This Holiday Season Shop Local

Enda King 

 

Enda King an Irishman from Dublin with a keen sense of fashion, brought his stylish duds to Abbot Kinney Boulevard when he opened his flagship Enda King Men in 2005. The boutique became an instant success, frequented by celebrities, locals, and travelers, so King expanded with an eponymous new boutique last summer on Santa Monica’s happening Montana Avenue. Enda King is an inviting space bathed in natural light, with a maximalist approach to everything a guy could need. Think beautiful shirts, jeans, jackets, shorts, T-shirts, swimwear, and a kicky array of socks and boxers. You’ll also find home goods and accessories, and books spanning topics from music to travel and film. Manly bars of charcoal soap, lotion, cologne, candles, and wallets make for great gifts, and there are coats, scarves, gloves, and beanies for chilly days on the Coast. This is a one-stop shop for men, with a casual yet attentively spot-on service.

Phenomenal Femelle 

 

Father-daughter duo Ron and Brooke Feder, the savvy proprietors behind Montana Avenue’s new Femelle boutique, understand the subtle nuance of the stylish L.A. woman. Their intimate 1,500-square-foot space carries both Los Angeles–based and international brands, with a collection of ready-to-wear pieces as well as staple items like premium denim and T-shirts. It’s a concept store inspired by strong women and soft silhouettes because one does not have to preclude the other. The minimalist, feminine design showcases a special mix of casual chic alongside the classic and sophisticated because let’s be honest, every woman is a little bit of both. Brooke sums up the boutique’s essence nicely when she says, “Our walls are lined with chic, feminine, and wearable pieces. We want all women to feel unique, timeless, and beautiful.”

No Leaves Unturned 

A favorite of creatives and a place of healing for mind and body, Larissa Love cosmetics is acclaimed for selling organic and vegan bath, body, and home fragrance products made in the United States. An established brand for 20 years, the boutique is now expanding into the tea industry, and it’s a logical next step for this trusted authority on beauty and wellness. Love herself chooses the collection of more than 60 different types of teas, ranging from herbal Ayurvedic to Japanese matcha. She has fashioned an authentic tea house, offering a crème-de-la-crème selection of herb and flower mixtures. Love believes that teas are a fantastic, flavorful natural medicine, and cites their detoxifying and calming attributes. She swears by her expert curation of product. 

 

It all began with her passion for cooking. After struggling with food allergies most of her adult life, and seeing others recognize sensitivities to common things like gluten and dairy, Love prides herself in using only the best organic components for both her personal cooking and her teas. She understands the need for a healthy balance in the body and she chooses ingredients to promote it, as well as a blissful state of relaxation and harmony. Cool weather makes us don favorite sweaters and cozy up with loved ones, and the perfect accompanying cherry on top is a cup of warm, soothing tea.

Gifting Sweet 

 

One of our favorite home stores on Montana Avenue, EXIR, has amassed an eclectic collection of gift options for this holiday season. Outgoing owners Reza and Maryam Torab are longtime Santa Monica residents who travel the world to select merchandise and commission craftsmen and artists for one-off creations. Carved wooden serving pieces, mother-of-pearl champagne saucers, European linens, elegant glassware, fragrant candles and diffusers, and handmade Christmas ornaments are beautifully displayed on tables and shelves. With its chic abundance of simple, modern design, EXIR should be your go-to place to find unique presents for those people who seem to already have everything.
