you’re not first in line, you’re going to snag insane items.

16. West ForK Garden Market

Fort Worth's West Fort Garden Market is an indoor/outdoor venue with five rooms packed with everything from home decor, to unique and colorful Christmas decorations and every party supply you could ever desire. They also have huge vinyl streamers you can rent in every color combo possible, plus the cutest plates, cups, napkins and endless paper goods. We were fascinated by their door hanger and wreath making station — you can choose every element down to the color and type of bow! If you’re on the hunt for custom faux orchids or flower arrangements, they have that too! This is a perfect spot to shop for a Christmas gift, or to shop for yourself a little.
