Favored by locals and visitors alike, AREO is a treasure trove of chic goods.
This summer, Laguna Beach boutique AREO marks its 20th anniversary. AREO specializes in beautiful gifts and home décor, hand selected bath accessories, greeting cards, books and handmade jewelry from local artisans. Co-owner Dave Thomas searches flea markets at home and abroad for unique and unusual merchandise based on aesthetic and value. AREO is now known for both its quality and distinctive selection. AREO carries out its attention to detail and design in its signature gift-wrap—a hand-stamped craft box, satin ribbon and French gold wax seal—the perfect presentation for a thoughtful gift for a friend. 207 Ocean Ave., Laguna Beach, 949-420-2741. areohome.com
