We typically reserve detoxing for postholiday guilt, but hit The Detox Market tout de suite for last-minute shopping.
The L.A. pop-up-turned-permanent spot now open on Valencia is gifting paradise. Discover rigorously tested organic and nontoxic items from a multitude of categories. The only rules? Each one must be best in show and beautiful.
Honoré des Prés Perfumes, $84-$145
Mum can appreciate the natural line of scents like Nu Green (so fresh) and Love Coconut (wearable pina colada) in cheeky packaging (Mason jar or NYC-themed coffee mug).
Kusmi Tea Collections, $11-$95
Give your [insert negative holiday symptom here] friend some wellness in the form of beautifully packaged, fragrant tea gift sets in healing flavors (Detox, Sweet Love, Be Cool, Boost).
The Spice Lab’s Finishing Sea Salts, $49
Present your guy with a savory gift: a handsome collection of gourmet salts in manly flavors like Cyprus wild mushroom, Black Lava, and smoked oak (available in-store only).
Spot It, $13
Equally appropriate for a niece, nephew, or immature brother-in-law, the surprisingly challenging kids’ card game by local company Blue Orange is a fun stocking stuffer (or drinking game, but you didn’t hear it from us).
Chocolate Mexicano Classic Collection, $27
Dad’s got a sweet tooth, too. Spice things up with a six-pack (including salted almond, cinnamon, and guajillo chili) of Taza Chocolate’s Mexican-style goodness made from organic cacao.
The Detox Market, 969 Valencia Street, between Liberty and 21st Streets (415-826-1600 or thedetoxmarket.com).
