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.

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.

Here are six great shops to check out at Sunset Plaza.
