We all love watching Martha Stewart’s Halloween and holiday shows with her great homemade gift and craft segments. Chances are you have tried doing some of those at home like me. When it comes to making something special for my loved ones and clients and ensuring they get something that they don’t already have, there is not time to make everyone a gift basket or homemade item on time. has beautiful works of art and handcrafts as well as handmade furniture available for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Hanukkah.  There are so many great artists in right here in Texas.

You can choose from existing designs or create your own with one-of-kind stained glass pieces from Gary Hivnor of Fairview. Smithsonian worthy woodworking from Tejas Woods of Plano-engraved cutting boards, business card holders, wine stoppers with silver inlay and the state of Texas seal.

For ladies, there is handmade “green” jewelry and ceiling fan pulles made from recycled dominoes from Mystic Angel. Sisters Emporium has beautiful sterling silver pieces that are engraved.  As featured on, they also make “green” furniture from recycled wine barrels-bar stools, coffee tables, plant stands, occasional tables, lazy susans, pot racks and more.

A great way to say “thank you” to clients and employees is to create a custom gift basket with a theme and it does not have to be a Texas theme. We have created gift baskets with gourmet foods from Texas, one for outdoor grilling, one called “Some Like it Hot” featuring mixes, rubs and great chile peppers, seasonings and salsas. We have one for the literary-minded, one for the Longhorn or Aggies #1 fan, the drink connoisseur or sommelier, a Texas art basket, and many more.

The trick is to order by November 15 if you want something made by hand. It is actually made by hand and from scratch and it will take 2-3 weeks.

There is good news for procrastinators out there, we do have available inventory for non-handmade items that can ship in 2-3 days.

For custom gift baskets please allow for 2 weeks from order date to arrival date.

Have fun shopping!
