Help Wanted: Local Gift Ideas for Irish Friend

mistyp0523 | Dec 13, 201010:19 AM

I traveled to Dublin, Ireland for Thanksgiving and got robbed of my money and camera by a group of idiots...a wonderful gentlemen who witnessed the ordeal ended up helping me by calling the police and lending me some money. I'd like to send him a package with some local goodies to say 'thank you'. I definitely want the items to be quintessentially Texan.

So far, I have bought a 6-pack of Saint Arnold's Christmas Ale and Real Ale's Coffee Porter (yes, I realize you're not supposed to mail alcohol...I'll take my chances).

I think I'm also going to buy a jar of El Fenix Salsa. Out of all the jarred salsas I have tried, I find that one to be the best combination of flavor and spice.

I'm thinking some pecan pralines would be a good gift, but really don't know where to go to get an excellent version.

Any ideas on where to get some southern confections, or maybe some ideas on other "Texan" gifts I can buy? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
