June is here and our calendars are packed with graduation parties, bridal showers, weddings, Father's Day gatherings, house warming parties and more. Don't be stressed by trying to find a present out of town or online, Downtown Hollister has great places to find gifts that your loved ones will cherish. 

Shopping downtown is a perfect way to find something unique while supporting a local, small business. Plus, it is such fun meeting the small business owners and the people behind the counter - community at its finest. 

Take a look inside a few of our downtown stores. 

San Benito Bene

San Benito Bene is a locally inspired gift shop with something for everyone. You can pick up award-winning olive oil, gourmet chocolates, jewelry, bath products and more. I found some beautiful pencil pouches, specialty cards and notebooks, all perfect for a new graduate.

Hours: Monday-Friday 10 AM - 6 PM, Saturday & Sunday 10 AM - 5 PM



Johnnie's Girl

Johnnie's Girl is owned and operated by a mother-daughter-duo who are passionate about sharing hand-made crafts with the community. Everything in this shop is either made by the owners, Patty and Sarah, or by a local crafter. There is not doubt when you take something home from Johnnie's Girl that it was made with love! If you are looking for home decor or a one-of-a-kind gift, you'll find it here. They always have items for the upcoming holidays. I found some great Father's Day gifts.

She's Consignment Shop

When you walk into this shop, you feel like you are walking into a home - you are sure to find something really special. They have everything from jewelry and home decor, to vintage baby clothes and china. It would be a perfect place to find "something blue" for a soon-to-be bride. She's makes the treasure hunt easy by keeping things organized and displaying items in useful ways.
