7 Local Brands for Gifts
My husband bought me the cutest pajamas from Katie Kime last year, with Austin landmarks and Willie Nelson on them. They’re the perfect gift for anyone who loves Austin (or any of the other cities she has toile pajamas for — Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, Marfa).
Katie Kime also has home decor, wallpaper, and plenty of things to make your holiday special and charming.
Choose local pickup at the Katie Kime Showroom in Austin if you’re worried about it shipping in time for Christmas!
Use code AUSTINWITHKIDS20 for 20% off an order through the end of the year. Cannot be stacked with other offers.

Nothing makes a home feel cozier than the soft glow of candles — and they have to smell great! Slow North is woman-owned and their products are made in Austin in small batches.
