Every holiday season, we are bombarded with advertisements for the latest sales, and it seems like every store is trying to outshine one another with Black Friday shopping. Instead of going to the big box stores, take the path less-traveled, and head to these local shops in Dallas Forth Worth that have great unique holiday gifts!
For the bookworm on your list
If your gift list includes a bookworm or two, you’ll want to be sure to stop by /serj/ when you’re roaming around downtown. This unique shop is the perfect place to uncover some fantastic hardcovers. Each book is handpicked, ensuring the selection is diverse and ever-changing. Come for the shopping experience, and stay for a bowl of soup or a cup of Joe because the cafe side of this establishment is just as intriguing as its book selection.
As an added reason to buy your books here, 10% of all book sales benefit LIFT, supporting adult literacy. Who could say no to a gift that keeps on giving?!

For all of your friends and family with a sweet tooth:
If someone on your gift list has a soft spot for sugary substances, head to the Bishops Arts District in Oak Cliff where the folks at Dude, Sweet Chocolate will introduce you to an entire world of cocoa-containing deliciousness.

For the good old fashioned Texas cowboy (or cowgirl):
For high-quality Western wear, head to a part of town where the days of getting to town on horseback are still quite apparent in the 1800s structures. Wild Bill’s Western Store has been serving Texans a heavy dose of Southern hospitality for over 40 years, making it a go-to place for people who are looking for great gifts for the cowboys or cowgirls on their lists.
