5 Fantastic Lubbock Businesses for Last-Minute Christmas Gifts
Still shopping for the perfect Christmas gift for friends, coworkers or someone you love? Lubbock has many fantastic options for great gift giving. Here are a few of my favorites.
Adornments Jewelry Studio4519 50th Street
Since I already gave it to her, I can say that this is where I got my mom her Christmas present. There is truly something elegant, classy, funky or fun for everyone here, no matter their personality or style. On-trend, unique jewelry pieces from dainty pearls to chunky druzy, from radiant topazes to earthy turquoise. There's a great selection of men's jewelry, too. And the jeweler himself is usually there to answer any questions or to help you find the perfect piece. He's also a really nice, local guy. And if you find something you love for yourself, he keeps a wish list notebook so your loved ones will know what to get you.
Ralph's Records & Tapes3322 82nd Street
Ralph's is the best option for the music, movie or video game lover in your life. I collect vinyl, and they always have several titles I want in stock. Ralph's carries everything from vintage game consoles to new music releases, record players, headphones, concert tickets, tapestries, posters, stickers and more. I also own several of their $5 t-shirts. If you don't quite know what to get, Ralph's has great-looking gift cards in any amount.
Tumbleweed Botanicals2610 Salem Avenue
Tumbleweed Botanicals, tucked into the charming Cactus Alley shopping center, is a fantastic place for gifts. Herbologist Sue handcrafts many of the shops tinctures, lotions, salves and more. Ask her about the Rosehip Oil; it has vastly improved the texture of my skin.
In addition to body care, Tumbleweed Botanicals also carries an array of fun gifts, from very affordable incense to stunning crystal formations. I also really love her "tea baths" for a long luxurious and non-messy soak in the tub.
Star Comics2014 34th Street
Star Comics is a wonderful place to get comics, graphic novels, manga and more for any age or taste. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and will help you select a great title for the person you are shopping for. They also carry tons of figurines, posters and other memorabilia. You can also get tickets to 2018's Lubbock-Con while you're there.
Mad Hatter's House of Games1509 Texas Avenue
Mad Hatter's House of Games is ideal gift giving for any type of board gamer or card player in your life. They carry tournament-style card games, traditional board games, D&D type games and more. It's also a wonderful place to "escape" and play on their tables. Just call ahead to see if they have table space open.
