Dallas isn’t lacking in thoughtfully curated gift box options. Right now, you could pop over to Set & Co. in Oak Cliff and have them whip up a gorgeous wooden box filled with pantry goods and bath essentials for a post-holiday pampering sesh. Or you could gift your tiniest friends (and their moms) with local treats and sartorial-minded swaddles (seriously) from Buttermilk Babies. Here are five Dallas-based options you can purchase online right now.
This is all to say that it takes a lot for us to get truly hyped about a gift box these days, but then this curated option by the editors of The Joule’s bi-monthly publication 1530 Main came along and — bear with me as I attempt to use this phrase — it was so extra. But like, the good kind of extra. A Drake-wearing-a-massive-turtleneck level of extra. You get it.
Basically, you email [email protected], and they’ll collaborate with the shopper (and work with a wide range of requests and price ranges) to source gifts from spots such as newly opened Commissary, TASCHEN Library, Weekend Coffee, the Spa at the Joule, and more Tim Headington-approved downtown favorites.
Or, you could score the most extra of the extra by entering a giveaway for a 1530 Main-curated box retailed at over $800. There’s a Commes des Garçons wallet in there from Traffic LA, a Boy Smells Cedar Stack Candle (our favorite Boy Smell) from TenOverSix, a gift card and rosé from Commissary and more. There’s a social media heavy process for entering that can get complicated, so I’ll just direct you here for those details.
Happy gifting! Stay extra.
