Fortunately for you, you don’t need to. Read on for a guide on where to shop in San Francisco for the holidays season!
Habbi Habbi

Habbi Habbi is such a refreshing step away from the tired old world of massive retail stores. This isn’t Walmart, folks. It isn’t even Toys R Us. This unique store offers a massive selection on a wide variety of toys from around the world.
The collection has been cultivated very thoughtfully to provide a large selection of toys that will give the child in your life a culturally rich playing experience.
You just don’t see shops like this very often. The entire store feels like a child’s playroom, with a cozy atmosphere that is rare and refreshing.
For the children you know, there is no better place to shop in the Bay Area than Habbi Habbi.

Everlane Lab

Everlane Lab is a boutique clothing store that trends on the more affordable side. No, not superstore affordable, but affordable for what it is: a chic shop with high-end wares.
They actually run most of their business on the internet. As a result, they benefit from a fairly low overhead. The shop itself is small but comfortable, and because their expenses aren’t extremely high, they are able to pass the savings on to you, the consumer.
Their sales are also pretty transparent, so you know what everything costs on the front end.
If you would like to buy someone special some high-end clothing at a decent price, you would be well advised to stop on over to Everlane Lab!

Modern Times Bookstore

Modern Times Bookstore is cool. It’s really cool. If you want to give the gift of reading to someone that values culturally diverse literature and activism, Modern Times Bookstore is the place for you.
Located in a largely Latin sect of San Francisco, it places a big influence in particular on Hispanic literature, but you will find great stuff of every variety at Modern Times Bookstore.
Don’t think that the store is only for the activist in your life though. It is also good for a culturally diverse mystery and even has an interesting selection of cookbooks.
Plainly put, at Modern Times Bookstore, you have the opportunity to pick up books you will not find at your local Barnes and Noble. If you are looking for books there are no better Bay Area shopping opportunities that are better.
