MEMORABLE LOCAL GIFT IDEAS – BY SPOKANE EATS

Extra memorable gift ideas to celebrate those you love this holiday season in honor of SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY!!

1. Tohst Fire Pit 

First, they’re gorgeous and look so sleek and nice on your patio. Second, they’re LOCALLY owned and made in Spokane! Third, they’re portable so you can move them wherever you want, whenever you want!

Every year, I search long and hard for the perfect gift for Dan. It can be so hard to shop for husbands and I always try to think of something he didn’t know he wanted/needed to really surprise him with a gift our family can love and cherish for years to come! This year, it was easy! I knew I had to get him a Tohst Modern Nomad Fire Pit!

I worked with them earlier in the year and fell in love, then Dan got to see them in action at the “Market in the Mountains” event and he was hooked! We’ve been waiting for them to go on sale and BAM! Now is the time to buy! You can now enjoy 20% off their products until Dec 4. Save even more if you use code SPOKANEEATS at checkout!

2. The Light Factory

I never realized how much the lighting in your home can effect the style, mood and design until I had to select a fixture for every single room a few months ago as our home build was in the final stages. After seeing Ashlie’s glass bubble chandeliers years ago, I just knew I HAD to have one in my home someday. That someday is very soon because we just ordered her 31 bubble chandelier and I’m like a giddy little girl waiting for it to arrive! It’s the final piece missing from our bathroom and I know it will bring me joy every day as I admire the craftsmanship.

These stunning chandeliers are even more beautiful in person (you can see for yourself at ‘From Here’ on the second floor of River Park Square mall). Each fixture is handmade right here in the PNW!

They have lots of shapes, sizes, and colors so you can completely customize your fixture to fit your unique space and style. They’re also currently offering a holiday special – use code ‘HappyHolidays15’ for 15% off sitewide and free shipping.

3. Relaxation – Massage + Facial

Whether you’re deciding to treat yourself, treat a loved one, or if you just want to send your man a link to this article as a not so subtle hint, we highly recommend a facial + massage combo at one of these three fabulous locally owned and operated spas! We love each of them for different reasons!

4. Armoire Clothing Subscription

Instead of getting your loved ones one article of clothing, how about you gift them an unlimited wardrobe with a subscription to Armoire Style! Whether you’re gifting to a busy working woman, a fashionista, or a lounge-wear lover, rest-assured they will find fabulous styles that fit their ‘look’ and make them feel great and confident with Armoire.

Armoire has taken so much of the stress out of the daily – “I have nothing to wear” comment we so often tell ourselves. Now, I browse their site at the beginning of each week and in a few days, I have a whole new wardrobe perfect for business meetings, special events, lounging on the couch, brunch, errands, and everything in between that I can wear to my heart’s desire then swap out for something new!

If you’re wanting to style someone this holiday season but don’t know where to start, a gift card to armoire is a great option. Find them here: http://support.armoire.style/gifts . Enter code ‘spokaneeats’ at checkout for the best deal on your first month, PLUS 2 free bonus items in your first case.

5. Ultimate Cooking Experience

A private cooking class at The Kitchen Engine! You can rent the entire space for a special holiday party, birthday party, date night, etc and enjoy one-on-one instruction with our friends and loved ones.

If you’re looking for something a little more laid back, you can also just book a seat or two in a class featuring their favorite cuisine or dessert!

6. Timeless Furniture / Home décor

At this point, we think over 50% of the furniture and décor in our house is from The Tin Roof & Bide and Burgeon. We love shopping from these businesses for our big investment pieces because they have fabulous protection plans (so we don’t have to worry about our kids stick fingers, but we can still enjoy quality, great pieces in our home).

When you shop at these stores, know that the furniture you purchase will be in your home forever and passed down for generations to come! I’d way rather spend more on a fabulous, ultra comfortable couch that I know I will cherish forever, rather than something far cheaper that will wear out, break, or stain after a year or so… Speaking from experience J

Your best bet is shopping in store and working with one of their many talented employees to ensure you get the absolute best piece for your space and style. The Tin Roof has been in business in Spokane since 1945 and they’re extremely trusted and respected in our community!

7. A Season Pass

We are big into finding gifts that can last more than just a day, week, or even month. How about a gift that your loved one can enjoy all year long!

If you’re shopping for someone who loves culture and the arts: We suggest a season pass to the Civic Theater! https://spokanecivictheatre.com/

If you’re shopping for someone who loves adventure and thrill: We suggest a season pass to Mt. Spokane! https://www.mtspokane.com/

8. Skincare

Clean, clinically trusted, and confident skincare by Anfisa. The owner Aly is a fabulous local entrepreneur that developed this skincare brand after years of dealing with acne with no great, natural solution. The Skin LILOU Radiant Hydra Balm very quickly grew a cult-following, and for good reasons!

She has since developed AN-DEW 10% Azelaic Acid + PHA Serum and we are big fans of this product as well!

9. Meat

Gifting food is kind of our love language! This year, we’re recommending a box of PNW raised meat from The Herd. It almost feels like you’re raising your own cattle, but they’re actually doing all the work and you just get to reap the rewards!

This meat is fresh as can be, raised right, and conveniently packaged and available for delivery across our region! Pair the meat box with some spices from Spiceology for the ultimate WOW factor.

10. Outdoor Cooking

Have someone on your list who’s the ultimate grill master? Consider or Traeger from Falcos or a Blackstone Griddle from The General Store. I gifted Dan a Traeger a few years ago and I feel like I get to feel like the gift fairy every time we use it! Which is A LOT!

11. High-quality Jewelry

Not only do we have some fabulous high-quality jewelry options in town, but we have lots of options that are designed and created right here in our community!

Natalie Wood Designs

I have been obsessed with Natalie and her mission and jewelry since I met her over 5 years ago! She’s a Christian mama who moved her family from the South to the PNW years ago and has never looked back! She designs each and every piece by hand and her love for the art and craftsmanship can be felt and seen every time you wear her jewelry. She makes earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and even handbags!

Enjoy 25% off sitewide with code BlackFriday for a limited time

Manna Shop Fine Jewelry

I first discovered this shop on Sherman in Coeur d’Alene only a few weeks ago but I’ve thought about it many times since visiting! The shop has a variety of ‘goods for thoughtful living’ as well as an incredible hand-made, uniquely crafted jewelry. They sell everything from one-of-a-kind engagement rings to simple hand stamped birth follower and initial necklaces. If you’re reading this, Santa (cough cough Dan), I want one of these rings for Christmas.

Millianna Jewelry

We discovered Millianna years ago and got to interview the two owners and creators and learn all about their history working in fashion, what inspires their designs, the hardworking women that make their pieces and so much more!

Their pieces are sophisticated, modern, and incredibly unique. Their styles have often been seen on fashion runways and worn by celebrities! When you wear this jewelry, expect to be asked about it- they’re fabulous conversation pieces!
