The online pantry at Fredericksburg Farms abounds with all-natural preserves, chili mixes, and mustards and dozens of gluten-free options, all prepared with a firm commitment to Texan- and American-made products. The farm's fruit-filled preserves and jellies ($6.95 each) crown toast in classic and fiery flavors such as strawberry, peach, and jalapeño and double as tasty caulk when winterizing a gingerbread house. A drizzle of water transforms the Texas Campfire cornbread mix into thick, spicy batter ($5.95), and the preservative-free venison-chili mix ($4.95) will come in handy after hunting season. Home accents include an aromatic array of hand-poured soy-blend candles ($12–$16 each), which infuse dwellings with luscious fruit, herbal, and floral fragrances.

A fully equipped florist, Sprout also purveys fresh flowers by the stem or in mixed bouquets for weddings, birthdays, and conciliatory presents to angry colonies of bees. Though not included with this deal, Sprout supplies a variety of jewelry and artwork.

Prestige Carpet Cleaning and Floor Care rids floor surfaces of pesky filth, flushing out grout and restoring tiles to their just-placed look. Before tackling floors' trenches, specialists converse with clients during a complimentary consultation, in which they inspect surfaces for staining, damage, and repellency. Wielding a highly pressurized hot-water wand, masterful floor magicians then upend dirt in two rooms—or as much as 200 square feet (a $2.14 per sq. ft. value)—while nearby faucets watch in wonder and shame. Prestige's technicians command control over the high-pressure technology, ridding bathrooms of clingy mineral deposits and lingering self-doubt. Cleaning concludes with a professionally applied impregnating sealer, which leaves walkable jigsaw puzzles easier to render squeakily clean.
