Title: Holiday Gift Guide 2008: Shop local this year! Author: Staff Writer Publisher: San Diego City Beat Date: 12/9/2008 Like in years past, our holiday gift guide highlights cool buys from local artisans, shops and businesses. This year is, of course, a little different cause many of you (us, too) won't be unloading quite as much dough on presents as we might otherwise have. But, whatever you do spend, spend it locally. And hopefully this time next year, we'll all meet back here, glad that the bad times are behind us. Happy holidays! The Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego's gift shops (at both the Downtown and La Jolla locations) are two go-to spots for unusual gifts for creative-minded folks. Some items that got our attention: Nahui Ollin handbags made from recycled candy and gum wrappers ($175 for a large handbag, $24.95 for a wrislet only available Downtown); stainless-steel stag salt and pepper shakers ($26.50 for the pair) and Choe & Tomlinson's Self-Portrait mirrors beautifully detailed wall mirrors that allow the viewer to interact with his or her reflection ($45). If you like the look of the Ollin bags but are squeezed for cash, Edelmira and Miguel Angel Muñoz's ReciclArte caught our eye on a visit to Rosarito a few months back. You can find them at Pueblo Plaza, Benito Juarez No. 4356, in downtown Rosarito. 'Soos Rocks' vintage zodiac charm necklaces ($45 apiece) are just some of what you'll find at Pacific Beach's tucked-away Lily Grace boutique on Turquoise Street. Owner Jackie Simpson searches DIY site Etsy.com and design blogs to uncover cute, affordable accessories for her small shop. Decorated with swaths of baroque wallpaper and hot-pink chandeliers, Lily Grace is chock-full of affordable finds, from cozy sweaters to cute lingerie. The best part? With few exceptions (a leather jacket being a recent one), nothing in the store costs more than $100, and most stuff falls well below that steep price point. In other words, it's perfect for recessionistas and their gift-buying friends. 949 Turquoise St., Pacific Beach, 858-488-1848. Most shrink-wrapped gift baskets go in the re-gifting pile, but not the gorgeous and glam creations at Hillcrest's Cathedral. Baskets start at $50 and include any type of candle from the store, along with whatever other chic home design or gift items catch your eye. (Style-savvy owner Amy Capano will help you personalize it.) A chocolate-brown box, colorful moss and cellophane complete the package. We suggest you choose from Voluspa's luxurious, limited-edition Seasons collection: candles that look as gorgeous as they smell. We love the ones that subtly resemble ornaments, but not so much that you'd ever dream of putting them away after the holidays. 435 University Ave., Hillcrest, 619-296-4046. 'Who would've thought that Metallica's One could ever be made into a child-, er, baby-friendly tune? The Rockabye Baby CD series is made up of soothing lullabye renditions of aging-hipster (and -rocker) faves like Metallica, Pixies, Tool, Radiohead, The Cure and The Ramones. There's nothing cheesy about them, either this is really good stuff (in other words, you don't need to be a parent to appreciate the CDs). M-Theory Records in Mission Hills had a good selection of the CDs last time we checked. 915 West Washington St., 619-220-0485. FeelIt, the tribal-chic East Village boutique and art gallery embraces a concept that uni-named owner markalan calls creative retail an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink style of stocking that makes it a pleasure to pore over every corner of the store. --San Diego City Beat
