Early Guide to Holiday Gifts

Imagine yourself during the final weeks before the holidays not scrambling for last-minute gifts, but instead relaxing with friends, enjoying seasonal parties and generally taking in the good times.

We’d love to help you get there. Just swing by the shops at Public Market Emeryville in November and fill your shopping cart with gifts early. Below are some ideas to get you started:

Wall Art
For the students or even 20-somethings on your list, Urban Outfitters offers a variety of posters (with assorted styles of frames). Whether it’s simple graphics from design studios, striking photography or prints by top artists, UO has wall art in a range of prices and styles.

Music-based Gifts Under $50
The up-and-coming musician in your life can always use accessories such as an instrument bag, a mini amp, microphone stands or Kurt Adler-designed Beatles tree ornament sets. And the dedicated rocker can never have too many drum sticks, guitar picks or replacement strings.

Gifts for the Budding Barista
For delivering to clients or bringing to parties, Peet’s Coffee offers beans by the pound. One of the Emeryville-based company’s seasonal favorites is its Holiday Blend, with festive flavors of chocolate and baking spices. Stop by the café at Public Market Emeryville to browse an assortment of coffee accessories, including brew kits, designer mugs and more.

Give the Gift of Fitness
In addition to providing one of the hottest one-hour group personal training workouts available, Orangetheory Fitness sells accessories for women and men along with exercise-related products. Stop by the Emeryville studio – located just outside the north end of the Food Hall – to see a variety of water bottles, headwear, tops and other clothing.

Stylish Eyewear
Boasting a 5-star Yelp review profile, EmeryBay Optics sells luxury eyewear, including sunglasses and prescription frames from Rayban, Lafont and Gucci to emerging designers. American made, sustainably produced, and locally sourced products form the heart of EBO’s collection. Known for its customer-friendly service, EBO specialists can help you pick out a gift to fit your needs.
