The Art of Giving


Gifts look and feel extra special when wrapped in artful supplies from Oblation Papers & Press (shown above).


Modern Classics

Stylish gifts for the special—and discerning—someone in your life.

The Crown of Daisies—one of the dozens of “memory block” tiles created by British Columbia artist Sid Dickens available at Bella Casa—makes a beautiful decorative accent for the home or office. // Surely a java aficionado you know could use a new mug—or two—from Pearl Hardware. // Masterpieces for the modern mantel include this bust of Michelangelo’s David from Blick Art Materials and a cheeky brass squirrel bottle opener from Jonathan Adler. // TOMS has just the right pair of shades to protect your eyes from the winter sun. // The inventory at Powell’s Books is greater than 2 million titles, from Amy Schumer to Atlas Obscura. // Spread holiday cheer with a whimsical handmade card from Oblation Papers. // Then capture the moment with a Lomography camera from Blick. // And be sure to back up your valuable files with Storables’ glittering-gold micro USB cable.


Taste Makers

Add pizzazz to your next holiday party, or delight your favorite gourmand with these exquisite edibles and culinary accoutrements.

World Foods stocks an astounding—and delicious—assortment of sweets, including these Jacobsen Salt Co. Salty Honey Nut Chews, made with Bee Local honey. // It’s not a proper celebration without a bouquet of fragrant florals from Sammy’s Flowers. // Usher in the New Year with a bottle of bubbly—perhaps this Tasmanian Jansz rosé. You’ll find a deftly curated selection at Thelonious Wines. // Sparkling wine pairs perfectly with a decadent dessert, such as this berry cheesecake from Whole Foods. // Our favorite kitchen gadgets for the season? The sleek stove-top Moka Pot from Caffè Umbria, and this elegant yet functional wooden peppermill from Penzeys Spices. // These gorgeous Jonathan Adler agate coasters with silver-electroplate trim could be the silver lining of anyone’s season. // French Quarter Linens carries this simple but sophisticated Italian linen tablecloth, the perfect backdrop for a magnificent holiday feast.


Little Luxuries

Pamper yourself—or your significant other—with these indulgent treasures. 

Set the mood with this candle, holder, and decorative matches from Pearl Hardware. // Echo Natural Beauty has the tools for feeling fresh and rejuvenated this winter, including Alima Pure eyeshadow and blush, and May Lindstrom’s Jasmine Garden facial spray. // The Pearl excels when it comes to women’s fashion: consider this flattering Free People bra from Altitude. // Also check out the pearl-and-glass bead necklace from Silkwood Boutique, and the whimsical Fremont Bridge cuff bracelet from Betsy & Iya.


Great Outdoors

Rushing waterfalls, pine-shaded hiking trails, snow-draped mountain peaks—even in winter, the Pacific Northwest is a magical playground.

Brave the elements with this colorful Portland-themed cap from Altitude and waterproof, taffeta-lined Urbane Jacket available at NAU. // Filson’s 24-hour rain-repellent tin-cloth briefcase will keep your valuable papers and documents secure. // Let there be light—and music—around the campfire with this stylish Pablo Uma Lantern from EWF Modern, complete with an LED glow, surround-sound speakers, and Bluetooth connectivity. // Don your all-weather leather-and-wool Slater boots from KEEN, and carry your picnic supplies in REI’s soft-sided Yeti Cooler. // What’s a walk in the park without your adorable four-legged friend? Before you send him out to retrieve this Patagonia logo Frisbee, dress him warmly in a comfy doggie jacket from LexiDog Boutique.
