Amazon’s one-day shipping and low prices are irresistible this time of year. But if you’re craving a local experience this holiday season, we’ve put together a list of unique, indie shops in San Diego to hunt for the perfect gift. If not for the community, do it for the ambiance. Brick-and-mortar shops have Christmas tunes tinkling in speakers, pine tree candles burning, and twinkling window displays. Whether you’re shopping for children or adults, there’s probably something for you in the list below. Drop your own favorite local shop in the comments so we can build a larger list next year.
