Find the perfect holiday gifts from these local LBK spots!
• December 10, 2020
Although the holiday season might look a little different for some of us this year, the gift of giving doesn’t have to.
Since we love supporting small businesses, we’ve called upon some of our local experts to help find the perfect gift for your loved ones, near and far, to help them remember the beauty of Lubbock...on any budget!
A Little Extra Red Raider Swagger
Sideline puts a modern flare on the collegiate gear you want to wear. From onesies to polos, down jackets, and hats, there’s something for everyone come game day!
Fresh Blueberry and Lavender Scones
“The lavender blueberry scone was truly one of the best scones I've ever had — honestly it was probably the absolute best scone I've had. Moist and delicious with wonderfully fresh blueberries, and delicious lavender seeds throughout. The scone alone was worth the stop by.”
Monomyth Coffee’s mantra has always been to make people happy, and they sure don’t disappoint, especially when it comes to pairing their coffees with their freshly baked, in-house delights!
Craft, Smoked Meats with “Real Texas Grit”
“...stop what you are doing right now and get some of those spare ribs. If I could eat those ribs every day I would. Unreal flavor. Enough grip on the bone that they held on for a good bite but the meat was perfectly tender.”
Even though Hill Barbecue is known for its exclusive hours (Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to sellout!), it’s the never-ending lack of flavor that really has people lining up for more.
New Year, New You!
“This is THE best hair salon in Lubbock. Such a beautiful space with wonderful hairstylists. I always get compliments on my hair, no matter the color or cut.”
Rouge Beauty Parlor has everything you need to find the perfect gift for the beauty guru in your life. Because sometimes, all it takes to reveal the confidence and beauty within is just an exciting haircut, a dramatic color shift, or even a subtle makeup change.
World Class, West Texas Wine
“I recently bought a bottle of the 2016 Viognier and all I can say is WOW. I have experienced wine from some of the most amazing wine farms in South Africa and always told everyone how much I hated American wines. This bottle is exquisite; I went back to the bottle store and bought all they had.”
What says “It’s the holidays!” more than a box of world-class, West Texas McPherson Cellars wine shipped straight to your front door!
Choose between four, eight, or 12-bottle shipments delivered three times/year, straight to the doorstep of your favorite wine connoisseur.
Looking for a simple stocking stuffer instead? Grab a bottle of red, white, or sparkling wine that sings of your favorite downtown memories.
One-Of-A-Kind Home Decor
“You know that amazing thing you saw on HGTV? Been looking for just the right piece to tie a room all together? Well, this is the place.”
Hunt down a gift so unique there’s no doubt there was time, attention, and thought placed into finding those one-of-a-kind treasures.
From old school authentic antiques to garden accessories that make every night out on the porch a West Texas luxury, Jux-Ta-Posh has it all.
An Upscale Dining Experience
“The food here was incredible, and even with the new social distance layout, we liked the atmosphere. We had attentive, friendly service and they made sure cocktails, appetizers, and entrees were all just right...We will not wait for the next special occasion to be back!”
Looking to gift an experience within an experience?
The West Table Kitchen and Bar is cradled in the middle of Lubbock’s historic Pioneer Pocket Hotel, giving any diner a first-hand glimpse into the Lubbock of decades past while experiencing the fresh, seasonal ingredients that make up the cuisine of America’s future.
A New Sense of Self-Confidence
“Howard Thrash has expertly assisted me with many clothing purchases since 1991. The quality of the clothing, tailoring and personal attention is superior. When I needed something quickly, he was there. I have also purchased custom suits and shirts from Howard and they are a real treat to enjoy. Thank you HG for all your help over all these years.”
H.G Thrash Clothier is a small, family-owned business with a detailed eye on modern men’s fashion.
Whether someone you know is in the market for a casual look, a tailored one-of-a-kind garment, or a brand new sense of self-confidence, look no further than Lubbock’s own H.G. Thrash.
Connection to Hub City Culture
“Wonderful every single time. I was surprised (although I really shouldn’t have been) at how good this orchestra was and is! Tremendous! The conductor is amazing! Every concert has been masterfully put together. I love going to every concert all year! I’ve seen orchestras in Dallas, Austin, and NYC and Lubbock is just as good (maybe even better) than any of them!”
Music has the power to transform us all. When the sound hits our ears and the reverberation permeates our bones, we know we’ve embarked upon a moment hard-pressed to forget.
For the person who seems to have it all, a donation to the Lubbock Symphony Orchestra, a cornerstone of culture in the Hub City, might just be the perfect gift.
Finding the perfect gift doesn’t mean searching for hours on the internet. Just look in our very own backyard for those local gifts that are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s holiday season!
