Iko Iko is one of our favorite LA boutiques. We love it so much that we always want a souvenir of our visit, because entering this shop feels like a quick trip to Japan or some sort of design utopia. If you have people on your list who love well-thought-out, finely-crafted pieces, Iko Iko is place to look.
Japanese silk Tabi socks make an amazing secret Santa gift, and their series of hand-made belts should satisfy most everyone on your list. Rowena Sartin, their in-house line, offers amazing geometric metal cuffs and fun polka-dotted scarves.
