We’ve curated a list of last-minute gifts here in Austin that are super thoughtful and fun, and will make it seem like you’ve had it all planned out for weeks.

Last-minute Gifts Don’t Have To Be Bad – 5 Local Austin Gifts That Will Wow
1. A Sage Blossom Massage Gift Certificate
A gift certificate from Sage Blossom Massage is a last-minute gift that never feels rushed or thoughtless. Our gift certificates are good for any of our relaxing and rejuvenating services – massage, infrared sauna, salt therapy, stretch therapy, or cupping therapy – or any of our curated spa packages or add-ons. Sage Blossom gift certificates can be purchased online and sent immediately via email or text, or can be printed right at home to be given in-person. This makes them an incredibly simple and convenient option, for both the giver and the receiver.
If you prefer, you can also pick one up at either of our locations – Menchaca or Oak Hill. And we’re currently having a holiday sale on gift certificates, so it’s the perfect time to pick up a last-minute gift that will impress at a discount.

2. Koko’s Guide to Austin
Jane Ko, better known as Koko, is the Austin blogger behind A Taste of Koko. Koko has been blogging about food and travel in Austin and beyond since 2010, and has recently published her first book, “Koko’s Guide to Austin.” This mini travel book can be thrown in a bag and carried around the city. It’s the perfect gift or stocking stuffer for someone new to Austin, or who’s planning on visiting.
3. Paula’s Texas Spirits
When she founded her line of fruit liqueurs in 2005, Paula Angerstein became the first woman and second person ever to be licensed to distill spirits in Texas. With the regional love for margaritas in mind, she first released Paula’s Texas Orange, followed by Paula’s Texas Lemon and Paula’s Texas Grapefruit. If you have a cocktail enthusiast on your Christmas list, these refreshing citrus liqueurs made with fresh citrus zest are sure to be a hit. You can even take it to the next level with a margarita or paloma cocktail kit.
Paula’s Texas Spirits are sold at Total Wine & More, Spec’s and other local retailers. You can find out more about the products on the Paula’s Texas Spirits website.
4. Easy Tiger Merch
Sometimes, you don’t have to go far to get a great gift. So many of our local businesses sell merchandise that really captures the spirit of Austin. This is especially true when it comes to Easy Tiger, the bakery and beer bar that’s been a part of the Austin scene since 2012. They sell charming tote bags, t-shirts, and more that feature their iconic tiger imagery.
5. O’Day Designs Jewelry
Jewelry maker Katrina O’Day is technically based out of San Antonio, but her cute and quirky handcrafted pieces are for sale here in Austin at the Blanton Museum of Art and South 1st Street’s funky art gallery and artisan market Art for the People.
Well, Go Ahead and Get Shopping – And Then Take Some Time for Yourself!
We hope this list helped you out with your last-minute holiday shopping. If you’re still feeling stressed, take some time for yourself this holiday season, and schedule a massage, Salt Therapy, or Infrared Sauna session.
We want you to feel good!
Sage Blossom Massage is your piece of peace in Austin this holiday season.
