If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to check out some unique stores. While Alcatraz t-shirts, mini cable cars, and Ghirardelli chocolate are still shopping classics—here's some inspiration for more original mementos from the Bay Area.

Something from McEvoy Ranch's body-care line, like their olive mud soap or their gardener's hand salve, all made with locally produced, organic olive oil. 2. A book published by City Lights, like one of their new political dynamos or something old-school like Allen Ginsberg's evergreen Howl. 3. A Phthalates-free EarthLust stainless-steel water bottle overlaid with intricate graphics, of say, an owl, that you can stylishly sip from while climbing the hills, available at Spring. 4. A cashmere weekender cardigan from Margaret O'Leary—something to live in every Saturday. 5. A collectible bottle of California wine from K&L Wine Merchants or a rare Armagnac from D&M Wines and Liquors. 6. A striking porcelain tea and coffee service designed by the renowned chef Thomas Keller, found at Gump's. More on San Francisco Photo Credit: Robert Holmes
