Woman shopping local stores in Dallas for Christmas presents



The game of gift giving never gets any easier. Maybe it’s that person who has everything that’s got you stumped, the person you know nothing about whose name you drew for your holiday exchange party at work, or it might even be your best friend – in which case, you really have no excuse. Our best advice? Narrow it down by category, and then shop around with these four no-fail holiday gift ideas for Dallas-area retailers.

For The Foodie & Chef

Everybody loves food. But there’s a difference between loving food and loving to make and enjoy your food. A visit to Williams Sonoma, in Dallas, will give you all the inspiration you need to choose a gift. Select from a wide assortment of cookware, kitchen appliances, and cooking utensils. A classic like the Le Creuset Round Wide Dutch Oven is perfect for a warm meal on a cool winter nights.

For The Plant Lover & Modern Gardener

Having plants around the house is such a mood booster. In fact, there are many benefits to having houseplants, like an increase in productivity, cleaner air, and more oxygen. Check out the local plant and garden center, Redenta’s, for a wide assortment of indoor and outdoor plants, planters, and gardening supplies. At the potting bar, experienced staff can help you strategically arrange a beautiful planter for that special someone.

For The Home Design Fanatic

Nothing says cozy like a home that’s outfitted with modern yet neutral pieces that tie a space together. Pottery Barn on Knox Street in Dallas offers all of the home furnishings and gift ideas for the design-minded friend. Candles, throw blankets, and coffee table books are all safe gift choices for that home decor lover.

For The Active Type

Fill the cup of any active friend who enjoys a good sweat most days of the week with a new workout ensemble. Lululemon has something for everyone, with technical gear made for sweaty pursuits. From leggings to hats to gloves, lululemon excels in quality and excellence in activewear.
