When it comes to gift giving in Los Angeles eclecticism is key. It's all about being creative in order to find that perfect gift, and the perfect gift does not necessarily mean dropping bills. The left coast has such a unique style so it's important to give items that enhance the recipient's personal style. Here are my picks for my L.A. friends that I am secretly wishing someone would get for me (ahem ahem). Oh, and just for kicks they are all under $50!
1.) Everyday Astrology by Gary Goldschneider ($24.95). This book gets down to the nitty gritty, such as how to stay in touch with a Leo or nail a sales pitch to an Aries.
2.) This scarf from a.ok ($48) has the prettiest different shades of purple. It measures to 25” wide and 70” long so it's big enough to make a statement and keep you warm at the same time!
3.) These Celestial Coasters ($32) come in all different colors will look great in any California space.
4.) Denny & Ozzy's Hooded Wrap ($48) is ideal for the L.A. winter, especially over a sweater.
5.) Gift the gift of style inspiration with The Sartorialist's new book ($14.62). Scott Schuman's blog always fascinates and sparks fashion ideas and his book is excellent for those working with items they already own.
6.) Too Faced Smoky Eye Palette ($34) comes with everything you need to create the perfect smoky eye. The kit comes with three step-by-step instruction cards that teach you how to get your smoke on.
7.) This Casablanca Embroidered Pouch ($14) is the perfect size for a cell phone, cash and keys. It screams west coast chic and is a total steal at $14!
