The Essential Gift Guide for the Texan in Your Life

Christmas is coming, and we’re all in the same spot right now. What to buy? It’s the perennial question that plagues us each year. Should we go for another scented candle? Lotion? Gift card? Lord, help us. So for those of us who are never quite sure what to put under the tree, here is a Texas gifts guide that will help you get something awesome for the Texan in your life.

The holidays are a time for celebration, so why not keep your wine fresh like a Texan? This state seal wine-stopper will make you feel as classy as a state rep.

14. For the Houstonian in your life:

In case you don’t recognize the inner and outer loop there, these coasters have a map of the city of Houston carved into them. Now your drinks can sweat onto all that Houston traffic that we despise with our very souls. You can get it on Amazon.

13. For the expatriate Texan:

The one thing you hear Texan expats say all the time is that they can’t find good tortillas. Well, as the old saying goes, if you want something done right, do it yourself. So a tortilla press is a fantastic gift. You can get them on Amazon from $12-$30. Here’s a good recipe to use with the press.

12. For the country music lover:

11. For the Texan who loves games:

Cards Against Humanity is an inappropriate and vulgar yet hilarious card game that swept the nation a few years ago. For your friend who loves CAH, give them the Texan expansion pack of Carps & Angsty Manatee, a parody of the official Cards Against Humanity game. This one features Texas-themed cards like “getting punched in the face by a Texas Ranger” and “Inappropriate text messages about JJ Watt”.

10. For the Texas history buff:

Every Texas history buff needs a historic map of Texas on their wall. This one from Amazon is a reprint of an 1866 Schoenberg map.

9. For the fashionable Texan:

If you don’t think Texans want to wear their state shape in every form then you don’t know us as well as you think you do. We will literally get it tattooed on our skin. So this necklace is awesome. You can get it on Amazon.

8. For the Texas beer connoisseur:

You can get delicious beers all over the state of Texas. There’s Big Bend beer from Alpine, and Live Oak Brewing from Austin. St. Arnold’s is a Houston brewery, and of course you can’t forget about Shiner. This is the perfect piece of wall decor for any bar or man cave.

7. For the globetrotting Texan:
