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.

Balani Custom Clothiers

Balani is a company that specializes in high end men’s custom suits and clothing. Perfect for the man in your life, they offer custom tailored business wear, formal wear, casual clothing, and accessories with a unique, personalized experience. Balani also sells a distinctive collection of neckties you simply won’t find anywhere else.

Bluemercury

A certain beauty retailer that will go unnamed doesn’t always offer that personalized touch. Bluemercury on the other hand offers the world’s most innovative beauty products in a truly unique shopping experience. Clients receive unparalleled technical product knowledge, expert advice and friendly service. Their teams would rather have clients leave the store with handfuls of samples, so that they can be sure to find products that work for them, rather than ever buy anything that is less than 100% right. Other amazing gifts include a Molton Brown luxury fragrances stocking stuffer for $50. Diptyque set of mini candles (baies, figuier, roses) for $100. A Nest Frangrances Birchwood Pine Liquidless diffuser for $60.

Blushington

Don’t forget yourself this holiday season. Whether you need a pick-me-up before a holiday party or would like to  get a girlfriend a gift certificate or a beauty product Blushington is an amazing place to drop in. From “Pure and Natural” to “Smoke and Mirrors”, heads will turn when you enter a room with any of their signature Blushington looks. From Eyes Only to Full Face Makeup Applications for everyday or special occasions, they’ve got you covered.

Drybar

Another great gift for a girlfriend on the go is a blowout from Drybar. Drybar only offers one service – the blowout. No cuts, no color. Just blowouts. So you can bet they’ve perfected it. The 3-Day Bender Digital Curling Iron makes an amazing gift. It’s the curling iron to end all curling irons. Yes, it’s pricey at $135, but you’ll never have to buy another one again. Drybar also has a fantastic Happy Hour shampoo and conditioner. Plus, there’s the Texas Tease travel kit for $29 which includes a collection of Drybar essentials to deliver the perfect DIY blowout, with an extra helping of volume. Big is better! And if you’d like to go all out get the Bigger, Better Blowout Box Buttercup Kit. It will set you back $199 but includes a Buttercup Blow-Dryer, Half Pint Small Round Brush, High Tops Self Grip Rollers, Mini Southern Belle Volumizing Mousse, Mini Triple Sec 3-in-1, and Mini Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray.

Michael Nusskern

The clothing at Michael Nusskern Originals and Collections will flatter any figure. And right now they are having a 40% off sale on Isabel Marant items. I’m in love with the Venicia Pointed Toe Flats. Michael Nusskern also has an excellent collection of jewelry, handbags, and belts.

Sunset Kids

Whether you’re shopping for your children or your friend’s children, Sunset Kids has you covered with their selectively and tastefully curated collection of children’s clothing. By now a Los Angeles institution, it’s a rocking boutique for the children of the stars. Tell the store clerks exactly what you’re after (casual, formal, beachwear, etc.) and they will lay out four or five options for you to choose from. From the swanky and sophisticated looks (above) to laid back music loving looks below, you’ll find something at Sunset Kids for children of any age.

Happy holiday shopping!
