Still looking for that perfect gift for the friend who already has – or worse – doesn’t want anything? Or maybe you’re like me and you haven’t even begun shopping yet, not because you procrastinate but because [note to self: fill in with clever reason later].
Here’s a rundown of the “last minute shopping guides” we’ve posted here on blogging.la, as well as a few more we’ve found on other local blogs:
Caroline on Crack leads her list for “the girl about town” with poker chip looking gift cards for the hipster bar Seven Grand.
Will Campbell suggests buying someone a church.
Lori Nyx at LAist has a list perfect for the Lios and Danae Pyles on your list, including body parts from Necromance and Absinthe from Bev Mo. Although what most goths really want for X-mas is just for you to leave them and their lunchboxes alone(!).
Travis Koplow suggests the alt flea market Handmade in Sherman Oaks. Theys gots dashboard ninjas.
Our own Annika has suggestions for your poor ass friends (ie striking Guild writers and regularly broke aspiring Guild writers), topping the list with a membership to the LA Zoo – something you can use time and time again.
Jason Burns says you can’t go wrong with Wacko.
I’ve got some ideas for the film junkie in your life.
Siel the Green (and red) LA Girl has an insane amount of earth friendly suggestions.
And finally, I think the guide I mentioned last year – gift ideas for bloggers – still stands up, although not all the suggestions can be pulled together at the last minute.
Any other suggestions for great last minute gifts or shopping venues around LA?
