Where to Find Stylish Gifts for Kids (and Fur Babies!) at This Weekend’s West 3rd Street Holiday Party

November 29, 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


While there are plenty of fuzzy feelings to be had from gifting the fashionable women and men in our lives, there’s truly nothing more magical than reliving the holiday magic through the eyes of a child as they unwrap their presents. On that note, we’re continuing our gift guide series with a roundup of products from West 3rd Street boutiques with kids (including the the four-pawed ones) in mind.

From hip hop books and chic clothes to imagination-inspiring toy sets and even luxury playthings for pets, see some of our favorite picks discovered during a recent shopping adventure along the stylish stretch. Even better: You’ll be able to find most of these items on shelves during the West 3rd Street holiday street party this Saturday, December 1 from 2 to 6 p.m., and some stores will even be offering discounts during the event—meaning you won’t mind picking up a few prezzies for yourself with the money you’ve saved.
