It’s that time of year when you can find holiday spirit just about everywhere you turn. It’s filling our cups, adding a splash of cheer to our cocktail parties, and lighting the way to the Love, Tito’s retail store for the 2nd Annual Community Gift Wrapping Program.

The Love, Tito’s store gives Tito’s Handmade Vodka fans a chance to learn the story of Austin’s hometown spirit while browsing custom items – from wearables, to barware, to dog and golf gear. When you make a purchase, all net proceeds go to one of the nonprofits Tito’s has teamed up with.   

For the second year in a row, the Love, Tito’s store is hosting a Community Gift Wrapping Program benefiting this year’s participating nonprofits. Starting December 16th, four organizations will set up shop at Love, Tito’s and offer holiday gift wrapping for items purchased at the store for a suggested donation. Plus, each beneficiary will receive a $1,000 donation directly from Tito’s.

That means twice the give back, twice the love, and a perfectly wrapped present for the Tito’s fan in your life.  Plus, catch a set while you shop and enjoy live music by Midnight Snack on select gift wrapping sessions.

Meet this year’s nonprofits:

Austin German Shepherd Rescue

Gift Wrapping: Friday, December 16

11 am – 2 pm

Just how Tito and his beloved best friend DogJo inspired the Vodka for Dog People program, Austin German Shepherd Dog Rescue was inspired by the relationship between one abandoned German Shepherd puppy named Helmut and the founder of the organization. Since Helmut’s rescue, AGSDR has grown into a nonprofit dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing German Shepherds from across the state of Texas.

Austin Dog Rescue

Gift Wrapping with live music: Saturday, December 17

11 am – 2 pm

Since the early days, strays have found their way to the Tito’s distillery. The team gets them the vet care they need and finds them loving, forever homes – just like the folks at Austin Dog Rescue. Austin Dog Rescue’s mission is to end the cycle of homeless animals by saving dogs from Central Texas shelters that have no hope of a better life, encouraging community members to spay and neuter their pets, and providing education and resources to help pets live long and healthy lives.

Black Fret

Gift Wrapping: Thursday, December 22

11 am – 2 pm

Tito’s wouldn’t be Tito’s without live music and the incredible venues, festivals, and musicians that make Austin a global music hub. Black Fret’s mission is to better support the musicians making it all happen. Its goal is to create a network of connected communities, all supporting their local music economies. And in the process of creating this network, provide opportunities for Black Fret bands to travel between cities, playing bigger gigs and being paid for shows they would not have had the opportunity to otherwise.

Look out for the organization’s rebranding in later 2022 and learn more at

Gift Wrapping with live music: Friday, December 23

11 am – 2 pm
