Face it—the holidays are coming sooner than you think they are. You probably should start thinking about what to get your Cousin Timmy and Great-Aunt Pernelia. Let's face it—you can't always send gift cards. So that means there's almost no time left to buy stuff for yourself without feeling guilty that you aren't also shopping for gifts at the same time.

That's where West Coast Craft comes in. 

This weekend, the inaugural craft and design show will be held at Fort Mason. The design show features wood, metal, leather, and paper goods from local artisans and companies, including Taylor Stitch, Gravel and Gold, and Western Editions. Well over 150 makers will be represented, so you're sure to find something.

In the slideshow above, check out some of our favorite items. Find something you like. And, you know, if you happen to run into anything that you might think you'd want to give us, we wouldn't say no. The gift cards are getting a little stale, don't you think?

The West Coast Craft will take place on November 16 & 17, 2013 from 10am to 6pm at Fort Mason. For more details, click here.
