San Diego Locals Gift Guide 2020

Continuing our Sustainable Gift Guide series for 2020, we want to dedicate this guide to some of our favorite products by San Diego small businesses. The best part is you don't have to be a San Diego local to support these incredible brands! Through our gift guides we highlight conscious #ProductsWeLove and hope to help you discover companies that are creating sustainable products, giving back and making a difference.

San Diego Locals Gift Guide 2020


We can't get enough of these rose-colored glasses! Roseys Eyewear is a line of sunset-inducing sunglasses designed and run by one woman here in San Diego. These mood-boosting sunnies are extraordinary and encourage the wearer to see the world bloom before their eyes. With three available frame styles + a diffuser sunglasses chain, you’re bound to find something for every sunglass-lover on your list!

Instantly upgrade any outfit by adding one of Kith+Kimono’s sustainable pieces to your wardrobe. Each kimono is made in LA from gorgeous deadstock fabric that would otherwise likely end up in a landfill. One of our favorites is the Claire Tie Dye Kimono with a beautiful, grey tie-dyed fabric that effortlessly blends together in any ensemble. With a size range of XS - XL instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, the wearer can feel confident that this kimono was made with them in mind!

We know 2020 hasn’t been the year of travel, but this unique travel accessory is something you can use daily! Clever Nomad is a BIPOC, veteran-owned company run by one travel-loving woman based out of San Diego. The first product in the travel line is a sleek travel wallet that can also be used while hiking, shopping or doing just about anything else! The thin, lightweight design with adjustable strap makes it to conceal when needed. Makes the perfect gift for those wanderlusting for the next adventure! 


While staying close to home, more people are seeking unique experiences in their own backyards. The Moonstone Table Event Co. is here to curate one-of-a-kind luxury picnics tailored to your needs! Whether for date night, an intimate birthday celebration, engagement dinner or anything in between - they have you covered. From thoughtfully designed table placements + decor to Instagram-worthy grazing plates + a bluetooth speaker to play your favorite tunes. This holiday season, gift a San Diego experience they'll never forget!

For the person that always forgets their reusable bag, we have a solution! Our newest merch item is an expandable mesh tote made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton. This mesh market tote compacts to take up almost no room, but expands to double its size when full! It’s the perfect bag to bring along for those impromptu grocery runs, farmer’s market finds and beach days.
