Top 5 Best Places in North San Diego To Shop this Christmas


Christmas shopping is a lot different from "just" shopping for yourself, your kids or for your significant other. Shopping for yourself is a bit of an exercise in our wallets and we focus on things we like or if the item looks good on us or if it will look good on our kids, or our significant other. On the other hand, shopping for others that is not our immediate family or for our friends requires us to think if she or he will like it or not and it doesn't end with just one person, picking a gift for a minimum of 5. This is where we get tested on what do we know about that person, what do they like, and probably hate ourselves for not paying too much attention. I swear! I go through this every year and its driving me nuts. Probably one of the reasons why I haven't done any Christmas shopping, it's hard enough for me to pick an item, dress or shoes for myself, it's harder to get items for other people.

However, no matter how stressful choosing a gift for that particular person is, it's rewarding to know and see that they genuinely love the gift that you gave them and not just because they are being polite. I know it's the thought that counts, but, show your sincerity by choosing the item that you think they will love. So we decided to put a list of our TOP 5 Bet Places in North San Diego To Shop this Christmas.
