Best Place to Shop for Your Friend's Baby Shower (2013)


Let your friend fill up her registry at Buy Baby Buy. Let her mother-in-law brave the crowds and awful lighting at Kids R Us to buy her a layette of onesies and stacks of diapers. Just because you're now spending your Saturdays at baby showers instead of mimosa-fueled brunches does not mean you've lost your sense of style. Which means you're going to shop for her shower at Limonaia, registry be damned. Jessica Goldfarb's stylish little shop moved from its original location in San Francisco's Russian Hill to Montana Avenue three years ago, taking on in the process a kid-friendly focus that suits its north-of-Montana neighbors. While it's not strictly a baby store — there are lovely candles, and fetching trays, dishes and vases — it's absolutely the perfect place for someone looking for a great baby gift, hold the giant shopping cart. Choose from a carefully curated selection of infant clothing, stuffed animals, artisanal toys and thick, baby-friendly books; you can't go wrong with any of it. Unless, of course, you believe gifts should be practical and boring. Then you might as well go to Walmart. 1325 Montana Ave., Santa Monica, 90403. (310) 458-1858, —Sarah Fenske
