The Hollywood Home 2020 Holiday Gift Guide

With the holidays looking very different this year than in year’s past, and with businesses from booksellers to restaurants in Los Angeles struggling to survive, we designed this holiday shop-small gift guide to help support some of our favorite local Southern California outposts. Many items on this list below can be both ordered for delivery or picked up at the brick and mortar locations if you, like me, are a little late on the holiday shopping this year. These shops reflect everything that makes this city great and are items that you might not find anywhere else from vendors who — after this tumultuous and challenging year — could use a little of your love.
