The Point Is a One-Stop Shop for Everyone on Your List!

November is coming to a close, which means the holiday shopping season is in full swing! With so many loved ones and so little time, securing all of your gifts in time can seem a bit overwhelming. Thankfully, The Point in El Segundo is the ultimate one-stop shopping destination in Los Angeles.

Whether you’re shopping for your sporty friend or in need of some creative stocking stuffers, The Point has plenty of stores and brands that everyone will love. Best of all, once you’ve shopped until you’ve (almost) dropped, you can re-energize at one of the center’s many restaurants or cafes. Say goodbye to the stress of the season by making holiday shopping a breeze at The Point!

YETI makes life on the road better than ever. The durable drinkware can be taken anywhere on the go, but their coolers are what they’re most famous for. Whether you’ve got a chronic camper or road-tripper on your hands, YETI never fails to impress. If a cooler is out of the budget, consider opting for one smaller yet equally beloved item. The YETI water bottles, tumblers and mugs keep your cold liquids icy and your hot liquids warm, while the durable dog bowls keep four-legged family members just as happy.

Those looking to take a longer break can sit down for lunch and explore the vibrant menu. Start things off on a light note with the salmon crudo and crispy prawns before warming up with a soothing bowl of pho or a banh mi sandwich. If you’ve turned your shopping excursion into a group affair, consider ordering the fried sea bass to share.
