Here, Maggie Fimia of Edmonds offers her suggestions for gift baskets made with items available in downtown Edmonds. Send us your ideas — and your photos of your Shop Edmonds adventures — and we’ll include them as part of our Shop Edmonds for the Holidays campaign!
Give an “Everything Edmonds” basket as gifts for Christmas, Hanakah, Birthdays or Anniversaries. It’s fun to pick a theme that matches the person you’re buying for.
Movie Buff Basket: Pop up to Petosas for their best popcorn and candy; bop over to the Edmonds Bookshop for a book on films or biographies of actors; mosey over to the Edmonds movie theater for some gift certificates!
Basket of Goodies: That’s easy! We have a wine shop, with lots of fun accessories; a cheese shop where you can buy outrageous goodies to go with the cheese; two great tea shops in town, a bakery, candy store – with cupcakes and numerous coffee shops and of course, Petosas’ with aisles of food full of delicious specialties.
Celebrating Nature Basket: Start at the Just Frogs Toads Too! Foundation on the waterfront – they sell wonderful toys and stuffed animals with an amphibian theme; trek over to the toy store for books, games and activities about nature and science. Finish at the card shop where you can find a fun photo album where photos of nature can be preserved and shared.
Bakers Basket: Browse the Bountiful Home gift shop on 4th in Edmonds for baking supplies and wonderful aprons; the Wooden Spoon on 5th has just about every gadget, baking dish, cookbooks and supplies you’ll need.
Edmonds even has a perfect place to buy your basket – The “Fabric of Life” on Main!
