All lit up and decked out for the holidays, 2ND Street District is home to Austin-owned boutiques, award-winning local fare and entertainment that makes it the perfect holiday stroll.

Here, our picks for 9 stylish gifts that await. 

1. League of Rebels // Make his feet happy. Slip on a pair of Clipper Rainbow socks formed from bamboo viscose. The perfect combination of style and comfort, the socks have naturally odor-resistant, moisture-wicking properties that keep feet cool and comfortable.

2. LACQUER // Ho ho haute. Nail it this holiday season with a gift certificate to Austin’s hottest nail studio, LACQUER. Gift certificates are sold in any denomination and can be redeemed for products or services.

3. Luxe Apothetique // The handcrafted, locally-made Rebekah Vinyard necklace features a beautiful pink mosaic stone suspended inside of a triangle and hung from an antiqued snake chain. The adjustable sliding clasp makes for a stunning back detail.

4. Le Politique // The perfect hostess gift in a pinch, pretty, authentically delicious macarons from the pâtissierie at Le Politique are packaged and ready to put in your party sleigh. 6 for $12.50.

5. Upstairs Circus // Join the Circus—this is where DIY workshop meets bar. Gifts mean more when you hand-make them yourself. Make everyone ooh and aah with personalized flasks, 6-pack carriers and custom jewelry. The super-pretty gift cards are ideal for the crafty gals on your list.

6. Sikara & Co. // A stroll around this shop is akin to taking a journey around the world. The contemporary jewelry line is inspired by the travel photography of Austinite founder Mousumi Shaw. Mention Austin Tidbits and earn a $50 gift card with purchase of $250 or more.

7. Sneaker Politics // Woodsy and masculine with a hint of cherry wood sweetness and a clean, citrusy scent, the Politics Tea and Tobacco candle is suited to a summer night on the porch, a quiet study session or burning right next to the entrance of your home.  

8. milk + honey // The relaxation haven just launched their holiday gift guide featuring new limited-edition holiday spa packages and non-toxic clean beauty products. Along with their bath and body care gift sets and a gift card for a luxurious massage or facial, it’s the ultimate pampering gift.

9. Blu Dot // Think of it as functional origami without paper cuts. Available in space blue (pictured), copper, black and white, the stylish 2D:3D bowls are laser-cut, powder-coated steel and come in several sizes. The pieces are packed flat and assembly is fun—enjoy bending the flat steel into functional shapes.

All of these for purchase at 2ND Street District.
