ATX Holiday Gift Guide from Chinook Seedery!

With the countdown on to the gift-giving season, is your holiday gift list prepared? (Don’t worry, ours isn’t done either 🤭)  However, we do have a quick list of some of the best gifts and stocking stuffer ideas this side of the Mississippi, all from Austin-based brands! Could it get any better?

Yellowbird Sauce

For the sriracha-connoisseur in your life, Yellowbird is the end-all-be-all. These spicy condiments are never watered down, and contain a flavor packed, rich blend of the best farm-fresh fruits and veggies, with no preservatives or artificial ingredients. Their 9 ounce variety pack of condiments contain a fresh twist on some classic favorites including Blue Agave Sriracha and a Ghost Pepper condiment for the true dare devil who loves anything with a fiery kick. Find it here, if you dare! 🌶️                                                                        

The Bearded Bastard

Keep that beard super soft for all of those upcoming smooches under the mistletoe or for when you are outdoors hunting for the perfect Christmas tree a la Clark Griswald. We dig the Bearded Bastards scents, his proprietary blend of oils and how it keeps beards, mustaches and whiskers of all shapes soft and smelling good. 


Yeti was founded in 2006 by an outdoorsman with one mission, “build the cooler we'd use every day if it existed”. Yeti has been successful in their mission, becoming a household name brand with their collection of heavy duty coolers and multitude of drink tumblers that can keep anything under the sun hot or cold. For a big-ticket gift that is sure to keep everything ice cold, pick up a cooler for the road, or for the perfect stocking stuffer that keeps coffee hot and cocktails chilled, you can’t go wrong with an insulated and sleek-yet-durable tumbler!

Barbecue Wife

Handcrafted in Austin, the Barbecue Wife creates premium Bloody Mary Mix inspired by the flavors of rich and smoky Texas BBQ , complete with smoked sea salt, smoked black pepper, and all natural ingredients! What else could you want on an early Christmas morning in your stocking? For your friends and family that aren’t super big into drinking their vegetables, Barbecue Wife also has a Texas Smoked Honey Margarita Mix that should always be kept on hand for cocktail emergencies.

Viva Day Spa

For a quick last-minute gifts that will 100% put a smile on the recipients face, you can’t go wrong with a gift certificate to Viva Day Spa in Austin! Between massages, facials, and manicures, there’s a little something for  everyone, and couldn’t everyone use a little pampering and R&R during the holiday season?  

Any of these amazing SKU Alums!

We loved going through the program at SKU and are thankful for the opportunity it gave our team at Chinook. Now, we know our seeds make great stocking stuffers (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) but also would love if you would check out and support these other great brands who have gone through SKU. Either as gifts, stocking stuffers or even as great snack ideas to serve and your family and friends this holiday season. Here are some of our favorites!
