This one fashionista:

They love fashion and are always the hardest to buy! We have the solution: Why don’t you get the fashionista in your life unique handmade, sustainable jewelry from women? Twyla Dill is a Lake City artist who combines metalwork with crochet to create her own unique jewelry. The elaborate stitch work is based on a traditional Turkish art form called “Oya” – crocheted lace. Her pieces are simple enough to go with any outfit, but the unique designs are guaranteed to add a touch of personality. AND Twyla has put together her own gift guide to make it even easier!

Earrings, necklaces, rings, nose rings, and bracelets │Range from $ 68 to $ 1,500

The one who prioritizes comfort:

You hacked your life to wear sweatpants to work every day. You’re also someone you’re close to … we hope! Because they deserve new, comfortable underwear. There’s a Friday Harbor brand called Tush and Bush – a disrespectful name because the founder says their design solves a universal problem we all know: wedgies. This underwear stays exactly where it belongs and is made of super soft, environmentally friendly bamboo viscose!

Underwear, tank tops, and bralettes │ $ 32- $ 48

This outdoor fan:

How do you spend the vacation? Backpacking across the Olympics, of course! You will appreciate a practical gift, but it doesn’t have to be boring! Like socks ─ you need them, but why not a pair that you will love too? Local sock brand From the Ground Up was started by a UW graduate who grew up hiking in Lake Stevens. He designed the socks to be durable and comfortable – they are made from a merino wool blend called “Incredi-Wool”, which is bubble and odor resistant. They are also stylish! Each pair has a recognizable peak. But the best thing about it? Five percent of every sale is donated to the Washington Trails Association!

Socks and Masks $ 22- $ 75

That one husky fan:

All they have is purple and gold … but is it REAL gold? For the husky lover on your list, upgrade college swag by giving it UW diamonds. That’s right, Seattle-based Allison Claire Jewelry has a whole range of diamond necklaces, rings, and earrings with your favorite W logo. The collection includes 14 carat gold and up to 0.44 carat total carat weight in diamonds. The earrings are the latest addition to the collection and the perfect way to say “Go Dawgs!” in the style.

UW Earrings, Necklaces, and Rings │ $ 70- $ 1,500

This one beauty influencer:

They have a 10-step skin care routine that their followers swear by. But it doesn’t contain any Pour Moi skincare products … yet! Pour Moi is a climate friendly skin care company tailored to your specific skin care needs based on your environment. For example, if you live in west Washington, they suggest the Marine Set, which is intended for rainy climates. And if you live on the east side of the state, give the desert set a try! So if you’re looking for pampering gifts this season, you’ve come to the right place at Pour Moi. Make sure to check out their special vacation deals like their 5-piece WOW gift set ($ 69) and stocking filler day creams ($ 15).

Vacation Deals │ $ 15- $ 89

That one self care enthusiast:

Their place smells like heaven and they bathe regularly. While you certainly already have a fair share of candles, your collection is not complete until you have a BLK Sunflower candle. BLK Sunflower is a one-woman show based in Lakewood, directed by Jazmin Richards, that makes vegan, cruelty-free luxury candles. Within months of going online, BLK Sunflower was featured by Cosmopolitan, People, Harper’s Bazaar, Sheen and Elle. You can buy individual candles or smaller candle flights for your scent fan.

Candles and Flights $ 36- $ 79.99

This one plant parent:

You definitely don’t need plants anymore ─ sorry, plant Babies ─ but maybe you need a funky new pot to transplant one! For these plant parents, we recommend shopping at K2 Clay. Katie-Rose Fischer-Price is a Chimacum-based artist who makes ceramics with a lot of personality. Your handmade earthenware ceramics should make you smile ─ all of your creations have a face! While there may be some look-a-likes, Katie will never do the same face twice! All items are hand tossed, shaped, glazed, and fired in her home studio, and she sells them on her website.

Planters, Mugs, and Cups │ $ 36- $ 240

This one dog parent:

They won’t be silent about their fur baby, but you’re not mad about it! Make it easier for them to bring their pup to your home with a BusterBoy dog ​​mat! A Seattle dog mom came up with a way that dogs could ride in the car without them sliding all over the place ─ and she made a business out of it! The mats are designed to cover car seats and provide the pups with more traction. They’re also waterproof and don’t require buckles or straps. They have shell and bench sizes and also offer bespoke mats.

