We moved from Orange County to Burbank four years ago for my husband’s job. We have fallen in love with the small town feel of Burbank and the easy access to all the great things Los Angeles offers.
There were a few things that I learned pretty quickly once we moved here. For example, when the guy in front of you at Starbucks looks a lot like the guy in the commercial you saw yesterday, he probably is the very same guy. Also, the first few times you drive by a location being used for filming, you might drive by really slow or even circle around the block for a closer look. You might even call your mom and brag a little bit. After a few months, the novelty wears off and you will find yourself rolling your eyes at the gawker in front of you, driving super slowly.
With the Holiday Season in full swing, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite go-to gifts that I tend to give often.
All of these items are $25 or less.
Mr. 7 Hands
Supply Sergeant Messenger Bag
Unique Vintage Sunglasses
For somewhere between $10 to $20 bucks I can pick up some fun sunglasses for a friend. They are perfect for the ladies on your list who have a future so bright they gotta wear shades.
Unique Vintage is located at
2013 W. Magnolia Blvd.
Burbank, CA 91506
I had these as a kid, and my daughter received them as a gift. This is a toy she continually pulls out to play with and a gift we love to give. It turns any little girl into a fashion designer as she picks different “plates” to design a fantastic outfit to color. It’s about $13 from Amazon.com (Link In sidebar)
Lolli & Pops Candy Shop
A Lolli and Pops gift card is the perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth on your list.
