We have a quick list of some of the best Valentine's Day gifts this side of the Mississippi, all from Austin-based brands! Could it get any better?

For those who like Spice: 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! 🌶️  (may we also suggest Hatch Chile Sunflower Seeds from yours truly?)                                                                       

For Your Bearded One: The Bearded Bastard

Keep that beard super soft for all of those upcoming smooches. 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. 

For the Hunter, Fisher or Camper: Yeti

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 something a bit smaller that keeps coffee hot and cocktails chilled, you can’t go wrong with an insulated and sleek-yet-durable tumbler!

For the Bloody Mary/Margarita Lover: 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! 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.

For Anyone Who Needs A Massage: 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 on Valentine's Day?
