November 30, 2018

Danielle Directo-Meston is the founder and editor of UncoverLA.com, a local blog dedicated to shining a light on Los Angeles’ most stylish places, people, and things. In partnership with West 3rd Street, she’s sharing her top gift picks discovered at the shopping district’s businesses; read on below, and feel free to follow Uncover LA at @uncoverlosangeles

As a reminder, the fashionable boulevard’s annual holiday street party takes place tomorrow, Saturday, December 1 from 2 to 6 p.m., and over 60 stores, restaurants, salons, and fitness studios will be joining.
