Shot of Brandi Gift Guide: Texas, Utah & Vermont

Wednesday, December 23, 2015

  1. Texas is the state with the most farmland, so this barn from Land of Nod is a perfect suggestion for a tot on your list!
  2. Cowboy boots and Texas go hand in hand. How awesome is this beer boot?
  3. Beyonce was born in Houston and I bet it’s likely that there is SOMEONE that you know on your list OBSESSED with Queen B. You can find her song lyrics on a lot of items like this mug from Urban Outfitters.

  1. The state symbol of Utah is the beehive because it stands for thrift and industry. Store cookies for your honey in this beehive cookie jar!
  2. Utah gets a lot of snow. Because of this, Salt Lake City has hosted the Winter Olympics.  I really don’t know a lot about gifts for skiers, but I know a lot of people put a GoPro on their helmet. So here’s a GoPro and a helmet cam mount!
  3. Beaver, Utah is the home to the creator of the television. Trends are showing a decline in television watching and a rise of people watching videos or Netflix on their computers, tablets or phones. To watch Netflix on your TV, I recommend Apple TV. It was a lifesaver during the 90 degree temps during my maternity leave!

  • Vermont is the number one producer of maple syrup in the United States. After a trip to Canada in 2011 I discovered that I LOVE maple syrup. There were a lot of online options for Vermont Maple Syrup, but I liked this little cabin tin!
  • One of the most famous companies based in Vermont is Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Honestly, if you bought someone on your list a cooler filled with Ben & Jerry’s, it would probably be one of the coolest gifts ever! (pun intended). This flavor here was inspired by a Saturday Night Live sketch.
  • Sometimes reader husband Brady’s favorite band is Phish. The guitarist of Phish, Trey Anastasio is from Vermont. Phish has a pretty crazy gift shop with rad things like this t!
