GIFT GUIDE // Mockingbird Domestics




























FOR THOSE WHO LOVE TEXAS MADE 

Mockingbird Domestics knows good design. But they also know good design that’s being made right here in Texas! Their showroom is full of gorgeous and eclectic pieces that make the perfect addition to a well-appointed home. Here are some of their favorite gift picks for those who have an appreciation for goods with a modern aesthetic made by Texas artisans!

  1. We are seriously obsessed with everything made by Bexar Goods. These guys make every bag by hand, and we love how they mix waxed canvas and leather in a manner that’s perfectly androgynous. The Cruiser Roll Top Tote is perfect for the everyday adventurer. $240

  2. Everything designed by local designer duo Satchel & Sage is delicate and colorful. But they aren’t afraid to get really graphic with their prints. The Sea Star print in this handmade pillowcase is great for print lovers and those who can’t get enough fun pillows. $47

  3. Sometimes we buy ceramics just for show, but all of Keith Kreeger’s handmade pieces are beautiful and functional. We love the simplicity of porcelain, and this delicate sugar-creamer set would be perfect for some who celebrates fine pottery and loves to use it too! $95

  4. With cooler weather comes the need for having cozier blankets around the house. And Stone Textile’s bamboo throws are pretty great for getting cozy. This local textile designer has a way with textiles, and stripes have never looked so cozy as this Chunky Stripe Throw does. $375

  5. Don’t forget stocking stuffers! These little Texas-shaped beeswax candles make fine little gifts. Beeswax Co. uses 100% beeswax in their candles and only in the purest form. That means no artificial scents or colorants—just sweet-smelling beeswax! 

  6. And while we love Son of a Sailor jewelry, Jessica and William’s graphic prints always come to mind when we’re thinking of the perfect gift for a friend. The simple and bright color palette makes their prints impactful, and we’re very fond of their vintage-inspired designs. $15
Go visit Mockingbird Domestics here in Austin at 2151 South Lamar Boulevard, or on their super fancy website. It’s an inspiring selection of beautiful wares!
