The Tidbits Gift Guide

She's picky, but you can please her. Presenting gifts that pack a holiday punch.

1. Ballooms of San Antonio // Make a memorable impact for any celebration with Ballooms of San Antonio - they’re balloons that bloom! The 7 foot tall awe-worthy balloon installations are perfect for front yards and events. Consider a holiday sentiment or symbols, numerals and shapes in all colors including ombre and metallics. The gals behind the biz install the structure, then come back a few days later to take it down.

2. Hiatus Spa + Retreat // For your favorite spa lover or the friend who deserves serious relaxation this season, the Bright & Early gift card sale at Hiatus Spa + Retreat offers a sweet discount on gift cards to use on divine services or the in-house selection of luxe pampering products. Get $125 worth of gift cards for $99 through Nov 29. 

3. Bird & Pear // Hung with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.... Bird & Pear in La Villita has brand new Mexican dress stockings, $69. Call the shop to reserve yours, or browse other handmade goods made with Guatemalan fabrics, like serape striped bowties and cummerbunds sets for dapper gents, and monogrammed makeup bags.

4. Shetler Fine Jewelers // Stride into the holidays in style with an assortment of statement and stack rings from Shetler Fine Jewelers. We're swooning over the entire selection, especially this Zoe Chicco 14k yellow gold three row diamond ring, pictured.
