The most wonderful time of the year is here! That said, we’d be fibbing if we said it also wasn’t one of the most hectic. Between decking the halls of your home for the holidays, finalizing travel plans, and bouncing between holiday parties, it’s easy to become overwhelmed thinking of all shopping you still need to do (and no judgment – you’re not alone!). Fortunately, the showrooms + businesses of the Dallas Design District are here to help. Whether it’s a parent, sibling, significant other, or the host of the next holiday shindig your attending, the DDD has something to satisfy everyone on your list.
Dear Ole’ Mom + Dad
While it’s sometimes difficult not to feel pressure about what to get for the people who have given you everything, it’s usually the little things, like time spent with you, that means the most to Mom and Dad. So, what better gift to give than one that’s sure to include some good ole’ fashion family bonding? Fun ideas could be a family cooking class at The Cookery, or perhaps a day or evening of family bowling at Bowlounge. Or, if your parents aren’t local, a trip to town + a stay at the new Virgin Hotel Dallas in the DDD could be a great way to get everyone together this holiday season.
Sis, Bro or Bestie
Have a sibling or bestie you’re buying for who loves a night on the town? This year, consider giving the gift of the ultimate dining experience in the DDD. Some of our favorite go-to spots that offer gift cards include WheelHouse, Sassetta, Pie Tap, and Delucca. And, if you don’t see your favorite DDD dining spot mentioned here, definitely give them a call to inquire about gift cards, as most are more than happy to accommodate!
For those with friends or family members who may prefer design over dining, Acquisitions and Bungalow 5 both have amazing accessories + decor. And, don’t even get us started on all of the unique, one-of-a-kind gems you’ll find at Griffin Trading Company.
That Special Someone
Gents, struggling with good gift ideas for your gal? Listen up! You likely can’t go wrong with treating the lady in your life to what’s known as “another day in paradise” at the Hair by Charlie salon. Or, impress her with your attention to detail by coming one step closer to completing her china or crystal collection with help from Dahlgren Duck.
Ladies, if your man is of the boots-wearing persuasion, we absolutely suggest splurging on a handmade pair for him at the iconic Texas-based Lucchese. For custom fit + design assistance, just be sure to schedule an appointment in advance. And, if boots or accessories aren’t on your guy’s list, you could always find a neat new statement piece for his office or man cave at Markowicz Fine Art, or Haas Moto Museum & Gallery.
No matter the type of holiday function you may be attending, you never want to show up empty-handed. But, that doesn’t mean having to break the bank. Ascension has festively packaged holiday bundles, like the Pour Over Package, or the Coffe For Two. However, if you are looking for a tad more of an elevated gift offering, consider adding to the host’s barware + entertaining collection with a piece from Artierors Home.
If there’s one thing you count on during the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s that all of us in the DDD are here to help make your season as simple and seamless as possible. So, take a trip down to our next of the woods and be on your way to crossing all those gifts off your list, and enjoying + embracing the real reason for the season. Happy holidays, y’all!
