BASTROP HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS - Dec 2023 Digital Issue 3

By Erika O'Neal | Bastrop Guide

This holiday season imagine yourself in a cheerful atmosphere, sipping on a warm drink and discovering the hidden treasures that await you throughout Bastrop County and your surrounding communities. 

This guide is just a small glimpse of the many different business that surround us. As you explore the shops and boutiques, you’ll find an array of unique and thoughtful 

gifts, from handcrafted jewelry, local artwork, vintage and antiques, there’s something to suit every taste and style. 

When you support your local businesses you are also helping your communities thrive. The local businesses in Bastrop County and the surrounding communities are grateful for your support, especially during this holiday season.

The beginning of this video is just a short glimpse of the festive Dickens on Main Street. The event took place in historic downtown Smithville, Texas. The charming small town transformed into a scene straight out of a Charles Dickens novel. Vendors dressed in costume, live music, and the historic buildings brought it all together. 

Happy Holidays, and happy shopping!
