You survived Thanksgiving. Well done to you! And now you have to brainstorm the best, cutest, or ultimate presents for December 25th. No pressure there! You might have a family member that loves paintings of cats or a friend that's a little more Wes Anderson when it comes to their taste in photography. Don't fret! We compiled a list of local artist you should consider when shopping for holiday gifts for the ones you love the most. Check and double check!
FOR THE ART LOVER IN YOUR LIFE
There isn't a piece in Dawn's collection that doesn't deserve a spot on your wall. It can transform any boring old beige apartment wall into a bold, artistic gallery. Dawn celebrates the female form in her work by bringing an editorial style to her muse's poses and to the color on the canvas where they reside.
We recently came across Allison's work at a Boss Babe event in Austin, and just fell in love with the aesthetics of her work. You can tell that each piece is rooted firmly in her Southwestern/Texan identity. Any of her colorful, nature-focused pieces would make a timeless gift for any art lover. Our personal favorite is the Oaxacan Cat.
FOR THE SARTORIALIST
ASHLEE PRYOR'S CRAFTS & ARTS CLOTHING
You have that friend that everyone always says looks cute and her style is effortless! Well Ashlee Pryor, creative and local designer, has just the collection for your friend. Her designs are forever pieces that you will never run out of ways to way! They are timeless and good to the environment.
REALM BY VANESSA CROOK
You know that friend who always seems to have the coolest stuff. Well, now you can finally get them a great present that is both stylish and makes a statement.
Accessories like hats, pins, and tees are great stocking fillers and the creative mind behind Eythink know how to pick them. Not only are these gifts unique but you will be able to throw proper shade without saying a word. That...could definitely come in handy!
FOX & BRIE
Another great stocking filler are neck-ties and bow-ties. Why settle for ordinary prints when you can get some beautiful colors and patterns from Fox & Brie. This will make a stylish gift for anyone!
FOR BEAUTY AND SKINCARE MAVEN
Prickly pear, vanilla oil, cardamom oil are just a few of the amazing ingredients Nikisha uses in her hair and skin care line. We are a big fan of her natural, holistic skincare products! We highly recommend getting any one of Nikisha's beautifully made butter and serums, for a gift that keep on giving way after the holiday season.
