(SBG San Antonio)

SAN ANTONIO -- The holidays can be stressful when you're trying to find the perfect gift for everyone in your family all while jumping from holiday party to holiday party (*eye roll*. first world problems).

So it's easy to lose the magic of the holidays when your mind is on so many other things. We wanted to learn how you can easily bring that magic back, so we stopped by San Antonio's last remaining magic shop. Bringing cool tricks to a holiday party can easily bring a smile to everyone's face and make you forget about the fact that you forgot to buy Aunt Sally a Christmas present.

JCR Magic owner Julio Ramirez was eager to show us some of his favorite classic tricks.

We visited Julio's shop in Leon Valley last year for the shop's big 20th anniversary. He says his shop is the only one of its kind in San Antonio and one of the last few remaining in the country. He had no previous background with magic prior to owning his shop. He was working at a restaurant when he walked into a man's shop and was blown away by what he experienced. So, he and his 12-year-old son at the time opened up JCR Magic and have been in business ever since.

So if his shop is one of the few left in the country, how has he stayed in business? Julio says customer service. It's something you can't get online, which he says is the reason so many shops have dropped off.

If you'd like to bring some magic to the holidays, you can check out JCR Magic. Julio says all purchases come with instructions, especially if you stop by the shop in person. Julio says he'd be happy to help you with getting some tricks up your sleeve!
