Give Back and Check-Off Everyone’s Holiday Wish List—Even Yours!
Oh, there’s no place like Huntington Beach for the holidays—and no place like 5 Points Plaza to check everything off your December to-do list! Just 10 minutes from the Huntington Beach pier, 5 Points Plaza is a hub for no-frills, no-fuss shopping. Find fashion-forward gifts, grab Trader Joe’s necessities for the family feast and get your outfit on point for holiday happenings. Afterwards, refuel and replenish at the plaza’s restaurants and spas. If you’re not already on your way, channel your inner Santa and come ready for 5 Points Plaza’s holiday gift drives. Ho, ho, hurry on over!

‘Tis the season of giving, and 5 Points Plaza is giving to underserved youth in Orange County. Save the date for Dec. 10 when their annual Coats for Kids drive takes place. New and gently used coats, gloves, beanies and blankets will be collected for Orangewood Foundation from noon to 4 p.m. in front of Gap (convenient for picking up donations on the spot). Santa never forgets about his reindeer, and we can’t forget about our four-legged friends either. Kahoots Pet Store will also be accepting supplies for the Orange County Humane Society! Commemorate the day by taking photos with Santa and continue to spread Christmas cheer by singing loud for all to hear with live holiday music.
Couldn’t rummage up gently used items? First off, props to you for winning at minimalism; second, Gap and Gap Kids are filled with cozy coats kids will love! Pick one up for the drive and do some family holiday shopping while you’re at it. For our four-legged friends, pay a visit to Kahoots Pet Store next door. Kahoots has all-natural pet food, treats and chew toys for every animal—from backyards to barnyards! After dropping donations off at the drive, finish gathering gifts to go under the tree! Big 5 Sporting Goods is great for active members of the team while Tilly’s and Zumiez have the trendiest outfits for those hard-to-please teens. Complete the look with new kicks from Vans—everyone’s favorite holiday gift!
Take a break for a bite to eat, and why not get a gift card for a stocking stuffer too? Here are a few of our favorite spots for a bite to eat: Mario’s Mexican Food & Cantina is a nostalgic diner with comforting classics—their chicken tortilla soup will warm you right up on a brisk winter day. You can never go wrong with Lemon Thai Cuisine’s pad Thai, or try something new like the Spicy Tuna Pizza Pie with a crispy fried-rice crust at Hashigo Sushi. Finish off your meal with something sweet—it is the holidays, after all! Duck Donuts makes customizable donuts to order. They’re so good you’ll have to get five golden rings fresh out of the fryer!
Fa, la, la, la, spa! Forget about decking the halls for a moment and deck yourself out with a spa day. Whether your hands are dry from the cold (or from gift wrapping), a manicure from Glitz Nail Bar is the perfect remedy. Don’t stop there, however, as you can relieve end-of-year stress with a facial and massage at CloudMover Day Spa. With the new year on its way, it may also be time for a new look. Salon Champagne will have you looking fresh as can be for 2023! Self-care is the gift that keeps on giving, so pick up a gift card for a loved one. If you purchase gifts for out-of-towners along the way, visit the UPS Store before leaving to ship and send presents.
