LAist's 2020 Gift Guide: The 60 Best Places To Shop Local This Holiday Season

Is there even a way to say that 2020 has put us all through the wringer without sounding like a cliché at this point? Probably not. But boy, has it.
From booksellers to restaurants to boutiques, no business in L.A. has made it through this year unscathed. That's why we designed this holiday shop-small guide, to spotlight our favorite local businesses, makers and products. These shops reflect everything that makes this city great, places that have, despite the Amazon explosion, kept L.A. from turning into a wasteland of big box stores and Walmart parking lots. These are items that you might not find anywhere else from vendors who — after this tumultuous year — could certainly use some love.
