Sir, we’re perilously close to Christmas Day.
T-minus a plate of cookies and counting.
And yet, if you’re like most Angelenos, you still have presents to buy.
So, hark the herald angels sing, we made you this: Your Last-Minute Holiday Shopping Guide.
Inside, we suggest eight gifts and — because it's wayyyy too late to get anything shipped — we reveal the eight actual stores where you can still buy them.
For the Lady
It’s getting chilly out. But, if she still wants to show off her legs, we recommend getting her the Elder Statesmen Guatemala Dress. It's a baby-soft heavyweight Italian cashmere that drapes nicely over leggings.

For the Youngn’s
Marbles - Rock me Archimedes
The Rock Me Archimedes, a new game by the eggheads at Marbles, is a fun teeter-totter game based on mathematical concepts. Totally more fun than it sounds.
Santa Monica Place, 395 Santa Monica Blvd
Of-the-moment watchmakers Shinola make classic timepieces that will (probably) never go out of style. We recommend the Runwell. Simple, elegant, and made in Detroit. You’ll find other gift ideas at their new store in Silver Lake.
3515 Sunset Blvd
Shaffer’s Miryam’s Twin
Italian blue leather and suede on the inside, Shaffer’s Miryam’s Twin handbag is the sort of go-to ladies like to have on hand. It stores everything from clothes to a laptop.
Available at Ron Robinson in Fred Segal

The Cocktail Lab
Hangovers abound during the holidays. So it helps to have some good bloody mary mix on hand. The Cocktail Lab has great gift baskets with all of those bloody needs taken care of.

For the Boss
For the Neighbors
Kill two birds with one stop at Stir Market: Grab a gift box full of local cheeses, crackers, and spices. Stay for a glass of carbonic sangiovese and a burger with horseradish cheddar.
