Houston Tidbits Gift Guide

It's time for the annual Houston Tidbits Gift Guide - happy shopping, merry everything!

You started at 8 a.m. on Black Friday and haven't stopped since, yet you _still_ don't have gifts picked out for your girlfriends. Unwrap these treasures - we hope they're as original as your gal pals themselves.

For your dairy best friend
_You bring the gouda, I'll get the wine._ This is how true friendships are formed. Give her a gift box of three individually wrapped goodies from our favorite local cheesemongers, The Houston Dairymaids, and she'll _brie_ yours forever.!br


For the Southern belle
She pulls off a double name and drinks from a monogrammed koozie. Nothing says precious preppy like the Junior League necklace from Pomp & Circumstance. The site is home grown and you'll be charmed, we're sure. (Enter GOTIDBITS at checkout for 20% off the entire site through December 22.)

For the total Martha in the kitchen
The Hollywood hottie behind everyone's fave Love and Mary target="_blank">Crave Cupcakes screened at SXSW to rave reviews, and it's loaded with scenes shot throughout H-town, like at Tootsie's and Felix.

For the girl who can't keep her mouth shut
Give her something (else) to talk about. The heavenly gift shop Tansu stocks Table Topics. Just add wine, and the handy cards are promised to get your next girls' night going. With questions like, "If you had to gain 10 pounds, what would you eat to gain the weight?", you're sure to find one that will leave her tongue-tied.

For the zen-like, calming force in your life
She doesn't need caffeine in the morning. She abstains from drinking, reality TV and gossiping. (Yet somehow, you two get along). She always dispenses soothing advice, so tell her thanks with a canister of herbal comfort from Path of Tea.
