Christmas is already THIS TUESDAY! Most people like to do their Christmas shopping the last weekend, which seems crazy, but I understand how busy people might be. I want to help make your life a little easier by giving you some local shops you could get some creative, meaningful gifts on a budget! I am also searching social media for new shops owned by El Pasoans, to help support local owners.

Bomb Beauty Products
As one of my new obsessions, Bomb Beauty Products gives local artists a place to sell their work and help you look fabulous! As a growing cosmetic shop, they have been expanding into clothing and other fun accessories. They also like to hold local markets to help build a community of other hungry artists ready to provide you with much-needed gifts. They will actually have two-holiday events this Saturday and Sunday, which is perfect for those of you looking for last minute gifts.

Hippie Girl Natural Products I absolutely adore these products because they are the only soap bars that have actually helped improve my skin. I have adult acne and all I want for Christmas is for it to GO AWAY! I have used these products since August and my face has cleared up so much! They have great products for thin/lose of hair, candles, bath bombs, candles and really tons of great stuff! They even have premade gift baskets so it is even easier to just stop by and pick one up ASAP!

Chuco Relic
For some of the best local shirts, you need to head to Chuco Relic! You will find it inside Downtown El Paso and in Montecillo. Their famous 'Just the Tip' shirt has been my choice of gift to give the men in my life. I even chose another really cool skull one for this year's brother-in-law gift. Chuco Relic works with local artists to create these styles such as Mocha Designs and EP Goon.

So El Paso SO El Paso is an adorable store full of local delights. If you need a gift to send to a loved one out of town, then this is the place you need to go to, in order to capture that local flavor. Literally, they sell El Paso flavors like salsa, chips, and snacks, which I know my brother in California is always missing. Give the gift of El Paso flavors like Jalapeno Bacon Jam!

Red Door Vintage
For those in your life with an old soul, head to Red Door Vintage. Right now, they have a MASSIVE moving sale going on right now as they move from Mesa to Montana. I am always looking out for these great deals because of their vintage items such as dresses, decor and event shoes. There is too many things to describe inside this shop so you just need to check it out for yourself and snag a great deal!

Dreadful Things For those that love very unique/weird things then Dreadful Things is the place you need to check out for the perfect gift. This store is filled with crystals, horror movie merch, sage, bobbleheads, skulls and so much more. It really is a gorgeous store that you need to take time to go through and ask questions. For those that love good vibes, then get them something from this store.

Ink Society/Ready to Dye Hair Gallery
For those who want the gift of tattoos and good looks then head to Ink Society for your tats and then just walk a few steps into Ready to Die for your hair/wax/nail needs. I've had work done by the lovely Veronica Lee and trust her to permanently mark me for life and feel pretty comfortable with telling others to do the same. She along with many other local artists have teamed up to make this Montana paradise of treating yo' self to pampering and ink. This year my Dad wants a tattoo so this will be where he will receive his gift for sure. Maybe I can talk him in getting an Xmas theme manicure too.
