Plano is home to more than 10,000 businesses, many of them local establishments run by our neighbors. As we prepare for the holiday season and pick out gifts to go under the tree and in our stockings, we’ve selected five stocking stuffers from local favorites that are too good to be re-gifted.
Haywire is a Plano staple of Texan sophistication with locally sourced beef and a variety of rare whiskeys. Now, they’re launching a collection of items that bring that sophistication home, with rocks glasses, whiskey-stone gift sets and camping-core classics like throw blankets, campfire mugs and custom playing cards. This whiskey-stone set keeps drinks cool without watering them down, and the trademark Haywire logo lets everyone know you’re living local.

Paper Affair is a haven of custom stationery, unique trinkets and hand-embroidered gifts made locally.

DragonFly Fragrances produces candles with dozens of scents to choose from. They bring luxury to the table with sticker-less candle vessels, so the containers are cute enough to keep long after the candle has burned. The Christmas collection includes nine candles and two diffusers in white, green and red.
