I looooooove when I find a neighborhood store that has unique gifts for just about anyone on my list!! Goods LA is just that place! Picky girlfriend that has everything?? How about a beautiful succulent arrangement from Roots & Stems? Here is a picture of the one I bought for myself today.
Beautiful isn't it? I'm also crazy about the felt bowls surrounding it - they are filled with felt rocks made by an artist named Birte Reimer - I will definitely be back for these! Need a gift for a new bambino? I did. Believe me, this was not an easy decision....there are adorable felt hats and baby booties from Kyrgyzstan, hand-knit, organic cotton blankets from Bolivia.... then... I saw them!! These dreamy, little, sleeping felt animals - HAD TO HAVE THEM!
I'm almost done shopping when I spot the cutest little Bento lunch box! This is a perfect gift for my kids for the first day of school this Monday. I'm a sucker for any kind of Bento lunch box - my kids have 4 of them a piece! This one was irresistible:
The last item on my list is soap. Not just any soap.... my favorite soap!! Compagnie De Provence's entire collection of Savon De Marseille! Seeing as how I'm almost out, I pick some up!
Now the only thing I need is a bag to carry it all in and what do ya know? There are some delicious plastic totes made from a Collective in Bolivia begging me to carry my goods home in!!
All I have to do now is hope my husband doesn't read this post! It was an expensive one!! Check out Goods LA if you have the chance, you won't be disappointed!
