Your diet? Strictly locavore. Your vacation spot? Malibu. Your favorite tune? Randy Newman’s “I Love L.A.” For gifters who think locally, we’ve devised this lady-centric holiday wish list that keeps it close to home.
Oh, and roger that, Randy.
Eatz teaches would-be chefs to master cuisines from around the globe. If your buddy prefers a liquid diet, she can mix and muddle her way through an Elemental Mixology course. For the DIYer, there’s Unincorporated Education, with classes that range from sewing to build-your-own terrarium.
Design Within Reach
A Mt. Washington Pottery stone-wear bell strikes a sweet note with crafty types, and Chay’s geometric neon bookends (available in-store) are always a bright idea. Stumped on what to get astrology-obsessed buds? Send them over the moon with Jeremy Rendina’s lunar phase calendar.
An artsy John Wesley surfboard looks just as rad hanging in a beach bungalow as it does catching waves; a surf-inspired Hess skateboard from Mollusk works for pals who prefer cruising on dry land.
A Moveable Feast
An Apolis + Farmshop Gift Bundle samples the greatest artisanal hits (Sqirl seasonal preserves, Lamill coffee, Olive Ranch California olive oil). Sign, seal, and deliver Valerie Confections’s Petite Prix Fixe six-month subscription to unrepentant sugar fiends. Proper lasses will take a shine to Broome Street General’s Bellocq tea blends and handsome, double-walled Bredemeijer pot.
Go Out with a Bang
All eyes at the holiday party will be on a sequin frock by Clover Canyon (“This old thing?!”). For festive attire that’s both chic and comfy, a L’Agence kimono dress leaves enough room for another round of hors d’oeuvres.
