"Christmas in California" has a nice ring to it, doesn't it? While we love a White Christmas at our New England Lark Hotel properties, a West Coast trip can provide a welcome break from the winter weather. In Northern California, at our Mendocino boutique hotel Blue Door Group, winter weather is mild, with daytime temperatures in the mid-50s. Make a new tradition this year with a quiet retreat on the coast, and check off your gift list with some local holiday shopping in Mendocino.
We love Twist because it perfectly captures that California coastal vibe we love so much. From soft, screen-printed tees and trucker hats to bike baskets and sunglasses, Twist sells products made with natural materials, many made in the U.S. You're sure to find great gifts for that eco-conscious person in your life.
Good luck getting out of this well-curated boutique without buying a few items for yourself too. With on-trend jackets and tops, soft scarves, stackable rings, and rustic pottery, this shop has everything you need to complete that lifestyle blogger look. Leave plenty of time to explore all of the unique home goods and body care items on display too.
This nursery is worth the drive north to Fort Bragg for that someone who's always hard to buy for. With a huge selection of Insta-worthy arrangements of all shapes, sizes, and colors, you'll find an adorable gift—even for the self-professed "black thumb" on your list. Then pay a visit to the nearby Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens' Festival of Lights (https://www.gardenbythesea.org/calendar/festival-of-lights-2017/) after your holiday shopping in Mendocino!
