The holidays are a busy time. Lighten your load by using our holiday gift guides, organized by interest and age, to narrow your shopping choices. You might even find a few things for your own wish list!

Whether you’re looking for the latest outdoor gear, a cool home décor item or a gift that a teenager won’t scoff at, we have ideas for you. Find wellness items for the friend who needs to unwind and garden gear for your favorite green thumb. We have the most anticipated books and music, tech finds and picks for the kids (including the furry kind). And, of course, you’ll find great items from dozens of local makers and companies, highlighting the talents of the residents of the Pacific Northwest.

Happy holidays, and happy shopping!

Instead of material goods, give a shared experience this year, so visiting friends and family can leave with light luggage and full memories.
