Best Hidden Gift Shopping (2011)

Emerald Forest

I wear a lot of jewelry; no, I mean A LOT (at the moment I am wearing nine rings, 20 bangles and two necklaces). But I am also really picky about what and where I buy. Only in the Emerald Forest am I never able to leave without a box in my hand. I lust after the Jennifer Shon silk string necklaces for $16.50 and the Chan Luu chains for $244. My latest obsessions are the Indian bird houses that resemble the Taj Mahal and the gemstone Satya necklaces. I go in to buy my best friend a monogrammed cheese board and leave with more presents for myself. 12638 Ventura Blvd., Studio City; (818) 509-8529,
