If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably spent more time building your wish list before actually attempting to hit the mall. But hey! It’s Christmas – the time of giving, forgiving and treating the ones you love—including yourself. Because we share the sentiment, The LA CANVAS team created the ultimate last minute Christmas gift guide for all of the peeps on your list, including the foodies, the music enthusiast, the gallery hopper and the fashion forward kids. Check it out below:


Yes, you could just give the foodie in your life a gift card to pretty much anywhere but where is the fun in that? Instead, we present two options: Wyldfire hot Sauce is the result of porn-star-turned-DJ Danny Wylde and Chef Royce Burke and packs a punch while the DJ Khaled x Ciroc gift set will give you the key to good vibes. Take your pick.

Hot Sauce: WYLDEFIRE, $8.50,
CÎROC Mango Gift Set: CÎROC, $43,


We all have a friend who is constantly at shows and for that individual we have two options: their favorite musician captured mid concert by on-the-pulse photographer Natalie Somekh or Teenage Engineering’s Pocket Operator so they can make their own original tunes.

Death Grips 8x 10: NATALIE SOMEKH, $15,
PO-16 factory: TEENAGE ENGINEERING, $59,

Fashion – Him

Let’s face it, people can be really picky with what they wear, especially if your pal is in the fashion industry. So think simple when shopping for a dude, the details are the key. Whether it’s the watch’s hands —or in Prize’s case, legs—or a simple pattern on a classic shoe—such as the tooled leather on the Vans x Brooks England collab—impress the guy with some sick deets.

Kickin’ It in Silver: Prize NYC, $190,
Classic Vans Sk8-Hi: THE BROOKS x VAULT, in Vault Stores only.

Fashion – Her

When shopping for the fashionable gal in your life, mimic the above sentiment, just add a “go big or go home” element to it. You can’t go wrong with shades by Crap Eyewear, or a wearable art piece by Gucci.

The Tuff Safari: CRAP Eyewear, $74-$92,


Gucci Garden exclusive modal silk shawl: GUCCI, $420,


We are not even going to suggest giving the artist in your life something along the lines of notebooks and drawing material. Instead, go for a sculpture-like candle such as the Wiks Praying Hands Candle, below, or go for a straight up motivator, like Monk Provisions weed infused drinks.*

Praying Hands Candle: WIKS STUDIOS, $85,


Drinking Botanicals: MONK PROVISIONS, $45 for 5,

The coolest thing about this list? You can always ship it directly to the recipient. Hey, better late than never.
