What’s New in Los Angeles


by Estee Cohen.

In my family we call the summer period from June to August the “season of giving” because there are so many family birthdays, graduations, and anniversaries that everyone coughs up a few shekels to chip in for gift after gift after gift. It can be hard to come up with a unique idea but the newly opened Jemma Gifts might have the answer for my family and for yours. Cindy Factor has procured some of the cutest, most useful present ideas including beach towels, baby blankets, beach bags, makeup bags and more. All Jemma Gifts can be personalized. See her adorable products on her Facebook page at Facebook.com/JemmaGifts or text 8186247274 for orders.
