We’ve scoured the neighborhood this year in search of memorable gifts that suit a variety of occasions, from holiday get-togethers to Valentine’s Day celebrations.
1. Swing by EWF Modern to pick up this handy wine-glass measuring cup, which you can use to determine exactly how much Madeira to add to your chicken-and-mushroom sauce, or simply to sip your favorite Oregon pinot noir while you cook. 2. These artful plates from French Quarter Linens lend rustic refinement to any meal (and a touch of irony, if wild game is on the menu). 3. These elegantly embroidered linen tea towels also come from French Quarter Linens. 4. Traditional roseflavored Turkish Delight is just one standout among the globally inspired sweets and treats at World Foods. 5. Use these walnutshaped erasers from Blick Art Materials as part of a festive table setting—or to fix miscues on place settings and recipe cards. 6. Add a little botanical complexity to your cocktails with Dutch’s Spirits cocktail bitters, available at World Foods. 7. Sitting around the fireplace on a chilly evening feels that much cozier with a mug of hot chocolate made with this rich mix from Penzeys Spices. 8. Whole Foods has a terrific selection of delectable Oregon cheeses, imported olives, and charcuterie. Create your own spread using this marbleand- rosewood cheese board from Christopher David, which is also your source for these simple yet handsome brass servers. 9. A thoughtful gift for the java aficionado in your life: this handmade coffee journal from Oblation Papers & Press.
