11 Unique Gift Picks From Quirky Downtown Boutique Ooga Booga

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

In the spirit of our artsy, anti-establishment pals, what better way to stick it to The Man than to exercise your consumer rights at one of LA's most left-of-the-dial shops? Known for stocking cult fave brands like Opening Ceremony and Creatures of Comfort alongside a curated collection of 'zines, underground vinyl and more, essential indie boutique Ooga Booga is definitely a go-to spot for against-the-grain giftables.

If you've yet to check off the too-cool-for-school folks on your holiday list, we've rounded up a handful creative finds from the small but mighty Chinatown store. From Dusen Dusen's notebook print backpack to LA-based artist and designer Alexandra Cassaniti's summery sunnies to mixtapes compiled by an underground music legend (bust out that Walkman), check out more eclectic gift ideas after the jump.
