From Malls to Boutiques, Christmas Shopping in San Antonio's Never Been Better

The holidays are here again! If you're so lucky as to find yourself in San Antonio, Texas during the holiday season, make sure to take advantage of all of the amazing shops at your disposal. 

The Pearl Brewery isn't just the culinary epicenter, it's home to an array of upscale shops where you can find something special for your friends or family. Ten Thousand Villages, for examples, sells all sorts of treasures that are handcrafted by artisans from around the world.

To find all of your favorite brands from Coach to Williams-Sonoma, visit Shops at La Cantera, which is perhaps the most upscale shopping center in town. This lovely venue makes your shopping excursions even more fun, with access to great restaurants as well. 

For original, handmade gifts made by local artists, check out The Brick at Blue Star on the weekends. Blue Star also happens to be a fun place to spend the day, with access to the river, restaurants, and so much more!
