shopHTX 2016 :: Your One Stop Holiday Shopping Guide

Houston Moms Blog is beyond thankful for all of the generous sponsors below who partnered with us for this year's shopHTX campaign. It is our hope that these fun ideas will encourage you to shop small, shop local, and shopHTX this holiday season!

It’s that time of year again…  The time when we focus on our friends and families, soak up sweet traditions, and of course – do tons of holiday shopping for everyone we hold dear.  So for the second year in a row, we are beyond excited to bring you shopHTX :: your one stop holiday shopping guide!  

In this guide, we focus on all of the different people you might have on your shopping list, from your hard-to-shop-for husband to your artsy young niece to your sister-in-law who is expecting her first bundle of joy.  And as an added bonus, all of these brands have ties to Houston – either because they have storefronts right here in our great city, they are owned / operated by area families, or simply because they are a personal favorite of our team of local moms!

Ready to start shopping? Check out the visual guide for our favorite shopHTX products this holiday season.  Then, be sure to connect with the brands below to start checking gifts off your list!

Kelly D
Kelly is the founder of Houston Moms Blog and has lived in this beautiful city nearly all of her life. She has a degree in education from Texas State University and was honored to teach special education for eight years to some of the cutest little kiddos you could ever meet. While teaching, Kelly met Cody – a tall drink of water and country boy to the core – and together, they fell in love, got married, and decided to start a family. In March 2011, they welcomed Hayes into the world, a silly but smart little boy with a story you have to read to believe. And in April 2013, their family was complete with the addition of Hadley, a super gregarious and oh-so-cute baby girl. Now, Kelly devotes her days to caring for her own little ones…and would not trade this new job of hers for the world! In her not-so-spare time, Kelly loves meeting up with her girlfriends for margaritas, failing miserably at Pinterest projects, and exploring this big old city with her two favorite little side-kicks in tow.
