Accents Jewelry

A pearl in the row of generic stores that now clutter Santa Monica’s Main Street, this is the perfect place to pick a present, selling unique handmade jewellery from a small selection of Californian designers. Attend one of their popular Tuesday evening workshops and you might just be the next big thing – handful of people have graduated from the weekly workshops to have their work sold in store.


Stepping in Mindfulnest is like taking a wellness shot of your favourite smoothie. In this gold mine of a gift store every piece is handcrafted and promotes positivity. You won’t find tacky fridge magnets, but you will find carpe diem slogan pencils that will make Monday seem less painful.

Angel City Books

The musky scent of used books hits you as you walk through the door and invites you to linger a little longer as you pen through well-worn editions of classics, chick-lit and comedy scripts. Vintage vinyls play out throughout the store with an impressive, curated back catalogue that you’re likely to find elsewhere. Make sure to check out the gallery of contemporary artists at the back of the store for a unique souvenir.


Forget IKEA as the Scandinavian design beacon, Huset houses over 60 Norwegian, Danish and Swedish designers. “The house” is a one-stop shop for the best in modern in Scandi homeware, textiles and furniture, from interpretative fine art to rose gold cocktail shakers.
