Are you a classic Christmas procrastinator? It's just a few days before the big holiday and you still have shopping to do, right? Instead of getting stuck in crowds, focus and direct your attention to gift cards. And while you're at it, if you're in Santa Cruz, support your local stores by picking up a gift card from one of my three favorite stores (the other is a beloved boutique in San Francisco).
Cameron Marks is a modern and beautiful boutique on the Westside of Santa Cruz that offers three stores full of delightful gifts. Beklina.com is an online destination with unique finds and creative ideas. Stripe is a beloved local destination where the girl in your life will find something she loves. And Legion is one of my favorite shopping destinations in the city.
Shop local this season!
