Here at The Society Diaries we are always looking for the next big thing. We just found Batch, a new, cool service that curates and delivers boxes of locally-produced, artisanal goods right to your door. Every month the Batch Austin team will deliver four unique Austin-made goods, featuring a distinctive theme and information on the items’ provenance. We love that it’s perfect for host gifts, too.

“We’re using locally made goods to define a sense of place,” says Sam Davidson, Batch co-founder. “You’re defined by the food, the makers, the goods.” With Batch, Austinites can share a taste of Austin through the local products that define their hometown, as well as other select cities across the country. $29.99 per month, or $85 for quarterly subscription. Specialty gift boxes from $29. For more information visit
