It’s the most wonderful time of the year! With that, there are many things to do to get ready for the holidays. Between decking the halls of your home, planning holiday parties, and finalizing safe travel plans, it’s easy to push gift shopping off to the last minute. Fortunately, the showrooms + shops of the Dallas Design District are here to help make it a merry experience for everyone on your list.
Parents + Grandparents
When it comes to gifting the people who have given you everything, it’s usually sentimental and thoughtful gifts that mean the most to parents and grandparents. What better gift than something that is customizable to fit a cherished memory (or to make a new one)? Make a stop at Dahlgren Duck for custom, luxury china, crystal, flatware, and linens to spruce up your family’s home. If antiques are more their things, check out Jan Showers & Associates for stunning glass sets, unique decanters, or luxury frames to hold a family portrait. To get even more specific, if they have a taste for European Antiques, visit Uncommon Market where you can find one-of-a-kind decorative boxes perfect for jewelry, European Roe Horns that are fitting for hunting enthusiasts, and cast stone statues to add a European touch to any home’s exterior.
Siblings + Close Friends
Want to give a gift that is fashionable and functional to your sibling or close friends? Look no further than the great, fun home decor finds that DDD offers. If you’re searching for something that combines traditional + modern styles, check out Acquisitions Dallas where you’ll find aesthetic mirrors, chic throw pillows, and marble-top side tables that can spruce up any room. Or stop by Twelve Twenty Dallas for some 18th-century to mid-century modern coffee table statues, lamps, and colorful wall art. If they fit the saying “I’m not for everyone”, then you must make a trip to Scout Design Studio where they offer exclusive artwork, customizable vintage furniture, and smaller gifts from customizable key tags to lantern accents and candle holders.
That Special Someone
While it may be difficult to not feel pressure about what to get for your significant other, it’s usually the little things, like time spent with you, that mean the most. So, what better gift than the gift of experience? We suggest a fun cooking class (or a handful of classes) at The Cookery where you can join in on one of their classes focused on a variety of cuisines, such as Steakhouse, Best of Brunch, and Sushi Arigato, by visiting their event calendar. If they’re a music or entertainment lover, consider getting concert tickets to an upcoming show at The HiFi Dallas by visiting their event calendar. Or if a staycation is more their thing, then book a few days at Virgin Hotels Dallas where you can enjoy room service, stop by the Funny Library Coffee Shop for a morning pick up, and have a date night at Commons Club.
Hostess + Gift Exchanges
Avoid showing up empty-handed to any type of holiday function this season by stocking up on giftables from the shops at DDD. The perfect place for your first pit stop is Ascension where you can purchase at-home brews, including Ethiopia, Colombia, Brazil, and Guatemala blends. And don’t hesitate to pair it with DDD restaurant gift cards from Pie Tap Pizza, Delucca, El Bolero, or The Charles. If you don’t see your favorite DDD restaurant listed here, inquire directly with the location to see if they offer gift cards.
If there’s one thing you can count on this holiday season, it’s that all of us at the DDD are here to help make your prepping + planning as simple and seamless as possible. Make the holidays that much more cherry with a trip down to our neck of the woods and be on your way to crossing off your gift list in no time - you might even find a special gift to treat yourself to! Happy holidays from the DDD!
