Make life easy and get your holiday shopping done at once at these haute five Southern California locales.
1 South Coast Plaza
If you're looking for sugar, spice and everything nice (and completely luxe), you need only head to this Orange County luxury shopping mecca to get your gifts. Want watches? Jaeger-LeCoultre, Patek Philippe and Piaget are available. Luxury threads from Barbara Bui, Chanel, Faconnable and Fendi should do the trick. Baccarat, La Perla and Longchamp are also just a few of the brands available. We told you so.

2 Rodeo Drive
Rodeo Drive was recently named the second most expensive shopping street in America, and for good reason. It's putting on the ritz! Westime, Hublot and Geary's are joined by the likes of Bottega Veneta, Breguet, Bvlgari, Cartier, Frette and Jimmy Choo. Heck, you name it, and it's expensive, it's here.
Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills 90210
3 The Grove
Rick Caruso's shopping destination has a homey, holiday feel, where you'll be able to ride Santa's train and gaze at endless decorations (and a massive tree) as you're doing your holiday shopping. Barneys New York and Nordstrom are joined by newcomers like the Nike store, Honest Beauty, Paige and Topshop. At the end of your day, treat yourself seasonally themed chocolate treats at Dylan's Candy Bar.
189 The Grove Dr, Los Angeles, CA 90036 (323) 900-8080
4 Americana at Brand
A second Caruso Affiliated property tops our list for the same home-away-from-home community reason as the first. Glendale's Americana at Brand hosts stores like Tumi, Tory Burch, Tiffany & Co., Diane von Furstenberg and The Art of Shaving - the perfect spot to find items to fill up your stocking (and then some).

5 The Beverly Center
The haute residents of Beverly Hills head to The Beverly Center when they want to get their glamorous goods in one fell swoop. This glam indoor shopping center hosts a plethora of high-end stores such as Dolce & Gabbana, Giuseppe Zanotti Design, Saint Laurent Paris, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo and Versace. The hard part: actually getting gifts for others while you're getting sidetracked shopping designer threads for yourself.
