Six Stylish Shops at Sunset Plaza Perfect for Holiday Gifts

The holiday season has arrived and with it the annual mad dash to a crowded department store, any department store, to try to find a bevy of last minute gifts. We do this, I imagine, because we feel the department store will be a catchall one-stop stop for across-the-board gifts for all the different people in our lives. Last year as I stood in a long line at a busy big box department store that will go unnamed waiting to pay for a Fitbit or two, staring down at my gift list  at all the names I hadn’t crossed off and the boxes I hadn’t checked off while I got to thinking that holiday shopping had to be more fun than this. And then it dawned on me that just a few days before at Sunset Plaza on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood I had had a leisurely late lunch at the divine The Butcher, The Baker, and The Cappuccino Maker and afterward had strolled the Plaza’s many fine shops. It was a stress-free, casual, and, yes, fun experience and I knew I had to get back to the Plaza to complete my holiday shopping. This year, you should do the same. Here are six great shops to check out at Sunset Plaza.
