A Well-Crafted Christmas

Finding the perfect stocking stuffer for someone you love is one of the most challenging duties of the Christmas season. For the most part, stockings are small. That means the items that fit easily into them are expensive (jewelry) or unwanted (coal, rocks, fruit). Finding that affordable, appreciated sweet spot is one reason we’d all rather leave the stocking task to Santa.

Fear not. Amarillo’s farmer’s and community markets may be closed for the winter, but the city remains in the middle of a locally sourced revolution. From Panhandle-roasted coffee beans to more artistic endeavors, here are a few of our favorite stocking stuffers with a local bent, guaranteed to be appreciated.


Evocation coffee beans $18 each, Evocation Micro-Coffee Roastery
Circle 21 Candle Company Mountain Pass hand-poured all-natural soy candle $25, Two Loons Warehouse
Charlie Girl Designs leather cuff $75; gold coil ring $65, The Nat
Kent Harris Pottery mug $25, Blue Sage Pottery & Art Gallery
