We love supporting local businesses — and sharing what to buy from them. All products or services are selected independently by our L.A.-obsessed editorial team, and we may earn a commission when you purchase through our links.
It's safe to say that 2020 has shaped our fashion choices significantly. Nights of wearing sky-high heels and a full face of makeup have turned into full days of loungewear and face masks. And with many of our favorite fashion events and red carpet galas going virtual (or getting canceled altogether), we are all in a need of mood-boosting style awakening. We're positive that the trend-setter in your life is looking to elevate their closet during this time. Why not give them the gift of both style and comfort for the holidays?
To help you find the perfect gift for your stylish friend and family member, we've compiled a list of our favorite giftable items from L.A.-based designers and brands. From sustainable accessories to cozy collections, there's something for all of your clothes-minded loved ones.
