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…

Cool Threads

Clothes usually aren’t at the top of any kid’s wish list, but even non-fashion forward tykes will be delighted when they open a box filled with whimsical t-shirts and leggings emblazoned with yaks and cows from LA's Izzy and Ferd line of kid clothes. Dozens of LA-made clothing companies, like orange heat, Ultra Violet, and Sultan Sky Tees, offer equally fantastic kids wear that your fashion lovers will actually be excited to see under the tree.

Where To Buy: Many local boutiques, like J & Grey and Leanna Lin's Wonderland, feature cool kid threads made in LA. Or check out our guide to LA Made Kid’s Clothes for more ideas.
