The Gift Guide

A gift to our fabulous readers: a guide for everyone on your list.

Dear Santa's Good Girls (and those of you who slipped under the radar):

The San Antonio Tidbits Team happily spends all our time scouting out things for you to do, see, wear, drink and eat, and now we want to give each of you a special gift idea for the holidays- the gift of knowing exactly where to shop for all those people on your list. Happy shopping, merry everything! (Mention San Antonio Tidbits for the exclusive discounts listed below.)

Your little elves

For the girl who pretends she's sugary-sweet
This Gingerbread House Kit from Dylan's Candy Bar (that's Ralph Lauren's daughter) is as fun to open as it is to assemble. The Gretel on your list can decorate with style, if she can make it through the supplies without sampling. _Available at Neiman Marcus._

For the preppy princess
She sleeps in her pearls and monograms everything, so she's sure to be giddy over this super-feminine $90 "tuxedo" clutch. The hand-pleated silk charmeuse, ribbon finishing and ticking-print lining make the design a stand-out. Take 15% off all tuxedo clutches at Bella Bridesmaid before December 15th.

For the gossip girl
What you really wish she'd cover up is her mouth, but instead find a way to sweetly tell her pasty isn't pretty. She'll love accessorizing with the luxe one-size-fits-all black opaque leggings by Fabric & Fabric. We can't find a pair we like better. Take 20% off one pair at The Shoe Club before December 15th.

For the total Martha in the kitchen
Happy homemakers will love these $18 uber-soft organic cotton tea towels from Plover Organics. The distinctive designs are block-printed by hand, and the gift is a nod to her excellent taste. Available online and in-store at Red in Fredericksburg.

For the hottie with the body
The Swiss-made Luminox watches have been engineered to fit the ranks of the Navy Seals, so they're good enough for your tough guy. Whether he's yachting, diving or boardrooming, the sharp styles glow for more than 25 years. _Available at Shetler Wade Jewelers._

For the gal who likes to get merry under the mistletoe
Lips look fuller and fine lines disappear with this miracle boost in a bottle, the Vivité Defining Lip Plumper. She'll be extra kissable come Christmas with your thoughtful gift. Take 20% off this item at the office of Michael E. Decherd, M.D. before December 15th.
