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. Even if that's the case, they'll never figure you for the procrastinator you are when you grab them something thoughtful and unique at one of these 24 Dallas shops and boutiques!
1. dallas silk art
Make them something beautiful or gift an experience with a gift card to Dallas Silk Art, where you can create a one-of-a-kind marbled scarf, handkerchief or another truly unique piece for your loved one.
2. flea style
With locations in Deep Ellum, Frisco and Fort Worth, Dallas' own Flea Style is one of those truly unique boutiques that combines a penchant for vintage finds with newer treasures and experimental retail and lifestyle concepts.
If you're feeling utterly unprepared for your Christmas gathering, the market at Eatzi's can be a lifesaver. But Eatzi's is actually great for a few last-minute stocking stuffers for the food lover in your life. How about an artisan olive oil, jam, or preserves? They also have a great selection of oils, crackers, mustards and spreads, so go nuts!
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.
Find great jewelry, accessories and fashion at Keepsake on North Henderson. They've got dresses for weeks, and they've got a ton on sale, too!
Want a sure bet? Get her something that sparkles. The fine folks at Mariloff have a massive inventory that ensures you'll find the perfect piece for that perfect someone, and they also have TONS of gift ideas for under $2,500! How about an initial ring for $450, and/or the matching necklace for just $320!
