Designed in Paris, it's really no surprise that Nour Hammour, known for effortlessly cool outerwear, is a go-to label for chic celebs and Mademoiselles on both sides of the pond. You can get your hands on the gorgeous, responsible leather and shearling jackets at a three-day pop-up, running Thursday December 9th through Saturday, December 11th at The Bar Code in Presidio Heights. The timeless beauties are the kind of wardrobe elevators you will live in—and can't live without. Clearly, that's music to our layer-queen ears. Can you say magnifique?

If the thought of shopping for CBD gummies, rad footwear, chic handbags, jewelry and more from a gaggle of cool Cali brands has your heart aflutter, calm down—and clear your schedule for Saturday, December 11th. Welcome to the premiere Holidayfest at The Junction in Mill Valley (11am to 3pm).

Marin's Molly J., makers of luxe CBD confections, and Freda Salvador, stalwart of stylin' wearable shoes, have gathered several of their small business friends, including Clare V, Collective Hearts, Born to Roam Vintage Apparel, Floraymem and MAP ceramics for the two-day event. Along with checking off your gift list, there will fun activities too…ear piercing, custom chainstitch embroidery, and festive sipping (juice and champs) and snacking.

We're big proponents of double-duty gifting, and the Golden Gate National Park Conservancy has got it down with its cool selection of Bay Area-centric goodies that also support the organization's mission. That is, to preserve the Golden Gate National Parks, enhance the visitor experience and build community. As for the gifts themselves: We want them all.

Find a whole selection of Golden Gate Bridge goodies (foggy snow globes, book ends, mugs, tape dispensers, ornaments) and eye-catching prints, totes, hats and more featuring your favorite parks, i.e. Crissy Field, Alcatraz, The Presidio, Muir Woods, Marin Headlands, etc. Yep, there's something for everyone—toys and books to kitchen and home décor items to clothing, accessories, stationery and collectibles.

Another reason to shop locally? No supply-chain issues.
