2018 Holiday Gift Guide!

It’s that time of year again! Time to get that perfect gift for all the special people in your life! If you’re like me, you started picking out gifts months ago and your Amazon cart is a hot mess and the anxiety is getting overwhelming! I’m here to help simplify the shopping process and let you in on some of my favorite things in Dallas and beyond!

For the Boozehound:

Fistful of Bourbon was a new release in 2018 and is the first American Bourbon from the whiskey makers that brought you Tullamore D.E.W. and Glenfiddich. Fistfull has quickly become a staple for my bar and is perfect for any whiskey/bourbon lover in your life. It retails for about $25.

Speaking of Glenfiddich, they came out with number 4 in their Experimental Series, Fire and Cane. A sweet and smoky single malt Scotch for those on your shopping list with a sophisticated palate! This will cost you a bit more but certainly won’t break the bank as it retails for around $50.

For the Workaholic:


As someone who has Scoliosis and suffers from chronic back pain, Stretch Zone has been a life changer! With two locations (Plano and Preston Center) Stretch Zone is a great gift for everyone, not just for pain management! Think of it as a lazy persons yoga! Trust me, you will feel like a new person after! For more info, check out their website here. The best part? Your first 30 minute stretch is complimentary!
