San Francisco isn't necessarily known for fashion—though the city has its share of great boutiques—but it is recognized for design. These gift shops are inseparable from their owners, as every item—many of which are handmade—seems to have been thoughtfully selected and artfully arranged. From jewelry to kitchenware and art prints to books, these design-focused retailers contain the sort of gifts you might buy with someone else in mind, but end up keeping for yourself. The city’s indie clothing stores and vintage emporiums also yield unique finds.
