OK fine, sometimes it's OK to go to the mall. But I'm lifting my moratorium on the sole condition that you use it on Under One Roof's holiday store at Westfield Centre. The shop, which is mainly staffed by volunteers and has a year-round location at 518A Castro, has been benefiting San Francisco's HIV/AIDS community since 1990 with its sales. Brave the melee at Westfield for the shop's killer selection of Christmas tree ornaments (starting at $8.95), SF/Castro-themed clothes, and a heap of toys for the shorter set.

Westfield San Francisco Centre, 865 Market, SF. (415) 978-9877,
