Unique Boutiques For Your Holiday Shopping in San Diego

The holidays are upon us once again, and the thought of gift buying can sometimes add additional stress to an already busy season. San Diego is fortunate to have an abundance of shopping options for the hard-to-buy-for loved one. My first rule of thumb when selecting a gift for someone is to know something unique about them, e.g. hobbies, passions, and favorites. Once you know this you can tailor their gift perfectly for them.

With Love Gift & Paperie - Unique Boutiques

Find a unique holiday gift at With Love Gift & Paperie

One of my favorite places to find unique gifts is With Love Gift & Paperie. With an ever changing inventory of cards, jewelry, French journals, and one-of-a-kind home accessories, this is a grand slam. I can always find something for a home or maybe the latest hip interior design coffee table book, or some luxurious smelling soap with an antique soap holder. The choices are never ending here in this treasure chest of fabulousness.

The Headquarters

Simply Local - The Headquarters

Simply Local is just one of the amazing boutiques located at The Headquarters

The Headquarters shopping area offers two of my preferred stores. Simply Local‘s impressive location features over 50 local merchants and artists combined with treasures from around the world. Picture an indoor upscale farmers market. I love the jewelry, purses, gourmet kitchen and food items. Their newest location just opened this month in North Park, 3013 University Ave. Seaside Paper/Home offers luxury candles, personalized stationery, hand selected home accessories and some exclusive proprietary lines. If you happen to be in Coronado, be sure to check out their second location at 1162 Orange Ave.

Vignettes Boutique


Discover the perfect gift from ol’ Parie at Vignettes

I love shopping at antique stores for people. Vignettes, my go-to antique store, is located in Ocean Beach. I can always find the perfect piece of antique jewelry or accessory. Maybe an exclusive home or garden accessory is on your list? No matter what, be sure to check out the Chanel corner! This a one-of-a-kind antique store that makes you think of the splendor of Old Paris…Vive La France!

Love & Aesthetics

Love & Aesthetics Boutique

The area of Little Italy features Love & Aesthetics. The owner of this lifestyle boutique carries items that he believes in and lives by. Representing local artists and independent companies, this boutique carries everything from jewelry to local re-purposed woodwork furniture to stunning vases and art. The second location in the neighborhood of North Park has a more masculine vibe.

About Sandra

Being a local Fashion Stylist I love sharing and connecting people with the latest "boutiques'" and "treasures" that San Diego has to offer. Whether with fashion, dining, or art I enjoy letting others in on new places that define San Diego. I adore dining out with my husband while enjoying a nice glass of wine at the Red Velvet Wine Bar or the roasted jalapeƱo blackberry margarita from Barrio Star. We love just chilling with our daughter and hanging out with close friends playing board games. Family, fashion, business, music, good food, wine, art, dark chocolate, dogs and laughter pretty much defines me! What would you do on your ideal San Diego day? Wake up, read the newspaper and WWD while loading up on coffee. Head down to Liberty Station to take a class at The Bar Method. Hit some tennis balls with my hubby and daughter. Have a relaxing lunch at either C Level, Bencotto, Cucina Urbana, Barrio Star or Tower 23 with family. End with a ride on Sunset Cliffs, stop to watch the sunset, then home sweet home! What is your favorite San Diego Outdoor activity? Riding bikes, tennis, walking along the bay, and of course shopping, it is a sport, right? Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and wine? Any homemade pasta and vino! Latest music purchases on my ipod are... Muse, Depeche Mode, 'Til Tuesday, One Republic, Pink, Christina Perri, The Smiths, Rihanna, Snow Patrol, Astrud Gilberto Visit Sandra at www.mymariposastyle.com
