We’ve curated a special collection of gift recommendations and specials directly from our local merchants. You can take care of your gift-buying needs conveniently all in downtown Edmonds.
Whether you are shopping for your special someone, looking for teacher gifts, helping Santa gather a few extra presents to delight a child, or maybe looking to get yourself a little somethin’, we’ve got you covered.
Rejoice and Rejuvenate
Self-care isn’t just a buzz word, it’s an important part of staying healthy. Giving the gift of a little time out to restore a sense of calm is always well-received.
If you have a new mom on your gift list, Body Motion Physical Therapy has a Mom Restoration Package, “for the mom in your life who always takes care of others and never makes time for herself. This is like a massage on steroids and is designed to not only make her feel great but create long-lasting change so she isn’t plagued by the stiffness, aches and pains that could be slowing her down.” The package includes remedies for everything from back pain and neck aches, to pesky pelvic floor issues. They tell us this is the gift that will change her life and have her enjoying more balance and energy.
A perennial favorite on many wish lists each year is massage. And Apple Catha Massage is one of the most popular massage therapists in Edmonds, offering “blissful massage in the heart of downtown Edmonds.” Right now you can receive $10 off the purchase of a gift certificate when you use the promo code DTED10 on her website.
Your purchase is handled online and seamlessly delivered by email. There is no limit, so feel free to get a massage for yourself. With all the hubbub of the busy holiday season, we think you deserve it!
Deck the Halls…Yours and Theirs
Seattle Stunning Events invites you to deck the halls with beautiful handmade holiday wreaths created and designed by local vendor Jillanne Arthur. You can also spread the cheer by gifting these wreaths to your family and friends. They make the perfect hostess gift to take to parties that your hostess can enjoy through the season!
‘Tis the season to sparkle and shine! J. Rankin Jewellers has a beautiful selection of sterling silver and gold jewelry with prices starting at $100. They also carry precious and semi-precious gemstones that are perfect for all ages on your shopping list.
Whether you are looking for a special necklace, earrings, bracelet or ring, the staff at J. Rankin Jewellers can help you discover the perfect bit of sparkle to put under the tree.
Wish them Wellness
With winter in full swing, combined with the stress many feel this time of year, the gift of wellness is a thoughtful one.
Edmonds Vitamins & Herbs has a gift tree set up in the store surrounded by a variety of wellness solutions, all for under $20. Also, they are offering $10 off of a $40 purchase to anyone coming in and mentioning this gift guide article (one per family, please).
Love and Light
Rogue is stocked this season with a wide variety of candles, which make fantastic last minute hostess gifts, Secret Santa selections, and can be the ideal purchase for that person on your list who seems to have everything.
They carry the delightfully-scented Capri Blue Candles — including festive sparkly ones in red and green. For that person on your list with a wicked sense of humor, make sure to check out the line from local Malicious Women Candle Co.
Add Pep to their Step
Walnut Street Coffee has an excellent selection of popular Miir and Hydroflask travel mugs perfect for the person on the go! Great for commuters, teachers and, well, really everyone. And when they bring them in for a fill-up, they receive 25 cents off their purchase. And to stay extra cozy, pick up a Walnut Street hoodie to sport on these chilly winter days.
From Greensleeves to Green Thumbs
Garden Gear & Gallery is the ideal place to shop for the gardening enthusiast on your list. Right now they have a selection of glass art made by local artists as well as many unique items for home and garden alike. They will be open every day until Dec. 24 for your shopping convenience (closing at 2:30 p.m. on the 24th).
For the Well-Styled (Santa) Baby
If you’ve got a little one to shop for, you need to stop in to Little Bipsy. They have a huge variety of darling baby items as well as fun gifts for women, new parents and even grandparents. The products are all thoughtfully developed not only for maximum style but with optimal quality in mind. Plus, the tiny shoes there are so adorable they are worth a visit by themselves!
Experience the Joy
For the budding musician, give the gift of Music Together classes at Alley Bell Music to your little one! Music Together classes are mixed age (0-5) and are a “full music immersion experience for you and your little ones through the use of song, rhythmic chant, instrument play, and movement activities.”
The classes are non-performance based and help children develop musical understanding via play. Contact Sarah Richàrd at [email protected] to purchase a gift certificate in any increment.
The gift of creativity is something anyone of any age can enjoy! A gift certificate from Glazed and Amazed makes a wonderful experiential gift. You can buy a gift certificate for your school-age children to paint their own creation during Winter Break, or gift it to the grandparents for a date with their grandchildren, or use for a fun date with your sweetie. Check out their calendar of upcoming classes, too.
And don’t forget the free holiday trolley runs the next two Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 6p.m.. Hop aboard and be whisked through downtown to visit all of our retailers!
