Exits & All the Rest by Girl in a Coma
We’re jamming to Girl in a Coma, a band out of San Antonio, and loving their chill, Mazzy Star vibe. Exits & All the Rest ($10) is the third album from the alt-rock trio.
Hat Box Haberdashery Hats
We don’t miss much about the 1950s (hello, feminism), but we’re suckers for a gentleman who sports dapper headwear. Hat Box Haberdashery’s classic hats ($48 and up) are sure to look sharp, no matter what else you’re wearing.
Waterstone Succulents Sculptures
Succulents are resilient little plants, but these playful sculpted versions are truly black thumb-proof. Available in a variety of colors and shapes, Waterstone Succulents Sculptures ($22 and up) are the perfect indestructable nature-inspired gift.
T-We Tea Foggy Morning Brekkie
If you can’t be bothered to get out of bed before your morning cuppa, T-We Tea’s Foggy Morning Brekkie blend ($10) has ceylon, assam, keemun and nilgiri to wake you up smiling.
Merrick Pet Food
Your furry friend is part of the family, so feed them farm fresh, locally sourced food. Merrick pet food (prices vary) come in a wide variety, so even your pup can dine on Grammy’s Pot Pie.
