What two or three San Antonio-made items would you love to receive as holiday gifts this year and why?

A bottle of Devil’s River Rye Whiskey. Why? Because they make a fine whiskey right here in San Anto! Devil’s River Whiskey, 401 E. Houston St., (833) 379-1840, devilsriverwhiskey.com.

Also, some handmade tamales by Sweet Chela’s Custom Cakes. Why? Because they’re some of the best in town! Sweet Chela’s Custom Cakes, 2118 Cincinnati Ave., (210) 897-0879, facebook.com/SweetChelas.

What’s the best locally produced  gift you’ve ever received?

A T-shirt designed by local artist Robert Tatum of Choice Goods Gallery. It’s titled “Grey Pride” and has a rainbow of different shades of grey instead of the spectrum colors. Why? When you see my hair, you’ll know why! Choice Goods Gallery, 1903 S. Flores St., Suite 104, (210) 902-0233, choicegoodsbrand.com.

Why is it important for people to shop local during the holidays?

It’s important to shop locally because, of course, it helps our economy and keeps our beautiful city thriving. But it also keeps our culture vibrant and alive! It’s especially nice to shop for local gifts for out-of-town friends and family.
