This year when the holiday rush hits, bypass the big box and shop local for some unique gifts created and made in LA. Scope out our LA holiday gift guide to check everyone off your list, from kids to grandparents to teachers. We’ve even got a few things you’ll want to add to your own wish list…

LA Made Subscription Boxes

A subscription box is a gift that keeps on giving long after the flurry of wrapping paper and stockings has long settled. Whether you have a budding chef, bookworm, or junior scientist on your hands, there are several amazing subscription boxes available that are made right here in LA. A Raddish Kids subscription will deliver you monthly kits loaded with kid-friendly recipes, kitchen tools, and cooking challenges all geared towards not only getting your kids to cook healthy, but to eat healthy too. The Top Secret Science Club will deliver a monthly box with science activities centered around a fun, fictional adventure story. Book lovers will anxiously await the monthly delivery from Bear and Bud Book Club that features a curated selection of books that come packed with activities based around the stories.

Where To Buy: All three subscription boxes are available for order online either individually or for a full year.
