TRES CHIC

A one stop shop for travelers, couples in love, passerbys, and last-minute shoppers.

In need of a last-minute Mother’s Day gift? Look no further than Très, a Parisian-inspired update on the classic gift shop, with a focus on everyday gifting; whether it’s for a friend, a special occasion, or a pick me up for yourself.

A decidedly more upscale version of a gift shop or corner store, Très sells a rotating selection of small goods that fit within everyone’s budget including Palo Santo smudge sticks for purifying one’s home, notebooks for recording thoughts on the go, and a range of playful cosmetics. They also highlight wares from French designers and local artists including cards and t-shirts by Ruben Burgess Jr. of sartorialnolift and pendants by Austin-based jeweler Vada Jewelry.

Très describes itself as a store that believes in “operating within the ideal of conscientious living, giving gifts often to yourself and others, championing vintage wares, and collecting mementos for your home whether you live near or far.”

Speaking of gifts, you have gotten one for Mother’s Day right? If not, Très has you procrastinators and last-minute shoppers covered. With their thoughtful curation of gifts, you’re sure to find something to make your Mom or mother figure in your life smile. Pick up a fresh bouquet and maybe some Mariebelle chocolates while you’re at it. You’ll be sure to make her day très chic.  — Emily Rueggeberg
