Chances are you’re serving with or at least know someone who won’t shut up about Texas: being from Texas, missing Texas, looking forward to being back in Texas — you get the point. If you’re wondering how you’ll know if they’re from Texas: They’ll tell you.

Frankly, I support them wholeheartedly. While it’s not without its flaws, the state of Texas has a certain allure to it: the food, the wide-open spaces, the diversity of the people, and the ability to experience all four seasons in the span of a day. Did I mention the food? And with no shortage of military installations throughout the Lone Star State, you’ll likely come across a Texan service member more than once. 

Sure, it can be annoying when they continuously insist that Texas is better than whatever subpar state you hail from, but getting them one of these Texas-themed gifts will give you an opportunity to say you get it — right before asking them to please stop talking about it.

Here are 10 great gift ideas for the Texan in your life that are sure to put a Texas-sized smile on their face:
