Holiday Gift Certificates & Printed Matter

For your holiday shopping needs or gifting any time of year, we are happy to offer gift certificates redeemable for any of our live webinars, or to view a past webinar On-Demand. Choose from histories of The Bradbury Building, Grand Central Market, The Dutch Chocolate Shop, Angels Flight Railway, Downtown L.A. Tunnels, Raymond Chandler, The Black Dahlia, Charles Bukowski, The Cecil Hotel and much more.

If you prefer to browse visually, you can window shop here.

For a little more weight in their holiday stocking, we recommend combining a webinar gift certificate with a Los Angeles history keepsake in the form of a map, travel guide or book. We’ve got some pretty neat stuff in the souvenir shop. Want to offer more flexibility? Here is a gift card good for printed matter or webinars.

If you love our subscriber edition newsletter packed with virtual visits to archives and offbeat landmarks, you can give that as a gift, too.

Do they love Raymond Chandler and film noir? Try The Raymond Chandler Map of Los Angeles (2014 edition) or the long out-of-print Aaron Blake Raymond Chandler Map (1980s). Do they dig weird true crime and Raymond Chandler? The Kept Girl is a mystery novel about a real 1920s cult on old Bunker Hill, and features Chandler as a sleuth on their case. (There is a fancy Art Deco edition, too.)

Do they long to explore the coolest businesses, restaurants and landmarks in the Southland? How To Find Old Los Angeles is the armchair travel guide they need. Or do they dream about driving the Mother Road to Chicago and back? Bob Waldmire’s Old Route 66 Map belongs in their glove box. Or how about a self-guided tour of Charles Bukowski’s Los Angeles, a history of Angels Flight Railway, or a fold-out map of weird Cults in Southern California (and beyond) or Los Angeles writers’ homes and haunts?

Esotouric is here to make it easy to give the gift of Los Angeles history, culture, mystery and delight to everyone on your list. Webinar gift certificates can be emailed for immediate gifting, or send by mail. Questions about the webinars or printed matter? Just ask!
