The holidays will be here soon, and may already be on your mind while you enjoy your trip to San Diego. You may be walking through the shops and restaurants, trying new experiences, and thinking about how to surprise your loved ones this year. San Diego is full of inspiration when it comes to gift ideas. Here are a few suggestions for gifts to bring home or to surprise your loved ones with while spending the holidays in San Diego.
Planning to spend the holiday season with your loved ones in San Diego? Visiting a relative who lives in the area? A gift card to a local massage could be a great way to show that you care about them and feel that they deserve a break. There are plenty of spas, salons, and massages all over the city, including some in La Jolla. Check out our blog about local day spas to learn more about places where you can find a good massage.
If you’re visiting the city with a theatre lover, you may also want to surprise them with tickets to a show. You may even be able to find something that suits the season. Cygnet Theatre is currently in its sixth annual production of A Christmas Carol, which runs through December 29. If you have kids, you might want to take them to see Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas at The Old Globe. If you have someone who can’t make it, consider bringing home a playbill signed by the lead actors in the show, or an actor they particularly enjoy.
Chocolate and Sweets
What about the gifts you take home? Maybe you won’t be in San Diego during the actual holidays, or maybe you’ll want to get a gift for someone who isn’t with you. Chocolates are always a delightful gift and sweet souvenir to bring home. Here you can find unique chocolates made with Japanese wasabi as well as classic artisanal truffles. Consider checking out Chi Chocolat or Sweet Petite Confections, or in La Jolla, there’s California owned See’s Candies.
Hats and Clothes
There are plenty of clothing boutiques in San Diego and La Jolla to explore. Visitors often enjoy checking them out for themselves, but sometimes you see something that speaks to a loved one. It may be a designer hat or scarf, or a dress that’s just their style. Buying clothes can be tricky. You need to have a good sense of what the person likes. But if you know them well enough, this is another excellent option for a San Diego gift. Check out the shops on Girard Avenue and Prospect Street as well as La Jolla Boulevard. And in San Diego proper, you can’t leave out the outdoor shopping experiences.
