The Giving Season
Rustic silver embellished boxes from J. Alexander are perfect for men and women. They’re right at home on an office desk or a bedroom side table, $125; M.L. Leddy’s.
A classic squash blossom necklace should be on everyone’s “things that say Texas” shopping list. This vintage 1955 piece is stunning in its workmanship and simplicity, $3,500; M.L. Leddy’s.
Here’s a Texas wine that will impress even your snobby friends. It’s from Calais Winery in Hye. Owner Benjamin Calais is a Frenchman who’s lived in Texas for years. He knows grapes, and he knows what grows best in the Lone Star State. The wines are available only at Calais, and some require membership. But gift the 2016 Cuvée du Manoir tempranillo ($59.12 per bottle) to a red wine lover and expect a very gracious thank-you in return.
