Gift Guide Retailers Around Town Offer Tips This Holiday Season

2016

Maybe you love shopping for just the right thing to give to your best friend — or perhaps you dread the thought of scouring the aisles with the last-minute masses to hunt down that perfect gift for mom. Either way, the bulk of us are certified amateurs when it comes to holiday shopping. So for this year’s Made in Santa Barbara Gift Guide, we’ve turned to the professionals for guidance. What follows is advice from the owners and staff of numerous stores around town on which Santa Barbara–made gifts they think your friends and family would love the most. And we’ve also included a few recommendations from our well-connected staff, listed under the “Indy Insight” umbrella. Happy gifting!

Edited by Matt Kettmann  Designed by Caitlin Fitch

AMy COOpeR Owner, Plum Goods (909 State St.; plumgoodsstore.com) Cooper is doubling the size of her popular arts and crafts store but will focus the expansion on selling “slow fashion” of ethically made clothing for men and women. “I have found brands that are doing some amazing things, and many of them aren’t sold in California or even in the U.S. yet,” she said. Meadow Rose: We sell her photo prints on wood as small art pieces (with magnets on the back) as well as bigger framed versions. We also sell pieces from her that spell out words such as “Santa Barbara, CA,” “Beach,” “Love,” and “Surf.” meadowrosephotoart.com Riz Board Shorts: These are made out of recycled plastic bottles taken out of the ocean! rizboardshorts.com Junk Girls: They’re based in Cambria, and we have a trunk show with their custom-stamped items, including popular phrases, brass key chains, and paperweights in aluminum and brass. junkgirls.com Santa Barbara Soaps: This is always a huge seller; we get orders from Canada for her soap! New this season are bubbling bath salts in beautiful reusable bottles with mini matching soaps in three scents: Holiday Cheer, Santa Claus Lane, and Sugar Plum Fairy. santabarbarasoaps.com Twenty-Four Blackbirds: These chocolate makers now have flights of truffles (five per flight) and salted caramel sets for $15 each. Both are amazing and so beautifully packaged. twentyfourblackbirds.com Taste of Ojai Salts: Chef Robin out of Ojai makes sets of culinary salts, including the Santa Barbara Salt trio, Santa Barbara Spice trio, and a new lavender trio. privatechefrobin.com

Coffee! Coffee! Coffee! Nothing beats opening a present that smells like a fresh cuppa joe. Santa Barbara is now home to a number of roasters, and here are the hottest blends around town.

JulIA MAyeR Owner, The French Press (528 Anacapa St.; 1101 State St.; 250 Storke Rd., Goleta) and Dune Coffee Roasters (dunecoffeeroasters.com) Holiday Blend ($15, 12 oz.): Always a blend of two seasonal coffees, this year it’s composed of Costa Rica Chayote and Colombia Piendamó. In 2016, we had the opportunity to visit both these farms, so this blend is super meaningful! It’s an approachable coffee that your relatives, friends, and neighbors will all love. Panama Elida ($25, 12 oz.): The producer, Wilford Lamastus, is a great friend, and we have been serving his coffee since 2009, back when it was just Todd and Julia behind the counter every day. Our first origin trip to Panama was to visit Wilford and his family, and we were truly blown away by the hospitality and the quality of his coffee, which has beautiful strawberry and chocolate flavors along with a heavy body. This will truly sing alongside some gingerbread men!

GReG nOVAK Owner/roaster, Carp Coffee (carpcoffee.com) Carpinterican ($8-$10, 8 oz.): This smooth, medium roast from Costa Rica has just a touch of the roast flavor, which brings a nutty, bold cup of coffee. It’s a popular roast by flavor and by name. Tarpits ($8-$10, 8 oz.): This Sumatran coffee is a dark, bold roast. Though bold, it delivers a smooth, earthy flavor.

Roasting Company (321 Motor Wy.; sbcoffee.com) State Street Blend ($16.50, 12 oz.): Our most popular coffee for more than 25 years, this double French roast is truly a cowboy cup of coffee, dark and gritty without being bitter. For true dark-roast coffee lovers, this is paradise.

and, coming soon, 2720 De la Vina St.; handlebarcoffee.com)

Gibraltar Seasonal Espresso Blend ($19, 12 oz.): Our best-selling coffee is a blend of coffees from Colombia, Guatemala, and Brazil. Ethiopia ($19, 12 oz.): It’s great, fruity, and floral. Colombia Microlots ($18-$20, 12 oz.): These, which we have received from our travels directly to Colombia, have been outstanding.

Espresso Milano Blend ($14.50, 12 oz.): With seven different origins of beans from all over the world, this light-roasted blend is specifically designed to be brewed as espresso, for it creates a thick, beautiful crème that sets it apart from any other.
