Holiday shopping is in full swing, and if you haven't started yet, you'd better get moving! One thing to remember this holiday season is to shop local - support your community by frequenting those mom & pop shops and small businesses. It keeps money in your community and helps out the people who own these businesses - your neighbors.
This holiday I've teamed up with eleven other bloggers to curate gift collections sponsored by SixDoors - a phenomenal new app that supports local shopping in San Francisco - #ShoplocalSF. You can select a gift (or something for yourself) from the many stores they feature, and get same day delivery within the city of San Francisco - and you don't need to live in SF to enjoy this. Need a present for someone in the city? Download the SixDoors app, select your gift, and they will giftbag it and deliver it that day. Pretty awesome, huh?
If you still need a reason to try this out - enter the GIVEAWAY! Click on the widget below, follow the instructions, and you can win a $100 giftcard from SixDoors. And even though it's gift shopping season, I say go ahead - spend it on yourself.
If you're heading to a holiday party and want to bring the hostess something special, check out MY gift selections. They're not the typical bottle of wine or candle - they're a little more unique, for the "Hostess with a twist".
Does the party-thrower enjoy food, cooking and the like? Then tempt her with something to cook with, something to eat, or something to just get that darn bottle open.

Does your host/hostess love sitting down by the fire with a good book? Then treat them to something new to read or something that literally supports their literary collection.
(left to right) “Lofts” Book from Viracocha, $45 | Bridge Bookends from Twig Gallery, $39.95 | “Maxims”: A Mirror of Paris” Book from Bell Jar, $98
Did your host recently move, or does he like to update his surroundings from time to time? Then give him something pretty to look at AND useful.
