So let’s put our brains together and think of some cute Austin/Texas things to put in an Out of Town bag!
The only thing I can think of so far is a bottle of Sweet Leaf Tea (it’s brewed in Austin I think), and something with longhorns on it! What else?

Something that’s usually not big, but big in Texas tradition.
TX chili mix. My mom brought me home some and it was absolutely delicious!

So far for my bags I have some really cute Texas shot glasses (the one for my Maid/Matron of Honor even has rhinestones on it), Texas Speak ( a book on how to talk Texan and how to understand us), bottled water with our wedding labels on them, Texas mints and various kinds of bbq sauces, hot sauces and marinades made in Texas. So far that’s all I have. I’m probably going to do little bags of Texas size jelly beans closer to my date.

I did a Texas Out of Town Bag!
I did a research and related all my items to Texas & had a little write up about each.
I had pecans (the state nut of Texas,)
Texas Beef Jerky
2 bags of Fritos (Since Fritos were invented in TX & Frito Lay is in Dallas)
Gum (and did a little write that the mexican general being defeated in Texas & sent to NY where he introduced the concept of gum to the NY inventor)
And water (which I nicknamed Texas Oil)
