With all the hustle and bustle around the holiday season it's always good to remember to shop local! I know the "shop small" trend is drilled into everyones head right after the Thanksgiving, but I think reiterating the importance of keeping Houston businesses around is something that should be remembered year-round. I have complied a list of my favorite local businesses (besides yours truly!) that everyone should check out around this time of year.
In no particular order, here we go:
Paris Texas Apparel Co.
A nearby favorite of mine is Paris Texas Apparel Co. They have unique gifts for almost everyone on your wish list. One of my personal favorite range of items they carry are their graphic t-shirts. There is a shirt for nearly anyone, each featuring a quirky saying and extremely comfortable fabric.
For the little ones in your life, CuteHeads has everything you need. From Toddlers to Infants, they have unique and comfortable looks for any über stylish children you may know. I personally love any of their accessories, all of which are the perfect go to gift this holiday season.

For the holidays, you can't go wrong with a good old-fashion Goode Company pie.The Houston staple has be around since the 80s and hasn't stop serving up delicious vittles ever since.

I couldn't finish up this list without including Bering's, a Houston local must-have. Since their beginnings in 1949, they have been serving the community's home goods needs non-stop. If you're looking to grab that last minute touch on your way to that holiday party, Bering's is a must.
