LAist's Local Foodstuffs Gift Guide, Holiday 2020

Stories like these are only possible with your help!
You have the power to keep local news strong for the coming months. Your financial support today keeps our reporters ready to meet the needs of our city. Thank you for investing in your community.

Not even a pandemic can squash the shopping obligations of The Holidays. Since eating and drinking your feelings has been the most popular hobby of 2020, we stuck with the theme.

We will be inhaling fistfuls of cereal while drinking canned wine (don't knock it 'til you've tried it!), but perhaps the people on your holiday list deserve an upgrade — local style.

SoCal proprietors are ready to handle your eclectic gifting tendencies, varying budgets, creative tastes and distinctive personalities.

Or maybe you're only buying presents to maintain the veneer of being a functional human being.
