Walking through Gum Tree, a cafe and gifts shop just blocks from the ocean in Hermosa Beach, California, is a feast for the
senses. Founded by husband-and-wife team Will and Lori Ford (an Australian chef and fashion industry alum, respectively),
the 100-year-old Craftsman house-turned-commercial space is packed with sumptuous scarves, vibrant throw pillows, and salt-air
scented candles, plus a host of Aussie-inspired menu items such as meat pies and Vegemite sandwiches made fresh daily. The
store, separated into curated rooms filled with dining, home, bath, fashion, and kids accessories, is designed as a one-stop
shop for everyone on your gift list, no matter your budget.
