Living La Vida Local

Consult this handy Kidbits gift guide to find presents locally, not far and wide.

_‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through our town
gifts were lying under trees just waiting to be found.
Moms had consulted this Kidbits gift guide
And bought presents locally, not far and wide._

For Little Noggins
Cozy _and_ cute. What could be better than that? These unique, handmade hats from Austin's own Sweetpeatoadtots will elevate the winter blahs into the winter _ahhhhs_. Sweet for babies and fun for bigger kids too.

For the Budding Chef
Take pretend play to a whole new level with these amazingly realistic, over-the-top adorable felt food sets from Tate's Tastees. Whether you opt for the sensible salad or sushi sets, or spring for the more decadent banana split, chicken and waffles or fondue ensemble they'll be dying to throw their very own fancy dinner party.

For the Baby-Loving Baby
Nothing could be more classic then Madame Alexander's _Huggums_ baby doll. Chances are you had one as a child and now it's time to pass the torch to your very own little momma-in-training. If you want a variety of skin colors and outfits to choose from, look no further than central Austin. No one has a better selection of these tried and true originals then Kerby Lane Doll shop.

For your Sweet Señor
A luxe, custom guayabera from San Antonio's Dos Carolinas is sure to fit his style. You can choose everything from the embroidery technique to the monogram placement, making Pops proud with south-of-the-border tradition that turns casual wear into dressy and dressy into comfortable to wear. Also now available at The Texas Clothier.

For You (with yours)
A personalized way to carry the ones you love close to your heart: a set of word tags from Zahavah. Chose your favorite length of chain and customize the tags with your family's names, initials or dates of birth. Birth stones can also be added to the mix for some sentimental sparkle.
