Although the current circumstances sometimes make it feel like it is still 2020 and March has just been a really, really long month, the truth is 2021 is already coming to an end.
You know what that means—it's time to prepare for holiday shopping!
But before you go click-happy on Amazon, consider that now more than ever, it's important to shop in our community. Yes, ours. Zendira is a proudly Austin-based company and we’re excited to support other local brands this holiday season. Sadly, our collection is still in production, but until our first collection is released, these Austin-based options will provide exceptional gifts that boast quality, sustainability, and affordability.
There's something for everyone here; why don't you take a look?
For functionality: Klik Belts
If you or someone you know is an avid hiker, rock or mountain climber, or even fishing enthusiast, then a gift from Klik Belts offers the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics.
Designed with high-quality materials to guarantee maximum performance, Klik Belts offers a wide range of belts—from the specialized to the casual. Look your best and ensure your loved ones do so as well, without waist-ing any money.
Don't groan. We'll see ourselves out.
For affordable luxury: Kendra Scott
Perhaps it's a cliché, but Marilyn Monroe said it best: diamonds are a girl's best friends.
Jewelry is never a bad gift—either for others or to treat yourself. Kendra Scott designs every piece offered within their collections in their Austin studio and provides a wide variety of options that suit almost anyone's tastes.
For the Western goods lover: Tecovas
Having a good pair of boots is not only a Texas thing but a thing in general (especially in winter). The exceptional craftsmanship involved in creating a single, good pair of cowboy boots is something that never goes out of fashion.
Investing in high-quality, locally made boots guarantees a pair of exceptional endurance, style, and functionality.
These boots are made for walkin', but they do a lot more than that. If yours don't, then maybe consider purchasing a good pair of Tecovas boots for the holidays.
For the sports enthusiast: Austin FC
Soccer has taken over the world by storm. The United States didn't join the worldwide hype for a long time, but the tides have been changing, and Texas is the most recent addition.
With Austin FC joining the MLS this 2021 season, you can also join the hype by purchasing tickets to watch the games or the team's official merchandise. Even if soccer isn’t your thing, there's a chance that your friends and family will have a blast.
For high spirits during the holidays: Tito's Vodka
The holiday season is the time to be happy and jolly, and nothing brings better joy than an exceptional handmade vodka, if you catch our drift.
Set yourself up for joyous holiday spirits with the right spirits. Tito's Handmade Vodka has provided Austin with exceptional, 100% gluten-free vodka for twenty years with old-fashioned pot stills, making sure to taste-test every batch.
Best part? Tito's Vodka is committed to social justice and improvement, providing a scholarship fund and investment for racial equity.