Dog Seat Mats │ $ 29- $ 69

This one cook:

They show up at holiday dinners to impress the judges with their signature dish and they expect to WIN. Seattle’s own head chef, Shota Nakajima, is usually known for running the Japanese restaurant, Taku, on Capitol Hill. He also made it to the finals in the last season of “Top Chef”. Now he’s bringing out something fun that will bring his name to your kitchen: a premium teriyaki sauce called Make Umami. Nakajima loves teriyaki sauce for its versatility, which is why it’s also the perfect gift for your local foodie.

This one mixologist:

You don’t drink beverages, You drink Cocktails. Give your mixologist friend some holiday SPIRIT this year, but don’t settle for plain alcohol. Instead, give them brandy that tells a story! Storm Tossed Rye is a whiskey that has matured in barrels on board the crab boats of “The Deadliest Catch”. No seriously. As soon as it returns ashore after its long journey, the Fremont Mischief Distillery makes and bottles the rye, and they swear that each crab boat really delivers a different taste – each one is worth a taste. See if she can taste the difference and then let them vote for their favorite!

That one snacker:

You are a charcuterie connoisseur, a hors d’oeuvre lover! It’s time to check out another small Seattle store that ships everywhere. It’s called the Bite Society and specializes in non-traditional gift baskets. They feature designs by a tattoo artist and are packed full of delicious items, mostly made in Seattle. The Bite Society was started by three women whose catering businesses dried up during the pandemic. So they turned around and came up with this very cool idea. There are four new gift baskets for the holidays: Snacks for the Sleigh contains a lot of crispy delicacies, the Holiday Bite is a larger snack set for getting together with family or friends, the Christmas Morning basket contains tea, coffee and jam, and the New Years basket offers everything for a colorful hodgepodge. They also have a basket called Very Vegan for your plant-based peeps.

Christmas Gift Baskets │ $ 139- $ 389

This one craftsman:

Whether you are a child or an adult who loves everything you can touch, we have the gift for your hobbyist. For the one on your list who loves to be festive and creative, why not give away a DIY cupcake kit from Trophy Cupcakes. The Seattle-based bakery has a Christmas kit and a Hanukkah kit, both of which contain a dozen cupcakes, vanilla buttercream, themed sugar toppers, sprinkles and candies, and disposable piping bags. This gift is also great for people on your list who don’t live nearby ─ You can ship the kits anywhere in the country with free shipping!

This one collector:

They are not dolls, they are not action figures, they are Funko Pops! And that person has it ALL Captain America, Doctor Who, Baby Yoda, ALL. Well, they actually lack one thing: themselves! Right, Funko can make bespoke figurines, which means that you get the collector on your list a miniature version of yourself to put on their shelf next to their favorite characters. Then she are your Favorite character! All you have to do is fill out a form with your choice of skin color, hair, clothes, etc. Funko then packages it in your own personalized pop! People box. It costs around $ 25 per Funko Pop! and there is a limit of two per person.

That one music freak:

They all have records, they all have tour t-shirts, but do they have an illustrated book full of never-before-seen photos from their favorite concerts? Rock’n’Roll photographer Steve Schnieder, who lives in Seattle, has been photographing concerts since the 1960s and this year published a collection of these photos in his book “First Three Songs”. With The Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Tom Petty and The Rolling Stones in their prime, First Three Songs comprises 220 pages with 350 photos from 5 decades. It makes a great gift for the rock star in your life.

Hardcover book in a case, hand-signed by Schneider │ $ 60

That special someone:

Whether it’s your mom or your lover, we all have someone on our list who deserves a slightly more personal gift. Well, we know an artist from Everett whose work would be a favorite one-off for this person. Jaime Escarpeta uses mixed media to visualize affirmations. Simply put, Jaime picks up sound waves of her clients’ personal messages or life events and captures the image of the sound in a work of art. She believes that art can be beautiful to look at and help people heal. AND this year it is offering a 50 percent discount on commissions until the end of the year!

The one who needs a short break:

You just need a break from reality, not ALL of us! If you’re looking to give away an experience, the historic Mayflower Park Hotel in downtown Seattle is the perfect place for a luxury getaway to the city. PLUS, if you book your room between now and December 31st, the hotel offers free guest rooms or suites and valet parking for one vehicle – plus a few Christmas presents: a tin souvenir and some Christmas chocolate!
