Maison en Provence

Tis the season to shop, shop, shop in San Diego! With the holidays right around the corner, San Diego is the perfect destination to find that tailored-made holiday gift for your loved ones back home and maybe something special for yourself. Even though there is a multitude of options with malls and shopping centers, one way to find that one-of-a-kind gift is to shop at some of San Diego’s unique specialty boutiques.

Bazaar Del Mundo Shops

Bazaar del Mundo

One of the most eclectic and colorful places I like to search for the perfect holiday gift is at Bazaar Del Mundo Shops. With the flare of Old Mexico and an array of specialty items from Latin America and around the world, this is an ideal center to find the most unique gifts. From one-of-a-kind collectibles, to women’s fashions, hand-crafted jewelry, folk art, home decor, and unique kitchen utensils and accents, Bazaar del Mundo is one place you won’t want to miss.

One of my go-to boutiques when it comes to the woman who loves jewelry. Based in the heart of Little Italy, Rosamariposa is the place to find endless options of imported jewelry, accessories, and Batik silks from around the world. The pieces from Indonesia, Bali, and India are to-die-for, and so affordable. You won’t be disappointed shopping here.

With Love

One of my favorite places to find distinctive holiday gifts. With an ever-changing inventory of cards, jewelry, journals, and one-of-a-kind home accessories, With Love Gift & Paperie is a true gem. I can always find something for that hard-to-shop-for person with the latest artsy coffee table book, luxurious smelling soap, candles, and holiday decorations.

Dolcetti Boutique, located in the heart of San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter, is the place to shop for that special guy, gal, or teen in your life. I love the assortment of stocking stuffers too. This is a one-stop-shop specializing in both women and men’s fashions, accessories, gift items, books, and jewelry. Extra bonus – Dolcetti features a full service salon with make-up artists!

Maison En Provence

Maison en Provence

The quaint French country-style boutique Maison En Provence is a must-see! Carrying such exquisite authentic items imported from France, such as pottery, linens, kitchen and home items, perfumes, books, scarves, kimonos, totes, children’s toys, soaps, and jewelry, just to name a few. Each item has been hand-selected by the husband and wife owners who are from the Provence region of France. This boutique is a must-shop for unique and special holiday gifts.

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 jalapeño 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
