Small Businesses Based in Los Angeles to Shop this Holiday Season

Now is the time more than ever when our small businesses need us. With the holidays fast approaching, I want to shine a spotlight on some of the small businesses I love. Being a small business owner myself, I know how difficult this year has been, and how holiday sales can make or break your brand. If you are looking to support small businesses as well as in the market for quality products that make memorable and unique gifts, look no further than some of these pieces that will do double smile duty (for the businesses and for the recipients!)

Caviar & Cashmere

I would be remiss if I did not start off with my own brand, Caviar & Cashmere. Caviar & Cashmere Skincare makes the perfect gift for yourself or someone you love. The gift of self-care is more important now than ever, and with products that allow for a straightforward, simplified routine, this brand will resonate with even skincare beginners. All products are vegan, cruelty-free, and non-toxic, made here Los Angeles with much love and care for all skin types. From now through 12/25, you will receive 20% off the site with free shipping and complimentary gift wrap!


I was introduced to Keikico a couple months ago during Stay-at-Home orders, which was the perfect time to get acquainted with the brand and it’s products. Keikico makes the coziest, softest, most comfortable luxury blankets and robes you’ve ever felt. You can imagine how happy I was to receive a cozy throw and floor-length robe while I was spending so much time at home. Keikico is a woman owned and run business and everything is made in-house. They pride themselves in keeping jobs in the US and providing their employees with sustainable pay and a warm work environment. Their products make great gifts for anyone who enjoys the comforts of being home.


VANNA is a beautiful new female-founded watch brand based in Los Angeles. VANNA watches are bold and minimal, and very well priced.  The designs strike a balance between timepieces and jewelry, adding a sophisticated touch of accessory to any outfit.

Sydney Evan

Sydney Evan is a fine jewelry brand that celebrates the uniqueness of our lives, and is rooted in the timeless concepts of spirituality, sentiment and personal expression. Each piece is unique and beautiful, making the perfect gift that will last a lifetime.

California-based eyewear designer Shane Baum has the intention of making products that will endure for generations to achieve the utmost in sustainability. Leisure Society frames are handcrafted in Japan out of pure 12k, 18k, and 24k gold-plated titanium along with the highest quality cotton-based acetate. 

Backgammon Baby

If you have been following me for a while, you’ll know how much I love playing backgammon. It has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I have never found a board I love as much as the snakeskin print one I have from Backgammon Baby. Their collection of unique boards has something for everyone.


Dorsey is a vintage revival jewelry brand founded by my friend, Meg. Her costume pieces are inspired by classic, timeless designs. They are chic and really well priced, making the perfect gift for a friend, sister, or mother!

Milk carries shoes, clothing, jewelry, and accessories from some of the best designers in the world. The curation is beautiful, and there is definitely something for everyone there! You can shop the boutique online here.


Fashionphile is a website where I could get lost on for hours. Fashionphile sells pre-owned designer handbags and other accessories such as jewelry, watches, sunglasses, shoes, etc for incredible prices. Think Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Gucci paradise.


Bloomnation is my go-to when ordering flowers. Bloomnation allows you to order fresh flowers online that are hand-delivered by the best local florists with a huge selection of unique arrangements. I love using Bloomnation, as I know that when I do, I am supporting small, local florists in Los Angeles.

Max Bone

Max Bone is a modern pet destination for the modern pet lover. Max Bone has the best selection of pet accessories which are beautifully designed and high quality, something you do not find often. My dog, George, loves all of his plush toys and knit sweaters!

Charlie Dolly

Charlie Dolly is an effortless fine jewelry collection by Rebecca Romijn. Each piece is modern and unique, showcasing the beauty of diamonds with floating settings. Practical wearability played a big factor into the brand’s core ethos, inspiring the brand to ditch clunky settings and come up with a more strategic approach — which uses laser piercing for a floating diamond effect and to rid the diamonds of a setting all together.

MP James

MP James is one of my new favorite home decor brands. Shop MP James supports products made in the USA, and small businesses through out the country. The products they sell are not sold on Amazon, as they encourage consumers to shop small! Their site is filled with amazing gifts for the home, from candles, to baskets, to pillows, and furniture, you could spend hours scouring their selection of unique pieces.

For Days

For Days is a sustainable clothing brand focused on high quality, recycled fabrics with great fits. Their t-shirts and sweats are staples in my closet. The most unique part about For Days, is their SWAP program. SWAP allows you to swap out any of their pieces, anytime, for any reason. Everything you send back gets recycled. Pretty cool, right?

Sydne Summer

Sydne Summer is a new brand created by my friend Sydne, based in Los Angeles. Sydne has created the most comfortable face mask and loungewear collection, which is perfect for staying safe and staying cozy this holiday season! Be sure to check out her mask chains, which I love to wear to spice up our new mandated accessories.

French Squirrel

If you’re looking for a gift for someone who is health-conscious or travels often, check out LA-based French Squirrel. French Squirrel makes delicious berets which are nutrient-dense, vegan and gluten-free protein bites coated in 100% pure, organic chocolate.

After many years in and out of the hospital, he decided to create cozy, comfortable garments for patients to wear while hospitalized. Hugga makes the perfect gift for a loved one, helping to show you care with personal care packages to nurture patients.
