I’m off and running to my good friend’s birthday brunch at the exclusive Soho House in Weho and I have about 20 minutes to spare to pick up the ideal gift. Have no fear, I already know where I’m going: I head out to the Brentwood Country Mart and walk straight to the Brentwood General Store.
One of the best perks of owning an errand service is that I know exactly where to get great gifts in a pinch that will pack a punch. I maintain focus (not an easy feat when you’re surrounded by fabulous fragrances, linens, jewelry and more) to find the perfect present within 12 minutes, leaving time to spare for them to wrap it and for me to write out the card. My friend is an avid cook and baker so I decide on this gorgeous porcelain cake stand by Two’s Company along with a matching cake cutter. And yes, if you’re wondering, this present wowed at the brunch table.
There is no need, however, to trek to the west side for a great gift. With two locations in LA, D.L. Rhein is bound to have a fashionable or unique present to garner the ‘ooohs’ and ‘ahhs’ every time. Owner Deborah Rhein offers hand-crafted belts (the kind that other women will covet), jewelry, home accents and so much more. Trust me ladies, just a visit for visit’s sake will fulfill you.
Take it from someone whose profession requires that they bring the perfect gift, Brentwood General Store and D.L. Rhein are sure to impress, time and again.
