The holidays are fast approaching, and there’s nothing worse than scrambling to find the perfect, thoughtful gift for everyone on your list at the last minute. Don’t worry—Pepper’s is here to help with our annual local Seattle holiday gift guide.
Check out some of these awesome gift ideas from local Seattle-area businesses and get your shopping done early this year!
Custom Macarons from Macadons
These macarons from Macadons are not just delicious, they’re also customizable! Personalize these tasty treats by sending the folk at Macadons your unique image, logo, design, or message and choosing from their many handcrafted flavors for a perfect holiday gift. Pick them up at their White Center location or have them delivered up to 18 miles from the store.
Gifts for the Book Lover from Magus Books
Support one of the University District’s oldest independent bookstores this holiday season and visit Magus Books. With over 70,000 books in-store, try and stay focused because you might just get lost in the stacks! For the reader in your life, pick up a gift certificate to the store or check out some of their cool merch, including tote bags, hats, and mugs.
Vinyl, CDs, and Merch from Sonic Boom
If there’s one thing Seattle knows—it’s music. Sonic Boom Records in Ballard has been around since the peak of the grunge era, and has been a great source for new and used vinyl, CDs, and cassettes ever since. They also sell gift certificates, shirts and hoodies on their website if you’re not quite sure what type of music your giftee is into.
Aromatherapy Candles from Thea Candle Company
Once the days get colder, darker, and busier, taking a moment to light a candle and relax becomes a gift in itself. Local candlemaker Thea Candle Company knows the importance of comfort and stress-release, and it’s evident in their handcrafted aromatherapy candles. Thea Candle Co. also uses natural oils and eco-friendly wax so you can feel good about what you’re buying. Fall scents include Morning Coffee, Fresh Baked Apple Pie and Rosemary Eucalyptus. Stay tuned for their winter release!
Stress-Relieving Sweat Session at City Sweats Infrared Sauna Studio and Spa
Sometimes the best gift is not one that you can hold, but one you experience. If you’re looking for the perfect holiday gift for someone who seems to never slow down, why not give a gift certificate to City Sweats? This infrared sauna, studio, and spa has locations in West Seattle, Madison, Wallingford, and Bellevue, and offers a variety of stress-relieving, luxurious spa services.
Gorgeous Minimalist Jewelry from Baleen
You can’t go wrong with local jewelry-maker Baleen’s delicate, minimalist jewelry. Their focus on quality work, affordability, as well as sustainability make it a no-brainer for holiday shopping. From layering rings and chains to unique geometric earrings, Baleen has something for everyone on your list. Their website even has a “Most Gifted” section so you can see what’s popular, and maybe pick something out for yourself as well.
Photo Sesh With a Four-Legged Friend from Dirty Dog Photography
Photos are memories that can last a lifetime, and Dirtie Dog Photography knows that our time with our animals should be cherished. Book the animal lover on your list a session with Marika Moffitt that will honor the story of them and their pet. Sessions can take place anywhere in the Greater Seattle Area, and photos can also be turned into a beautiful photo book.
Beer Gift Box From Tavour
Although Tavour is based in Seattle, they now source and distribute independent craft beer from all across the country. Choose from their numerous beer gift box options, scoop up a gift card, or really treat your special someone to a beer box subscription, where each month a new package of delicious craft beer will arrive on their doorstep. Cheers!
