If you want unique and hard-to-find holiday gifts for your special someone or for yourself, then head to the 2014 Home Tour Boutique on Saturday, December 6.

Holiday Look In Boutique will feature dozens of fashion and accessories, gifts and decor, and gourmet food shops from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

On the same day, Holiday Look In will host a tour of four distinct Pasadena homes featuring work by famous designers, starting at 4:00 p.m.

The 2014 Holiday Look In Boutique at Ambassador Auditorium will showcase a wide range of offerings—from sophisticated jewelry to hostess gifts and other items not available in retail stores.

Among the fashion and accessory shops onsite will be the Borrowed Bling, featuring genuine diamonds and man-made jewels at “pocket-friendly” prices; Just4You Handbags, with functional yet fashionable totes for day errands and evening outings; Yearsley Company, selling sophisticated dresses, tops, jackets and pants; and Ronelle Designs, with faux jewelry pieces that include pendants, necklaces, bracelets and varied earrings.

Looking to deck the halls?  Look for 1818 Studio Candles, Hostess Gifts to Go , Cozy Dream, Fabrinique, Bee Cottage and Lady Bug Designs to find just what you need to make your season (and home) a little brighter.

And what are the holidays without indulging in the gourmet food by Dillon Culinary, Charter Oak Preserving Co., Dillon Culinary, Gourmet Blends and Alvins of San Francisco?

Complimentary refreshments will be served and no ticket is required to visit the boutique.

The Holiday Look In Home Tour, meanwhile, will enable visitors to view four distinctive homes in the Pasadena area, decorated for the holiday season by prominent floral designers.

This year’s designers include Drew Domenghini. Margit Holakoui, Ixora Floral Studio and Jacob Maarse.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Pasadena Symphony and POPS annual concert series, as well as the educational outreach and community engagement programs such as the Pasadena Youth Symphony Orchestra, Pasadena Young Musicians Orchestra, and Pasadena All-City Orchestra.

Tickets for the home tour, which will also be held on December 7, costs $35 in advance and $40 at the door. Visit to purchase tickets online.
