Shop Local

Support Small Businesses

This is a holiday season unlike any other –– and while we can’t gather in person for our 4th Annual Engage LA: Gift of Giving event, it’s never been more important to embrace the spirit of generosity that makes this time so special.

That’s why we’re bringing L.A. shops and stores directly to you–– so you can shop safely, online, and at home for special one-of-a-kind gifts and support our small business community.

Many of the products featured below come from businesses that are owned and operated by women or Angelenos of color –– a tribute to the cultures, communities, and crafts that bring our city to life.

Browse the businesses, and feel free to check out their broader collections by following their links. Many businesses are also giving a special Engage LA: Gift of Giving 10% discount. Use code “GIFT10” at purchase to activate the discount.

Have fun, stay safe, and happy holidays!
