Succulent Native started with just a push cart that traveled around Austin selling mini cacti and arrangements. Now, the founder Shannon Donaldson continues that succulent dream with a brick-and-mortar storefront located on North Lamar. The Succy Love Gift Box comes with a mini cacti arrangement, a candle, a sugar scrub and a succulent chocolate locally made by chocolatier SRSLY Chocolates. This gift box, along with the other themed boxes they offer, can be shipped locally in Austin or picked up right in the store.
This local pop-up is a new company and only about a year old. When Melia Janae began woodworking, she didn’t know exactly all that woodworking entailed but has since grown to create beautiful pieces of decor for a home or office. This minimalist docking station crafted from red oak wood allows the user to make it their own to store their most used daily items. Each product is handcrafted and shipped within 7 to 10 business days. While the shop does not have a brick-and-mortar location, you can watch out on Instagram to see when she will pop up as a vendor at various festivals throughout the year, or simply order online.
milk + honey was founded by Alissa Bayer in 2006, a pioneer in Austin’s clean beauty space. Originally, the business began as a single spa focused on exceptional customer experience and commitment to clean, non-toxic ingredients. Even during construction, Bayer maintained that the spa use “green” construction materials. Now, milk + honey has grown to six spa locations and has since launched a product line so customers may experience milk + honey in their own homes. For the holidays, they have curated four milk + honey gift sets that anyone would love, including Art of the Bath, Self Care Minis, Skincare Heroes and Travel Essentials. Pair a gift set with a milk + honey spa package for the most luxurious holiday experience.
