Groovy gifts from a bitchin' beach

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN BEACH (CBS 8) - When it comes to holiday shopping, Newport Avenue in Ocean Beach is like Rodeo Drive without the Botox or the big price tags. Here you'll find gifts that are as rare as the ocean air.

This Christmas, give the gift of life.

"These are our hermit crabs. We have small, medium and large," a shop employee said.

They come encased in San Diego's only affordable housing.

The perfect gift doesn't have to cost a lot.

"Maybe something as simple as a bumper sticker for your relatives," a shop employee said.

There are beach sweet treats.

"They're Nutter Butters and they're dipped in chocolate," a shop worker said.

The Black is the place if you're into more traditional gift giving, and if there's a newborn on your list, nothing spreads joy quite like a Frankenstein onesy.

Just head up Newport for an Oprah Winfrey comic book, or if you're into Christmas collectibles.

When you shop in OB, you not only get great gift ideas, but you also can soak up a little local color.
