We've sought out the comfy, the cool and the surprising for the lucky people on our list. Our finds are so fun and useful, we anticipate everyone loving them well into the new year.

For the friend running a vegan juice company out of her garage This honeycomb-shaped vegan leather card case ($24) has two pockets--one for cards, one for money. It comes in a chic kaleidoscope of colors, and we like how easy it is to find the distinctive shape in the rabbit hole that is our purse.

For your platonic crush with a sweet tooth Little Flower Candy Company’s Glendale-made caramel candies (from $8 for .25 lb) are individually wrapped, can’t-eat-just-one delights in flavors like salted, vanilla and lemon.


What do you get the person who has everything? A better night's sleep, of course. Give the gift of comfort this holiday season with Tempur-Pedic®--whether it’s a new set of plush pillows or a king-sized mattress. And remember: Well-rested relatives are happy relatives.

For the fashion friend with an Instagram habit  Nail art + social media = hours of fun. NCLA nail wraps ($16) are the locally made answer to complex nail art, and even better, they last longer than traditional manicures. Just stick on a tartan, psychedelic swirl or ombré appliqué and go.

For the locavore foodie who's an aspiring mixolgist  A bottle of wine just ain’t going to cut it anymore. Give 'em artisanal spirits from Greenbar Craft Distillery, which makes vodka, gin, tequila and more in small batches at the company’s downtown Los Angeles headquarters.
