Christmas Shop in San Antonio for Fantastically Festive Gifts

There's never a shortage in San Antonio, Texas when it comes to either tacos or places to shop. The city's rich and diverse culture is represented in a number of shops and shopping districts in the city. If you're staying downtown, don't just head to River City Mall. Instead, from the river, go to La Villita, where you can find a "village" full of adorable shops featuring imported and handmade goods. 

For a truly one-of-a-kind gift, visit Caliente Hot Glass's gallery. These talented local hot glass artists are always making something extraordinary, and will also have some holiday-themed gifts, such as original glass ornaments - the ideal gift for that picky friend. You might want to check out their Facebook page because they often host live glass demos and also offer private classes, for those who want to get more up-close-and-personal. 

If you're looking for a one-stop-shop, The Shops at La Cantera are hard to beat. You'll find all of the most popular stores here, as well as great restaurants and bars for when you need a respite after an exhausting day of exercising your wallet!
