Whether you’re shopping for a co-worker who loves where they work and live or making a care package for a friend in the army who finds themselves stationed far from home, the gift of something that’s made in Texas has a value far beyond its price tag. Locally made gifts can bring a little comfort to the recipient that is much needed, regardless of the season, and can remind them of their favorite memories from home. And, this can make you a better person in a number of ways. Not only does it show that you truly thought of the individual to whom you were gifting it, but it also shows that you thought about those workers and businesses just trying to make a living right here at home. When you shop local, you support local economies. Here are three great Texas-made gifts that can help you do just that.

1. Western Wear/Footwear

Wild Bill’s Western Store, located in Dallas, has some amazing stock that will not only remind the recipient of home but allow them to dress like they’re really there. And, they may very well be – so all the better! Boots, hats, and clothing with some great made-in-Texas labels are always a good thing.

2. Sauces and Seasonings for Season’s Greetings

Briggs True Texas Sauces & Seasonings is a great Texas company which is bold and offers something for everyone. If the recipient you’re shopping for likes to cook or has a food passion, they’ll love getting something from Briggs. They feature a line of specialty seasonings and sauces as well as rubs for some great Texas barbecue. They also have a line of Houston Hot Sauce made from fire-roasted chiles and a Jalapeño Sauce that works well on any southwestern delicacy.

3. Coffee and All Things in Between
