an L.A. gift story v2

Mar Vista barrio LA

The Mar Vista Pop-In, where we slowly pack our L.A.-made gifts & do handwritten notes

Yeah, yeah, we get it…

Everything is cheaper & more efficient when it’s automated & managed by robots.

When we slow down & we’re completely honest with ourselves, we like to ask a few simple questions:

“How do those cheaper “things” make us really feel?”

“Was the experience memorable or unique?”

“Do we know who made what we buy?”

bored in L.A.

Gifts-giving & getting should always feel authentic.

Bored just thinking about it?

Whatever your shopping pleasure – you should feel good before & after doing it.

Everything we use for our custom gifts are goods made by L.A. people – uniquely designed & slowly made by artists & artisans who have perfected their craft.

Whether we’re filling an LKLY handwoven basket or a gift box with L.A. made goods., we love to “hide” a few things inside.

We always thrive to find the best stories around L.A. – & can tell you a lil’ (or a lot!) about each of the people we work with… just ask!

L.A. Gift Story

An L.A. Gift Story

We loved putting together this custom gift basket filled with products by Clean Living, Noto Botanics & Honey Belle.

We adore all 3 companies for their commitment to quality ingredients you can trust, but we always have a special place forĀ Clean Living since they were one of the first companies we worked with.

Clean Living Gift Bundle

Clean Living Body Soap, Shampoo, Conditioner, & Lotion

We met Jim from Clean Living at the Culver City Farmers’ Market – he helped us learn so much about making allergy free products & we love that he doesn’t use any palm oil in his products.

NOTO Botanics

NOTO Botanics

NOTO Botanics‘ oils are multi-use & their scents are unisex. We love gifting their deep serum because EVERYONE loves it, & Gloria Noto’s natural beauty approach.

Honey Belle

Honey Belle of Brea, California

Honey Belle‘s organic line includes our favorite lip scrub – sweet, like brown sugar.

We choose these handcrafted & natural goods for someone who is super diligent about product ingredients.
