|We Are Frends|
9. We Are Frends
Speaking of bling, these headphones aren't just a piece of equipment -- they're a fashion accessory to boot. We Are Frends designs stylish modules for private listening, including three kinds of glitzy white-and-gold earphones along with comparatively understated denim ones, too. $99 - $199, WeAreFrends.com.
Capitol / EMI
8. The Beach Boys Christmas Harmonies
Love 'em or hate 'em, there's no disputing the fact that the Beach Boys helped define the so-called California sound. And since Angelenos need some tunes to go along with their fancy new headphones, The Beach Boys Christmas Harmonies should help put everyone in the holiday spirit -- especially when there's no snow around for miles. $13.98, Amoeba.com.
7. Tonx Coffee
LA's own Tony "Tonx" Konecny is the man behind this eponymous brand of local coffee, and since most Angelenos love caffeine almost as much as weed, it's a nice alternative to store-bought mega-brands like Starbucks. The Mad Libs-style gift subscription guide helps locate the ideal caffeine-themed present within a specific budget, so you can get your friends amped without breaking the bank. $24 - $38, Tonx.org.
