The holiday is just around the corner and our holiday gift guide ends right on Black Friday. To help conclude our three-part series, we want to focus on the members of the family who never fail to make us smile. They are the youngest members of the family and often bring us joy and surprise us with unremarkable kindness. Although you might not have your own biological children there is usually a child or young adult in your family that you can appreciate. On this gift guide we break away from the traditional gifts of electronics and video games to recommend more traditional toys and novelty items your young family member might enjoy. Our list consists of gift ideas for all ages (even family members who are young at heart). Starting from youngest to oldest, here are our top picks for the holiday season.Read More

Today we tackle part two of Enji’s top holiday picks for family. Last week we focused on the strong women of your life and today we want to switch the focus to the men. Whether this means paying tribute to your best friend, or your high school teacher who never gave up on you, there is a guy out there who supported all your endeavors. As we all know men tend to be a little more difficult to shop for simply because of the overabundance of women’s gifts in stores. To help prevent you from running all over town, we have put together a list of male centered stores to find that perfect gift for him, each based in California to ensure that your gift comes in time for the holidays. There is something for every kind of guy in this list and we are sure there is at least something he will appreciate.Read More
