an L.A. gift story v4
What’s the perfect gift for a new Angeleno?
We recently put some extra thought into this question, while putting together a “Welcome to L.A.” gift box.
Quick back story:
When Jen moved down to Los Angeles from Seattle, our dad gave her travel sized pepper sprays- yes, two total – one for her car & another for her purse.
Pretty sure this is an example of what NOT to give someone.
A gift card to Groundworks would have done the trick.
On that note-
here are some gift recs for your favorite new Angeleno.
City of Angels is a beautifully illustrated picture book that could only have been written by locals- good for families, kids & adults- written by long time Mar Vista residents.
Whether we’re just going to hang out with family or friends or grocery shopping, Angelenos love & support their local farmers’ markets. There’s a reason why we say, “my farmers market”, right?
Organic jams made from farmers’ market fruit? Yes, please!
Try on Lodge Bread or even make cocktails with them- just add a Green Bar Distillery liquor (try their Slow Hand Whiskey!).
Vintage inspired glassware (printed with organic ink) for days spent outside in the never-ending sunshine.
A few other suggestions…
Local coffee shop gift card.
Museum Memberships (some favorites include MOCA, Natural History Museum & the Autry).
A farmers’ market gift certificate for their neighborhood.
How would you welcome someone to Los Angeles?
