I am excited to share another South Coast Plaza shopping series with you, and centered around holiday gift-giving! In my last series, I featured items to shop for a vacation or getaway in Irvine, and this series will focus on various gift items for him, her and kids. To kick off the series, I'll be highlighting items for babies, kids and teens at select South Coast Plaza stores - let's get a head start on holiday shopping!

Aside from the elaborate bed and playroom setups, you have an assortment to choose from for small to large gifts. For babies, in particular, there's a plethora of the softest plush animals and the coziest blankets, and booties and cap sets. If you would like to make your gifts especially special, PB offers customization with monogramming or name printing/embroidery on select items!
