I’m not much for shopping, but I love giving gifts, so I’ve found a few stores where I know I won’t have to spend much time looking before finding just the right thing. One of these places is L’Ambiente, in downtown Larkspur on Magnolia. It has a fabulous selection of the most wonderful and beautiful personal and home accessories, including many made by American artisans, which I love to support.

The owner, Margaret VonTreskow, is a really great shopping advisor, and I always enlist her help to find just the right gift. She knows so much about the artisans and companies she carries and she shares that with you, so you have a connection with what you’re purchasing, and a story to tell to the gift recipient.

There’s free street parking on Magnolia and in the free lot at the corner of Magnolia and Ward Street, just a few shops down from L’Ambiente.
