That's a Wrap
Local finds make holiday shopping easy
You’ve braved the Union Square crowds and popped into every shop on Fillmore Street, but you’re still stumped for a few very special people (and animals) on your list. Before you cave and just order everything on Amazon, consider these carefully selected gifts from some of our favorite Bay Area companies.
For your chic friend who?s perpetually chilly There?s always one in the bunch. Keep her toasty yet elegant in Cuyana?s Elizabeth infinity scarf ($65). Made from 100 percent Peruvian baby alpaca wool (translation: it?s insanely soft), this neck warmer comes in neutral colors that will match everything in her closet.
For your monogram-obsessed mother-in-law She will flip out (and not the way she did when you told her you weren?t taking her son?s surname) when she sees her initial as imagined by Flora Grubb Gardens. Have the wooden letter ($79), carved from reclaimed fence boards, filled with her favorite succulents.
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 your beau, who’s a sucker for booze and sweets Feed his addictions with a Sugar Knife Artisan Sweets “Puff Daddy” gift box ($60), which contains six different types of liquor-infused marshmallows. Flavors include the Black Irish (made with Guinness and chocolate-covered pretzels) and Cookies & C.R.E.A.M. (made with Bailey’s Irish Cream and chocolate cookies).
