Wherever we go in Texas, we always make time for the museum gift shops. Our museum shops reliably have some of the most fun, unique and affordable gifts (for yourself and others) to be found. We’ve rounded up some of the best of them this year. For more shopping delight, be sure to check our events listings, as many galleries host special holiday shows this time of year (read: a great way to find small, affordable, gift-appropriate art). Happy holidays!
