LAist's Local Foodstuffs Gift Guide, Holiday 2020

Support your source for local news!
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

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.
