Gay’s Hill Country Holidays Headquarters
To help you spread holiday joy without the stress, I’ve curated the ultimate guide filled with time-saving inspiration and gifts with a Texas twist. We also recreated a cherished family heirloom: a recipe book curated by my mother, Dottie Warren, an inspiring host.
Recipes Curated By My mother, Dottie Warren
In 1980, I received a homemade recipe book from my mother, Dottie Warren, with a hand-drawn cover and recipes typed on an old manual typewriter. Given to friends and family, she hand-crafted each one as a labor of love.
For inspiration during this busy holiday season, we’ve recreated this family heirloom, “Christmas Collection,” with Dottie’s recipes and dishes by lifelong friends of Liberty, Texas. From recipes for dove and duck fresh from a hunt, to old-fashioned fruit salads, biscuits, brittles and a Christmas tree-shaped cheese ball—editing this book was a delicious walk down memory lane.

Top 10 Items to Pamper Your Pet
It’s holiday time for our furry friends too, so we consulted with our ranch dogs, Henry, Rice and Lizzie, to create a top 10 list of treats, toys and gifts to spoil your beloved pets.
gifts that give back & save you time
I love to shop at thrift stores and estate sales. They’re filled with interesting and beautiful things, fund good causes and recycle treasures from days gone by. I’ve curated three themes of inspiration to help you create meaningful gifts that are easy, affordable and completely unique.
