Not quite finished with your holiday shopping? Whether you need presents for friends, family or co-workers, these four local shops have you covered.
The best kind of gifts feel personal, like Ellis Hill’s delicate monogrammed cocktail napkins.
1. Ellis Hill Behind the bright blue doors of this Briarwood jewel box, you’ll find a rainbow-hued collection of paper goods, linens, tableware, bags and party essentials. Ellis Hill offers monogramming for almost everything, from stationery and towels to pillows and cosmetic cases. Thanks to detail-obsessed owners Kerri Davis and Margretta Wikert, and their emphasis on personalization, this shop is Dallas’ go-to spot for all things custom—and your best bet when gift-buying for that girlfriend known as “the entertainer.” 5001 W. Lovers Lane, 214.520.6108, ellis-hill.com
2. Favor the Kind For the boho-chic sister or the always-accessorized co-worker, this Henderson Avenue boutique is a treasure trove of gift options. Peruse apparel, jewelry, bags and scarves, as well as an eclectic selection of knickknacks and home items comprising kitschy coffee mugs, clever tea towels, assorted coffee-table books and colorful throw pillows. 2928 N. Henderson Ave., 214.370.8010, favorthekind.com

3. Jojo Mommy In search of the perfect gift for the chic mom on your list? Look no further than Jojo Mommy. Boasting a new, (much) larger storefront at Lovers and Inwood, Kari Schlegel Kloewer now has even more space to display her well-appointed collection of children’s clothes and accessories. Shop luxe kids clothing brands like Little English, Pixie Lily and Magnolia Baby, as well as precious books, toys, bags and blankets. 7801 Inwood Road, 214.912.1858, jojomommy.com
4. Society by Jackson Vaughn When it comes to choosing a gift for that impossible-to-buy-for friend, a candle is always the right choice. The duo behind design firm Jackson Vaughn made a foray into the candle business after their custom creation for a client, since branded the No. 1 Signature candle, became an instant hit. The team now designs and pours over 40 original scents, which range from fresh florals to warm spices. The dreamy shop is a blend of candles and vintage curios. 403 N. Bishop Ave., 214.942.4600; 8383 Preston Center Plaza Drive, Ste. 140, 214.360.0700, jacksonvaughn.com
