I absolutely love shopping for gifts. Tell me who you need to get a present for and I'll find the perfect one. To me, the perfect gift is one of the best ways to show you know and care about a person.
Sometimes the gift idea just comes to you and sometimes you have to think outside the box, but local vendors are my bread and butter during the holiday season. While I plan to frequent all my favorite local shops, this year I also turned to Instagram for gift ideas. I follow several Santa Barbara artisans and tastemakers and I value their craftsmanship and gift ideas. Below are items from the accounts I love the most, featuring their beautiful (and delicious!) products. Whether you're shopping for a foodie or a fashionista, these local brands are my first choice.
