Shop Locally Without Leaving Home With This Trio Of S.F. Gifting Sites

As much as we love shopping at local sources, we admit it can be pretty tempting to log online and shop the globe instead. To break the bad habit, we found three out of this world, but still based right here at home, websites to shop until our clicking fingers go numb — in a good way! Behold, our three new favorite Bay Area-based e-commerce destinations to spoil our lucky friends (and ourselves) this holiday.

Wantful
Ugh! Sorry, we were just thinking about that super-picky friend we have to get a present for. If you’re in the same boat sleigh, we’ll let you in on this convenient gifting site, Wantful. For those never-satisfied peeps expecting to be wowed, you can head over to Wantful and create a custom catalog of pressies with them in mind. Just fill in how much you want to spend, answer a few questions about the picky person, and the e-shop will provide a plethora of awesome gifts to suit their taste. Select a dozen of those options and Wantful will send a beautiful personalized catalog for your receiver to shop!

Mark & Graham
Personalization is the name of the game when it comes to gifting. So, for our moms, pops, bosses, and everyone in between, Williams Sonoma's new off-shoot brand Mark & Graham might just be your savior. Whether your old man is in need of a new monogrammed backgammon set or mother dearest would like some swanky, alphabet-encrusted wine accessories, these initials-stamped prezzies will put everyone else's gifts to shame.
Half Hitch Goods
As much as we love them, let's be real, the holidays can also be a pain in the you know what. The overconsumption, pushy sales people — you get the picture! To make yourself feel more at ease, e-commerce site Half Hitch Goods sells extra-special, sentimental items with a unique story, that don't come straight from a department store. Shop the site and you'll find goods that are heirloom quality and meant to be held onto for years on end! Here you will find everything from reclaimed pottery to tomes of yesteryear. A collector's dream come true!
