The Tidbits Gift Guide

She's picky, but you can please her. Presenting gifts that pack a holiday punch.

1. Home Malone // Simply sweet, the Magnolia Tea Towel, designed and printed in New Orleans on a 100% cotton flour sack (no lint!) towel with a hanging loop, is part of the Local Life Linens collection designed in house at Home Malone by owner Kristin Malone. The 10 designs (consider cocktails or oysters instead) make the perfect present.

2. FAIT | NOLA // Make your own nature-inspired ornament. Dive into chakras, crystals and plants at the hands-on workshop at The Church of Yoga where you'll create a unique ornament with an air plant and crystal that links with a chakra calling out to you. Reserve your spot in the $40 workshop on Dec 12. (Scroll to Dec 12).

3. Bonfolk // Your feet should be having more fun. With designs like beignets, po-boys and oysters, the socks from fun-loving NOLA brand Bonfolk make the perfect stocking stuffer for both the guys and gals on your gift list. For every pair sold, one will be donated to a local shelter.

4. Native Polish // Be the most well-polished giver on the block. Party girls love the longevity of 7-free Native Polish, available in on-trend colors like Big Easy Ballin', Beans, Boudin & Brass, and Creole Mustard. Take your local love a step further by packaging a bottle with their new iconic Native name plate necklace, designed in collaboration with New Orleans artist Sarah Ott.

5. Mignon Faget // For a decidedly luxe touch to your holiday ensembles, consider Mignon Faget’s Delta Apex dangle earrings, $112.50 today only (normally $150). The sterling silver geometric pendant earrings are part of the iconic brand’s Connection Collection, inspired by the architecture of the Crescent City Connection and designed on Magazine Street. 

6. Four Rivers Designs // Jetsetters love the Geaux passport covers from local female-owned Four Rivers Designs, available in shades of leather like pretty pale pink and slate gray. Their cocktail clutches are perfect for your holiday party circuit—with an outer hand strap and signature floral lining, you're hands-free to sip and socialize.

7. Sarah Ott // Keep NOLA close to your heart when you’re near or far. The local jewelry designer’s New Orleans pendant necklace is engraved with 29.9574° N, 90.0629° W, the GPS coordinates of Jackson Square. Choose gold vermeil or sterling silver and opt to add a chain or two diamonds to the pendant. In-store or online. 20% off sitewide with TIDBITS20.

8. Bird & Pear // For the guy who likes to tie one on. Dapper gentlemen will love this $40 serape-striped bow tie (and cummerbund to match), available in a variety of colors. Hand-finished with bright colors, adjustable hardware, hand-closed ends on the bows and chambray backing to make it tie properly.
