After leaving its original Arts District digs behind, indie retailer Poketo has opened up an outpost at the Line Hotel in Koreatown—and now at ROW DTLA, Platform and in Little Tokyo. Find well-curated arts and crafts and other eclectic goods, handpicked by the store’s owners, husband-and-wife team Ted Vadakan and Angie Myung. Guests of the hotel with discerning tastes can pick up L.A.-themed gifts, most likely designed and made by homegrown talents, before jetting off home at what may be the best hotel gift shop.
We all know what it’s like to search for that perfect gift. Your best bet? L.A.’s top gift shops, of course. These shops are full to the brim with giftable goodies and covetable objects you just might want for yourself. Find gift ideas for everyone and any occasion—from your Valentine’s Day sweetheart to all the family members on your Christmas list. Birthday and wedding presents? No problem. We (and these top shops) have you covered.
