Many other small household items made in the signature long-lasting silvery alloy remain in the two-digit range. Luz also carries candles, crystal and etched glass products.

With more than 100 selections of loose-leaf teas—not to mention herbals and blooming teas—this shop and restaurant can build a gift package for any tea fan. ATeaCo, as it's affectionately known, offers a sniffing bar where you can smell your favorites. In addition to the wide variety of grown-up tea accessories, you can find children's tea sets here that are safe to drink from and dishwasher-friendly.
Though Keller's is more traditionally known for its awesome butchers, it's not a bad place to find New Mexico-centric gifts, either. Send out-of-towners some Cibolo Junction green chile stew or posole mix. There's also Santa Fe Season's red chile-cranberry sauce or green chile jam. Throw in a jar of whole chestnuts, attractive gourmet pastas and ready-made gift baskets of Keller's meat marinades. Beyond food, this grocer carries dreidels, holiday cards, plush stuffed animals, books on herbal remedies, aprons, candles, cocktail sets and a “Turkey 101” cooking kit.

2801R Eubank NE (in the Eastdale Shopping Center) • 292-0020 Hours: Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m.
It's hard to take in the hundreds upon hundreds of collectible figurines, delicately painted and neatly arranged in almost every square inch of Lorrie's. Christmas dominates in the jungle of ornaments, Christmas villages, religious figurines and manger scenes. But a cast of characters from Disney, Warner Bros. and The Wizard of Oz make appearances on the shelves. Prices vary, and this is a great place to shop for people who like to display pretty things in their home.
