Hostess Gifts, Stocking Stuffers + More

by Kelsi in


 

Whether you need a hostess gift, a stocking stuffer, something special for your wife, or something for yourself, here is a round-up of some knock-out gifts for giving this season.

If you live in Seattle, these are a few of the local shops you should hit up...

Stock & Pantry on Capitol Hill

Flora and Henri in Pioneer Square

Marine Area 7 in Madison Valley

Little Lago in Portage Bay is a fantastic place to not only pick up something for lunch but is also an expertly curated shop and has you covered for the perfect hostess gift. This little Italian grocer has a lovely selection of wines, olive oils, Rancho Gordo beans and these gorgeous jams from Ayako & Family, which are my personal go-to gift for any occasion...

I also personally would love to have this tote I just saw on their site...

For the cook in your life, you can't go wrong with a beautiful apron from Hedley & Bennett (you can even order them in petite for short people like me)...

A fun game to play after the kids have been put to bed...

I have loved using this beautiful ceramic diffuser this past year. It sits on my nightstand and I use it every night, almost always with eucalyptus oil...

The best ice cream scoop out there and a pint or two of Frankie + Joe's would be well-received...

If you don't have something in mind for your wife yet, these tiny sapphire beauties can be found at Flora and Henri. I tried them on way back in August and am still dreaming about them...

Finally, these two cookbooks are my most favorite from this year and would be a great addition to anyone's cookbook library. Buy them at another local favorite, Book Larder.
