Give gifts that feel like home. East Texas has so many great shops that we struggled to narrow it down to just these listed, but we do hope that this guide reminds you that shopping locally makes a difference in your community. 

Madi’s Picks:

The White Peacock, Lufkin

The White Peacock in downtown Lufkin is a local favorite. They have an enticing wall of infused olive oils and vinegars, along with all kinds of unique spices, teas, snacks, condiments, sweets, kitchen tools, and so much more! They even have a variety of gift sets that are perfect for gift giving.  

Rudy’s Honey, Livingston

Rudy’s Honey is not your average local honey. They have creamed honeys, honey straws, and even skincare products. Everything is made with local East Texas wildflower honey, so you know it’s sure to be amazing! 

Farmhouse Bakery, Lufkin

The Farmhouse Bakery has all kinds of treats to gift anyone and everyone! From little bon bons and cupcakes to homemade pies and cinnamon rolls, Farmhouse Bakery can help you check everyone off your list. 

Home Grown, Livingston

Home Grown just might be Livingston’s cutest shop! They are Texas to their core, and we love it! You won’t find their East Texas stickers and t-shirts anywhere else. Homegrown is perfect for anyone on your list who loves their East Texas roots! 

Misty’s Picks:

A Furniture Fetish, Lufkin

A Furniture Fetish has an incredible selection of unique furniture and household finds. Head to downtown Lufkin or their online shop to find your home’s new statement piece.

Goodwill, Nacogdoches

Goodwill always has fun finds, but Nac’s store seems to be filled with extra fun bargains! For a fun holiday adventure, take the family or a group of friends, set a limit, and see who can make the craziest outfit on a budget.

Twigs and Twine is known for their delicious and nutritious teas. Take a quick drive to Corrigan to check out the teas, gifts, and food, or get a tea through delivery!

Texas Pick:

Gokey’s Old Town Emporium and Creamery, Goodrich

Gokey’s is full of old school charm and nostalgia. They have all kinds of antiques, seasonal gifts, Texas themed items, and unique finds. If you’re looking for a fun experience for kids of any age, Gokey’s has an old-fashioned candy counter and ice cream for a fun, sweet treat!
