The Last-Minute Shopper’s SOS List of Holiday Gifts

Sometimes, the whirlwind of the holidays can leave even the most prepared gift-shoppers scrambling for presents with only a few weeks of December left. To help keep you from dashing down the halls of Target on December 23rd, we compiled a list of unique gifts that residents of Olson Homes’ communities can find locally.

Near Lumina Walk in Rosemead

Searching for an eye-catching piece of jewelry for someone special? Look no further than Gemorie Fashion, a boutique jewelry store at the nearby Atlantic Times Square Mall that is stocked with modern and exquisite jewelry lines. They carry GIA (Gemological Institute of America) certified diamonds, designer time-pieces, and plenty of other sparkling goodies.

If you’re shopping for anyone who loves the line of Sanrio characters, like Hello Kitty or Gudetama, Sanrio Surprise is located on Rosemead Blvd. This store has all sorts of adorable Sanrio-themed plushies, accessories, and treats that are sure to put a smile on any Sanrio fan’s face.

Near Laurel Walk in La Mirada

This next gift idea might throw you for a loop. Sometimes the best presents we can buy our loved ones aren’t objects, but are experiences that we can enjoy with them. That’s why our suggestion for Laurel Walk residents is to purchase a pair of tickets or season pass to nearby Knott’s Berry Farm. At this famous Southern California attraction, you and a friend or family member can spend the whole day together riding roller coasters and enjoying shows. If you go between now and January 2nd, you can enjoy the spirit of the holidays in a whole new way by experiencing their festive Knott’s Merry Farm celebration!

Near Jasmine Walk in Buena Park

There are plenty of unique shops at the Buena Park Downtown Mall, but when you’re trying to find a gift for that person (you know who they are), who is extremely hard to buy for, there is one shop that might come to your rescue, Geeky Mamas! This shop is officially a clothing store, but we can assure you that it is so much more. They buy and sell hundreds of fun, functional, and hilarious items that focus on all sorts of popular TV shows, movies, video games, and more. To make things better, Geeky Mamas is locally owned and is operated with plenty of love for all things geeky.

Living in an Olson community means having plenty of nearby options for dining, entertainment, and (of course) shopping! If you’re looking to ring in the new year by searching for a brand new townhome, feel free to contact our team of helpful Community Representatives and ask about the homes in your favorite Olson neighborhood.
