Shop Small South Bay Holiday Guide

Did you know when you shop local, you have a direct impact on our community’s economy? Thats why it’s our Holiday goal and wish for all of our friends to make an effort to do all their holiday shopping at small local businesses. We’ve hand picked 8 local businesses to help make your holiday shopping a breeze this year…

Beach Blankets:

If you live within 10 miles of a beach your gonna want to keep one of these Esplanade Brand Mexican inspired blankets in the trunk of your car for an emergency beach picnic. This brand is based out of Redondo Beach and has some great other gift options. The owner Jessica was nice enough to give us a 10% discount with code: BETTOLINO10


The idea of giving perfume as a gift is nothing new, in fact, it’s an ancient practice that dates back to Roman times. But if you’re looking to give a perfume that is fresh and new, you’ll want to check out Indigo Ray Botanicals. They are based out of LA and use only sustainable plant based ingredients and are handcrafted in small batches. Use code: Bettolino Kitchen for 15% off your next order!

I’m pretty picky about my jewelry, I love subtle understated California inspired jewelry and Society Nautique is just that. It’s based out of Hermosa beach and all handmade. Society Nautique‘s owner and designer, Lizzie, was kind enough to offer us 10% off with code: WELCOME10


We love succulents because they don’t take much work to maintain. That’s why we think this is a great gift to give anyone with or without a green thumb. We love @BeachGirlSucculents based out of Manhattan beach for the prettiest pots of arranged succulents to give. When you purchase an arrangement of $50 or more the owner Allison has agreed to give our subscribers 10% off with code: BGS10

What do you gift to the person that already has everything? A Bettolino gift card. One of my favorite things to give as a gift is an experience.
