D Magazine’s 2018 Holiday Gift Guides

2018

The gift potential in Dallas is vast. Our city is home to inspiring makers and entrepreneurs creating present options aplenty, while well-stocked, locally-owned gift shops can be found in practically every Dallas neighborhood. So how do you choose the best of the best for the ones you love?

Fortunately, Dallas is also home to veritable curating experts, a few of whom generously lent a helping hand in crafting this year’s D Magazine gift guides. From textile artist turned gifter extraordinaire Liz Vidrine to the wellness aficionados behind The Greenway Shop, these talented Dallasites (and their great taste) have you covered for every important person in your life.

Men may be notoriously difficult to shop for, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at Liz Vidrine’s Loved & Found website. The gift box studio has not one but 14 options dedicated to men — each one cool, classic, and guaranteed to please. Naturally, her “For Him” picks, from useful notebooks and whiskey-based literature to splurge-worthy cashmere, are in equally great taste.

Long before San Francisco-based Credo and Boston-based Follain came to Dallas this year, Flauren Bender and Hallie Lamont introduced Dallas to clean beauty through The Greenway Shop, their charming shop-within-a-shop housed in Madre’s bungalow along West Lovers Lane. This, of course, makes the lawyers and shop owners the perfect authorities on how to satisfy the wellness-obsessed — whether that’s a loved one, or yourself.
