Even just reading the categories in this year’s gift guide makes me remember why I love Santa Cruz.
Where else would the essential list of giftees to buy for range from bookworms, environmentalists and wellness gurus to foodies, skaters, stoners and vinyl fetishists? Not to mention, of course, ocean lovers and techies. I want all of these people to have a big holiday party, and I want to be invited. I might even throw it. We can Secret Santa using this gift guide, of course. I have to go get the invitations written, so in the meantime enjoy shopping eclectically and locally!
