Great gift ideas from San Francisco
Want to give a gift that’s truly from San Francisco this year? Here are some fun ideas for presents with a unique local twist.
-Anything from Zazzle.com, including customized gifts you can make yourself. The local online t-shirt company has great holiday ideas for you – including personalized postage stamps, iPhone and iPad cases, greeting cards, mugs, ornaments and much more. Plus, they are a local company that gives back with sponsorship of events like the Bay to Breakers footrace.
-Anchor Steam beer. Your out-of-town friends and family will love a gift of a case of Anchor Steam, especially if it comes hand-delivered by you! They also have great t-shirts and other products if shipping alcohol across state lines isn’t allowed where they live.
-Bi-Rite cookbook, Eat Good Food. This new book, part food porn, part recipes, is perfect for any foodie in your life. Plus, they’ll donate $1 for every copy of Eat Good Food sold anywhere, equally distributed between two organizations doing amazing work on food education locally, The Community Alliance with Family Farmers (CAFF) and Nextcourse.
-Neighborhood sweatshirts. Neighborhoodies specializes in creating custom sweatshirts with your neighborhood’s name – whether it’s Sunset, Richmond, Presidio, Ocean Beach or anywhere else.
-Hand-embroidered city pillows. These custom creations are pricey but for the parent or grandparent who has everything, they could make a very nice commemorative gift. City themed and kitschy cool. They’re also available for states and regions.
-Ghiradelli chocolate. You can’t go wrong! This is an easy and inexpensive gift for anyone who loves San Francisco.
