There are only a few times a year that you can find all of your holiday shopping needs in one place, and one of those times is coming right up. While November and December are for relaxing and indulging in things like pumpkin spice, you need to get through your Christmas list asap. We have just the thing to help you with this massive holiday market that has tons of Christmas gifts.
You're right, Amazon is only one click away. But your friends and family mean so much more and should get something personal to them. Every year, the Houston Ballet puts on the annual Nutcracker Market that brings over 260 vendors to one place. This year, they have 23 new vendors and all of the gems you find here are going to be new and unique.
The market has been packed every year with people from all over the state (and beyond). But don't fret because there's literally enough space. Just look for yourself at how big this place is! Of course, they need the space. Vendors bring literally everything here, from home decor, men's outdoor clothing, and holiday decor, to candles and ugly sweaters. And if you happen to make it out for their preview party night, they'll have a Kendra Scott pull you can purchase for $100. What a bargain seeing as that's almost the price of one necklace at the store, and with this you get jewelry, an ornament, custom calligraphy and KS discounts.
The Nutcracker Market takes place from November 14 to November 17, and you can either get a general admission ticket for $20 or an early bird for $50. The early bird is just that, for those who can wake up at the crack of dawn. You can snag tickets at any of the local Randall's grocery stores.
If you aren't shopping, go ahead and bring your best friends and family. Drink, watch the fashion show and just enjoy all the holiday spirit. There's plenty to do besides shopping.
Parking may be tough, but NRG Park accommodates Houston Texans football games and Beyonce concerts, so you should be fine. Tis the season for a whole new level of shopping.
