Local Last Minute Gift Ideas from Mill Valley Readers

We asked our Facebook fans: If you had to buy a cool gift and could only shop at small businesses in Mill Valley (preferably locally owned ones), what would you buy and where?

Calling all last minute shoppers! Christmas is right around the corner, but if you're anything like me you still have a few presents left to buy. Oh, procrastination.

Luckily, Facebook fans have weighed in with some last minute gift ideas, all exclusively from Mill Valley shops. Hopefully this will inspire you this holiday season, and here's to keeping it local!

Here's what our Facebook readers had to say:

  • Olive oil from Frantoio Ristorante & Olive Oil Co. 
  • Gift certificate  for a haircut by Paddi at 13 Bernard Salon.
  • Anything from Moss & Moss
  • Missing Maison Reve...I wonder if they have an online store now... (They do!)
  • Dog garb at Alpha Dog, gift certificates from Milvali Salon, MV Hat Box, MV Beerworks and silly stocking stuffers from Two Neat!
  • Mint! It's full of treasures!
  • Lando! Beautiful women's clothing, coats, jackets, scarves, shawls, ahhh, amazing pants for all figures. I love this place. I buy all my gifts here. (Cute socks for men and women, too!)
  • Mint, the Depot book store, chocolate from MV Market, Moss & Moss, cards, wrap and gifts from All Wrapped Up, for starters anyway.
  • Sienna Rose has my vote!
  • Showroom Mill Valley, The Store Mill Valley or Carolina for great accessories such as clutches, jewelry and scarves or a luxe cashmere sweater.
  • Something handcrafted from Material Grace.
  • Growler full of beer from Mill Valley Beerworks.
  • Anything from Mint! I'd like a wire whale sculpture myself.
  • Two Neat!

Also, make your holiday gift go an extra mile. A handful of local businesses are offering promotions to support Kiddo! And Sally Around The Bay compiled a list that includes shops in Mill Valley and beyond.

Happy Holidays!!!

Definitely pick up several copies of Larry Moss' cd at Moss & Moss or at Tyler Florence for any friends who like really tasty music - easily the best $12 you can spend - way better than a tiny dish of beans at the beerworks.
